Weekend getaways are what give meaning to working all week. Planning a weekend getaway doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate, it just has to be something that you enjoy doing and we’re here to give you a few ideas of things to do on your next weekend getaway.
Book a Hotel for a Bit of Luxury and Pampering
If you have had an excessively hard week, you may be in need of a little tender loving care, and what better way to achieve that than a night or two in a hotel where you are waited on hand and foot; no cleaning, cooking, or chauffeuring anyone around. If this sounds like the kind of weekend that you need, consider the Scarborough area, there are some beautiful hotels near Scarborough at affordable rates that offer a wide array of amenities.
Water and Beach Side Activities
Watergate Bay just north of Newquay offers some of the best water sports and activities in the area including:
Or if you prefer something a little less active, let the kiddies take a surfing lesson while you relax at one of the beach-side spas.
For those who just need to get away from everything Carmarthenshire, Wales is for you. This hidden valley has no mobile signal making it the perfect place to escape. For only around £200 you can book a week at one of the two cottage style inns; Mill Stream Cottage or The Wren’s Nest.
Stay on a Boat in the Capital
One of the most unique UK weekend getaways is the City Boat in London. Located near the Tower of London, this 1930’s coal barge has been refurbished into a completely modern houseboat that is decorated with up to date architectural detailing, and a modern industrial décor. Because the environment is so lavish, you won’t feel like you are in the heart of one of the busiest cities in the world; all you will feel is peaceful relaxation and indulgence.
Take a trip to Scotland
Spend a weekend in a Hobbit inspired Scottish bunkhouse that sleeps up to eight. Sleep in the bunkhouse, but spend your day kayaking, hiking, and climbing along the base of the Monadhliath Mountains as you wonder the highlands of Scotland.
Get your Farmer’s Tan on
Live as the farmers do when you explore Beechenhill Farm. This is the ideal family retreat for families with active children. You and your family will get to experience feeding the chickens, milking the cows, and an assortment of other duties required on a daily bases in order to run this organic farm. Don’t forget to partake in the scrumptious breakfast and Sue’s adventure Maps for the full farming experience.
A weekend getaway can be whatever you want it to be, whether you enjoy camping, the beach, or just finding unique hideaways in the heart of the city. It doesn’t really matter what you do, as long as you find something that you enjoy and go do it.
