It’s that time of year again, shops are starting to stock Christmas decorations and presents, and the anxiety about organizing everything in time for the big day is starting to build.
Have you ever thought about just…not doing it? Instead of spending months planning decorations and presents, and agonizing over how to cook the perfect Christmas dinner, why not treat yourself and the people closest to you to a Christmas break where you focus on quality time together?
Quality Family Time
Going away for Christmas is the perfect opportunity to reconnect as a family without spreading yourself too thin trying to fit in visits to every obscure family member that lives within driving distance. If you’re away as a group the focus will be just on spending time with one another, relaxing and celebrating.
Bucks Fizz In A Hot Tub
Make your Christmas holiday even more spectacular by treating yourself to luxury accommodation. For example, awayresorts.co.uk offer rock star level accommodation where you can stay in a lodge with a hot tub! Imagine spending your Christmas morning drinking Bucks Fizz in your very own hot tub before opening your gifts - what bliss!
Save Yourself The Christmas Day Washing Up
Have you ever spent your Christmas morning peeling vegetables and cooking, wishing that you could just be doing something more fun? Christmas dinner takes hours to make and seemingly seconds to eat! And then you have to wash it all up again…
Wouldn’t it be much nicer if you could choose your Christmas dinner option from a menu, sit down and enjoy it with your family, and then be done? Well if you go away for Christmas, that’s exactly what you can do!
Spectacular Post Lunch Walks
The UK offers some of the most stunning countryside in the world, absolutely perfect for a post Christmas lunch walk!
For example, if you choose Lincolnshire as the site of your Christmas break then you are absolutely spoiled for choice when it comes to a beautiful winter walk.
Try the Gunby ice house pond walk which is a gentle mile long walk, and allows you to see the remains of the former Gunby village which disappeared in 1700. Alternatively, you could visit Lincoln Castle where you can walk along the Medieval wall, Victorian prison and the Magna Carta vault building. You can even bring your dog with you on certain weekends throughout the year.
If you’d like to take in some wildlife on your Christmas break then pay a visit to the Donna Nook National Nature Reserve. Every November and December the seals return from the sea and give birth to their pups near the sand dunes.
Avoid The Boxing Day Blues
Going away for the Christmas period means that you avoid the shocking crash back to earth on Boxing Day when you realise that Christmas is over! You can continue to celebrate and enjoy your family time together right up until the time you go home.
