With COVID-19 making holidays abroad incredibly difficult, people are quickly switching their trips in Menorca and Mykonos for places like Durham and the North York Moors. This is great for the UK’s tourism industry which has taken a hit during lockdown, where VisitBritain modelled a 55% loss in expected inbound tourism for 2020 .
So if you’re thinking about making the switch to staycations, we’ve written up three reasons why you should consider staycations with Maguires Country Parks.
You can go away more regularly
By owning a holiday home at a Maguires Country Park, you can go away whenever you fancy! All of our parks are open 365 days of the year. Utter bliss…
In fact, Willerby’s Great British Break Off survey suggests that this is exactly why 30% of people think regular staycations are key to your wellbeing, and we completely agree!
When you need to get away from it all, just jump in the car and drive down. Forget the faff of airplanes, travel insurance and the dreaded security lines to be expected with international holidays. Sign us up!
Enjoy the British countryside
With so much to see on your own doorstep, a holiday home at a Maguires Country Park gives you even more chance to make the most of the Great British countryside.
There’s also a whole host of amazing attractions on the doorstep of each Maguires park. Northumberland National Park, Bamburgh and Berwick Castle, plus Beamish Living Museum to name a few! The best bit about staycations is that by being a tourist in our own country is that you get to give back to the economy, especially after a tough year for tourism. Sounds like a win win for us.
Bring your four-legged friend
One of the best things about switching to staycations is that you’ll never need to arrange for kennels and that heartbreaking moment of leaving your dog whilst you go abroad on holiday. Would you believe that 85% of dog owners would rather staycation in the UK with their dog than go away without them !? Well, all of our parks are dog-friendly, the perfect solution!
With a holiday home at a Maguires Country Park, your four-legged friends can be an important part of your staycations in the North. Bring them along and let them enjoy their own holiday in the countryside, with so many new walks to explore!
