With so few countries currently on the ‘green list’, why not swap your summer holiday for a new house this year? We’ve got a variety of homes that are ready for you to move into ready for the Summer. So, all you’ll need to do is light the BBQ, crack open the bubbles and pick your favourite sunbathing spot in your new garden. Bliss!
We know everyone has spent a lot of time at home during the past year, but there are lots of little ways to switch up your routine, get your taste buds into holiday mode meals and enjoy activities that are reminiscent of an exotic getaway. Here are our top tips to make the most of your Summer holiday at home.
Block out time in your diary
To really feel like you’re taking a break from the norm and setting aside time to relax, the first thing to do is blocking out a specific week, or long weekend, in your calendar. This will not only allow you to plan everything around the dates, but also ensure you feel like there is some specific time set aside to relish being at home.
Get your tastebuds tingling!
Scrap your usual midweek recipes for the week! Instantly get a taste for summer by planning a menu for breakfast, lunch and evening meals that is based on traditional cuisines from the country you were hoping to visit. Create a restaurant vibe at home by laying the table with napkins and side plates, light some candles and get your glad rags on before dining, so it feels extra special.
Indulge in your favourite holiday luxuries at home
If a trip to the spa is always top of your list when on holiday, create your own sanctuary by treating yourself to a new bathrobe, some indulgent beauty products and diffuse some essential oils to really set the scene. Even taking time in the middle of the day for a long soak in the bath will feel totally different from the norm.
Stay out under the stars
Fingers crossed, the weather will get the memo about your holiday at home and the sun will be shining for you! Now the fun can start as you decorate your outdoor space with festoon lights, solar lanterns and colourful decorations to create an exotic ambiance in your own back garden. Of course, keep some blankets handy to keep you cosy if the UK weather takes a turn.
