Reasons You Should Book A Staycation In 2022

Share it!

Looking to book your break this summer but not sure about venturing abroad? Here are a few reasons to book a UK staycation in 2022 (if you haven’t already!)

It’s predicted that the boom in UK staycations will continue to flourish throughout 2022, which comes as no surprise with the incredible range of holidays available throughout the UK… (in North Wales and Cumbria in particular, of course!)

Travel restrictions? That’s so last year!   

Although restrictions for those travelling to the UK have recently begun to ease, travelling abroad comes with an entirely new set of rules and restrictions, which can often be difficult to keep up with! When travelling to a country outside of the UK, you are required to check the entry requirements before you travel which can change quickly and at any time. The uncertainty can cause a lot of stress, especially when you’ve spent hundreds of pounds to jet off abroad… is it really worth it when you have incredible locations throughout the UK just waiting to be explored!

On the other hand, we currently have zero travel restrictions throughout the UK (hooray!) so we will hopefully be able to continue to welcome guests to our parks throughout 2022 so you can continue to make lifelong memories along the coast or in the countryside.

When you book with Lyons, if this were to ever change, you can rest easy knowing that you are covered by our peace of mind guarantee, meaning you won’t lose a penny.

Stress-free travel when you staycation

Despite the Friday evening traffic travelling to the coast, UK staycations can be stress-free in comparison to travelling abroad, especially when you’re travelling with a large family or little ones! Avoid the “oh no, I’ve forgotten the passports” realisation halfway to the airport, transportation costs, and having to remember to sort your holiday currency with a UK staycation.

What’s better is, you’ll have the freedom to explore the delights of the coast, countryside, local amenities and fun-filled attractions without the restriction of public transport. Keeping the family entertained has never been easier!

The unbeatable feeling of nostalgia 

For many of you, you’ll likely have the fondest memories of holidaying in the UK as a child. Take a trip down memory lane and relive your most treasured memories spent with your loved ones. Tuck into some fish and chips by the sea, build sandcastles and have your 2p’s at the ready for your turn at the arcades.

Dogs just wanna have fun

Bring along the whole family, your precious pooch included! We offer a wide range of pet-friendly accommodation across all our parks so you can have a paw-some time making memories with your family. This way, you avoid the cost of kennels and the heartbreakingly sad puppy dog eyes as you wave your pooch goodbye. If that isn’t enough to make you want to staycation then we don’t know what is.

Save money with a staycation 

More fun and adventure at less of a cost? Sounds like a win-win! With a UK staycation, it’s easy to make some super savings, especially with all the fun facilities available across our parks, you won’t have to spend a fortune keeping the whole family entertained.

Book your 2022 staycation with Lyons before 31st January to save 20% and follow us on Facebook and Instagram to be the first to hear about our offers and competitions that’ll help you save.
