Team Forestipedia | Sharing all the best tips and secrets of the forest
Travel in 2021 will look very different. But thatâ€™s no bad thing. Weâ€™re taking a closer look at the key trends for the year ahead. After all, wanderlust is whatâ€™s pulling us all through lockdown.
A holiday isnâ€™t just those precious few days away. Itâ€™s the planningÂ that goes into making the most ofÂ thatÂ time with loved ones. Itâ€™s theÂ excitementÂ at the thoughtÂ of exploring a new place. Itâ€™s the anticipation in the weeks and days leading up toÂ start of your adventure.Â
We want to have amazing experiences.Â In fact, a third of us want to take more trips than ever after lockdown is lifted, a study by the Independent uncovered.Â After a life in lockdown weÂ allÂ want to feel untethered to our routine.Â And what does that look like? Thatâ€™s cool camping, natural wellness breaks and staycations closer to home.Â Â
Put simply, aÂ staycationÂ isÂ enjoying a break in your own country, and not venturing abroad. Itâ€™s not a new concept,Â but it has often been thought of asÂ the mini-break. The younger sister toÂ thatÂ big two-week summer holiday overseas. But not anymore.Â
The Independent found that 55% of those that took a staycation last year enjoyed it so much that they no longer feel the need to travel as far for holidays. The way we travel is shifting and there is a new appreciation of all that Great Britain has to offer.Â Â
Explore the forest right from your doorstep.
Slower travelÂ is another buzz word. Itâ€™s all about really immersing yourself in a new place. Taking the time to enjoy the culture,Â marvel at the landscapes, discoverÂ the localÂ cuisineÂ andÂ uncover local experiences.Â Â
Open spaces, like our forests, offer something magical that a hotel simply canâ€™t.Â Itâ€™s an attitude, a state of mind, a feeling. Itâ€™s what makesÂ Forest HolidaysÂ so special - you donâ€™t just visit the forest, you feel it.â€‹Â The forest feeling is that magical ingredient you get to enjoy throughout your escape â€“ and take home with you.Â
Cool Camping isnâ€™t pitching a tent in a grass field anymore. It can be for some, but for others itâ€™s fairy-tale treehouses, quirky yurts and bell-tents, cosy log cabins, shepherds huts and more. Glamping is fast becoming a term weâ€™re all familiar with. Itâ€™s making the â€˜camping experienceâ€™ accessible for all.Â
For us, itâ€™sÂ unearthingÂ spectacular spots and exploring every trail. Itâ€™s the personal touches; the recommendation to the lovely local pub andÂ the tip to stumble across a magnificentÂ waterfall. Cool camping is uncovering less crowded spaces and feeling like youâ€™veÂ discoveredÂ a special little secret.Â Forest Holidays offers a world away from the everyday, all from the comfort of a cosy cabin deep in the heart of the forest.Â Â
