Ideally, your staycation will go off without a hitch, but if anything were to unexpectedly go wrong, the familiar surroundings of your own home will never be too far away.

There are Lots to Do

Although the weather in the UK has a bit of a bad reputation, there are plenty of all-weather attractions and activities that will keep the whole family entertained. Come rain or shine, there’s always lots of fun to be had.

A Staycation Can be a Quick Getaway

Staycations allow you to get away from it all for a few days without having to spend most of that time travelling. There are a variety of park homes for sale in Gloucestershire, including many within dedicated over-50s sites like Orchard Park, which could make an ideal weekend retreat.
