Why stay-cations are the new going abroad
Gone are the days of jet lag, taxi bartering and over expensive dog sitters. Instead, more and more people are saying hello to stay-cations and waking up in gorgeous Cornwall…and there are some very good reasons why!
Be it a short break or three weeks away with the family, Atlantic Reach is the perfect place to stay-cay! Here are our top six reasons for staying put this summer…
1. It’s cheaper
Holidaying on a budget can seem like an impossible task, but here at Atlantic Reach we are all about maximum fun for maximum value. Once you cut the cost of flights, airport parking and transfers, you’re suddenly left with a stack more pennies to spend on all the fun stuff.
Be it surf lessons for the little ones, tasty family meals out or finally visiting that famous attraction you’ve always wanted to experience, the little things are more important than the long hauls.
2. Less stress
Forget schedules and itineraries, a stay-cation is the easiest way to enjoy a long weekend away with minimal planning. Just chuck your bags in the boot (where the only luggage allowance is how big your car is), pop on your sunnies and leave everything behind for a few days.
It’s never been easier to head off on mini missions into the sunset and we have plenty of last minute deals and breaks. Combined with the knowledge of our helpful staff, we are here to give you a memorable break of beach days, BBQs and activities.
3. No culture shock
By staying this side of the pond you minimise a world of confusion; you won’t need to worry about bank charges and currency changing which makes sure you’re getting the most for your money.
No need to stress out when you run out of milk and are confronted with blank stares from the local shop owner who doesn’t know what you’re looking for. Plus, you won’t wake up feeling groggy on arrival – there’s no time difference in Newquay!
4. You don’t have to leave your pets behind
Never again feel the guilt that comes with leaving your doggo at the kennels. You know they will be fine, but imagine all the fun they could be having with you in Cornwall; chasing sticks on the beach, running through fields of long grass and curling up beneath your table in one of the many dog-friendly pubs in the South West.
The Cornish love their four-legged friends so you can practically take them anywhere. We even have plenty of dog-friendly accommodation, so why not get them on the back seats between the kids and give them a little holiday too?
5. It supports local businesses!
We are home to many great things; the famous Cornish pasty, cream teas, unrivalled sunsets, stunning cliff top walks, an array of diverse music festivals and not to mention the surf scene.
Community is the heart of Cornwall and by choosing a stay-cation, you are supporting the local economy. In return, we promise you delicious produce, smiley staff, gorgeous scenery and a holiday to remember.
6. You can go at your own pace
And relax…there really is no where better to unwind than Cornwall. Choosing a stay-cation means you can holiday at your own pace; no flights to book, no trains to catch, just you and your family doing whatever you want, whenever you feel like it.
At Atlantic Reach we have something for everyone; whether you want to chill out by the pool, enjoy some yummy, locally-sourced delicacies, hit the gym or make the most of our extensive children’s activities, you will have an endless stream of entertainment and down time alike.
