Sun, sea and sand already on your mind? I know it's on mine and I've been browsing a variety of brochures of far away shores, exotic food and spa retreats that I would love to visit.... if funds stretched that far!
You can still have a great time within the UK though and you don't need to stay at home all year without a well deserved getaway, even if you can't afford a holiday abroad.
Although we will be exploring foreign land during the summer again we often enjoy camping and caravan trips during the February half term breaks, Easter holidays and even as late as October, exploring new towns and villages and having fun as a family. A break from the norm is something we can probably all benefit from!
Camping and caravans
Going back to basics and leaving technology behind is something I really enjoy despite loving my acrylic nails and little luxuries! There are some really nice sites that have pools, parks, entertainment and restaurants although I do like to get out the gas stove or BBQ and cook surrounded by nature and eating alfresco.
We will probably have a few weekend trips away with the tent and a week visit somewhere near the seaside.
Hotels and apartments
If you don't fancy the great outdoors you can always opt for comfort and warmth with holiday sites like Butlins. We had a fantastic time at their Skegness site and that was only for a day visit while in the area. There were arcades, rides, shows, swimming and a variety of restaurants if you fancy a night off from cooking - we had delicious filled crepes!
We will have a week stay at a resort staying in a hotel or apartment later in the year.
Where will you be heading this year?
