The guide to having the best family staycation
With uncertainty still in the air regarding holidaying abroad, it makes sense to enjoy all that the UK has to offer by booking a family staycation for 2022. A staycation requires minimal planning which saves time; you can spend that valuable family time relaxing, unwinding and reconnecting. Staycations can often be better for the environment too - no flights and less transport means less CO2 emissions, which can only be a good thing!
Why choose YellowTop for your family ‘Staycation’?
At Yellowtop Country Park there is always something to suit everyone; whether you are with family, friends, couples or pets! Our luxury lodges are surrounded by incredible scenery, brilliant historical culture and plenty of fun things to do. So, leave your passport at home and start creating memories together in the UK!
Picture this; waking up in one of our luxurious lodges, surrounded by nature, wildlife and serenity; your very own little paradise! You can plan your day which suits you best. You may feel like having a ‘lazy day’, where after breakfast you can take a long soak in your own open-air hot tub, listening to your favourite music, followed by a lovely country bridleway stroll into the local village of Foggathorpe for lunch or dinner at The Black Swan. Yellowtop visitors will be pleased to know that regardless of the weather, our hot tubs can still be used! Alternatively, perhaps you will try your hand at fishing in our own lake - stocked with a vast array of fish just waiting for a ‘nibble’, just remember to bring your own equipment.
You may prefer a bit more adventure on your family days and head to the historic City of York, less than 20 miles from Yellowtop Country Park. Home to hundreds of tourist attractions like the National Railway Museum, York’s Chocolate Story, The Jorvik Viking Centre, The Shambles, the Minster, York Dungeons, Ghost Hunts and Hop-on Hop-off Sightseeing Tours, York is a ‘must place’ to visit with the family - and there’s plenty of retail therapy at your fingertips too!
If you are planning your family staycation to include the family dog, here at Yellowtop we are happy to accommodate up to 2 of your ‘four-legged furry friends’ in our lodge. This will not only save you a small fortune in kennel fees, but you can share your adventures with your dog with the stress-free knowledge that they are safe and happy with their Master. Just remember to pack their beds/bedding, leads,any medications and their food/bowls - we are situated at the foot of the Yorkshire Dales national park and are only walking distance from some incredible trails! Please check the website for further details.
All our lodges are well equipped, therefore a great choice for your staycation family break. You will find all the kitchen utensils you will need during your visit; an oven with hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, iron and ironing board, along with a wide-screen TV and DVD player. We recommend you bring your own flip flops and extra towels for your hot tub sessions, along with your own self-catering consumables/toiletries such as tea towels, loo roll, bin bags, tea towels, dishcloths, fresh food etc.
