Going to beach

If you’re lucky enough to find yourself a holiday cottage by the coast you must get down to the beach and soak up the sunshine and ocean bliss. Going on holiday to the beach allows you to enjoy a relaxing break with a number of activities to keep you entertained. The obvious thing to do is sunbathe, read your book and drink cold drinks whilst in the warm sun but do not forget that the best thing about a beach holiday is that the ocean is on your doorstep. Whether you swim, surf, paddle board or windsurf the ocean provides hours of enjoyment whilst on your coastal holiday. 

Countryside Walks

Walking is one of the best free things to do anytime of the year but a gentle stroll through the countryside whilst on your summer holiday is a fantastic way to see the beautiful scenery and get those steps in. Devon has some stunning walks that cross farmland, the South West Coastal Path and even beaches if you pick the walk well. A walking holiday in the UK is a lovely way to bring the family together and if you plan your walk well you can finish at a country pub that serves warm food and refreshing drinks. 

Guides Coastal Tours

Going on a summer holiday is a great opportunity to explore the rugged coastline that lines the UK from boat trips to canoeing expeditions or even tombstoning off the rocking cliff side. North Devon offers a range of coastal holiday activities to entertain the family come rain or shine, boat trips from Ilfracombe, coastal activities in Croyde and surf hire in Woolacombe are just some of the guided coastal activities you can enjoy whilst on your coastal holiday in North Devon. 

Visit Local Attractions

Many towns and villages across the UK benefit from tourism and hence provide fantastic local attractions for locals and visitors to enjoy whilst on your summer holiday. Local attractions range for soft play areas for kids to charge around chasing each other till they drop to wine tasting on local vineyards. Throughout your summer holiday whilst the days are long and the sun is out it's the best time to make the most of the local attractions that are in your area making memories to take home with you after your summer holiday in the UK has ended. 

Picnic in the park

You don’t always have to go out to a fancy restaurant to enjoy a meal with the family. If your summer holiday is blessed with blue skies and warm sunshine why not take a blanket to the park and enjoy a homemade picnic. Many local parks in the UK have ample green space and if you’re lucky, a playground to entertain the little ones. Don’t forget to take a ball and get yourself involved in a competition game to work up an appetite. If you don’t fancy sorting the food out yourself there are a number of companies that can deliver a bespoke luxury picnic ready to eat!

Camp out under the stars

When Summer finally arrives and the cool Spring air is left behind you will often find stunning summer evenings and clear starry skies, perfect camping conditions. Pop up the tent from under the stairs and transform your garden into a local campsite. Whether you’re roasting marshmallows on the campfire or telling scary stories, a summer holiday campout is a great way to experience something new.

Relax & have fun!

It’s your Summer holiday, don’t forget to relax and have some fun! Going on holiday to the beach for your Summer holiday is a great way to rest up and take some ‘you’ time. Kick back and make the most of the fresh air and warm sunshine. It's a great time to reconnect with yourself with a good book or some peace and quiet. As for fun there is so much to get stuck into on your Summer holiday so don’t hold back and take the bull by the horn. Walk, run, swim and surf yourself silly as you enjoy everything the local area has to offer.
