With Spring and Easter just around the corner it finally feels like the time to book our first UK holiday of the year, but what should be do?
As we want to save a lot of holiday fund for the summer, we are planning to head away in a holiday lodge or log cabin. Perfect for families of all ages and sizes, a lodge offers comfortable accommodation with the countryside right outside your window/door.
What’s more our dog loves it too, being able to wander in and out as they want, a joy after the winter months of being locked down to keep the cold out!
While we quite like getting away from it all in a lodge deep in countryside, we also quite like heading to established holiday parks with lodges as many of them run kids activities throughout the Easter holidays whatever the weather…. perfect!
The good news is that there are some great deals around for this Easter and we have found a whole selection with prices starting from less than £200. Search for Easter lodges »
