Easter Holidays seems like the perfect time to get away with the kids on holiday, working parents have their holiday entitlements renewed and sunny weather forecasts coming through, but where to go? The possibilities are endless.

Many fly off abroad for a sunny luxurious get away location such as Spain, Italy, Greece or leap across the channel to France however recently we have seen a number of Brits seeking a staycations. A staycation is generally a break where families get involved with activities and points of interest relatively close to home. The UK has been a breeding ground for activities that involve the whole family, as an added benefit a Staycation can be hugely inexpensive and easy to organise.

Camping has always been a popular choice for Brits as many love a break away from the busy life in combination with some of the most remarkable natural surroundings that the UK has to offer. Camping is one of the cheapest options but requires you to have a very hands on approach to your Easter getaway. You won't have to look far to find yourself a suitable location to erect your tent as the UK offers thousands of easily accessible locations. Many sites come along with a range of activities ranging from hiking, clay pigeon shooting but what really attracts many campers is the idea of being away from phones, tablets, e-mails and having to 'fend' for yourself. With camping you will have to stock up on supplies such as tents, sleeping beds, cooking equipment and of course if you want to go for the survival option and learn how to make fire, although, you can purchase a portable gas stove. If getting down and dirty isn't your thing, many sites also offer lodges for people who prefer to sleep in a comfy bed.
