With the Easter holidays only round the corner, you might want to think about how to spend some quality time together as a family; something that can be very difficult with your usual busy schedules. With everyone often busy through the week with work and school, it can make spending proper time together sparse!
In the school holidays, you have the perfect opportunity to travel somewhere new and if you’re doing it in a motorhome, then you have your ideal home away from home too. So, before your next family adventure, you might want to consider some of these planning tips from Premier Motorhomes.
Choosing your motorhome
Firstly, your motorhome needs to be suitable for your family, from the number of beds to having enough space for everyone to relax. Storage can be an important factor when it comes to choosing a motorhome, especially if you are thinking of the kids. Children always seem to increase your luggage much more than you think they will.
You should make sure that there are enough seatbelts in your motorhome for when you are on the move. There are so many different layouts to choose from when it comes to investing in a motorhome, so it’s important to do your research and make sure you’re choosing the best one.
Living with your family in a motorhome can often bring you much closer and make sure you are working as a team so that the trip is as smooth as possible!
Decide on your destination
There are so many exciting places to see in the UK alone, never mind further afield. If you’re looking to take your kids somewhere new, you might want to consider the distance. Travelling long distances can sometimes be difficult with younger children, so bear this in mind.
Some of the top destinations to choose from in the UK include the Lake District, Scotland, Wales or even the south west coast and towards Cornwall! Each offering something completely different for the whole family to enjoy, you can choose from cities or beaches depending on what takes your fancy.
Are you an active family, or do you just need something to keep the kids entertained while you relax? Wherever you choose to go, there will be activities to suit any skill or ability. From leisurely walks around the lake to rock climbing and even surfing lessons, you can pick and choose how you want to spend your trip.
Whether you’re planning an educational trip that teaches your children the history of Britain, or you want to let them loose in an activity centre full of zip-lining and climbing, you’ll be able to find something to suit the whole family.
It might be important to you that your children aren’t glued to their phones or tablets while you’re away as a family, but make sure you have other options especially when you’re on the road!
Car games are great on a road trip and can often keep the whole family entertained for hours. In the evenings, you might want to take a few board games to enjoy together, instead of everyone scrolling on their separate iPads. It also may be worth packing things for a rainy day like puzzle books or colouring, just in case you can’t get out and about all the time.
No matter where you choose to go on your next family adventure, remember to enjoy every minute of it in your very own home away from home!
