In one of our previous blogs, we shared the top reasons why North Yorkshire offers the perfect staycation spot.

And now that coronavirus restrictions allow for us to visit other places across England, it’s also the ideal place to enjoy your upcoming summer holidays!

Whether you’re eager to get out and about exploring again or you’d rather stay closer to your accommodation, North Yorkshire caravan holidays in particular – as we can attest to at Brickyard Lakes – offer a great variety of opportunities to make the most of your well-deserved break away.

With that in mind, we’ve shared just a few of Brickyard Lakes’ holiday home owners’ favourite caravan holiday pastimes below in case you’re looking for ideas for your own summer retreat.

5 ways to make the most of your North Yorkshire caravan holidays this summer:

1. Immerse yourself in nature

Wherever your caravan may be situated in North Yorkshire, chances are, you won’t be very far from nature. For example, at Brickyard Lakes, we are surrounded by North York Moors National Park, which is known as one of the best areas of outstanding natural beauty in the county!

Immersing yourself in nature is a wonderful way to spend your caravan holiday – the exercise, fresh air and exposure to incredible, unspoilt wildlife is guaranteed to leave you feeling happy, relaxed and at ease, even long after your holiday comes to an end.

2. …Or perhaps venture a bit further

If you do like the idea of travelling a little beyond your holiday home, however, there are likely to be more than enough attractions and sources of entertainment not too far from your doorstep.

We’ve shared some of best recommendations in our Top 10 Days Out in North Yorkshire blog, but these are just the tip of the iceberg of possibilities you can enjoy. In fact, the promise of good summer weather means that there will be even more options to choose from!

3. Befriend other holiday makers

As a result of being confined to our homes during the pandemic, there have been minimal opportunities to socialise with others and make new friends, other than over the internet. The lifting of restrictions however means that we can socialise more freely (albeit responsibly)!

And the great news is that, with North Yorkshire caravan holidays, you’ll be in close proximity to other like-minded holidaymakers who you can accompany on your getaway endeavours and (should you both be owners of a holiday homes) form lifelong friendships with.

4. Test your culinary skills

There’s no better opportunity to get creative in the kitchen than when you’re on holiday – and North Yorkshire caravan holidays are no exception! With time, a fully kitted out kitchen and some great places to shop for fresh produce to hand, the possibilities for culinary delights are endless.

And what a great time of year and stunning surroundings in which to enjoy your cookery success! For example, some of our holiday homes at Brickyard Lakes are bordered by a spacious veranda – perfect for an al fresco dining experience!

If part of your holiday plans is to avoid the kitchen entirely, however, you can always take a look at the restaurants and take-away services available nearby. The choice is yours!

5. Relax!

While all of the above suggestions are guaranteed to bring enjoyment and happy summer memories, the beauty of North Yorkshire caravan holidays is that you don’t have to do anything at all.

At Brickyard Lakes in particular, your caravan should be seen as your home from home, and therefore a place where you should be able to feel like you can truly relax and enjoy the peace, tranquillity and quiet that surrounds you.

Whether that’s indulging in a favourite novel, sitting by the lake in the sunshine, or simply staying in bed all day, it’s completely up to you!
