Is there any better feeling quite like getting away with the family for a weekend of fun and adventure? The kids love it and it’s great for the soul too! Exploring the outdoors has never been easier and with so many awe-inspiring destinations to choose from, how can you be sure to make the most of your family retreat? From cabin stays in Europe, all the way to keeping things closer to home in the UK – we’ve compiled a list of 4 holiday hotspots for outdoors families to enjoy!
A Family Trip to Beauly, Scotland
Scotland plays host to some of the most incredible scenery on the planet, and whether you’re into hiking through the hills, or fishing over the course of the evening – there’s so much to do with your family in Beauly that you’ll be spoilt for choice! Beauly is at the centre of a very expansive mass of nature, meaning that you could walk for miles without bumping in to another human being!
What really makes this holiday hotspot so unique, is that you’ll be in charge of the activities. Fishing, camping, treasure hunts, swimming, sightseeing, trekking and bike riding are just a few of the things that can be enjoyed when retreating here!
A Wooded Retreat in Cornwall
The south of England is one of the most sparsely populated throughout the entirety of the United Kingdom, and booking a cabin in Cornwall is almost as easy as putting the kettle on. The further south you go, the closer you’ll get to the coast – so if you’re after a wooded getaway that puts the ‘U’ back in nature, then we’d recommend staying close to the border of the county.
The forests, fields and hills are every inch as magical as they would have been in the days of King Arthur (especially if he actually existed!), and there are so many outdoor activities to enjoy that we simply couldn’t list them here. If you are planning on visiting Cornwall anytime soon, you’ll undoubtedly love just how natural your surroundings are, especially in the spring.
Lake Geneva, Switzerland
Technically speaking, Switzerland could never really be considered a ‘hot spot’. With temperatures in the mountain falling low enough to freeze a woolly mammoth in its tracks, is it any wonder why the locals spend so much time around the hot springs of Lake Geneva? If the idea of traversing snowy peaks in the blistering cold, before diving into the hot springs of Lake Geneva sounds good to you, then Leukerbad in the Alps may just be worth a visit!
The Forest of Ardennes in France
Who doesn’t love a good forest exploration? If you’re anything like us, then the thought of settling in to a cabin flanked by trees on all sides is something that you’ll enjoy above all else! France plays host to one of the most expansive forests on the planet, neatly located within Ardennes. Featuring mountains, boggy moors, huge fields and hundreds of species of trees – this forest could be considered the epitome of nature!
