Our guide to your summer holiday in the UK

Our guide to your summer holiday in the UK

There’s no denying that many of us can’t wait to get away from the hustle and bustle of normal life this summer. But whether you’re planning on jetting off abroad or staying local, we’ve got plenty of key information for you right here. This blog is our guide to your summer holiday in the UK.

Planning a summer holiday is an exciting time, but you’ll also want to ensure that you’ve got everything covered. There’s usually much less to organise if you’re planning a summer holiday in the UK. You’ll have to think about accommodation, travel, activities, food and what to pack!

Planning your location

The UK has an abundance of gorgeous locations for the whole family to visit. Now is the time to decide whether you’re after a city break or a relaxing beach trip. Whichever option you choose doesn’t have to be the sole focus of your summer holiday, it’s quite likely that you can have the best of both worlds! That’s definitely the case if you choose to come and stay with us at Ream Hills holiday park, we’re nestled in the small village of Weeton, just a short journey from the bright lights of Blackpool and the sandy beaches at St Annes. If that sounds like exactly what you need, you don’t need to spend time thinking about places to go in the summer…we’ve got you!

Choosing your accommodation

When choosing your accommodation, you need to consider how many people you’ll be travelling with and how much room you will require. There may be other accommodation luxuries that are important to you, maybe you fancy a luxury hot tub break? If you feel like bubbling away in your own private tub, you can experience the ultimate relaxing experience right here.


Travelling can be a huge part of your summer holiday in the UK, depending on where you’re travelling from. There’s plenty of options, including driving, flying, getting the train and more. If you plan to drive, you might also want to consider the travelling that you’ll do while you’re away. Would you be better off renting a car instead? Or even just renting a car when you arrive so that you can easily get around the local area.

Fun activities

Whether you’re travelling as a family or visiting on a friendly staycation, there’s plenty of fun activities to do around the UK. Maybe you’re after a theme park adventure or maybe you’d prefer a quiet walk through the countryside, the choice is yours! At Ream Hills, we are a short journey from the popular Blackpool Pleasure Beach and also not far from a range of beautiful walking routes. If you’re looking for activities around our local area, we can advise you based on your personal preferences.


Regardless of what your food preferences are, it’s definitely worth checking that the place that you’re visiting meets your needs. Often when staying at hotels, holidaymakers can feel pressured to stay and eat at the hotel, especially when there’s only a small time frame for the restaurant. With this in mind, many people prefer to book elsewhere where they have more control over their mealtimes. A great idea is to choose self catering accommodation, this means you’ll have full control and flexibility over this aspect of your summer holiday in the UK. You’re free to eat when you want and what you want!

The dreaded packing!

Let’s be honest, most people don’t enjoy packing, not only does it often take a while (especially when you’re packing for the whole family), but you’ve also got the worry of forgetting important items. A key factor of your packing will be the weather, so before you begin, see if you can check out the forecast for where you’re visiting. If you’ve chosen to go on a summer holiday in the UK then unfortunately you’ll have to be prepared for a few weather conditions! We would recommend packing a waterproof jacket, warm clothes, summer clothes, sunglasses, a hat and most definitely some sun cream.

The UK really is a lovely place to visit throughout the year, but the summer months provide so many fun activities and usually lots of sunshine. At Ream Hills holiday park, we offer the full package, with luxury hot tubs and plenty of space for the whole family, not to mention that all of our accommodation is self catering.

We’re sure that you deserve a summer holiday break, wherever you choose to visit. If you’ve followed our guide on planning then you’re sure to have a great time. You can book your trip directly on our website here.
