One of the bonuses of retirement is having time to travel and discover places that you did not do in your younger years. As we age, our desire for holidays in Britain increases with higher travel insurance costs. Northwest England has so many beautiful places to see, especially the Lake District and northwest Dales. Rent a small holiday bungalow to keep your comfort and privacy whilst you roam these lovely places.
Health and fitness become a concern in older age and the adventures that young people undertake lose their excitement. For pensioners, it might be exciting enough to travel through the Hardknott Pass with spectacular views in Cumbria or to see Blackpool Tower. Staying in a holiday cottage in the northwest means that you can have gin and tonic at six and a milky drink at bedtime like you’re used to. There are plenty of cottages and holiday homes with stairs but fewer bungalows and if you would rather not have stairs, this type of accommodation is ideal for you.
Book a good quality bungalow in the country, either as a couple or with a couple of friends and enjoy going out and about and an optional nap in the afternoon if you need it. The prices displayed are for the entire property for a week, call the owner for a short break rate. Prices are always lower outside school holidays when everywhere is calmer.
