Hassle-Free Holidaying in Your South Devon Home

A three-minute read sharing top tips for your South Devon staycation.

This summer, the question mark over foreign holidays is as agonising as Ross and Rachel’s will-they-or-wont-they story.

Some have taken the stress out of the decision and opted to book holidays in and around the UK. But for many, rising prices and limited availability has resulted in staycations at home being the preferred choice.

Here’s a roundup of our favourite tips to make the most of your South Devon staycation.

Turn the tech off

Remember the good old days when a break was actually a break? For some, working from home has led to a seemingly constant availability. Work has crept into evenings and weekends and the line has most definitely blurred. Turn your phone off, put your out of office on and recharge your batteries.

Cull the chores

Holidays mean leisure, not labour. Put an embargo on laundry, cleaning, shopping, even cooking (unless that forms part of your R&R). Indulge in some guilty pleasures: sleep in, read some feel-good fiction, binge on Netflix, eat pancakes and syrup every day.

Satisfy ALL the senses

If a holiday means havaianas, Harvey Wallbangers and halloumi – have it. Use a coconut scented body lotion or sunscreen (if we’re lucky enough to see the sun…). Get out your fluffiest bath towels to turn your bathroom into a luxury hotel spa. Hang some fairy lights, splurge on some holiday-scented candles and spin some Café del Mar tunes for a holiday oasis.

Get outdoors

There’s bound to be somewhere in Devon that you have yet to discover. Search the net for recommended woodland dog walks, hiking trails, or picnic spots. If you have the space, borrow a tent from a friend and set up camp in the garden. Toast some marshmallows, put on a little festival music, and lie out under the stars. (A chemical toilet is optional.) If rain stops play, set up camp inside. You can even listen to cicadas or a crackling fire on YouTube.

Parklife

Get your mates together for some football, rugby, or rounders in the park. Get everyone involved and throw some bangers on the barbie for a post-game jolly.

Try something new

You’re never too old to learn something new. Try your hand at a new sport (a dining table and a table tennis paddle and ball can provide hours of fun) or have a go at painting, yoga, or perfect your mum’s pavlova.

Whether you’re vacationing or staycationing, from all of us here at Chamberlains, have fun and stay safe.
