Stay On The Hill

Summer Staycation in the UK?!

Since we are starting to return to some sort of normal after the last few years of lockdown, have you tried to hop on a flight and jet off to Europe or further afield destinations, but in the process have been hit by a mountain of stress and uncertainty?

Vaccinations – Have you had the correct ones, are you boosted? Have you got the correct documentation? Have you downloaded the app? Do the kids need to have a COVID test or vaccination? Major staffing problems at airports have left airlines with no choice but to cancel flights. Airport security queues are long and stressful and far from the social distancing we still sort after. Airlines have taken such a hit financially over the past few years, they are now trying to recoup those lost pennies by increasing flight prices and everything that goes with it. Your bag may now cost more to travel than you do!

Passports – Since we left the EU, we now have to have a passport issued within the last 10 years and have at least 6 months left before our passports expire. The passport offices are overrun with new passport applications and renewals so some people are not getting their passports back for months, severely affecting travel.

Why not put the stress of travelling abroad behind you and travel closer to home? Northumberland is a stunning part of the UK with friendly people and a laid-back lifestyle. There is so much to see and do or you can just put your feet up and relax while feeling smug reading about all those oversea travellers who are stuck at the UK’s busiest airports and have spent their last 3 years of savings on a holiday of a lifetime!
