What to take on your Staycation

Have you packed the Staycation Essentials?

As the world struggles with the effects and after-effects of Covid-19, governments are lifting lockdowns and allowing travel to far off countries for summer holidays.

However, if the thought of boarding a plane with dozens of other passengers and jetting off to a foreign land (no matter how warm and sunny it may be!) fills you with an understandable dread, have a look closer to home for a chance to make some fantastic holiday memories.

From the Highlands of Scotland and the beaches of Cornwall and Devon to the Yorkshire Dales and Pembrokeshire coast, the UK offers endless possibilities for fun and adventure for the whole family.

But before heading off on your travels, take time to check you have all the right gear for a holiday in a notoriously unpredictable climate. Waterproofs, back packs, outdoor games, indoor games, flasks, water bottles all become can’t-live-without essentials when holidaying in the UK.

At ArdMoor, we have a great range of outdoor gear to keep you dry, accessories to keep you out in all weathers and flasks, lunchboxes and water bottles to keep you hydrated and well fed.
