8 Reasons to Enjoy a Staycation with Friends

Trying to plan a getaway for a group of friends this summer? We know what a hassle it can be trying to please so many people, remembering who has paid what, and checking that everyone has passports that are in date! So why not do something different this year and think about Plassey, one of the leading holiday parks in North Wales?

It is so easy to let the demands of everyday life get on top of us, with work, children and household chores taking up every moment of our waking hours. This can mean that we don’t get to spend as much time with our friends as we would like, and so booking a short break with the girls could be just the thing you need to slow down the pace and spend some quality time together. You may catch up for a coffee every now and again, but it can feel rushed, and often gets postponed, whereas a few days break away in each other’s company at one of the leading holiday parks in North Wales, can be just the thing you need to refresh and relax.

Here are just some of the reasons a short group break to North Wales should be on your to-do list this year:



If you and your friends have children, they will relish the fact they can have a ‘sleepover’ every night for a week – and they will have a constant playmate to keep them company. The fact that they can keep other occupied will give the parents (you) a better chance to relax.



Some people dislike the idea of going away as a group as they think it means they have to spend all day, every day together – but this isn’t the case at Plassey. There are so many activities to do on site and in the local area, that people can go off and do what they want easily and then come back together to discuss their day at the end of it.



There is an old saying that too many cooks spoil the broth, so why not take it in turns to cook and even share the washing up duties as well – on the nights when you don’t eat out of course! If you plan it well and there are four adults going, you could end up only having to cook once in a week!


Group Discounts

There are many free attractions in North Wales to take advantage of, but there are also many others where you have to pay to enter. Having a group of people enter at the same time usually means you will earn a group discount off the entry fee – which will save you pennies in the long run.



When you go away on your own, it can be easy to not slip into a routine of doing the same thing every day. Going away as a group means that you are more likely to plan fun activities for every day so that everyone enjoys their break to the fullest.


Learn More About Each Other

Spending time together with close friends can be a great bonding experience and bring you closer together, meaning you come back from your break with a greater understanding of each other – especially if you now know they need at least two coffees in the morning before they can function!


We can’t stress enough how perfect North Wales is for a holiday, be it a weekend break or two weeks in the summer. There are so many activities to do and attractions to visit, that you will never run out of things to do.
