As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to ravage the world, thoughts of a holiday abroad couldn’t be further from minds, instead people are considering using their back gardens or local beauty spots to unwind this summer.

The 2020 holiday season will be remembered for lockdowns, social distancing and trips to the garden for staycation camping expeditions, as people maintain caution due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Backgarden camping not only helps to keep everyone safe from potential virus infection, it also gives everyone the chance to get out of the house, albeit it still within touching distance.

The idea is not exactly new, with children traditionally camping in the garden with friends to escape from their parents, but it does offer a solution for those itching to get away.

The idea of a staycation UK is to create a cosy space, which is comfortable and inviting so you can enjoy a mini holiday anywhere from a local park to your back garden.

There is no rush to the airport, awkwardly trying to find your rental car, or figuring out how to get to your destination. Staycations aim to avoid all the noise and make sure there is minimal work and maximum relaxation.

All you need to create the perfect staycation from your garden is; a tent, sleeping bags, pillows and air mattresses, and a fire pit or barbecue to create that perfect escapist camping vibe everyone can enjoy.

Once set-up you’ll be ready to enjoy a slice of the outdoors, a little bit of travel, and relaxed feeling of getting away from it all. And if it all gets too much you can simply return to your home and the comfort of your bed.
