As January confirms the new year and Christmas is a distant memory, a lot of us will be planning our holiday for either ourselves or with the family.
You may feel restricted by pets or children, but that should not be an excuse for something a little bit ‘outside the box’, even if in this country. Have an adventure, not just a holiday.
So let’s start with kids and pets – how about hiring a Campervan and driving to some of the more rural parts of Scotland the Cornish coast, there are some exciting places to discover, – fabulous dog walks and brilliant kids activities and prevent them from being bored. You can also check into one of the child and pet friendly cottages across the country which are geared to give you everything you need for a family break.
Check out Waterside Breaks www.watersidebreaks.co.uk – a family run business – and speak with owner Tim Wells who will give you personal advice on where to go and what to do when you are there. They really do some excellent ‘bespoke’ packages, with no time spared in talking you through your options.

If you want to go further afield, and really want to ‘travel adult only’, then why don’t you fulfil that lifelong ambition and go on one of the adventure holidays from www.exodus.co.uk.
We spotted a great one in Botswana, a country very close to the hearts of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who reportedly fell in love in this romantic country. Check these out and see if it ticks any boxes for you.
Botswana is a vast, sparsely populated country, mostly desert but with the most prolific wetlands in Africa. Holidays in Botswana are thrilling, and it’s well worth the effort required to reach some of its more remote places. The reserves of Chobe, Savuti, the prolific Moremi and the unique Okavango Delta are sensational, both in the summer, for birds especially, and in the dry autumn, winter and spring months, for bigger game. It is the largest elephant corridor in the world and the herds along the Chobe River can number in their thousands. The Okavango is the biggest inland delta anywhere; paddling through its reed-lined channels in a Mokoro (dugout canoe), watching the pristine wilderness slip by, is a most memorable experience.
