Top Places to Staycation this Summer for Seniors

Summer Staycations for the elderly

You’re never too old to make memories!

As we age, it’s important to still take holidays as it helps with your physical and emotional well-being. You might find that you have a lot more free time since retiring, and there is no better way to spend it than exploring and learning. Holidays are a great way to uplift your mood, get back in touch with nature, and try new things.

Research by Cofton Holidays, which reveals new insights from the Office of National Statistics and Visit Britain, states that 73% of adults are more likely to choose to ‘staycation’ in the UK instead of going on an overseas holiday over the next 12 months. This figure is up from 59% and is largely due to the current cost of living crisis.

If you are nervous about exploring too far from home, then don’t worry, we have you covered with our Digital GPS Mobile Watch Package. This watch has an inbuilt easy-touch SOS button, which, when linked to our monitoring centre, can raise an alarm anywhere you go – be it indoors or outdoors. Our 24/7 monitoring centre will contact your emergency responders or emergency services as required.

With the reassurance of your Digital Mobile Watch, you can get back to choosing where you would like to staycation in the UK. Here are our top picks:

Cornwall and Devon

Well-known for being top spots for retirement, and it’s clear to see why, Cornwall and Devon are the best places for exploration and tranquillity. With coastal walks, museums, country pubs, history and culture, they really are among the top places to staycation in the UK.


Somerset and the close surrounding cities are well-known for their events each summer, including music and local produce festivals. It is a great alternative to Cornwall or Devon as you get the same relaxed atmosphere with stunning country views, but it can be less congested, closer to many other big cities like Bath and less of a journey to reach.

If you are looking for a relaxed countryside staycation where you can explore and get back in touch with nature whilst staying safe, then the GPS location functionality of our Digital Mobile watch will allow you to do just that. Should you ever need help, our 24/7 monitoring centre will be able to pinpoint you accurately to direct responders to you quickly.

Lake District 

The Lake District is well known for its fantastic trails and mountains you can walk or hike, such as Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England, which stands at 978 metres tall. There are walks suitable for beginners or more advanced hikers. 

If you are looking for a more ‘outdoorsy’ staycation, then the Lake District might suit you. If you do decide to take on the famous walking trails, be sure to take regular breaks, drink plenty of water, and wear sunscreen. You can also wear your Digital Mobile Watch, which has a step counter so you can challenge yourself and others to individual goals, including steps achieved, distance covered and calories burned.


GPS watch

Digital Mobile GPS Watch Package – FROM 51p PER DAY 

This telecare alarm system provides the ultimate peace of mind for when you are being active. 

The watch has two-way speech when an alert is triggered and runs via the 4G cellular network. The watch is water resistant, but shouldn’t be submerged at depth. It comes with an ‘at-home’ beacon which recognises the watch when in range and powers down the GPS function (which can help increase the battery life). A magnetic charging pad comes with the watch for ease of battery charging.
