The festive season is in full swing, as is all the stress the season can bring. If your time doesn’t allow for a pre-Christmas break, why not look to the new year and kick it off in style? 

Lancashire is a fantastic choice for an early new year break, with its snow dusted hills, beautiful coastline, and exciting experiences. As well as cosy accommodation options, offering the perfect opportunity to while away your days and relax in stunning surroundings. 

If you are thinking about booking an early 2024 break, we’re here to help put a few more points in the pros column. Read on for our top reasons to book a break in Lancashire for early in the year.  

1. Recharge & Relax  

Christmas is tough on a lot of people. Whether you are a parent trying to make it extra magical for your children, a twenty-something being pulled in every direction or if this year was a little different to normal.  

Going away after the new year gives you the perfect chance to relax, escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and really recharge after such a hectic part of the year. Why not book into one of Lancashire’s fantastic spa hotels for a weekend with your loved one or, even better, with your best friend to put the world to rights.   

2. Unplug  

What better way to take your mind of work, life and all its hecticness than switching off for a while.  

Lancashire offers many great places where you can really unplug. Leave the computer at home, turn off your mobile phone and enjoy the moment in a hot tub, treat yourself to a massage or sink your teeth into a craft project at one of our many workshops.  

3. Explore new settings  

There’s nothing like exploring new places, and even if you have been to our fair county before – we’re sure you can find something new to try on your next visit.  

If getting out and about is your thing, you will find many great walking routes in the countryside and on the coast for you to enjoy. Or if you prefer to stay tucked up in the warmth then you can explore some of the fantastic museums in Lancashire and discover more about the county’s history.  

4. Save money 

January holidays are a great chance to getaway for less. Lots of Lancashire businesses offer special rates and offers in the first month of the year, so a great time to grab a bargain. You’ll even find some attractions have off-peak prices, like Blackpool Zoo.  

With lower prices you’ll be able to splash out more where it matters, so book those once in a lifetime experiences or stay in that luxury accommodation.  

5. Dark skies opportunities 

Have you taken the time lately to look up at the stars? Well now is your chance. Lancashire is home to the Forest of Bowland National Landscape which is a designated Dark Skies Discovery Site, with lower light pollution levels and stunning landscapes. When visiting in the winter, your stargazing opportunities are increased due to the longer nights. Each February the area hosts a Dark Skies Festival too which includes guided tours and events where you can learn more about the night sky.  

6. Less crowded  

There are many reasons why people choose not to go away during the winter months. But with a few extra layers January and February can provide the perfect time to truly see the wonders of Lancashire, without running the risk of long queues and crowded streets.  

You are more likely to get a table at your favourite eateries – we recommend one of Lancashire’s award winning places to dine for a true treat.
