The Pandemic has created a whole new language, a sort or crisis-dialect which placed words in our vernacular seldom used in normal life.
A couple of terms which emerged in 2020 - 2021 were 'staycation', 'work-cation' and 'near-cation'. In January 2022, our friends at AirBNB even coined 'Bae-cation' which was designed to encourage friends to get together 'away' once again.
Upon further investigation, our very own website has also seen a nearcation boom! Since March 2020, visits from locations within two hours drive of Minehead have doubled and this trend has continued into Spring. It's also translating into bookings, with many guests coming from Bristol, Dorset and Wiltshire -around two hours away.
Of course, when travelling with children or dogs (a majority of our guests come with their four-legged friends), a shorter car journey is favourable.
In addition to being closer to home, Exmoor and the nearby counties of Devon and West Somerset are relatively compact, with many of our most popular attractions within an hours drive.
In this podcast, we talk nearcations and some different attractions which are close at hand.
