In case you run out of things to pass the time when you are relaxing at the cottage, here are some ideas:
1) Create a fire pit
Fire pits are easy to set up and are something the whole family can help assemble. Leaves, sticks, newspaper and cardboard boxes will help make a great fire pit. Don’t forget to create a boundary for the pit using rocks or stones.
2) Go on a canoe trip
Find a lake, river or canal to explore by yourself or with your loved ones. Canoeing is peaceful and enjoyable
3) Set up a tent in the yard
Kids will love this one. A backyard tent is like a fort and can be filled with books, games, pillows and snacks.
The possibilities of what you can bbq are endless. Every single meal from breakfast to late night snacks can be cooked on the grill. Vegetables, eggs, bacon, meat, even bananas!
5) Visit somewhere historic
Most cottage towns, especially in England, offer some rich history and the opportunity to peek into the past and get a glimpse of life from a long time ago.
Naps, books, drinks, all go great on hammocks. It’s like laying on a cloud.
7) Water Fights
Pool noodles, water guns and buckets make great weapons for a water fight on a hot day.
Roadtrips are a great way to get out and find new beaches,restaurants, museums and enjoy some nice weather.
If you are able to find a trail, hill or hiking path around, they are a great way to get in some excerise to work off that previously mentioned BBQ while enjoying some peace and quiet.
10) Try local beer and food
Most cottage towns boast amazing home cooked food and small, hidden gem restaurants and breweries.
