how to plan a new year’s group break

Now that December is in full swing and Christmas Day approaching, New Year plans are often put on the shelf until the excitement of the festive season is over. We are all guilty of leaving these plans until the last minute, but we don’t really think this should be the case! Seeing in the New Year is something which should be celebrated especially with a group of close friends or family.

One way to really embrace this time of year is by planning a group holiday and inviting along your friends or even your family. A group holiday can be the best type of holiday to go on as you can really reconnect with everyone, as well as seeing the New Year in with the ones which you are closest to.

Now is the perfect time to start planning your break, but we know that it can hard to organise a group holiday; luckily, we’ve got you covered! Below is a handy list of all the important things you should bear in mind when it comes to planning a group holiday for New Year:

Choosing a Destination

One of the first things you should do is decide on a location. This can often be tough as some of your group will have different ideas on where they want to go. However, don’t fret as we have some incredible New Year glamping holidays available which we know everyone will simply love!

It is best that you think more about practicality as you will need to find an abode large enough to accommodate your whole party. Be sure to take into account the rest of your party, and pick somewhere you think everyone will love. If you come up with a valid reason as to why you think you should visit a certain destination, and you can see the others thinking the same, you can won’t really have any issues!

Make an Event

One of the hardest things about planning a group break is getting everyone to communicate with each other. One of the easiest ways to do this is to create an event on Facebook. One of the best things about creating an event on social media is that all of the information is in one place and everyone can see it clearly. Everyone can share their ideas, let you know if they can make it or not and you can generally keep track of what is going on.

Create an Itinerary and Theme

When planning your group holiday, it can be hard to pick activities which everyone will love. However, as your trip will be based around your New Year celebrations, you can choose from a number of ways to see the New Year in.

You can either plan to spend the evening in your abode with some of your favourite drinks, food and party games. Alternatively, you can take a look at any events happening in the area you are staying. The great thing is that the choice is completely up to you and your group.

If you want to go the extra mile, why not incorporate a theme into your holiday? Dressing up for New Year’s Eve tends to be the norm, so create a theme that everyone can follow. You can even incorporate this into any activities you are planning.

However, if you aren’t up for a party, you can still find things to do which will suit everyone. Throughout the United Kingdom, there are plenty of places you can walk, cycle, wine and dine, shop and much more. Just be sure to do your research before you head there as having a plan is better than turning up and not knowing what to do!

As it will be a New Year’s celebration, you should think about the things you will be doing during your stay. You won’t want to make it all the way to your glamping abode and realise you have forgotten some of the essentials.

We still have a range of glamping abodes available for New Year which are perfect for a group holiday. You find a list of our abodes here. Would you ever spend New Year away from home, and where would you decide to go? Let us know using our social media channels.
