I have just had a short break in the Lake District and it was quite a revelation about how holidays are going to be for the foreseeable future. On a positive note we have never seen the Lakes so quiet. We were lucky with the weather and were able to enjoy the beautiful countryside without it being too crowded. However if or experience is typical then forget any thoughts of spontaneity and expect to plan your break like a military operation! All tourist attractions had to be booked online with timed slots to ensure numbers stayed within guidelines. We had to pre book places for our evening meal and saw many people turned away because pubs and restaurants had reached capacity. If we wanted a drink afterwards we would have had to join a qqueue.This was when the town was pretty quiet so I would imagine it would be a bit of a nightmare once the school holidays begin. I had paid for a lovely 4 star hotel as a treat as we have had several holidays cancelled due to the lockdown. The hotel was nice and the staff were constantly cleaning. However, there is no housekeeping provided in your room during your stay to minimise risk to staff. I understand this completely but part of the luxury for me staying in a hotel is returning at the end of the day to a freshly cleaned room and the beds remade. I'm sure different places will develop different routines and strategies to deal with this but if my experience is typical I'm not sure I will be as keen to go away in future.
