Despite Level 3 restrictions being introduced, it doesn’t mean that all weekend plans have to be forgotten. There are still plenty of things you can do from the comfort of your own home. Here’s our list of some of our favorite relaxed weekend activities.


1. Have a Netflix marathon

There is plenty of great series and movies on Netflix. It’s the perfect time to start that one you’ve been wanting to watch, or check out a documentary you’ve heard people talking about. Seize the opportunity!

2. Try Out a New Recipe

If you have seen a recipe that caught your eye it’s time to try it out! There are tons of YouTube tutorials and online recipes to give you both inspiration and instructions.

3. Dine In

Why not get a delivery right to your door? Minimum clean-up, no cooking and lovely relaxed dining. The Pasta Factory even does a meal deal that includes prosecco, what’s not to love about that?

4. Go For a Walk in Nature

Why not pack the picnic and raingear and explore the nature walks near you? It’s a great opportunity to get some fresh air and clear your head.

5. Visit The Secret Garden Café

The Secret Garden has an excellent outdoor seating area, so if you’re really looking to get out of the house make sure you call to make a reservation! The selection of tasty treats is well worth trying.
