Many holidaymakers are scrambling to find alternative staycation and day trip options that offer the all-inclusive resort experience.
With summer choices being snapped up quickly, health and fitness group David Lloyd Clubs is applying for official ABTA accreditation to cement its status as a place to visit while travel options are limited.

It will reveal full details within the coming weeks, but the bosses claim its wide range of facilities and social events make it the perfect destination for those who want the full holiday experience without having to leave these shores.
Steph Holland, head of lifestyle products at David Lloyd Clubs, said: “We’re all wondering if and how we are going to get away this summer, and for many, the gym is not the first place they’d look to for a holiday.
“But David Lloyd Clubs are so much more than a place to workout with our pools, spas, entertainment and kids’ clubs, and a friendly community vibe, many of our members already think of us as their holiday home. So providing short breaks was a natural extension of our offering.

“We’ve got so many exciting activities planned, with our outdoor areas turning into resort retreats with family splash parties in the outdoor pool, beach inspired games and pizza making classes.
“The evenings will see these areas become relaxed adult zones with cocktail master classes and gin and wine tasting sessions all sound-tracked by an eclectic playlist and live-streamed music on giant screens.
“Details will be revealed in the coming weeks. This is exactly why we’re applying for ABTA accreditation – with so much for everyone to do at our clubs.”
