Turn Your Garden into a Holiday Haven: Your Guide to the Ultimate Staycation

LifestyleGarden Aruba Sunlounger Duo Set

In recent years, the charm of holidaying at home has captured the attention of many people. Turning an ordinary garden into your own relaxing getaway is the first step to creating the perfect staycation. By utilising items from Shackletons Lifestyle Garden Furniture range, you can create a holiday haven in your garden.

Assessing Your Garden Potential

First, evaluate your space and assess what you want for your staycation. Are you planning on hosting friends and family, or do you want your own personal getaway? If you are wanting to host friends and family, look at large dining sets or corner sets that can fit more people. Also, consider extra storage for blankets or other items your guests might need. Whereas if you are looking for a more intimate gathering, a bistro set, or a couple of sun loungers may be more suited.

You also need to consider the size of your garden or patio. For smaller spaces, prioritising what you want is key. Do you value dining or lounging space more? Look into space-saving options like stacking dining sets or a corner set with a adjustable that can be easily transformed into a dining area. Once you have answered all these questions, you will have a better understanding of what you want for your garden and a better idea of what you need when picking garden furniture.

Designing Your Staycation Space

Now that you have assessed your space, it’s time to start designing your garden. A popular idea is to style your garden after your favourite holiday destination, whether that be a Mediterranean theme complete with blue and white decorations and sun loungers or a cottage garden theme with fairy lights and flowers. Find pillows, blankets, and decorations that match the vibe in your garden.

Adding any water feature will automatically enhance your garden. Whether that be a pond, a small fountain, or even a small paddling pool, adding a water feature to your garden will create a relaxing atmosphere and take the holiday vibes even further. Adding outdoor lighting like fairy lights or solar-powered lamps will extend the time you can spend outdoors while also adding to the aesthetic of the garden.

Choosing the Right Garden Furniture

Now that you have assessed your garden and picked out a theme, it’s time to choose some garden furniture.


One of the highlights of any holiday is undoubtedly the pleasure of al fresco dining. The experience of enjoying meals outdoors, amidst nature, brings a unique sense of relaxation and joy. To recreate this aspect of enjoyment in your own garden, choosing the right furniture becomes essential.

A great option for dining is the Lifestyle Garden opal rectangular 6-seat dining set. This set features laminate tables and aluminium frames, making it a robust and stylish addition to any garden. The set also comes with six rope dining chairs that add a sophisticated look to your garden.

The Lifestyle Garden Urbanite Panama Dark 4-Seat Stacking Dining Set is a great choice for those who are looking to save space. This set can be neatly stacked in the corner after use, making room for the space to be used for other things. With durable aluminium frames, this set ensures your outdoor living area is filled with class, comfort, and style.

If you are looking for a more intimate dining area, a bistro set is a good option. The Lifestyle Garden Nassau Round Bistro Set in Pink, which is inspired by the colourful houses of the picturesque Caribbean city of Nassau, is the perfect addition to your garden.

Lounge Sets

In the quest to transform your garden into an idyllic retreat, the selection of lounge sets plays a pivotal role. A well-chosen lounge set invites you to unwind in the tranquillity of your garden, offering a perfect spot for relaxation, conversation, and enjoying the beauty of nature.

The Lifestyle Garden Panama Light Lounge Set offers an ideal solution for outdoor relaxation, comfortably accommodating up to five people. Crafted from robust materials, this set combines longevity with a sleek design, ensuring it remains a stylish feature of your garden for years to come. Additionally, it includes a coffee table that serves as the perfect spot for placing snacks, drinks, or any other essentials.

Transforming your garden into a holiday haven is about creating a sanctuary right at home, tailored to your relaxation and entertainment needs. With a careful selection of garden furniture and thoughtful design, each corner of your garden can evoke the spirit of your favourite getaway. With these changes, you can turn your garden into a destination offering escapism and a delightful backdrop for making memories.
