What to talk about when you're tucking into your Christmas turkey with the whole family in one room? Or when you've got your friends together for a new years celebration? We think planning a Landmarkation here at TCB should be top of your list. What is a landmarkation? Read on....
Landmarkation : lan(d)mɑːkeɪʃ(ə)n : a holiday to celebrate a time-based, landmark event or occasion.
Earlier this year we came across a word that was new to us, and we think will be new to most of you – ‘Landmarkation’. This word, rather than being about physical landmarks or marking your land, is in fact all about celebration, family, holiday and time-related landmarks.
A bit like a ‘staycation’, a ‘landmarkation’ is a type of holiday where you can acknowledge large life ‘landmarks’ such as big birthdays and wedding anniversaries, or landmark dates with friends, marking the passage of time since a graduation, or when you first met.
There is evidence that placing a high priority on a ‘temporal landmark’, and creating memories with an event helps to ground your memories and experiences. By including more time-based landmarks into your life, and paying more attention to ones that already exist, you can help yourself experience time differently than if your days, months and years have no clear experiences to differentiate them.
Here at The Cottage Beyond we have been privileged enough to have been chosen as the base for a number of ‘Lanmarkations’ over the years. 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 65th, 70th, 80th and 90th Birthdays have all been celebrated (know anyone with a 100th birthday coming up – we’d love to have you!). Wedding anniversaries: Silver, Ruby and Golden have also all been used for reasons to get away as a family. And groups of friends who have met through university, having children, or just being best of mates, have chosen to take a holiday to acknowledge the incredible 10/20/30 years of having known each other by coming to TCB.
The Cottage Beyond is the IDEAL destination for your landmarkation. With accommodation for up to 13 adults and 3 children split through 6 bedrooms, including 5 en-suites. Well behaved dogs are welcome through prior agreement, and there is just so much to do and enjoy together. Glorious countryside, incredible spa hall and comfortable luxurious living spaces, there is something here for everyone.
If you are considering how best to celebrate a landmark event in your life, then a landmarkation here at The Cottage Beyond might be just the ticket. Caterers can be booked to take the stress off a celebratory meal, cakes can be arranged and we are always happy to discuss any additional requirements that you may have.
