How to have a happy family Christmas in a Spaceships motorhome
Posted on 27/10/2021 by Mike, Spaceships Crew
Here's how you can have a happy family Christmas in a Spaceships motorhome!
Christmas is a time for celebrating with friends and family. You may not live close to family and friends, but there is a way you can enjoy a happy Christmas meeting your family - and it's in a motorhome.
A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year - on the road!
If you hire a Spaceships motorhome, you can blast-off to see family and friends this Christmas wherever they are!
Make the most of the Christmas break. It could be driving up to your parent's house and staying on their drive. Take in a quick visit to other relatives nearby - it would make their Christmas to see you. Take the kids to visit their grand parents - imagine the adventure they would have if they stayed in the bunk beds in the Spaceships family motorhome. There's loads of storage in the through garage in the back of the motorhome for everybody's Christmas presents. It's way bigger than Santa's sleigh!
Your Spaceships motorhome will give you the flexibility to travel the country without using public transport. There's central heating, hot & cold running water, with a toilet and shower on board. You can plug an electric hook-up into the house you are visiting to power lights and heating. The oven and 3 ring hob is perfect for rustling up a Christmas snack. Warm mince pies anyone? The fridge will keep the fizz and snacks chilled, with comfortable warm beds to relax in when the celebration is over - and you don't need to stay in your relatives' home.
Turn Christmas into a Winter break
You can hire a motorhome for break to visit family over Christmas. Both pick-up and drop-off are contactless and safe, with your keys waiting for you in a secure lock box. You can take your dog with you in your Spaceship - it would be a mini winter break for the whole family!
We'll give you temporary access to the Caravan and Motorhome Club for the duration of your hire, so you can find and book a campsite to extend your Christmas break. Find out more here.
You can book your Christmas Spaceship with confidence - if further Covid restrictions come into force, you are covered by our Covid Promise.
A Family Christmas in your Spaceship
Think of the possibilities of spending Christmas in a Spaceship. It's time to get creative, and a new way to get together and celebrate. Prepare steaming glasses of mulled wine in the motorhome kitchen, with mugs of hot chocolate topped with marshmallow for the kids. Barbecue the turkey by wrapping it in tin foil and putting the lid on the barbecue - or you could just roast it in the oven in the motorhome...
Festive food with a twist...
Begin with a warming mug of roast parsnip soup. Roast chunks of parsnip with some thyme in the oven. Sweat some onions and diced potato in a pan. Add the the roast parsnip, some stock and simmer away. When the potato is cooked, use a hand blender to turn into a rich smooth soup. You can reheat it to serve piping hot to sip from mugs outside.
Serve hot turkey and stuffing baps with crisp roast potatoes and pigs in blankets in a bowl. Everybody can grab one outside around the fire pit. Or maybe shred some brussels sprouts and serve with turkey and cranberry sauce in a wrap. For a meat free option, roast some winter root veg in olive oil, add some chopped pistachio and pine nuts and serve with chunks of crusty bread warmed in the oven. And talking of nuts, don't forget those chestnuts to roast over the fire pit - perfect with a slice of Christmas pudding and a wee dram to warm the cockles of your heart. You won't be driving anywhere, just curling up in your cosy motorhome.
On Boxing Day try big sharing plates of cold turkey, ham, pork pies or sausage rolls. Vegan cheeses or loaded potato skins are a great meat free option. Alternatively, keep it light with party snacks all the way. Keep the motorhome oven on to heat up vol au vents, bhajis, pakoras, mini pies and dim sum. Keep the plates coming out and the Prosecco topped up for a Christmas celebration with a difference! You can host the Christmas party from your motorhome on the drive.
