The Great British Staycation

16th July 2018

With the British summer providing us with long glorious sunny days, holiday seekers are turning to the staycation as an alternative to jetting abroad.  Whilst seeking summer sun has been the usual reason for a much needed vacation, here are a few more great reasons to stay in the UK.

Escape made easy:

Can’t find your passport or close your suitcase. We’ve all been there. Just getting to the airport and making your flight warrants a holiday.  Vacationers are turning to staycations as they are significantly easier to plan. You can load the car under your own steam, stop for a bite to eat somewhere scenic and check in at your leisure.

If taking it easy and enjoying the scenic route is your idea of holiday heaven, you may consider the picturesque village of Stow on the Wold.  And tucked away on the edge of one of the most beautiful Cotswold villages is the perfect country pub, The Bell at Stow. With rooms that ooze quintessential British character and comfort backing onto the rolling English countryside, you can be sure to wake up refreshed and revived after your stay.

Pet loving people:

We are a nation of animal lovers, and bundling up our furry best friends to boarding kennels can take the shine off a holiday abroad. More and more, people are choosing to take their pet pals with them on holiday and ‘dog friendly hotel’ is one of the most popular searches when looking for the perfect break.

Luckily, The Lamb in Hindon offers pooch friendly rooms, meaning your best friend can enjoy the Wiltshire countryside with you. Hidden in the beautiful village of Hindon in the West Wiltshire Downs, there’s much to be discovered at The Lamb, and backing on to the Wiltshire countryside, you can be assured of glorious walks with your four legged friend.

City Addicts:

Some people just can’t switch off and the idea of no signal/ wifi or lounging on an isolated beach sends a disconnected shiver down the spine. With the average length of a holiday dropping, the long-weekender is becoming more commonplace, and holidayers are leaning towards packing that weekend with adventure rather than peace and quiet.

We believe you can have both. Take the Windmill in Clapham.  Surrounded by the tranquil green space of Clapham Common, but less than 20 minutes from central London, The Windmill is the perfect go-to destination for guests looking for the best of both worlds.

Breaking the bank:

Booking that dream vacation can sting the wallet. Airport transfers, hotels, flights and well, just having fun at your chosen destination, all adds up. By avoiding the hidden costs that come with travelling abroad, holidayers can truly treat themselves. That delicious meal for two, no problem. Local tourist attractions, sign me up. A glass or two of bubbly, oh go on then. Staycations also support and boost local businesses, meaning treating yourself is good for everyone.
