Take flights and transfers out of the equation and you’re likely to have far more cash to splash on a lovely little break. Even if it’s only a weekender, you’ll feel so much better for having had a change of scene.
Why not indulge in one of the following UK hotels sure to make you feel like a king or queen, even in the absence of a tell-tale summer holiday tan:
Lace Market Hotel, Nottingham
Head to Robin Hood country and spend a night or two in this gorgeous little hotel in the Lace Market area of Nottingham. The rooms, overlooking either an exquisite church or historical building, are styled in a classically contemporary way, and ensure you a great night’s rest in the lap of luxury.
Eating in the hotel’s restaurant, Merchants, is a must. Why not splash out on the six course tasting menu – a far better option than the all inclusive buffet in a three star hotel abroad.
The Howbeck and Windermere Suites, Windermere
The Lake District is a great place to get away from it all, and the stunning rooms at this boutique hotel will leave you feeling like you’ve had the most amazing summer holiday ever. Enjoy deep baths with mood lighting, designer furniture and king size beds, and, of course, the nearby lake. Best enjoyed with romance in mind!
While taking a staycation is a great way to get more for your holiday money, one thing that should not be skimped on is travel insurance. Still relevant, even in absence of a flight, and available for the UK at just a few pounds, it’s definitely a worthwhile purchase even for luxury UK breaks.
