With another summer over and the children safely back at school, you may already be looking ahead to planning your autumn / winter break 2017. With the colder weather approaching, events such as Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night on the horizon, not to mention Christmas shopping to perhaps start thinking about (!), many of you will be looking for a UK staycation where you can escape for a luxury break and enjoy boutique style accommodation in a home from home environment. To help you plan your 2017 staycation we have selected some of our favourite picks. From UK city breaks to winter coastal retreats, we think you’ll be impressed by the fabulous accommodation on offer.
If you are looking for UK city break ideas then look no further than the attractive, Cathedral city of Winchester in Hampshire. Located on the edge of the South Downs and steeped in history, it was once England’s capital city and the seat of King Alfred the Great. Boasting a great choice of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as the country’s largest farmers’ market, there is so much to see and do making Winchester an ideal choice for a weekend city break or romantic getaway. With two fabulous properties to choose from, both of which are owned and managed by the delightful Hannah, you can take your pick from luxury boutique B&B or quirky self-catering accommodation.
If the thought of coastal walks along windswept beaches complete with rugged coastline and historic castles are more your thing, then a winter staycation in Northumberland could be just the ticket. Book a stay in multi award winning accommodation at St. Cuthbert’s House and enjoy all that this stunning region has to offer. Situated in Seahouses on the beautiful Northumberland coast, it’s just a stroll along the beach to Bamburgh Castle and a short drive to Alnwick Castle and Gardens and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. If you are looking for the perfect winter coastal break, St. Cuthbert’s House is a peaceful and unique place to stay.
If the countryside and wild open moorland is what stirs your soul, then book a luxury staycation to North Yorkshire. You can choose to immerse yourself in the rugged beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park at Eighteen97; a luxury B&B in the picturesque village of Goathland, which found fame as the fictional settlement of ‘Aidensfield’ in the popular television series Heartbeat and where you can currently enjoy 10% off their standard tariffs. Alternatively, if you fancy experiencing the perfect recipe for a UK 2017 seaside break, then pay a visit to Dillons of Whitby where you can enjoy contemporary elegance and modern convenience with a healthy dose of traditional warmth and hospitality.
Want to jump on a plane? Are you an avid fan of Game of Thrones? If you answered yes, then a stay at Blackrock House in Northern Ireland should definitely be in your top 10 UK weekend breaks list! Located in Northern Ireland’s premier seaside destination of Portrush, known for its scenic coastal rail journeys and home to the Portrush Royal Golf Club, this boutique B&B provides the perfect escape whether you are seeking a coastal, romantic or activity break.
