A holiday is a great form of escapism, whether you fly around the world or book a staycation somewhere local. Sometimes we just need to get away from it all. Between the daily stress of trying to maintain a health work, life and social balance, it can be really hard to find some “me” time away from the stress of it all. But planning a short city break can take too much time and bring its own anxieties.

Forget airports, taxis and suitcases and book a night or two at a hotel hertfordshire where you can unwind, relax and enjoy your own company. Check out our five reasons to staycation in England.


You time

A staycation is an excuse to check out and recharge without feeling bad about it, so it’s time to unwind by getting off your phone, booking a massage or reading in the bathtub. It’s also a great time to explore a hobby that you never seem to have time for, whether it be knitting, playing an instrument, drawing or cooking. Sometimes all we need is a beautiful, relaxing hotel to get us into the holiday mode.

Time to explore

Many of us have lists of things we want to do in our cities, but never manage to find the time for. A list may consist of restaurants to dine at, bars to visit, museum exhibits to see and places to explore. Instead of leaving them unchecked, a staycation break allows you to invest some time in your own county or a new location. You have the time to go shopping, eat out at a new restaurant, watch a film or soak up the atmosphere.


Between getting the time off of work, booking flights, stressing over what to pack, dealing with the chaos of an airport and spending hours travelling, the stress of travel can sometimes defeat the purpose of a holiday. On a staycation, stress levels are practically non-existent, leaving you no choice but to just relax. Have a wander around the hotel grounds to check out the facilities then head back to your room for a bubble bath and fluffy bathrobe and voila! Your holiday has begun.


Travelling can be expensive and time consuming. If you cut out the time off by staying somewhere local and remove flights from the budget, you can save yourself a lot of money. A night away is doable for most people as you don’t need to go crazy and spend your savings just because you need a break this weekend.


Sometimes when you need a break, you need it as soon as possible. The beauty of a staycation is that when you decide you need a break, you can actually take it hours later.
