Destination Staycation: 5 Ways to Enjoy a Well-Deserved Break at Home


With overseas holidays put firmly on hold, we’re turning our attention back towards home to embrace everything that a summer spent staycation style has to offer. Imagine sipping on your favourite quarantinis, diving head-first into a good book by the paddling pool and spending some quality me time soaking in the tub.

Glamping In Your Own Garden

With a hot shower and loo just a stone’s throw away, glamping in the garden actually sounds quite appealing. Make the most of the warm summer nights by digging out your tent from the garage, pitching it up and preparing for a night filled with stargazing and toasted marshmallows.

The All Day Breakfast Buffet

Whether you prefer a full English or something slightly more continental, enjoy your staycation’s slow mornings by dining al fresco for breakfast (or brunch). Coffee is also key, so be sure to keep the caffeine flowing.

Make Mine a Quarantini

 While you might not be jetting off to Manhattan, Moscow or Milano any time soon, that doesn’t mean to say your drinks cabinet can’t. Pour a glass of your favourite quarantini, pick up a good book and prepare to spend the afternoon with your feet fully submerged in the kid’s paddling pool.

Room Service

Bedroom looking a little lackluster? Achieve the first-night-on-holiday effect by upgrading your sheets from everyday basic to luxury hotel. Eygptian cotton sets complete with a high thread count will guarantee to give your bed that 5-star feeling. Pillow mint totally optional.

Me, Myself and I Time

Out of Office email alert at the ready? Now let those first few days of staycation truly sink in by allocating some time to pamper and polish. Fill up the tub with a few extra bubbles, grab a fridge-cooled face mask and just well, relax.
