Let’s start with the good news: summer staycations are here to stay! While our world may have been turned upside down, and international travel seems a distant dream, there are so many incredible places to explore and sights to see right on our own doorstep.
Whether you’re itching for a city break, an action-packed adventure or a relaxing short break by the sea, there are so many incredible locations across the UK and Ireland to explore. And, for that added magic touch, here are six great reasons why you should book your trip with Wolsey Lodges…
With over 100 properties throughout the UK and Ireland, let Wolsey Lodges become your home-from-home as you tour the country. We all have those locations – just down the road or at the other end of the country – that we’ve always meant to explore, and now is the perfect opportunity to do just that.
If sunny beaches and cream teas are your dream, then South West England is the perfect spot to start your travels. Or if you feel the call of the rolling hills and the desire to visit historic castles then Wales might be your first port of call. And if your golf trip abroad has been cancelled then it might be time to check out closer to home, especially in Scotland – the home of golf.
No matter what your accommodation preference, Wolsey Lodges has a B&B for you. From country estates set amongst stunning scenery to charming seaside townhouses, beautiful towns-centre properties to picturesque working farms, you’ll find a huge variety of options open to you. (You might even discover a vineyard or a swimming pool, too!)
If you’re looking for something with a little more history, check out some of the more unusual stays– including old mill houses, Elizabethan Manors and Jacobean-panelled dining rooms. But rest assured whatever the age of the property, the standard of decor and the location will be second to none. Not only that, but you will have your own exclusive sitting room to make you feel even more at home.
Eating well starts with your arrival at any Wolsey Lodge as afternoon tea is included in your stay. Whether it’s freshly baked scones or a delicious cake, it’s all homemade – and, depending on your arrival time, some lodges may even offer you a glass of wine as you check in.
Breakfast is most definitely not to be missed when staying at a Wolsey Lodge. Think fresh local produce, homemade marmalade, and maybe even meet the hens that have laid your eggs! All of the Lodges take pride in producing a 5 star breakfast experience, and many have won awards winning for their efforts.
And, of course, when it comes to dinner you have complete freedom. Some Lodges offer evening meals, and all will be delighted to let you know the best places to grab a bite to eat around town.
If you prefer to do your own catering, many of the Lodges offer self-catering-properties on site.
Host, concierge, chef, butler, friend… your hosts take on all duties and are like your extended family in a Wolsey Lodge. They will most likely own the property you are staying in and will be delighted to welcome you into their home.
If you’re looking for advice on the best local walks or eateries, your hosts will provide. Need to know the best beaches, shops or beauty spots? They’re here to help. Even if you want to learn more about the beautiful house you’re staying in – or just sit down with a cup of tea to put the world to rights – it’s all part of the Wolsey Lodges experience.
With everything that’s going on in the world, cleanliness is key – and you won’t be disappointed by Wolsey Lodges. No detail is spared, and all Lodges have fully assured cleaning schedules along with safe social distancing measures in place.
If you’re looking to get away from it all for a few days, a Wolsey Lodge is the perfect opportunity to escape from the humdrum and enjoy some peace and quiet in a small, safe location. Some Lodges can also offer exclusive use, meaning you’ll bump into even fewer people on your travels. Combine that with the fact that most Lodges are in rural locations, and your summer staycations will be reassuringly relaxed!
Last but not least, we know that money makes the world go round… Every booking with a Wolsey Lodge is direct, ensuring you get the very best rates. And be sure to check out the special offers or the three-night stay rates – you may be surprised to be staying in the best room you have ever stayed in for less than you imagined!
