Looking for a Christmas present with a difference? And wondering what to do for your holiday next year? Why not kill two birds with one stone, and treat your loved one(s) to the promise of an extra special stay-at-home holiday?
Staycationing is the in thing in these cash-strapped times – it saves you money, but it doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality and comfort. Shetland Lighthouse Holidays www.shetlandlighthouse.com, for example, make a great choice for a stay-at-home break – whether you want a romantic holiday for two, something fun and exciting for the kids, or just a chance to explore a different part of the islands, a self-catering holiday in one of these historic buildings on the coast is sure to be a break you’ll never forget.
Or if you prefer the idea of a holiday with a little less ‘self-catering’ and a little more ‘breakfast is served’, how about a short break in a luxury b&b? West Hall in Lerwick www.bedandbreakfastlerwick.co.uk, for example, is a beautifully restored Victorian villa, offering comfort and convenience in one easy package. As it’s just on the outskirts of town, with facilities such as the newly opened Mareel within a stone’s thow, you can combine your break with a night out at the cinema, enjoying some live music, or simply soaking up the heady cultural atmosphere with a drink in the bar.
