For those wanting to make up for lost time (and lost holidays) post-lockdown, booking a staycation in a fabulous location will certainly be high on the agenda in the months to come.
There is after all nothing better than exploring a new destination, sampling the delights of its food and drink scene, indulging in a sightseeing, and living it up by night too.
Making time for some rest and relaxation during your staycation is however a must, and will be well-deserved after the unfortunate events of the past year.
But why is planned relaxation such a necessity? We’ll let award-winning therapist, Dr Barton Goldsmith, answer this poignant question:
“We need to give ourselves a break, and a little downtime works well for almost everybody. It doesn’t really matter what the activity or inactivity is. The idea is to give your body, mind, and heart a chance to relax and recharge. If you keep going at full speed every day, it can be really hard on you, both physically and mentally. We were not designed to go 24/7/365 (even though that’s become a popular modern-day mantra).”
Those visiting Cambridge will have plenty of opportunities to indulge in a bit of me-time, so how can you make your Cambridge stay extra luxurious and relax on your staycation?
Book yourself into a Cambridge spa
A spa is a great place to soak up the serenity on your staycation, and thankfully Cambridgeshire is full of them.
Whether you’re looking to revive your tired lockdown look with a couple of treatments or want to refresh yourself with a few lengths of the pool, a day spa at one of Cambridge’s wellness retreats is the perfect way to indulge.
The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel, Y Spa, Sandpiper Pool and Spa, Aqua Sana, Lifehouse Spa and Hotel, Congham Hall Hotel, Weavers’ House, The Glassworks, and The Gainsborough Health Club Spa are all just a stone’s throw away from the city.
