Or why not head to the seaside to take in the fresh air and some serious relaxation in Brighton or Bournemouth. Fancy a five-night retreat? Head to Devon where you’ll be able to pick from some of the finest hotels near to where you want to spend your time and you won’t run out of things to explore either. From the vast moorland and rocky hills of Dartmoor, exploring the 95-mile World Heritage Jurassic Coast to long walks or scenic cycles in the un-spoilt countryside or beautiful beaches. There really is something for everyone to enjoy.
