The ‘Staycation’ Home Trend


Exploring the 'Staycation' Holiday Home market, Abode2 takes a look at a selection of luxury holiday home possibilities across the UK that cater for every idea of the ideal break.

The proposition of 'Staycations' have become more and more popular across the UK, with restrictions over the last year set to be loosened over the coming months, yet still a question mark over international travel, many people are looking in the UK for their new holiday homes.

More and more we are seeing schemes which are located in prime locations for leisure and relaxation and offer amenities that deliver convenience, relaxation and luxury – homes which offer on-site pools, lakeside settings, open-air tennis courts and even an on-site hotel in Islington – the Nhow which is the first in the UK.

For those longing for a city holiday, being in the hustle and bustle, all the amenities and experiences that a fast-paced city break offer there is 250 City Road. As part of the 250 City Road development, the nhow London is located in the thriving area between Hoxton, Islington and Shoreditch. Only minutes from ‘Silicon Roundabout’, the high-tech hub around Old Street, the location offers access to expensive leisure facilities, as well as easy travel to all London’s main attractions via nearby Farringdon Station. The hotel’s rooms are designed to combine traditional British icons with unconventional contemporary style.

Located in the heart of Zone 1 and within easy reach of the City and fashionable Shoreditch, 250 City Road, designed by architects Foster + Partners, is an eclectic mixed-use development. It encompasses residential homes with retail and leisure space, together with a new four-star nhow hotel and two acres of Wi-Fi enabled landscaped gardens.

Currently available is a collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments in Valencia Tower as well as a collection of two and three-bedroom penthouses, including triplexes. All homes enjoy a range of five-star facilities including a fully equipped spa, fitness studio, business suite, residents’ lounge, private screening room and 24-hour concierge service.

If you are looking for a slower paced, more relaxing location, Woodberry Down offer a more soothing option. New areas of public space at Woodberry Down includes 42 acres of open water comprising two large reservoirs, one of which offers the option for open-water swimming. Residents and the public also have access to a river walk and the Woodberry Wetlands - a dedicated nature reserve cared for by London Wildlife Trust which spans 11 hectares and home to a variety of wildlife.

Woodberry Down in North London is a multi-award-winning, waterside regeneration scheme located moments from the lush greenery of Finsbury Park. Woodberry Down is known for its charming, village-style atmosphere, underpinned by an eclectic mix of friendly local shops, cafes, restaurants and meeting spaces. Trendy Stoke Newington is also located close by, and is home to a selection of shops, bars, cafes, pubs and restaurants, as well as a regular farmers’ market.

As well as all these amazing established facilities at Woodberry Down, Hawker House, which is a stunning new collection of homes, has just launched.

For a ‘Staycation’ Home with a sense of timeless, elegant grandeur there is Trent Park. Offering a wealth of stately amenities at The Lawn Club, including an elegant open-air swimming pool, a state-of-the-art gym located in a beautifully-restored orangery and open-air tennis courts.

The Grade II listed buildings include the historic mansion house and orangery, both of which will be restored and repurposed. The homes are set in 413 acres of stunning parkland offering great opportunities to spend hours on peaceful walks enjoying the local wildlife.
