Taking a winter break with Days Inn Hotels

15 December 2021

Covid-19 has seen our lives put on hold for months on end. Whilst we are by no means out of the woods yet, easing lockdown restrictions have given many of us a new lease of life and a long overdue feeling of freedom.

The pandemic saw everyone miss out on the holidays we all look forward to from year to year. With this, many of us are now looking to make up for lost time with a few well-timed, perfectly located staycations.

The warmer months may be a distant memory, but there’s no need to put holidays on hold. Taking a winter break in the UK is a must, whatever the weather outside, and here at Days Inn, we make exploring some of the country’s best staycation destinations possible! In this blog post, we reveal our top locations for a fabulously cosy winter break…



The walled city of Chester is on many people’s staycation travel bucket lists, and for good reason. Its cobbled streets and long history (which dates back to Roman times) makes it a fascinating place to explore. By choosing this destination for your winter break, you’ll get to experience the city at its most magical.

Chester is home to a number of festive events come wintertime, as well as a plethora places to shop, eat out or simply have fun.



As the county of culture, history and spectacular landscapes, Durham really does provide a staycation for every taste.

Those looking to brave the winter weather will be rewarded with beautiful countryside and some 14km of stunning coastline. City slickers will adore all the perks of its historic centre too.

Explore the awe-inspiring Durham Cathedral, find a buzzing theatre scene and nightlife, discover several castles and historic houses in and around the city, and take in lovely riverside scenes whilst exploring its shops, bars and restaurants.



Go off the beaten track this winter by staying with us in historic Hamilton. Based in Lanarkshire, Hamilton provides plenty to do and see, and is also the gateway to the picturesque Clyde Valley.

This small but perfectly formed staycation destination is made for outdoor adventures as well as romantic mini breaks.



Situated in the ever popular Lake District region, the market town of Kendal is considered one of the most beautiful parts of the UK thanks to its rolling hills and endless lakes. In the town itself, you’ll find a community rich in history and culture to explore.

There are many more fantastic destinations to explore this winter across the Days Inn network. Find the perfect place for your winter break right here and book direct with us.
