Why You Should Take A Solo Staycation At Combermere Abbey

Estate – 17.05.22

Do you need something to lift your spirits? Or perhaps you just need a break for reflection in your own company? Whatever it is that’s bothering you,  spending some time alone with no-one else to account to is highly beneficial – so treat yourself to a solo staycation at Combermere Abbey? We know you’ll return feeling more relaxed, calmer, and happier than when you left!

Benefits Of A Solo Staycation

Boost your mood

Short bursts of solitude are believed to have a positive effect on mental health, help you reconnect with yourself, and recharge your mental batteries at the same time. All this goodness just by letting yourself relax? That sounds marvellous to us.

Control your time

Weekends away or perhaps even a little midweek break are short enough that you won’t miss your partner, babies, family, or friends too much, but long enough that you’ll feel as if you’ve had a true purposeful break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Staycations can be as short or as long as you choose to make them – which can be a welcome break from overseas holidays. You’re completely in control.

Conquer creativity

Sometimes when you’re stuck in a rut or have a creative block, it can be really hard to get work done or to concentrate – everything becomes overwhelming and juggling home commitments become hard work! – Take a few days out, ditch the diary and schedules and reconnect with nature. It honestly works wonders for getting the wheels turning again. Plus, at Combermere Abbey, our broadband speeds are excellent across all our holiday cottages and B&B rooms, so you can take a time out alone and get your head down to work on an important project for a few days without interruption and at your own pace.

Solo Staycations At Combermere Abbey 

Solo staycations at Combermere Abbey offer peace and quiet, privacy, lush green landscape, luxurious accommodation and of course some fabulous views. Woodland walks, picnics by the lake and rambles through the surrounding countryside, and wild swimming in the mere are at your fingertips.

Perfect to break any monotony during the day, Cheshire’s award-winning Three Wren’s Gin’s new distillery is just a short walk away from Combermere Abbey, along the estate roads, ideal for our holiday cottage and B&B guests. They operate an open-door policy, meaning you can pop in for a look around and to treat yourself to a bottle (or two). With summer on the horizon, doesn’t a glass of gin out in the beautiful outdoors down by the mere sound perfect?

Or, pop into another new estate enterprise whilst you’re there – the recently opened Old Piggery Café on Park View Business Centre, which is quite literally next door to Three Wrens and a lovely spot for lunch.? For solo travellers, it’s a great spot to take some time to yourself and enjoy a coffee and cake. Or you may even like to take your laptop over and work there for a few hours, providing yet another welcome change of scenery.

And how could we forget, the most convincing argument of all, your dog is welcome to join! In fact, we encourage it in our holiday cottages! Solo staycations don’t have to exclude your furry best friend after all. Our grounds are a paradise for pooches.

At Combermere Abbey, we’re passionate about making your solo staycation as relaxing as possible. Whether alone or with your furry friend for company, you will find a stay with us uplifting and rejuvenating.  You really don’t need to travel far as it’s all here in the rural heartland on the Cheshire/Shropshire border, We invite you to come and see us and treat yourself to something very special  – give yourself permission to explore solo! It may just change your life. Our booking page can be found here. We look forward to seeing you.
