Travel and leisure time continues to evolve in this unprecedented year. Ever-changing guidelines and restrictions, coupled with a general air of uncertainty, has created a general feeling of caution and hesitancy. We, however, are recommending you put this to the side and celebrate with your people. What better time than now? Taking into consideration the UK guidelines of limiting gatherings to six people or less, we have put together a list of some of our favourites properties that can accommodate groups of that size, whether in a single room or a group of adjoining rooms.
If we’ve learned one thing over the past several months, it’s that we need to celebrate and appreciate each moment for what it is. Indulge and escape, with your loved ones — treat yourself, because we all deserve it.
