Falling for Autumn Through Travelodge
Although Fall marks the return to the hustle and bustle of real life (bye-bye summer vacay), you don’t have to count down until winter vacation to relax and unwind. And like most of us, if you’re on a budget, but looking for a break from your daily grind, try no further than your nearest Travelodge.
Autumn. The season that brings the most vibrant changes to the world around us. Our vision is suddenly overwhelmed with color as the trees turn rich hues of scarlet, gold, crimson, and auburn. Our skin prickles with the gradual winter chill and our nose perk at the wafting scents of freshly baked cinnamon and nutmeg laced treats.
Now imagine walking through the countryside with towering trees of oak and maple all around. Crinkly and colorful leaves twirl about in the gentle breeze while you hear the faintest echo of woodland creatures calling out to each other. This is no dream or fantasy, but true nature at its best and only just a stone’s throw from your cellblocks of urban confinement.
Fans of the Victorian age will delight at the immense and opulent estate of Lanhydrock in Cornwall, where you are invited to walk the grounds and explore the old rooms. At the Westonbirt National Arboretum in Gloucestershire, you’ll find acres upon acres (600 total!) of spectacular garden bursting with rare and endangered shrubs. And where else in Wiltshire can you discover classical temples but the 18th century Stourhead Gardens?
From the High Weald in Kent to the Kew Gardens in London, and lest I forget the charmingly named Giggle Alley in Cumbria – there are truly countless more dizzyingly beautiful and lush ways to experience the best of UK autumn. But I digress. There are so many places to go but there is always the problem of where to stay. Fortunately, Travelodge, “the UK’s No.1 Branded Hotel Company,” has a location at all of these previously mentioned locations.
Whether it be a quick weekend with the girls for a little rest and relaxation or spontaneous romantic getaway for two – Travelodge offers rooms for as little as £19! This leaves you ample funds to get out and sight see or just stay in and order room service.
Hey, who knows? You might even find a book in your room to pass the time…
