We all lead very busy lives, sometimes it is hard to get time to yourself or spend time with your loved ones but if you have the chance to take a time-out, go for it!
Having a break from your usual daily routine is always a breath of fresh air and can really revitalize how you feel. I personally take the time out with the wife and get her away for a romantic stay in a rustic bed and breakfast. There’s nothing quite like taking a couple of days or more for a holiday during the summer months to relieve stress.
The nice thing about bed and breakfast stays is that they feel so homely and warm, less clinical than your average hotel/motel. There are a wide range of places to stay that can offer lovely homely atmospheres all over the world.
The history of B&B’s is a rich one, they began as private residences that used to cater for all kinds of travelers and pioneers. On a long journey a person could stop for the night and have a energy rich breakfast ready for the road ahead. Coming into the early 1900’s B&B’s were looked at as budget accommodation for people who were traveling though under developed areas. But as time went on the B&B became a very popular tourist stay.
The ideal B&B to stay at would definitely be one with a history, modern builds just don’t quite have the same feel as the older buildings but that could just be a matter of opinion. Some modern B&Bs are fantastic, just different.
There are many places that will allow you to do activities, some for instance like The Desmond House, have a Spa and massage therapy. Most places will also provide a list of local things to do, this can be great if you’re staying for a week or so, it will help you to organize your day trips.
I’ve been to B&B’s all over the world, through Europe and the US and I’m certain that you will find a good one, whether your on holiday, or even close to home. I currently live in the UK and this is an accommodation in Somersetwhere I work. Why don’t you try finding bed and breakfasts in your area? maybe you will find your favorite.
