Escape for Adults

Summer Staycation

It’s all about the staycation this year and we can see why… Due to rising holiday prices, a poor pound to Euro exchange rate and recent hot weather in Blighty, Britons are turning their backs on the traditional two-week holiday abroad. According to a new survey, more and more of us are opting for a one-week summer holiday at home with a few mini-breaks throughout the year rather than the old-fashioned fortnight away. 

A staycation in the UK saves money, time, stress and travelling so check out our top five reasons why Lifehouse makes the perfect staycation destination.


Adults-only countryside retreat

We’re easy to access from London, tucked away in the heart of rural Essex, nestled in 130 acres of beautiful grounds. So, in less than 90 minutes you can travel by train straight from London Liverpool Street to our local station Thorpe-le-Soken or hop in your car. You’ll also be just a 10 minute drive from one of the UK’s most beautiful beaches in Frinton-on-Sea.


The Weather

We’re lucky to be located on ‘the sunshine coast’ and get some of the best weather in the country during the summer months. It’s not unusual for our bar terrace to reach similar temperatures to Spain and our guests love sitting out having a meal, drinking Pimms in the sun or lying in deckchairs by the lake. 


Mediterranean Food

The Lifehouse Menu is the creation of our Executive Chef, Ugo Simonelli and has an Italian – Mediterranean influence and style. The Lifehouse cuisine ranges from the uncomplicated elegance of a few carefully selected ingredients to classic dishes cooked to perfection, all lovingly prepared and naturally healthy. You don’t have to go to Italy for great Italian food! 



Here at Lifehouse we offer therapies to quieten the mind, rejuvenate the body and lift the spirit. So, whether you decide to go for a revitalising Clarins facial, a full body Decleor massage or a spiritual energy healing treatment you can just sit back, relax and let us take care of you! 

There you have it, it’s definitely all about the Staycation this year. Less stress, less money and less travelling. If you would like to find out more about our Staycation offers here at Lifehouse click here
