Why Mid-Week Breaks are the New Weekends

At this time of year, everyone tends to take short weekends away, but you could be missing out on some great breaks if you don't consider midweek stays, especially if, like most of us, you've built up loads of unused annual leave entitlement during the pandemic.


When you visit somewhere like Alston, a midweek break is a great time to explore the North Pennines AONB. Everything is open, but the roads are less crowded, and there are less people out on walks and on bikes to spoil the serenity. At Salvin House Aslton, we are seeing more and more people choose a midweek break when weekends are unavailable.


If you are thinking of a midweek break or staycation in Alston, consider the following:


  • You can often get better rates for accommodation during the week

  • The roads will be quieter so you can explore more without having to worry about traffic

  • Attractions will also be less busy so you can take your time and enjoy them without having to queue

  • There are plenty of walks and cycle routes to explore that aren't as popular as on weekends.

If you're feeling a little naughty, it's also a great way to make friends and colleagues envious. Although that's never really your intention, of course, it’s still a good feeling knowing that you’re off on a break, relaxing and chilling out when everyone else is hard at work.


Whatever your destination, a midweek break is the perfect way to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Why not consider booking now and enjoy some peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings?


Salvin House Alston is the perfect place to stay for a midweek break - we offer great rates, comfortable accommodation, and plenty of local information to help you make the most of your time in Alston Moor and the North Pennines AONB.
