Mancunians Ultimate Happy Places!

A countryside walk in the Lake District has been voted as Manchester’s ultimate “happy place” when it comes to time spent away from the city, according to a new study.

Coming at number 5 Mancunians love nothing more than walking in the Peak District.

Having lived all over the UK and in various parts of the North West, including Manchester city center, I’d have to agree. The Peak district is lovely. So lovely we decided to buy our first home here in the heart of the peaks. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life, but close enough to venture in whenever we should need to. But for those who prefer to stay close, you can always holiday in style with serviced apartments in Manchester

It’s a beautiful place to live when popping to a local shop is always going the scenic route you know you made a wise decision. To raise our children in the countryside with stunning scenery, animals, and nature on our step. I recall last year seeing int he news that there are children in Britain who have never seen a real Cow or Sheep. They don’t know where milk or meats come from and have never seen the animals in real life. I was shocked and I’m glad my children will be exposed to farm animals and nature from an early age.

More people across the nation are choosing to holiday in the UK. Where they’re  closer to home in the event of an emergency, can travel by car and explore the British countryside.

Researchers from SACO, The Serviced Apartment Company, polled UK holiday makers and revealed more than a third of Mancunians (35 per cent) believe there is “no place like home” when it comes to holidays.

Around a third of Mancunians (31 per cent) say their best holidays have been in the UK, while two-thirds of them claimed if you could always guarantee the weather they would never go abroad.

We’ve ventured to various destinations at home and abroad and staycations have always been more relaxed for us, everything is more familiar and less stressful.

Where would your ideal holiday be?
