Cambridge is no doubt the perfect staycation destination. The city’s history and heritage, food and drink scene, character, and charm, intimate and romantic feel, and a long list of great attractions, are just some of the reasons people are choosing Cambridge as their post-lockdown escape.

Whether you’re staying for a weekend or a whole week, travelling for business or leisure, selecting the right accommodation for your Cambridge trip is particularly important, especially during winter.

Visiting in winter certainly has its perks, there are after all many beautiful outdoor spaces to explore and indoor attractions to enjoy. But when the weather does take a turn for the worst, you want to be comfortable enough in your staycation accommodation to feel right at home.

Booking a serviced apartment is a great choice for visitors looking for comfort and a few cosy nights in during their trip.

Providing optimum freedom, flexibility, and space, you can make a serviced apartment your own, but how do you make it feel like home during your stay? Read on to discover our top tips.

Hygge your holiday home

Hygge is no new trend. It’s been a buzzword for several years and has won a legion of fans around the world thanks to its happiness-inducing, super-cosy effect.

Hygge is a Danish concept that inspires you to shape your space and change your lifestyle to find contentment, quiet comfort, and improved wellbeing. ‘Hyggeing’ your serviced apartment is, therefore, a great way to promote a feeling of calm and cosiness that tends to come with being in your own home.

Yet contrary to popular belief you don’t have to pack everything but the kitchen sink to bring a bit of hygge to your serviced apartment.

Even adding a touch of hygge to a forgotten corner of your serviced apartment will boost that homely feeling as Samantha Bacon at Making Your Home Beautiful details:

“Cosy, cosy and cosy are the words to remember for Hygge.  Even in an Australian home which is designed and geared towards the warmer months, you can find a cosy corner.

A place to sit that is comfortable and private – perhaps an area that isn’t often used, but that is a lovely place to sit and read without the intrusion of media devices.”

Bring along some home comforts

Home comforts make all the difference when creating a home away from home in your serviced apartment.

A well-worn throw or your favourite pillow provides an unexpected source of comfort when you’re miles from home and temporarily living somewhere new.

Whatever treasured belonging brings you comfort at home, be sure to bring it along to your Cambridge serviced apartment.

Don’t forget the essentials

Thinking practically may not sound the best way to get that holiday vibe as you pack for your upcoming staycation but one of the joys of home is having everything you need to hand. Take this feeling of home with you by packing the essentials.

Here at Citystay, all our guests are greeted by a complimentary welcome pack, which has all you need to get off to a comfortable start.

In your welcome pack, you’ll find milk, orange juice, mineral water, bread, preserves, butter, tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits, crisps, a selection of cereals, complimentary White Company toiletries, and Egyptian cotton linen. Our welcome pack means you won’t have to dedicate too much luggage space to those sensible items!
