Where to go for chic hotels staycation near London

UK

“Oh, it’s bank holiday weekend, can you find one of your hotels staycation again”, would ask Mr Bigg without fail before a long weekend. He always thinks that those are not full, waiting for us to arrive. It’s rarely the case of course, although we’ve been known to be lucky sometimes. To avoid that, I of course recommend booking a staycation early and here is my list of tried and tested staycations near London. They are all about 2h, so it’s really an easy weekend staycation.
