Two-week holidays 'given the boot'
Its seems that demand for the traditional two-week holiday might be waning, as people instead opt to stay in luxury hotels in the Cotswolds or elsewhere for short periods of time.
Research carried out by the National Trust shows 51 per cent of people in the UK will not be going away for a fortnight this year, as they instead go on more breaks that are shorter in length.
Clinical psychologist Dr Cecilia d'Felice questioned: "We all know that holidays are good for us but did you know that even a day long mini-break reduces stress, improves wellbeing and enhances quality of life?"
She added that even just heading out for a day trip can improve a person's efficiency at work and help bond family relationships.
A National Trust spokeswoman recently urged people to enjoy the great outdoors once the bank holiday season approaches.
