Liv's Daily Getaway


Well hello there! It’s nice to have you here, and I hope you enjoy having a nosey at some of my favourite places, little hideaways and cosy boltholes. I’m a huge lover of a beautiful interior, a home-away-from-home experience and the true living like a local feeling and hope these may inspire you to truly soak up the best of some of my favourite spots.

If the great British seaside takes your fancy (what’s not to love about vinegar-soaked chips, a seagull alarm clock and a good bit of sea air), then Brighton is top of the list. Whether you want to do traditional seaside fare with a walk along the pier armed with a rumpled bag of sugared donuts - or explore the city's bustling independent shopping scene- a night or two in Brighton will always offer plenty to do. One of my favourite spots to unwind is the Artist Residence; arguably the coolest (and cosiest) hotel in town. Whether you opt for their seaview rooms with their gorgeous balconies overlooking Regency Square, or something cosier- you’ll always be offered a real home away from home feeling (which always leaves me wishing I’d booked two nights instead of one)! If something a little more central is more your bag, then Hotel Du Vin always scores highly on my list of places to stay. Moments from both the sea and Brighton’s famous laines- it’s the perfect bolthole after a day of exploring or having a serious rummage through Brighton’s incredible vintage offering (favourites include Wolf & Gypsy, Waiste, Beyond Retro and All About Audrey). Other favourite must visits include (but are very much not limited to) Our Daily Edit, Tidy Street Store Workshop and Papersmiths.

To me, travel doesn’t necessarily mean hopping on a plane or going long haul - sometimes it’s soaking up what’s on your doorstep and taking a few days, or even a night to explore what’s right under your nose - because truly, sometimes the best is right there. Living in London I often forget to explore my own city, which is why I’ve chosen two hotels that over the last year I’ve fallen in love with, both of which offer completely different experiences of the city and all it has to offer. Starting with The Standard - the perfect city centre experience and one of the coolest mid-century inspired hotels right in the hustle and bustle of Kings Cross, and a stone's throw away from Coal Drops Yard and some of my favourite places to eat in the city (Bao and Granger & Co should top any visiting lists)! The hotel itself offers not only the cosiest beds and incredible views - but if you’re feeling fancy, their Junior Terrace Suite rooms also boast balcony baths which truly make for a luxurious start (or end) to the day. If you fancy something a little more regal, head to Hampton Court on the edge of the Thames, where The Mitre sits (very) pretty neighbouring beautiful Hampton Court Palace, with interiors certainly fit for any King (or Queen). With some of the best hotel decor I’ve seen, and some of the most delicious dining options, it truly scores top points for any staycation hideaway; and with Bushy Park a short walk away, you can always arm yourself with a summers picnic for a wonderfully lovely day out (just make sure to pack a brolly just in case)!
