Home of original thinking
With many Brits opting for a Staycation this year, holiday homes and short-lets have seen demand like never before across the country. What’s more, with many discovering the delights of what the UK has to offer, holiday-goers are considering investing in their own property in hotspots like Devon, the Cotswolds and beyond.
Town vs Country is certainly a hot topic in the press right now and a debate with many viewpoints. Since estate agent offices re-opened in England in mid-May, activity levels across the country have been extraordinarily high, driven by pent-up demand after the market was shut down for nearly three months. Weeks of lockdown caused many people to re-evaluate their living spaces and consider a lifestyle change.
Understanding how lifestyle changes are affecting our relationship with property lies at the heart of new podcast series ‘Be InSPired’ by Strutt & Parker in association with Country Life.
Strutt & Parker consult our interior design partners at Alexander James Interiors for some essential tips on creating a productive home office environment, with whatever space you have.

As British holidaymakers rediscover the blissful scenery of our national coast and countryside, we consider how changing attitudes to travel might inspire more people to invest in their own staycation homes.
