In the bleak mid winter

Firework night has passed, the evenings are getting darker and there’s definitely a nip in the air.  Winter can bring frosty mornings, heavy orange sunrises, a real magical feel about your world, as well as the excitement in the build up to Christmas.

But before we slip into images of Narnia, let’s not forget the reality of day to day living through the winter months. During the working week the dark nights, dark mornings, icy windscreens, delays with trains and buses and the general lack of daylight can make you feel thoroughly miserable by Friday. 

Winter is tough.  As we get closer to the holiday season, your diary is bursting with additional lunches and after work events but your workload is still the same.  Time out for yourself and fitness regimes often falter at this time of year and you reach Christmas feeling pretty run down.

What can you do to make things better this winter?


Stephen King once said “There’s no harm in hoping for the best as long as you are prepared for the worst”

So, how about preparing for the worst of winter commuting and the additional strain on your diary and renting a room closer to work for the winter?

We’ve helped thousands of people over more than ten years to achieve an easier life during the working week. By renting a room close to work Mon-Fri and returning to your real homes at the weekend, you’ll been able to avoid commuting chaos and not fret about staying out late after work during the period of festivities. By Friday, you’ll feel fresher and ready to enjoy your precious weekend.

We advertise great rooms to rent in locations all across the country.  There’s a plethora of property types - houses, flats, converted barns, houseboats, mansion houses, Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, sleekly modern, oldy worldly thatched cottages, some with pools and/or gyms, others with roof terraces and bar areas, views of the city, next to the Thames, near to airports, close to stations, overlooking parks or gardens, some even next to Tower Bridge - the list goes on. There are all sorts of benefits and a price and rental terms to suit all situations.
