Sykes Cottages has released the ‘Mini Collection’; a selection of its cutest, tiniest holiday properties across the UK - that prove living smaller has bigger benefits.

Here’s five reasons why you should be considering a real ‘mini break’ this year.

It’s mentally liberating

The more space and stuff’ we have round us, the more mental energy we exude on them. By staying in a tiny property, you have more time to focus on yourself and your companions, as well as the experiences you’ll have as part of your staycation

Having less baggage

Leave your baggage at home – literally. There’s no room for a boot full of bags in a tiny home and the less items you bring with you, the less you have to worry about; freeing up time, space and energy to relax and enjoy your stay

Make closer connections

Having a smaller space to stay in brings you together with whoever you’re sharing it with. Being in close proximity to one another will facilitate a deeper interaction and bonding, this is particularly beneficial for couples looking to spend a romantic getaway together.

Being closer to nature

Staying in a small property can encourage you to make use of the natural space around you. For example, Sykes’ Kerensa property is on a family run farm and has beautiful views over open countryside as well as a wood burning hot tub.

Pure cosiness

Above all other benefits of a mini trip, tiny homes are pretty cosy. With all their nooks, crannies and compact furniture, a day snuggled up in front of a fire with hot drinks and chocolates, doesn’t sound half bad in a tiny property.
