Emma Barton’s last minute stay-cation with Trending Travel

Emma Barton

Here at Trending Travel we don’t just specialise in finding you your perfect holiday abroad, we’re a bit of a dab hand at staycations too! When Eastenders and Strictly star Emma Barton had her Wintersun trip to Tenerife cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak on the island, we had to act fast to ensure she didn’t miss out on a well-earned break between her crazy filming schedule and before lockdown restrictions were put in place. Fortunately we have a pretty impressive roster of hotels here in the UK (if we do say so ourselves!), so putting Emma’s stay-cay together was no problem for Team TT.


First stop, the stunning Limewood hotel in Hampshire. Newly renovated and oozing luxury, the Limewood is home to the beautiful Herb House spa, perfect for unwinding and recharging the batteries after a long day in the ballroom! The scenery’s not bad either as Emma kindly demonstrated! We’re not jealous at all…


We know Emma is a sucker for a picturesque walk when she’s got some time to herself, which is why we suggested Lympstone Manor in Devon as the next stop on her trip. The perfectly manicured grounds mean you’d be crazy not to go for a wander to build up an appetite for the Michelin star fine dining experience that awaits you back at the hotel, courtesy of chef Michael Caines. Emma herself described it as a ‘wonderful dining experience with excellent service… 10/10’. Not bad! Have you ever seen someone pull off a fedora and blazer with Hunters? You have now… Wellies never looked so good!


Last but not least on Emma’s itinerary was The Scarlet hotel in Cornwall. Famed for its gorgeous beach and sea views, Emma wasted no time making the most of the cliff top (yes, cliff top!) hot tub, even popping open a spot of bubbly before enjoying a stunning view of  the Cornwall sunset. Why not?! The following day Emma took to the spa for one last dose of heavenly relaxation, opting for a hot poultice massage before returning home feeling suitably refreshed and rejuvenated.

Safe to say we reckon Emma enjoyed the long overdue break from her hectic schedule and it just goes to show that you don’t always have to travel across the world for a taste of the lavish things in life!
