Our Daisies' Favourite Staycation Breaks

Where have you all been escaping to over the last year?

If there's one thing for sure, we've all learnt to lean into the joys of the staycation. Yes, the British weather can be unpredictable, but there's something about a change of scenery, no matter how local it might be, that really resets the system and helps us feel afresh. At Daisy, we've taken the chance to escape as much as possible. So, with summer ahead of us, we're sharing some of our favourite staycation spots with you.

The Cotswolds

We spent a weekend with Estée at Soho Farmhouse which feels like forever ago now, and we've been dreaming of it ever since. If you do manage to book a room, drop whatever you're doing and go. This place books up fast. Failing Farmhouse, why not try The Fish, where you can choose between treehouses fit for a Queen and the cutest little shepherds huts, complete with outdoor Jacuzzis.

What jewellery to pack?

We shot the Estée Elevate collection in The Cotswolds’ answer to an Ibizan party pad back in November. So we're packing some of our favourite pieces from that shoot: the Estée Lalonde Interlock Necklace and Bracelet—in gold and silver. We're also obsessed with layering those Chunky Curb Chain Rings.


It seems like half the country has been flocking to Cornwall this year, and the Daisy team have been no exception. In search of surf, sea, and (fingers crossed) sun, its azure waters and dramatic coastline transport you to a place that feels a lot further away than South-West England. Then there's the food! Ice cream, cream teas, pasties, and some of the best seafood in the country. We think the best thing to do when it comes to a holiday in Cornwall is to get on AirBnB (quick!) and find a house for you and your pals—as close to the ocean as possible.

What jewellery to pack?

Would it be a seaside holiday if we didn't pack something from our Isla collection? A perfect pairing for dinner out, pack Daisy's Isla Double Shell Earrings or Coral Drop Earrings in gold or silver.


Our bestee, Estée, recently escaped to Devon with her doggo, Effie, for some fresh air and country walks in Dartmoor, and we'd be lying if we said we weren't a little jealous. One of the most ruggedly romantic places in the country, the River Dart has become a favourite spot with wild swimmers. Brace yourself; it's chilly!

What jewellery to pack?

Make like Estée and pack one of our all-time favourites, the Estée Lalonde Trinity Ring, a staple piece in gold or silver.


Two of our Daisies, Meg, our Marketing Manager and Sally, our Marketing Director are Somerset locals, so they know it like the back of their hand. From the Regency-era architecture of Bath to the artsy crowd in Frome, there's something for everyone in Somerset. We love At The Chapel in Bruton, a converted chapel and bakery by day, restaurant by evening, hotel by night – and we're dying for a room at The Newt.

What jewellery to pack?

There may be no Glastonbury, but Somerset is a place where artists flock and creativity thrives, so why not channel a bit of that with a piece from our Artisan collection? Daisy's Artisan Woven Necklace adds a statement to any outfit, or why add a bit of edge to your earring stack with our Stamped Drop Huggie Earrings.


Ruth, our Creative Director, headed off to Wild Escapes in Hampshire earlier this year for a digital detox and creative escape. Four treehouses overlook a valley of vineyards, making it feel more Southern Italy than Southern England. We're talking outdoor baths, log-burners, and yes, no internet. If you can't imagine yourself logging off for that long, why not try Lime Wood, in The New Forest, for the ultimate spa escape.

What jewellery to pack?

We upped our layering game and went head-to-toe Estée with the Estée Lalonde Goddess Snake Chain, Figaro Chain, and Flow Huggie Hoops. Oh, and don't forget to pack one of our 'Til Dusk candles for those outdoor soaks.


For us, Dorset conjures up childhood memories of melting ice creams and crabbing in Salcombe. There's something so perennial about holidays here. From The Ferry's Inn to Cranch's Sweet Shop: it never seems to change. In our opinion, there's no better stay in Dorset than at The Pig on The Beach.

What jewellery to pack?

Channel your childhood with a timeless piece from our classic Daisy collection, like our dainty Iota Daisy Hoops or our classic English Daisy Necklace.


If you're after a city escape, then Brighton has all of London's buzz but by the sea. From a bit of retail therapy in The Lanes, some old-school fun on its famous pier or late-night frolics on the promenade. Right in the thick of things, we love The Artist's Residence because it mirrors this fun-loving city's quirky sense of style.

What jewellery to pack?

Anything goes in this trendy seaside town. Celebrate that carefree spirit by packing a piece from our Vita collection. We guarantee you'll get plenty of compliments in a pair of our Athena Hoops.


And then, there's always camping! Leo, in our ops team, recently bought himself a VW Campervan and is planning a road trip around the UK this summer. Nothing screams freedom more than the open road, right?

What jewellery to pack?

I mean, it's camping. Jewellery is optional. But what about some essentials from our Stacked collection? You never need to take off your Stacked Linked Chain Necklace or your Stacked Rope Creole Hoops.
