I'm coming to the end of one of the most stressful periods of my life and have earmarked a few days at the end of the first week of March to take a break and try to unwind.
Normally, I would jump at the chance of exploring a new foreign city but I'm just too knackered. I need, and I suppose it was bound to happen once I sneaked past 50, "a rest".
I'm in London, with no car, don't want to spend more than, say, 5 hours getting somewhere. I'm not looking for luxury, just somewhere interesting where I can go for a stroll in the morning, relax in the afternoon and not be limited in my choice for dinner. I suppose some public transport would be necessary to get around.
Anyone got any recommndations for somewhere in the UK or not too far abroad?
Marrakech in Morroco. Four hours on the plane and the chance to step into another world...
Have you thought about the English Heritage cottages? Check out the link, but if there's anything listed in Margate, avoid it.
There are other sites that do the same kind of thing too.
Edinburgh. An hour away by plane. Beautiful city, loads to see and do, nice restaurants.
Channel Islands. Dublin.
For stress-free travel from London: via Eurostar to Bruges.
Don't let your mind wander - one day it won't come back.
If you're planning on flying, it's well worth flying from London City airport for the most stress-free airport experience. It may be a bit more expensive, but it's so easy from there, I use it a lot.

Sherborne in Dorset is a nice spot, lovely little town on Dorset Somerset border. Beautiful abbey, Nice Italian and Indian restaurants.
Plenty of pubs in walking distance. Sherborne castle where Sir Walter Raleigh lived, Fleet air arm museum just 15mins away, very laid back.
