This brings the total investment at Haggerston Castle to £6m over the past two years. Another indication maybe that the staycation trend could continue during 2011. Haven enjoyed a record year during 2010 even better than 2009 when the term staycation was first introduced to us. Signs for a 2011 staycation look good with bookings already ahead of the same point last year.
