Thornbury Castle, Cotswolds


Take a trip to the Cotswolds and take a step back in time to check out the unforgettable Tudor castle that is located at the edge of the Cotswolds.  The castle is perfect as a little get-a-away from the hussle and bussle of everyday life and combines 500 year-old-architecture with sumptuous facilities.  De-stress as you take a stroll around the well looked after lawns or book in a massage in your own bedchamber, before enjoying a mouth-watering meal in the castle’s exclusive restaurant.  The hotel is steeped in history, surrounded by unspoiled grounds and the lovely landscape of the Cotswolds.

Tilton House, Firle, East Sussex

Relax in a large and beautiful Georgian house in masses of mature gardens that have exquisite views of the break-taking South Downs. The rooms are filled with colour and natural light to help you lift your spirits. What best way to relax than enjoying a spot of yoga, some creative writing or chilling out in the annexe?

The Retreat at Witherdens Hall, Wingham, Kent

Want some time for away from family, friends, colleuges and even the dog? If everything is getting too much and you just want to take some ‘me-time’, why not head down to Wingham, Kent and choose from two self-catering cottages in the converted barns of a family home with airy interiors and stylish furniture. If you fancy doing activities what will help you to relax, you can arrange reiki, one-to-one meditation, organic pharmacy facials, massage, aromatherapy and acupuncture with local therapists.


The Grange, Shanklin, Isle of Wight
