UK travel had a resurgence when borders were closed during the pandemic, and it seems the trend is here to stay. Amanda Bower of Travel Counsellors gives us her top places for the perfect UK escape.
Godstone Valley | Surrey
Create your own festival, retreat, or occasion in an exclusive area of land in the Surrey hills, with spectacular views. The location is ideal for a corporate retreat, family gathering, wellness retreat, or creative and fitness retreat, and can be tailor made to your specific requirements.
Each beautiful 6-metre bell tent has comfortable double beds with proper mattresses, bedside tables and reading lamps, a full-length mirror, and a sofa. All bedding, linens, and power points are included. Hot showers, real toilets, and a magnificent giant tipi with a banquet table, lounge, and a games area are also part of the deal. This a unique getaway offering a combination of glamping accommodation and first-class hospitality.
Yoga and Wild Swimming Retreat | Anglesey, North Wales
Truly immerse yourself in the wild landscape of North Wales, on a luxury wild swimming and yoga retreat on the isle of Anglesey and experience the rejuvenating power of nature.
Once you arrive at your country house, surrounded by acres of idyllic parkland, you’ll embark on a weekend adventure that will get you back in touch with nature, and leave you feeling refreshed and re-energised, having the full benefit of escaping busy life and returning to the great outdoors.
Set out each day and discover a beautiful new wild swimming location, exploring the beautiful Anglesey coastline with its hidden, misty coves, secluded beaches, majestic sand dunes and stunning countryside and get sand between your toes with beach yoga sessions.
These are spots that the locals have been using for hundreds of years, but they’re far enough off the tourist trail to still feel totally wild, wonderfully unique, and completely unspoilt, so you can bask in the feeling of swimming in complete seclusion.
This is a retreat suitable for anyone; solo travellers, couples and groups of friends who want to explore the stunning coastline of North Wales from a totally unique perspective, and for those people who really want to get away from it all, be as active or relaxed as you like in true wilderness.
