Make 2021 the year for you! Now more than ever it’s important to take time to sit back, relax, and look after ourselves. A short break away (once it’s safe for us to do so!) is a great way to achieve this, and we’ve put together our top suitcase essentials to ensure your holiday is a rejuvenating and refreshing one.
Books, books, and more books! Known to reduce stress and increase empathy, the benefits of reading are extensive. If you’re looking to completely switch off and relax during your break away then a good book (or two) to lose yourself in is an essential. Whatever takes your fancy, there’s no better feeling than curling up with a good book after a brilliant day out exploring.
2. A journal
Holidays are all about making memories, and journaling is a great way to hold onto the precious memories you make to reflect on later in life. Wholesome and relaxing, journalling is great for boosting wellness and channelling positivity. Feeling creative? You can even turn your journal into a mini scrapbook with pictures, keepsakes, and souvenirs from your stay!
3. Picnic Hamper
Nothing says relaxation quite like a delicious picnic in the countryside or whilst overlooking stunning coastal views. Whether you’re visiting us at the woodland escape that is Sandy Balls, or one of our coastal retreats such as Whitecliff Bay, be sure to pack a stocked hamper of goodies to enjoy during your stay.
4. Walking shoes
There really is nothing quite as refreshing as a crisp afternoon stroll in nature, and luckily for you our parks are situated in some of the most beautiful parts of the UK with dozens of spectacular local walking routes. So, grab your hiking boots and get moving! There are so many physical and mental benefits of exercise, so even a short morning walk is bound to have you feeling rejuvenated and ready for the day ahead.
5. Skin care face mask
Whether you’re joining us for a long or short break away this year, a face mask is a self-care essential for your suitcase. One of life’s little luxuries, a face mask is a great way to freshen up the skin and leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Wanting to take your evening of luxury to another level? Why not treat yourself to a delicious takeaway from a local business or tuck into a brilliant meal on park.
