1. Stay an extra night (or two)

Sometimes one night away just isn’t enough. Give yourself the time to truly relax on a slightly longer escape. We promise you’ll really notice the difference. Can’t manage a longer stay? Make sure you maximise every second of your break. There’s no need to head off straight after checkout, hang around and enjoy a lazy lunch, a stroll around the grounds or a final splash in the pool.

2. Unplug and unwind

Don’t let summer pass you by. Give yourself the chance to truly soak up the season by ditching your tech for a few days and enjoying the here and now. To help you fully unwind, why not spend a phone-free day or two on a spa getaway? Indulge in some soothing treatments and put your stresses to one side as you relax by the pool. You’ll leave feeling refreshed, revitalised and ready to make the most of summer!

3. Visit somewhere new

Whether it’s somewhere you’ve always wanted to tick off your travel bucket list or a spot you’ve chosen at random (why not try closing your eyes and pointing at a map of the UK?) make this the summer you stray from the norm and try something a bit different. You never know, you may discover your new favourite getaway.

When you’re there, try and challenge yourself to explore beyond the usual tourist spots and discover some of the hidden gems the locals love. Our hotel staff are always happy to share their recommendations.

5. Explore nature

Make the most of the sunshine and longer days to get out into nature and explore. Enjoy some of Great Britain’s stunning scenery on a hike or soak up the flora and fauna at any of the gorgeous gardens up and down the country. You’ll be glad you took advantage when autumn rolls around and you want to spend your time hibernating on the sofa.

Why not visit Slaley Hall Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort? 

Perched on the cusp of the North Pennines Area of outstanding natural beauty and with 1,000 acres of surrounding woodland to explore, it’s the perfect spot for getting back to nature.
