Treat yourself to a Wellness Retreat
The summer holidays might be behind us but can you feel that Christmas is already creeping up? Perhaps before Santa's sleigh really starts to sledge into town, you could do with giving yourself a bit of space and precious "me time". May we suggest you retreat to Scilly? Slip away and escape to the islands for a short break with your friends, or create some lasting memories on a weekend with your loved ones.
Late autumn is a wonderfully quiet time of year on the Isles of Scilly when locals kick back and visitors can really experience island life. It's also a time that draws in Scilly's romantics and creative folk – residential artists, composing musicians, writers and novelists - all of them inspired to write, design and craft by Scilly's incredible natural environment, hypnotic winter light, wildlife and sweet birdsong, clean air - and space (lots of empty space!). Freedom to think, to wonder, to dream.
So why not come and join us for a quiet retreat of your own? A spot of yoga, perhaps, coupled with some bracing winter walks, mesmerising ocean views, starry nights and a luxury spa treatment or two, Or for the more active, some spectacular coastal runs and bracing sea swims, all celebrated with delicious coffee and yummy cakes from the year-round cafes, pubs and delis. Or perhaps you'd like to join in with the islands' artists or visiting writers at a workshop or two and immerse yourself in the islands rich and fascinating maritime heritage.
Or maybe you just simply want to find yourself a cosy cottage or a sheltered spot on our stunning coastline and settle in for a few days with a good book?
Whatever your health and wellness means to you, just leave all your mainland worries at home and give yourself a Scilly treat this winter.
