I’ve mentioned quite a few times about how I want to explore the UK more and see more of what my own coutry has to offer. While hotels are a great option for cities I much prefer the idea of a cottage break when I’m going on a retreat or staycation. I’ve stayed in cottages with my friends before and it’s always nice having a bit more freedom and flexibility to cook for yourself, have more social space and outdoor space to enjoy some much needed relaxation. Here are three luxury retreats that I’d love to visit.
Pentire View, Broadmeadows in Wadebridge, Mid Cornwall
Cornwall has been on my my to visit list for such a long time as I want to experience the beaches, try out surfing and just enjoy being so far away from my home. Pentire View is a beautiful luxury retreat located in Wadebridge which is in South-West Cornwall which has fishing villages, dolphin-rich waters, woodlands and coves for exploring. The idea of being close to a beach where you can walk on the sands and get some real fresh air really appeals to me. Pentire View feels like it’s in the middle of nowhere with views of rolling hills and countryside and the social living area is really open plan which is great when you’re with a group and cooking for yourselves.
The Golf Apartment in Kendal, Lake District
The Lake District is another place which has been high on my to visit list as I’ve not been to the area since I completed my Duke of Edinburgh in Secondary School. The Lake District is the sort of place with clear air, mountain ranges and clear waters through lakes so it would be perfect for a break away from life where I could go on hikes and try out kayaking for the first time in the waters. The Golf Apartment is located just opposite a golf course which I know Luke would love as he loves playing golf and staying this apartment gives you 50% off at the course which is a great discount. The apartment itself is really contemporary and looks out over the course in parts. This is a luxury retreat which would be great for both me and Luke if we wanted to do a weekend away.
Belle View in Brighton
I’ve always loved Brighton when I’ve been before but other than for the odd gig I’ve never stayed in the city so I’d love to do a long weekend break on the seafront. Belle View is just a short walk from the seafront and from the living room you can even see the famous Brighton Pier which is somewhere I’ve barely explored before. I’m keen to see more of the city and have a trip to the original Choccywoccydoodah as it was so busy last time when I visited. The penthouse is state of the art and has off-street parking which is really unusual for the city as it’s such a great location for a luxury retreat.
