Five dreamy locations to escape for a spa break

By in Blog with 0 Comments

Picture the scene…  You’re lying in a dimly-lit room, wrapped in a warm fluffy towel with your eyes softly closed. Soothing music is playing in the background and heavenly scents fill the air. Under the skilled hands of an expert therapist, you’ve just experienced the most incredible back massage and all your aches and pains have melted away.


Reluctantly, your thoughts turn to leaving the room and retreating to a restful lounger next to the indoor heated swimming pool; you want to take some time to make sure you feel the full and lasting benefits of your treatment.  Perhaps later on, when you’re feeling more attuned to your surrounds, you’ll jump in the hot tub for a pick-me-up before you decide what to wear for tonight’s celebration dinner.

You’re in a Spa, right? Wrong. You’re staying at Ellenglaze in Cornwall, one of Unique Home Stays’ unique luxury properties where My Personal Sanctuary delivers equally indulgent visiting spa treatments, to make your stay a spa break.

Unique Home Stays is one of the remarkable organisations we partner with to bring the atmosphere and treatments of an indulgent spa to clients staying in luxury private accommodation.  There really is a destination to suit each and every one of us.  So whether you’re seeking a quiet retreat for two, searching for a family getaway or planning a sophisticated Hen party, read on for some inspiration.

Little Bear

Little Bear

For an eco retreat in stunning surroundings try Little Bear. Set in acres upon acres of bluebell-swathed woodland, this secret cabin hideaway in the heart of the Weald Downlands in West Sussex is the perfect location to indulge in spa treatments and award winning organic Neal’s Yard products.  Relax afterwards in the eco hot tub and take in the sights and sounds the ancient woodlands around you.

Two Bare Feet

Two Bare Feet

Searching for a relaxing spa break for you and a loved one? Those with a lust for the al fresco life will bask in the luxury of Two Bare Feet, a New Zealand inspired love nest near Holywell Bay on the Cornish coast.  We can provide two skilled therapists with our Time for Two package to ease your aches and pains with joint treatments on the deck to the sounds of the fire crackling beside you.

Planning a high-end Hen party? Then head to Ceredigion in Wales. Florin is a beautiful luxury house set in five acres of magical gardens. Sophistication, style and intrigue come in equal measure at this stylish manor house.  Hens can find their favourite spot and relax in the five acres of manicured gardens or cosy up in front one of the roaring fires after a long day of sophisticated spa treatments.  Tailor the package to suit the group and treat the bride-to-be to a relaxing aromatherapy massage and signature eye intense treatment to make sure she is bright eyed and rejuvenated. The other girls can relax and enjoy catching up over a manicure or pedicure.

The Artists´ Beach House

The Artists´ Beach House in Whitstable, Kent is the perfect setting for a house party celebration.
Set on the beach in a spectacular yet quiet corner of the fashionable fishing port of Whitstable, this clapper board beach house will make your festivities truly memorable.  The house can accommodate up to eight guests and MPS can cater for everyone with a series of treatments designed specifically for larger groups.  Our larger packages are designed with groups in mind, and it’s easy to share them around your guests by having either 20 minute, 30 minute or longer treatments.  A 30 minute treatment with one therapist can be as little as £33.75 per person.  Affordable and for everyone to join in!

So next time you’re thinking of taking a spa break, think again, there are so many unique alternative locations to choose from.  We’re experienced in delivering our treatments to guests staying in properties across the UK, from yurts in the middle of butterfly fields, to castles, luxury log cabin retreats and even houses in the sea.
