1. Reformer retreats
The first retreat we wanted to recommend is for those looking to be challenged, inspired, relaxed and recharged. Reformer Retreats is a new and unique boutique experience that focuses on Pilates whilst providing a variety of activities to enhance your weekend retreat experience. The retreat is based in Southport as a rule breaking 4 star hotel located on the coast.

2. Hoar Cross Hall
Next on our list of weekend retreats has to be Hoar Cross Hall. This place is a well known spa and for good reason. The location is stunning, the treatments are exceptional and the whole experience is second to none when it comes to spa breaks with its state of the art facilities. This particular spa break is located in Staffordshire in a beautiful hall with stunning grounds. The hall is believed to have been built in the 15th century. Back then it would have had a moat and drawbridge. In 2005 the spa was developed and over more recent years, the public rooms, bedrooms and spa have had substantial investment in their refurbishment to create a more contemporary look and feel.
The benefits of a spa break is that it helps you to destress, whilst also providing you with pain relief. Here are some of the benefits of spa treatments:
- They can relieve pain
- Helps to smooth skin
- Releases serotonin and dopamine
- Enhances your sleep
- Reduces headaches
If you are in the mood for some real alone time to escape reality for a while, why not check out some of the amazing lodges and breaks offered by hoseasons. There are all kinds of lodges available to choose from all over the country. Whether it’s you on your own or whether you fancy bringing the kids along with you, you can travel as far or close to home as you like. All of the lodges are high quality, traditional and cosy. We recommend opting for one with a hot tub to really make it feel like you’re on holiday. Take some books and DVDs and get comfortable in front of the log burner.
