The end of summer is fast approaching and we've just had the last bank holiday of the year. If you've got the post summer blues and are desperate for a short fix of rest and recuperation, Neatsmith has just the solution...
“The beauty of doing the Digital Detox at Chewton Glen is the immersion into nature and that sense of being able to disconnect completely because everything around you is supporting that.” Taking a Digital Detox at Chewton Glen in the New Forest allows you to escape life’s stresses. Here, your tech will be locked away for the duration of your two-night stay, during which you’ll participate in relaxation activities including a private yoga class, a meditation session and a country ramble. You’ll also indulge in luxury face and body treatments, breakfast, lunch and dinner based on the alkaline diet. You’ll leave with a hamper of gifts for the mind and soul.
Enter a world of complete serenity at this adult-only oasis. Try the detox break at the Lifehouse Spa in Thorpe-Le-Soken – a three-night cleanse, with a diet to improve your digestive health, sleep patterns and complexion; a reflexology session; a detoxifying seaweed body wrap; and a full body massage. While digital devices aren’t strictly prohibited, spending the whole weekend on WhatsApp certainly wouldn’t go down that well...There’s 12 acres of listed gardens to enjoy and the whole of the spa floor is strictly phone free – time to totally switch off and be at one.
Just 45 minutes from London, this glorious country manor is set in 240 acres of garden and parkland. Stressed-out city dwellers can revel in the peace package, a spa-and-stay break at which guests can choose to surrender their phones and other devices for the entirety of their stay. The package includes luxury accommodation for two, a proper English country breakfast, a 50 minute Swedish massage to grind out all those knots from hunching over a screen, and use of the private relaxation room. Return to the big smoke rejuvenated, refreshed and unburdened by technology.
Book yourself in for The Westin’s digital detox package and liberate yourself from all your gadgets. On arrival, you’ll lock your phone and other Facebook-accessing devices in a safe and won’t have them back until you leave. In their place, you’ll get a detox survival kit, which includes a board game and a relaxation candle to help you zone out, a walking map of Dublin and a physical newspaper. Come morning, breakfast will be served in bed, followed by an in-room massage.
