Self-catering holidays are all about being as busy or as laid-back as you like… but our goal is always to send you home with a little extra spring in your step!
Big skies, rolling landscapes and an ever-changing coastline fill Suffolk with the feelgood factor, and offer plenty of ways in which you can unwind and de-stress. If regular activity is key to your downtime, there are miles of running, walking and cycling routes on your doorstep. Or, for a one-off experience, how about booking a kayaking adventure? One of our Holiday Extras, Nomad Sea Kayaking offers a range of on-the-water trips to cater for all ages and levels of experience along the River Orwell, or you could opt for a seven-mile nautical adventure that visits a seal colony just off the coast at the county border with Essex.
There are further opportunities to get closer to nature courtesy of Suffolk Wildlife Trust, which runs a number of one-day courses. Subjects include bird identification, beekeeping, sketching, weaving and woodblock printmaking, and the courses take place at five SWT locations around the county.
If you can walk, you can Nordic Walk, so why not have a go with another of our hand-picked Holiday Extras sessions? This whole-body exercise claims benefits including improved posture, gait and co-ordination, plus an increase in calories-burnt of up to 40 per cent more. Book your lesson with a qualified instructor now – poles are supplied and your session can take place Southwold, Aldeburgh or in private woodland in the village of Wilby.
For another way to stretch out and relax into your holiday, how about a private yoga session? Highly qualified instructor Angie Lee-Foster has a slow and peaceful approach to teaching somatic-based movement, yoga postures, mindfulness and breath work and sessions can be booked for between two and 12 guests.
For the ultimate in indulgence, try a Fire and Ice spa day at Ufford Park, just outside Woodbridge. This exclusive holiday extra gives you the chance to sample the extremes of heating and cooling body experiences, plus a light lunch and drink, and purchasers of this package also benefit from discounts on body or facial treatments.
Of course, our hand-picked holiday cottages are so nice, you might not want to tear yourself away from them… so how about hiring a hot tub for your stay? Take a look at our self-catering properties which can accommodate one or talk to us about arranging for a visiting spa company to tailor a luxurious pamper treatment package just for you… take a look at our Holiday Extras for details.
