Have you broken your new year resolutions yet, with temptations to get that take away or glass of wine just too great? Like the beginning of any new year many of us consider lifestyle changes and for many, this new year a digital detox will be on your resolutions list…
Refreshing Facebook every 5 minutes? Excessively checking emails and worrying about finding Wi-Fi to upload your recent snaps? Well, you’re not alone; this year on average the UK spent 3 hours and 15 minutes a day on our phones, checking it 58 times and rarely going for more than 2 hours without checking notifications!
With that in mind, we’ve made a resolution to take time away from the screen, in order to feel truly disconnected and to appreciate the stunning area in which we are so lucky to live. Enjoy a luxury escape with a North Yorkshire holiday. Read a good old-fashioned book in front of a roaring log fire, watch gorgeous sunsets from the terrace of your lakeside lodge or get outside and explore the great outdoors.
Out and about...
Alternatively, get out and about in the area and these are our top tips to enhance your North Yorkshire holiday.
HEAD TO THE SPA: The relaxing space that is now the Garage Spa was once an ancient stopping station for travellers winding their way between London and Carlisle. Now it is an award-winning spa in the Teesdale countryside. Book their amazing Refresher Spa Package for £69 Monday to Thursday, and £79 per person for Friday to Monday. They also do single treatments and use of the spa facilities is included when you book a spa package.
Stretch your legs on one of the many local walks in the area. A walking map is included in your holiday cottage or lakeside lodge’s welcome wallet for around the property. Or go a bit further afield and enjoy the sights of Reeth, Malham Cove, the Cleveland Walkfest, or the thousands of other walks in the area.
If you’re not quite on the green smoothies and rice crackers, explore the many local pubs and restaurants Yorkshire has to offer right on your doorstep. We’re excited for this Food Festival the first weekend of February at the beautiful Rockliffe Hall. There’s a chef’s table, tastings, demonstrations and more. Yum!
An unmissable event, celebrating the starry night skies over the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North York Moors National Park.
