Lazy days… We all need them every so often, to reset, refresh and refuel our energy levels. They’re almost a form of therapy. A rare opportunity to spend the entire day, at home, without frantic schedules or stressful work.
An entire day (or part) simply spent enjoying the comfort of our slippers and leaving the watches on the nightstand, not needing to keep any track of time. We move through the day, moment by moment, led by desire, instead of having to plan ahead and keep up with schedules.
These lazy days are especially necessary at least once during a holiday – it wouldn’t be down time otherwise! At Well Cottage we have kicked the lazy day concept up a notch, to be treated and honoured, instead as a full day of the ultimate indulgence.
This way, you can choose to have lazy days over and over again, to ensure you get back to being the best version of yourself, no matter how many lazy days that takes. We have such a wide array of options for everyone, so whether you’re travelling alone, with friends or with children, we can guarantee, there’ll be something for you.
So without further ado, here is a taste of the many things to do without leaving Well Cottage…
Basque in the joy of being pampered
Sit Back & Relax
Whether it’s a lie in and breakfast in bed, reading a good book or watching the little ones play in the garden while sipping on an exotic cocktail or enjoying the very British cup of tea by the fire, or even let us run you a luxuriously relaxing bath complete with calming music, mountains of bubbles and a glass of wine, let us take care of it all.
We pride ourselves on our attentive personal service, so that you get to leave your worries behind and focus on what really matters, spending quality time together with your loved ones. We take ‘pure relaxation’ very seriously here at Well Cottage.
Spa Treatments (18+ years)
For the ultimate relaxation, take advantage of our inclusive, in-house spa treatments. Choose from our special English Cottage Vacation selection of therapies and we will arrange for a local therapist to specially come to Well Cottage where they will provide your treatment in the comfort of your home away from home’s surroundings.
Make the most of the British day and basque in your pampering outside in the garden! Nature provides a glorious view and the birds will lull you into a trance with their sweet tunes.
