Reduce Stress with Top Experience Days

July 26, 2012 · Posted in Family 

As we spend our days chasing around after the kids or working longer and longer hours, life can be pretty tough so there’s no better time to check out our top activities that are sure to reduce stress.

Why not consider an exciting experience day when you’re not sure what to buy your Mum? From indulgent pampering for luxury-lovers, decadent afternoon teas for Mums who never have time to treat themselves and cookery classes for domestic goddesses, there really is something out there for everyone. For adrenaline junkies, there’s also everything from aerobatics to zorbing.

Staying in boutique hotels is always a memorable experience with their emphasis on high-end design, delicious food and personal service. There are so many luxurious hotels around the country to choose from when you want to treat someone special to an indulgent break on a special occasion from historic country houses to elegant city retreats. With its stunning spa and gourmet cuisine, the Feversham Arms in North Yorkshire has a laid-back, home-from-home vibe and is a world away from the stresses of everyday life.

Explore the Scottish capital from the stunning five-star Glasshouse Hotel as you head north of the border on a break that includes everything from complimentary mineral water to dinner at Harvey Nicholls’ chic Fourth Floor restaurant. Alternatively, a break at magnificent Peckforton Castle, a Grade 1-listed former stately home in Cheshire allows you to enjoy some Gothic luxury.

If the person you’re spoiling has always hankered after a career on the stage, loves dressing up and can mimic every accent under the sun, then a murder mystery break is a great way for them to step not only away from the daily grind, but into another character entirely for a few hours of escapist fun. For a stress-busting getaway, how about a weekend far from the mayhem of daily life, spent under canvas in a Western tepee?
