A world of winter sunsets

Kick off the New Year with a headspace getaway to the UKís most southerly point.

T1his winter it is more important than ever to stay on top of our wellbeing, and what could be a better way to do that than to escape from the noise of everyday into arms of nature? Hidden in the wilds of Cornwall’s most remote edge can be found Housel Bay hotel, an idyllic spot for reflection and regeneration in 2022. Amongst the flora and fauna of the Cornish coastline, find yourself away from it all in a world of calm and quiet contemplation as you look out from the cliff tops across the horizon. 

Based in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Lizard Peninsula, Housel Bay is unequalled in terms of where it is and what it has to offer. You can immerse yourself in nature by taking invigorating walks along empty coastal paths that encompass stunning views of roaring wintery waves; or engage in quiet contemplation in front of the crackling fire. Book yourself in to a yoga class in the new studio replete with ambient lighting, sound system and calming scents, or, if you’re feeling brave, then why not boost your immune system and meander through the hotel’s garden down to the beach for an invigorating cold-water swim?

Drift along to their signature restaurant Fallowfields to engage in a culinary tour of the Lizard Peninsula, with a five-course tasting menu enhanced with carefully paired wines. The head chef, Joseph Fallowfield, is guided by the seasons, creating wonderfully delicious dishes to warm you through on a winter’s evening. You can then complete your experience by star gazing with uninterrupted southern views whilst sipping West Country gin and local tonic from Marconi’s Bar.

To round it all off you can head off to bed in one of their recently refurbished bedrooms for a perfect night’s sleep; ready to face the world anew – revived and refreshed. So, what more can we say, after a year of troubled uncertainty, why not slip away from it all and head to Housel Bay, to bring some balance and composure back to your life?
