Guernsey: Four wellness retreats less than an hour from mainland Britain

The excitement is still sinking in that we’re going to be teaming up with Aurigny, Visit Guernsey, and La Pointe Farm to provide coverage of the Guernsey Food Festival at the end of September, and a review of what makes this such a special location to consider from the north of England (more details, including a rundown of the new Aurigny route between Guernsey and Leeds Bradford, can be found here).Chris George Photography - Coast Media -

Food, amazing scenery, and special accommodation options aside, what else does Guernsey have to offer? Well, the folk at Visit Guernsey have put together four options for a short-break retreat on the island for those who like to be pampered and who love to indulge themselves.

Wellbeing Experience at Old Government House Hotel

The OGH offers a luxuriously relaxed getaway with its three night Wellbeing Experience. The package includes a fitness assessment and one hour personal training session with a qualified instructor, a 60 minute treatment of choice at The Spa, as well as complimentary use of the gym, spa pools, sauna and steam room. A revitalising afternoon tea and breakfast each morning is also included.

Yoga Retreat at Fermain Valley Hotel (24 – 25 September 2016)

The four star Fermain Valley Hotel becomes a yoga retreat for one night and two full days in September in collaboration with Yoga Elements. The yoga package includes seven hours of yoga workshop, incorporating Hatha Yoga Flow, guided relaxation yoga practice, restorative yoga, guided meditation and guided Yoga Nirda. The one night package includes a healthy brunch, afternoon tea, and a Moroccan-themed dinner.

Yoga, Well-being and Aging Gracefully Retreat in Herm (21-23 October & 28-30 October 2016)

The yoga and well-being retreat on Herm Island is run by Power Yoga and includes six hours of yoga tuition, including Asana (physical postures), Pranayama (breathing), meditation, restorative & Yin Yoga, and Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation). The weekend also includes a ‘Move, Play, Rest and Re-Set’ workshop and optional treatments. Guests stay in the private rooms of the White House Cottages where there are no signs at all of modern, technology-focused life!

Wellness in Sark

Stocks Hotel boasts charm aplenty on the island of Sark, a 45-minute ferry ride from Guernsey. With the hotel’s three day wellness package, guests will enjoy clean air with a three hour guided walk of Sark, a boat trip around the island, and bike hire for the duration of their stay. The package also includes a horse and carriage tour around Sark either during the day or after dark.
