Bright evenings have turned dreary and dark, fallen leaves are now a golden brown and the day is light yet crisp; autumn is finally here. This is the perfect season for weekends away and fun activities to brighten our moods as we welcome the colder days.
Ditch your phone and venture in to the New Forest for a weekend. Camping is a fantastic way of getting in touch with nature and forgetting about our typical day-to-day worries and a way to enjoy a low-maintenance, relaxed weekend amongst some beautiful scenery. Just wrap up warm!
However if camping just isn’t for you, then ‘glamping’ may be the one. The Camping Pods in Suffolk are small wooden huts providing comfort and adventure for the less outdoorsy camper. In a private segment of woodland fringing Thetford forest park, the four en-suite West Stow Pods each offer a double bed, sofa, fitted kitchen and a television for rainy days. There are also open air museums and an archaeological site nearby for some extra entertainment during your stay. At £65 per night for two people and then an extra £25 per adult, glamping pods are the perfect adventure for either a couple or a group of friends.
Spa weekends are ideal for the fall season; replacing the cold blues with hot saunas and cool pools. The Espa Life Spa at the Corinthia isn’t only aesthetically beautiful but it also provides a place of serenity, as well as a nail bar, hair salon, massage areas, and a spa lounge offering food and drink. Head to the Corinthia for some much needed R&R with a loved one on a chilly day this autumn.
