As travel restrictions ease, we’re all starting to think about our next holiday. And after a pretty intense year so far, the focus for many is on switching off, de-stressing, and really nurturing both the body and the mind.

We’ve put together a selection of properties that offer plenty of opportunities for mindfulness and relaxation - from yoga and meditation by the sea, to pampering in-house spa treatments - without compromising on luxury.
