3 Unique Hideaways in the UKLike2

It’s funny how we always run away from our real age as we grow older. I know I have. It’s taking me a long time to realize though that age has given me what I was looking for my entire life – it has given me me . It has provided time and experience and failures and triumphs and time-tested friends who have helped me step into the shape that was waiting for me. I don’t fit into me right now perfectly yet, but I am trying. Sure, there are days where I fail and my head wonders…but then, it stabilizes pretty fast, you solve it.

The same goes for travel. As I mature and grow, so do my destinations.  It seems like everyone is making a bucket list to cross off but I can’t seem to keep up with my list from growing year after year. Seems I’m adding more rather than crossing off!  Here are few of my favorite unique hideaways…that I know of at least.

 

1. THE CHAPEL ON CLOUD ISLAND – Scotland

For a far-flung romantic getaway, this luxury chapel conversion on the Isle of Skye makes an ideal furlough. Complete with Scandi-style sauna and spa bath overlooking Loch Harport and the soaring mountains beyond, The Chapel on Cloud Island offers a unique self-catering experience like no other in Scotland. En suite shower room with walk-in shower and WC, large bathroom with sauna and spa bath and even a bbq! I can live here forever.

2. THE EDGE – England

Set in a cliff top location with a bird’s eye view of Whitsand Bay and the surrounding coast, The Edge is the perfect luxury self-catering beach hut for honeymoons with a difference. A modern take on a traditional Cornish beach hut, there’s a fresh flavour to the luxury interiors of this eco-friendly cedar-clad creation. With a floor-to-ceiling picture window offering views from your luxurious pillow, the only concern will be who’s on tea-making duty! It has a fully-equipped kitchen, TV/DVD player and radio/CD player/iPod dock Internet & Communications:Wi-Fi internet, An electric Weber BBQ. The setting of The Edge is a real wildlife haven, look out for cormorants, kestrels, peregrine falcons and dolphins.

3. THE BEACH HUT – England

First built in the 1920s for use as a genteel tearoom, The Beach Hut is the ultimate coastal hideaway. This unique beach shack in North Cornwall occupies an enviable nook on the edge of a stunning coastal 52 acre estate, making it an idyllic location to inspire writers, artists and lovers alike. By day, there are several golf courses, coastal walks and woodland rambles for explorers of any ability. As night falls, lovebirds can enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner alongside the toasty woodburner; or snuggle up under a blanket on the rocking chair outside to stargaze from the veranda.

  • Soneva Fushi is an Island that celebrates the natural environment. The first sustainable luxury hotel in Maldives since 1995, creating a positive impact on Baa Atoll and the neighboring islands. I was proud and happy to be part of the island and learn so much more about sustainability travel. @discoversoneva
  • Hello winter in Dubai. Back here for a couple of days and rushing through the week before I take off again. I was fortunate enough to have met and worked with @zeebalife who I quickly ‘clicked’ with the moment we started chatting earlier this year. I don’t ‘click’ very easily I must admit... and I’m very much in my own bubble... and that’s ok... so when I do, I hang on to them because it just works without any effort. And it’s the best kind of friendship. Happy Sunday! #MyDubai
  • Just because she let go... doesn’t mean she wanted to... 💫
  • Let’s take a ride to the spa together 🌴 @fsmaldives
  • Droning isn’t always easy in Maldives especially when you see seaplanes crossing and guest worrying about their full right privacy. But at sunrise, when everyone is still asleep, and when the jets are no where close by, you can always fly really quick and capture the beauty of the island - ❤️🌴 @fsmaldives
  • I am drawn to your imperfections. I am drawn to shared interests and hobbies in people. I am drawn to the light in your eyes when you talk about something you love. I am drawn to your success and to your failures and most of all your challenges. I am drawn to every non-perfect side of you, because otherwise, everything will be lifeless.
  • How long can you stay in Maldives? For me, I think I can do about two weeks and never get bored, even on rainy days! @fsmaldives
  • From where she drones from @fsmaldives Who said a 5 year old couldn’t use a drone haven’t met Chloè 😊
  • Sometimes, unexpected friendships are the best 💫 - Sunny, @saltysun__  the surf manager at @discoversoneva has started a sustainability surfing programme - one of its kind in Maldives. So when she told me let’s go out at sea in the pouring rain with crazy winds, I just knew we would be friends instantly! I can’t begin to describe how much I adore the sea and what it means to me. I’m in my element. ❤️
  • A wish you were here kind of moment 😊
@discoversoneva
  • Touchdown back to my favorite place... Maldives. 
Getting involved in our ocean conservation efforts by the marine biologist at @discoversoneva and the sustainability programme they are working on, for example, the Soneva Ocean Stewards (SOS) programme has taught hundreds of children how to swim and encourages the local community to appreciate the precious marine ecosystem surrounding them.
  • The year is almost over - flew by so quick at times and times it passed too slow!! This was shot in January early this year. I have a good feeling about 2018 despite 2017 being a little challenging. What are your Christmas plans? I’m spending it in Lebanon with family and friends, what about you?
