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.

  • I’ve been trying to (really focusing more this time) to wake up and sleep with affirmations. It used to help me a lot in the past then somewhere along the way, I stopped for a while.
I’d love to read what’s yours!! Everyday, I try to read and write new ones so here goes mine for today and I hope it resonates with you 💕:

  • I am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!

  • Sunrise view from my room facing the Athenian Riviera from @fsathens from Arion side of the building which is more laidback.
I have to admit though, it’s good to be back home and back to a routine. I tend to pick up emotions from the people and environment around me, and from time to time, it’s good to be grounded. Thank you Four Seasons for a wonderful experience and congratulations on the opening! ❤️
  • It was 18 degrees at the most one morning, and the sun was shining. Jumped on a @fsathens boat and sailed to visit the Poseidon Temple and an afternoon lunch at hidden gem by the sea with the sweetest people. I love being on boats and grew very fond on them since I was very little. ❤️
  • I was lucky enough to have had 3 sunny days in Athens before the weather turned into beautiful rain. It was a great weekend celebrating @fsathens opening. This is one of the pools at sunset from Nafsika side with private cabanas on the sides. That’s my weekend, how was yours? ☀️
  • I landed in Athens couple of days ago to celebrate the opening of @fsathens - Four Seasons Hotel Astir Palace Hotel Athens is a luxury escape resting on a peninsula along the Athens Riviera, just 30-minutes from the historic city centre. 
I ALWAYS love coming back to Greece 🇬🇷
  • I’m caption-less this morning. Might be because my mind is either overloaded or too relaxed, does this happen to you? 😊 - but here is @joalimaldives from where I drone. Happy Thursday everyone!
  • Back in Dubai for 24 hours and summer has already begun here and there is no way I can manage to have Charlie look at the camera!! My summer plans are getting together and with a little inspiration from @theitalianwayuae we are adding Italy’s coast on our itinerary as well! #TheItalianWay
What are your summer plans?
  • Located on Muravandhoo island on the Raa Atoll in the northern Maldives, @joalimaldives celebrates the ‘Joie De Vivre’ ... the joy of living, the joy of everything ❤️
  • You’ve got to find that soul friend... You’ve got to find that person. I’ve always truly believed that. 
Those which answers to these questions—does our friendship feel easy? Am I better for knowing this person? Do they help me become closer to the person I ultimately want to be? Can we be quiet together for a long time?That's the person I want to be be forever friends with. That's my soul person. Do you have yours? 💫
  • I’ve traded my snow gear to flip flops! I’m always happy to be back at @joalimaldives and since the pre-opening, it has flourished so much and the island has come alive! I’m always impressed with the incredible work they do here in attempts to save the marine life, the co-operation they do for the local islands and the incredible staff that has become good friends of mine now! ❤️
How gorgeous is this overwater villa?
