Half a world away

Find your solitude, reconnect with nature and roll out your yoga mat in one of these enchanting escapes

You don't need to travel the earth to find a bit of peace, magic and solitude – it's all right here in the UK. If you're in need of a break from the hectic pace of life, we hear you! We've identified two amazing spots in two of the country's most picturesque locations – from Skye in Scotland's north-west, to Cornwall in England's (sometimes!) sunny south-west – where you can meditate to your heart's content and reclaim the real, authentic you. Both have deck space outside to roll out your yoga mat too, perfect for a morning vinyasa flow or a chilled evening go slow.

Fika, Cornwall

Fika, in Swedish custom, is a break from activity during which people basically chill out and relax with others. If you're a Fika seeker then here's the place for you. Luxury escapism on the wild Cornish coast, Fika is the name of this oceanside retreat of dreams nestled on the rugged cliffs of Whitsand Bay. A clifftop sanctuary offering spectacular views over the rolling tides and a swoon-worthy Scandinavian style, it's perfect for some heavenly timeout. Fika is the epitome of its namesake, offering a space to enjoy the Swedish ritual of slowing down, taking a moment to relax in comfort with others and relish life's simplest pleasures together.

£1,438 for a long weekend or mid-week break.

Black Box Cabin, Isle of Skye

Uncover endless quietude and atmospheric scenery at this enchanting hideaway nestled in the Scottish wilderness. Carefully curated with contemporary interiors, this spellbinding retreat promises a world of modern luxury, far away from the worries of the world. Set in the valley of Glendale beside the magnificent Macleod's Table, this breath-taking corner of the British Isles, abundant with diverse wildlife and spectacular scenery, promises an ethereal escape designed to soothe the soul.

£1,438 for a long weekend or mid-week break.
