Indulge yourself with some relaxing pampering on a Wales Cottage Holiday

Written by Ginnie James on

Do you ever have a great holiday but are then left with the feeling of needing another to get over it?! I must admit that I often feel like that as we try to cram in as much as possible into our holidays and then of course you are straight back into the realities of work and school and you haven’t really had time for that well-earned rest you promised yourself.

Well, we have come across a company that makes it their business to ensure that, when you are away on holiday, you can easily make time for some proper relaxation and pampering, even if it’s just for an hour. It’s such a good idea that I want to book a cottage just to give it a go! My Personal Sanctuary specialise in bringing a luxury, organic and indulgent spa service to holidaymakers staying in self-catering accommodation. Their aim is to envelope you with serenity and absolute relaxation from the moment they arrive at your door.

Doesn’t it just sound wonderful? A wide range of treatments and products are on offer so whatever your age or skin type there will be something for you and it is obvious a lot of thought has gone into their package ideas. With the Rest & Unwind package you can choose from 1 hour up to 5 hours and then decide which of the many treatments, including facials, massages and specific hand or feet therapies, you would like to fill your time. I quite like the idea of teaming the 30 minute Top to Toe 30 minute body scrub with the 30 minute De-Stress Scalp, Face and Neck massage. Another package I think is a fantastic idea is the ‘Mummy-to-be & Mate’ – A 2 hour organic body treatment with face and scalp massage tailored to the stage of the pregnancy and then your partner or friend will receive an hour of pampering. We all know that expecting a baby can be a stressful time for all involved and just a little bit of rejuvenating time-out could go a long way in making this a better time for everybody. Younger members of the family needn’t feel left out either as the little ones can enjoy a hand or feet file and polish, with teenagers from 15 years being offered a 20 minute fresh facial or massage.

My Personal Sanctuary really does seem to have thought of it all, especially as, if you fill in the pre-treatment questionnaire, the experienced therapists can tailor your package to your requirements right down to the background music and massage pressure to make sure your experience is nothing but fulfilling. So, whether you are planning a romantic retreat, a weekend catch up with friends or a family get away, the offerings of My Personal Sanctuary is something well-worth considering to add that extra touch of luxury to your holiday. And I know I for one would love to receive a surprise visit from a personal therapist as a birthday gift, an appreciative gesture from my loving husband (hint hint!) or even just as a treat to myself. Fingers crossed!
