A sense of well being - Relax & Restore at Knockinaam
Everyday life is about hustle and bustle and that can take its toll on your mind and well being, as we rush about our stressful lives. Eventually this begins to tell on our physical health so time to relax and restore is just what the doctor ordered.
The administering of ‘nature prescriptions’ is a recent initiative by some NHS health boards for patients suffering stress, mental illness, diabetes, heart disease and other conditions. To combat symptoms and restore well being, the ‘prescriptions’ offer suggestions of where to go for beach walks and rambling, while observing birds and wildlife, which has been recognised by medical experts as a vital part of patient treatment.
This can benefit all of us, whether we simply recognise that we need a break from it all or we are in a greater need for a restorative escape to re-balance our body and mind. That is why we at Knockinaam Lodge have created a 2-night break to help you restore your inner calm and relax as you enjoy our hospitality and the stunning outdoors provided by this secluded location, away from it all with private beach and 30 acres of land to peacefully roam.
The South West of Scotland has an abundance of wildlife and activities to enjoy the natural environment all year round. There’s deer watching in the autumn; barnacle geese and whooper swans in the winter; red kite and osprey in the spring and summer or how about seal spotting?
We are also blessed with a unique climate in South West Scotland, as the Gulf stream wafts in, keeping us warmer than other parts of the country. Our palm fringed west coast, to the secluded walled gardens further east offer beautiful places to visit and take in the flora and fauna.
Visiting one of the many beautiful gardens in Dumfries and Galloway is a relaxing and inspirational experience. Logan Botanic Garden is unrivalled as Scotland’s most exotic garden with a remarkable collection of unusual plants from the Southern Hemisphere; Castle Kennedy is world famous for rhododendrons; Threave Gardens at Castle Douglas is a magnificent space to explore; Ardwell has a magnificent display of daffodils as well as pond walks around this woodland garden and the gardens at Glenwhan have outstanding sea views.
So, with so much to see and do, as well as so much to not do and just 'be', you can relax, look out to sea or enjoy a short stroll as you unwind the Knockinaam way.
This 2-night break includes the enjoyment of dinner in our 3 AA Rosette restaurant, with much of the produce either from the hotel’s kitchen garden, foraged locally by our chefs from the beach and land surrounding Knockinaam and from the abundance of high-quality produce available on our doorstep.
When you book this break, we will provide you with a pack which includes information about nature walks and wildlife activities that can be enjoyed nearby to Knockinaam Lodge.
Luxury self catering by the sea. Short breaks available all year round. 20% discount for arrivals within 14 days.
