This can come in many forms including learning a new skill or participating in an activity that has long been on the bucket list.
Our cottage owners are now adding these types of experiences to their offering and have found that courses, activities and events are proving extremely popular with guests. At Handpicked Cottages we think these types of breaks will be the next big thing. Guests are wanting more than just a holiday and are keen to join self-improvement courses, and the addition of new skill set is an essential part of this.
Wellbeing courses of all types are available these include: Yoga, Heathy Eating, Good Diet Planning, Fitness, Dance and Exercise classes to name just a few.
Activity Breaks such as Archery, Shooting, Fly Fishing, Skiing, Mountain Climbing, Coasteering, Photography and Bird Watching are proving to be very popular.
Learning new skills can be so much fun and also highly therapeutic. Cookery & Bakery courses are very popular as are music, beauty, language and art classes.
Instead of returning from your next self-catering holiday saying you had a nice time what about saying I had a fantastic time and learned to play the guitar?
