Be Kind to Yourself in 2020

New Year, new resolutions to break. Let’s see if we can keep just one this year – to look after ourselves more.
How many times do you say that you haven’t had time to go for a run or that you will to the gym tomorrow? Taking a little time out for yourself each day is important for your wellbeing. Whether it’s to do some physical activity or just to close the door and enjoy a nice warm bath. Why shouldn’t you enjoy some me-time?
With our lives getting busier, self-care is something that none of us cannot afford to pay attention to. So, whether you plan to close the door to the world and turn your phone on to silent for a little while or plan a day away a month to escape, we’re here to help.

A Weekly Treat
Why not swap the cleaning one evening for a hot soak in the bath? Pour in a little of that gorgeous bubble bath you were bought for Christmas, pick up the book that you have been meaning to read for ages, close the bathroom door and relax…. A little relaxation before bedtime helps you tune out and calms the mind which in turn will encourage a better night’s sleep.

Little and Often
Not having time for yourself is not how it should be, but we all try to fit as much as possible into our daily lives. Work-life balance, school run, cleaning, getting the dinner ready and packing up lunches… the list is endless and before you know it, it’s time for bed and repeat tomorrow. STOP. Breathe and take a minute. When was the last time you did something just for you? Here’s your chance. Book yourself a treatment at Eden. You don’t have to be a day guest to enjoy a little pampering and it’s something that you can enjoy on your way home from work. We offer a wide range of therapies to suit all your pampering needs and they’re perfect for helping to release tension, relax and unwind.

A Day to Escape
Get your diary out and make a date for me-time. Whether it’s once a month or once a quarter, it’s good for the soul to escape the norm and great for recharging the batteries. Whether you choose a day at a spa, an adventure day or a day of retail therapy, it should all be about you.

Close your eyes, breathe deep and refocus.

A Message from our CEO

The health and wellbeing of our guests, members and employees is and always has been, at the heart of our business. As a result of the Prime Minister’s announcement on 20th March, it with deep sadness that we have taken the decision to close Eden Hall and Hoar Cross Hall until further notice. Though we genuinely hope to be welcoming you back sooner, rather than later we will closely monitor government updates to ensure we are keeping our team members, customers and members safe.

In these unprecedented times, we have been genuinely touched by the understanding and support shown by our guests, members and staff alike. We thank you for your words and acts of kindness that have given much needed hope and positivity throughout these difficult weeks. Our main priority has always been our loyal customers, especially since temporarily closing the doors of our beautiful venues, putting your experience with us on hold.

If you have an existing booking with us, please don’t worry, we’ll be in touch to help as soon as possible.
If you have one of our gift cards with an expiry date before 30th June 2020, you do not need to do anything, we have automatically extended these until 31st December 2020.

We are also focusing on the wellbeing of our valuable team members, who are currently unable to work due to recent government restrictions. Our employees are a key focus for us at this time, as we hope you understand. Consequently, we are doing all we can to ensure a swift return and to reassure and stabilise their situation in the meantime.

For those of you who may still need to contact us, we have put in place a small dedicated team to respond to all enquiries. Please bear with us if our response isn’t as speedy as normal, we really are trying our best and will contact you as soon as we are able to.

But for now, on behalf of all of us at Barons Eden, I would like to wish you and your family the best health and to stay safe.
