By the time Christmas and New Year are over, according to a recent survey, the average Brit will have done 250 miles of travelling, eaten five turkey-based dinners, gone to three parties, and dealt with at least two family arguments.
Whether or not this is statistically true, it does feel about right. In that spirit, may we add a few more:
• spent two days designing and executing the perfect Christmas decorative scheme, only to have it bagged and back in the loft in two hours flat last Friday;
• filled up two sacks with unwanted presents for the charity shop, which have yet to make it past the front door;
• binned our own body weight in excess food, making us feel cross, guilty and a bit sad all at the same time.
So what do mind and body now need to set them back on the right track for 2017? A duvet day at the Green House Hotel, that’s what.
The essential ingredients of the perfect duvet day are hard to pin down. Obviously a duvet, though how much time you choose to spend under it should be completely up to you. Indeed, you may not even want to pass all of your ‘duvet day’ indoors. The point, the whole point, and nothing but the point of a duvet day, in our humble opinion, is that it is duty-free and yours to spend exactly as you want. Of course, it should be a day when you would normally be doing something for someone else – be it paid or unpaid. It should ideally be snatched at short notice from the jaws of your crammed and unrelenting calendar. And most important of all, it should be totally and utterly guilt-free.
So why not find yourself a spare weekday and book yourself a decadent yet guilt-free duvet day package at The Green House Hotel, Bournemouth’s most luxurious boutique hotel and also, according to the experts, the most excellent green hotel in Britain. We believe in totally spoiling our guests without spoiling anything else – least of all the planet. So you can give your conscience a rest along with everything else.
Here’s how it will go. Check in to your luxurious room full of eco-chic goodies. The basics: all our double rooms have as standard a King size bed (5ft), 32” LED flat screen TV, Bose sound dock, and – of course – luxurious goose down duvets and crisp white organic bed linen. The bathrooms have natural stone basins, walk in showers and exclusive Temple Spa toiletries range. Made in the UK, without the use of Parabens or Phosphates, these luxurious products smell delicious, and are kind to your skin and the environment.
Upgrade to a master bedroom and you will have all that plus a stunning reclaimed Victorian roll top bath within the bedroom, as well as a super-king 6 foot bed perfect for serious lolling.
And then? The choice is yours. Relax in the bar with the papers, take a brisk walk along Bournemouth’s sandy beach or choose from our extensive DVD library and get yourself totally togged up. Your one night stay includes breakfast and the choice of three courses from the seasonal A la Carte Menu at Arbor, the Green House Hotel’s two- AA rosette restaurant.
Prices start at £140 per room for a standard double room Sunday to Friday and from £165 per room for a standard double room on Saturdays during January. Call us on 01202 498900 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, read more on the Green House Hotel’s New Year packages here.
