Ellea is the co-founder of the wonderful botanical bath and body brand, 100 Acres. 100 Acres are in love with the glorious English outdoors. The rolling wildflower meadows, the rambling country lanes, the luscious English gardens bursting with herbs, flowers and fresh fruits.
As self-proclaimed experts on all things English countryside here are the best countryside escape stays 100 Acres style, as recommended by Ellea...
The ultimate luxury escape? For us, in Springtime especially, this has to be Callow Hall Wildhive. Stay in one of their treehouses (big enough for the whole family) or one of their gorgeous cosy ‘hives’ (for two), this property is situated in the undulating, green hills of the Peak District. Surrounded by wildflower meadows, nature trails (e-bikes are available for any daytime adventures) and complete with a beautiful wellness centre for a range of relaxing 100 Acres massage treatments, there aren’t many more luxurious Spring escapes in the UK than Callow Hall.
The cool countryside escape? Visit cult Cotswold favourite, The Double Red Duke. Newly opened in 2021, this property perfectly balances incredible food, cool ambience and even cooler interiors. Positioned in the sublime Oxfordshire Cotswolds and complimented by a gorgeous converted shepherds hut treatment room with 100 Acres massages, The Double Red Duke is an escape she will treasure for many years to come.
The romantic, whimsical escape? If private properties are more your thing, look no further than Unique Home Stays – specifically, the heavenly Romany. Just looking at this cottage is relaxing. With a rolltop bath in the bedroom and surrounded by a luscious green oasis, this is a soul-soothing Springtime escape at it’s very finest. A night or two here would be an utterly divine gift for the one who deserves it most.
As part of our collaboration with 100 Acres, we are delighted to offer a unique gift that will be available for this week only.
