Luxury solo holidays

Eat, stay, love. With a candlelit table set for one, the television all to yourself, and no one to share the eiderdown with but the dog, luxury solo holidays in the UK are all about dancing to the beat of your own drum.

As Freya Stark once said, "to awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations." There's no travel quite like luxury solo travel. We love romantic getaways and big group gatherings as much as the next person, but we also know that inserting a little solitude into the schedule is the tried-and-true way to take well-being off the back burner. From a restorative stay by the sea to a mindful long-let where you can pen the beginning chapters of your novel, these coastal boltholes and remote wilderness retreats wait for you with roaring fires and luxury hampers.

Here are homes with main character energy; where protagonists sip wine on seaward terraces and twirl themselves around the kitchen table. For some, luxury solo holidays in the UK are about finding the mental (and physical) space to begin a creative project. For others, reading glossy magazines in the hot tub, ambling from coffee shop to pizzerias, and poking about in antiques shops is all that's on the itinerary. From surf retreats in Cornwall's quietest bays to adventures with your dog far out in the Hebrides; here's to choosing for you, and you alone.
