Kick-Starting Your New Year’s Resolutions in Sidmouth
We know we’re a little bit early, but there’s no time like the present when it comes to planning your New Year’s resolutions! Christmas is hectic and New Year itself is a blur (which could be something to do with the fizz…), so it’s only sensible that you start thinking about your plans for January.
We think a fabulous way to help you stay on the wagon when it comes to resolutions is by taking a trip away. After all, if you’re going to attempt to be virtuous in 2017 then you may as well treat yourself to a weekend getaway to get things started. Here’s how you can kick-start your year while enjoying a trip to Sidmouth.
At the top of so many resolution lists is always ‘getting fit’. Whether that means taking up a new hobby or simply getting your 10,000 steps in for the day, Sidmouth is a wonderful place to start your new healthy lifestyle. With miles and miles of coastal pathways to explore and plenty of cycle routes, there’s something for everyone. Sidmouth Harbour Hotel also offers exercise classes and a fabulous pool, making it the ideal place to stay if you’re looking for a January refresh.
You can still enjoy a delicious meal out if you’re looking to eat a little healthier in 2017. The Upper Deck restaurant offers seasonal and fresh produce, including plenty of seafood. The restaurant’s ad hoc menu often includes fresh fish, and the mixed fish grill is a lighter way to enjoy a fabulous feast. Accompany your fish with a side of vegetables and you’ll be satisfied as well as feeling very pleased with yourself for making such a health-conscious choice (and dessert won’t seem so naughty – you are on holiday, after all).
Have you vowed to learn a language or take up salsa lessons in 2017? Why not start something new in Sidmouth? How about horse riding? The East Devon Riding Academy offers riding and horsemanship tuition for both children and adults, making it a great way to spend time together as a family or to simply give something new a try. The academy caters for those just visiting on holiday, so to find out more, visit its website.
We think it’s fair to say that New Year’s resolutions don’t have to be something to dread! Combine them with a trip to the coast and you might even find yourself enjoying them. To kick-start your year, get in touch with the team at Sidmouth Harbour Hotel to book your January getaway.
