Why booking a soothing summer staycation makes superb sense

Published on 2022-03-01 / By Belinda Dixon

Chill-out, relax, recharge. Summer staycations are our chance to ditch the To Do list and watch stress fade away. But long journeys, crowded departure lounges and international uncertainty don’t usher in a Summer mood. So read on to discover an indulgent, stress-free summer staycation.


Summer staycation spa break? 

It’s your call - delayed flights, security queues, travel stress. Or luxuriating in utterly indulgent spa treatments in a state of complete calm. One of the easiest summer staycation mistakes to make is to think you have to travel hundreds of miles to have a great time. In fact some of the best vacations are within easy reach. These are the best spa breaks in Devon. Lincombe Hall Hotel’s £2M luxury spa is not only a first for Torbay, its treatments and facilities are at the very pinnacle of spa tech.

Embrace the calm 

Imagine your first day of your summer staycation with us. An afternoon arrival after a relatively short train ride or drive. After stowing your bags in your gorgeous room, it’s time to choose your treat. Perhaps floating free in Lincombe Hall Hotel’s leisure pool, a hot stone massage to make those muscle kinks melt away, or breathing your way to calm in our aromatherapy steam room. 


Dodge the stress

And as you’d expect from a first-rate summer staycation spa experience, Lincombe Hall’s superb facilities don’t end there. Feel your muscles relax as waves of warmth wash over you in our Scandinavian Sauna. Get the endorphins flowing in our Hydro Pool. Clear your mind in our Himalayan Salt Room. Chill out and get a cold therapy kick in our Ice Room. Or take a bucket shower or work out in our gym. The trick, one that Lincombe Hall Hotel performs so well, is to provide all these transformative experiences as part of your summer staycation.

Seasonal food

The hotel is the perfect place to really relax in after an exceptional meal at Lincombe Hall’s in-house dining spaces. Expect super-fresh, local, seasonal ingredients, imaginative treatments and everything from gourmet breakfasts, afternoon teas, brasserie dining and diverse restaurant cuisine. Dishes span hogs pudding and avocado salsa for breakfast, Brixham (Torbay) cod n’ chips for lunch, and a trio of pork or beetroot and goat’s cheese risotto for supper.


Discover Devon

Before flying half way around the world, it’s always worth asking just how much fun lies within easy reach with a summer staycation. And how much simpler it can be to get to. The answer to that question always gives Torquay, in south Devon, top marks. This compact area boasts 22 miles of shore, taking in dramatic cliffs, sandy beaches, secluded coves and cracking coastal walks. There’s a wealth of exciting things to do in Torquay. From the watersports at Oddicombe Beach, via the joyfully eccentric Babbacombe Cliff Railway to the bird-rich cliffs of Berry Head and the idyllic charm of Cockington Country Park. All are just a few miles from Lincombe Hall Hotel.


Book your summer staycation

So - by now the idea of a stress-free break that’s fairly close to home in Torquay’s Lincombe Hall Hotel is sounding appealing. Soothe away your stress in a close-to-home, state of the art spa. Rest, regroup and recharge, and explore a delightful shore!
