How to Reduce Stress: Stretch and Unwind at Rutland Hall Hotel

The secret to a healthy mind is a healthy body, and January is as good a time as any to start that journey. 

Exercise is linked to improved mood, reduced stress, and better cognitive function. It also stimulates the release of endorphins, which act as natural mood boosters, helping to reduce the risk of anxiety and depression.

New Year’s resolutions are notoriously hard to stick to, though, so don’t put too much pressure on yourself. 

Make small, manageable changes, and enjoy your time reconnecting with your body and helping yourself feel good again. 

To get started, get your heart rate pumping with a fun activity. You don’t need to sign up to the gym straight away, as this can feel overwhelming. 

Instead, come and explore our wide range of leisure opportunities here at Rutland Hall Hotel. 

Walk or cycle the perimeter of the lake, take part in fun water sports, or challenge a family member to a game of crazy golf on our grounds. 

You could also venture through our 70 acres of parkland, or take a dip in our family-friendly pool; whatever your journey to wellbeing looks like, we’ve got you covered; book your activities ahead of your stay!

Our Leisure club is open 7am – 7:45pm Monday to Friday, and 8am – 7:45pm Saturday and Sunday.

An active stay at Rutland Hall Hotel is the key to discovering how to reduce stress this Winter!

How to Reduce Stress: Bring Your Four-Legged Friend

At Rutland Hall Hotel, we understand that families often include furry friends; so, book one of our dog-friendly rooms, and bring your pooch to enjoy the family fun! 

Spending time with animals can help to boost mood and provide essential companionship. It can also encourage you to get moving and spend more time outdoors, so it’s certainly one of the best ways to reduce stress.

And, to help make bringing your pup as seamless as possible, we charge dogs at a rate of just £25 per night for hotel bedrooms, and £10 per night in the lodges, which includes a dog bed, toy and two dog bowls.

Feast in Blossoms Bar and Restaurant 

Good food is one of life’s simple pleasures — and is often said to be a ‘window to the soul’, or ‘the way to someone’s heart’.

At Blossoms, we believe that’s true. There’s little better than meeting family, friends, or even colleagues, for a scrumptious meal where you can unwind and indulge in excellent food (and wine!).

The restaurant, which boasts stunning decor and a self-playing piano, offers a relaxed atmosphere with a stylish, chic vibe, and has a selection of comfort foods, classic dishes, and sumptuous plates on the new winter menu, which use locally-sourced produce wherever possible.

Pad down to breakfast for a hearty full English, enjoy a light salad for lunch, or indulge in a succulent Sunday Roast with all the trimmings, accompanied by drinks served from Blossoms Bar.

If you’re searching for a lighter bite, sit back and replenish with afternoon tea, served between 12 noon and 5pm. 

Whichever dining option you choose, you can guarantee a delicious, relaxed occasion with excellent service to help you truly relax and release any stress. And, our set lunch menu offers brilliant value for money, helping ease that long wait for January’s pay day! Take a look at the menu; we’re offering 2 courses for £26, and 3 courses for £28.

So, if you want to know how to reduce stress, and are yearning for a winter escape that exudes relaxation, Rutland Hall Hotel awaits! 

Discover the perfect antidote to the winter blues by embracing our active leisure opportunities, spending quality time with your loved ones, and savouring delightful meals at Blossoms Bar and Restaurant.
