Winter-Weary Skin Saviours

Hello, 2021! We’ve been waiting for you…


As we wave a not-so-fond farewell to the year that was 2020, the forecast of brighter days and even brighter skin is very much on the horizon. 2020 was the year of staying indoors, wearing masks and more than likely eating and possibly drinking a little more than usual, all of which have had an impact on our skin, leaving our complexion looking and feeling a little lacklustre. Common problem winter skin concerns have been exacerbated to include dehydration, acne, sensitivity and more.

Galgorm Unveils New Cottage Collective Accommodation

Commanding an enviable position on the beautiful Causeway coastal route and within lush countryside, is the prestigious Northern Irish property of Galgorm Spa & Golf Resort. During Spring 2019, the world-class hotel will unveil its new country cottage accommodation offering.

Guests to Galgorm will now have the option of staying within a collection of 17 individual country cottages within the stunning parkland estate. Each is set within its own pretty garden location, boasting rural countryside views and all closely linked to the picturesque River Maine. This new group-friendly accommodation offering, due to launch during late April, will offer guests access to all the high-end amenities of the world class estate, but within a more secluded, private setting.

Each cottage has been designed to be contemporary yet comfortable, boasting spacious open plan living areas, which include a fully equipped kitchen, lounge and dining space, perfect for modern day R&R.
The bathrooms are luxe and stocked with spa products, each with bath/shower combined. The bedrooms within The Cottage Collective are luxurious and benefit from full housekeeping attention.

Set within a beguiling natural space, relax and stay with friends and family and even your dog and explore pleasant riverside and woodland walks, straight from your own front door. Or if on business, catch up with work within a peaceful and secluded location.

Seven – 2-bedroom cottages (with either 2 double beds or 4 single beds) maximum of four adults.

One – 3-bedroom cottage (with either 3 double beds or 6 single beds) maximum of six adults.

These country cottages are in addition to the existing log cabins which line the riverside.

Red Oaks, set within its own grounds, is a further exclusive-use option, ideal for larger parties up to twelve guests. An original building, it has been completely refurbished and now boasts a most opulent stay with a spacious and modern kitchen and dining room, for family or group entertaining.
