Autumn at Galgorm | Things To Do

Autumn at Galgorm | Things To Do

23 August 2016

Ah Autumn! Arguably one of the more underrated seasons. Pumpkin Spiced Lattes make a welcome return, Halloween is just around the corner and the evenings draw in ever so earlier as we silently encroach upon the most wonderful time of the year (too soon?). The slight chill in the air harmonised with the satisfying crunch of the autumn leaves makes us yearn for outdoor adventures, and where better to explore the great outdoors than Galgorm Resort & Spa.

Be at one with nature

Riverside Bathing is something of a wonder, but don’t just take out word for it! An hour of contentment spent in your own private log fired hot tub is particularly therapeutic in the Autumn months. Perched perfectly on the banks of the river and complimented with Autumn’s kaleidoscope of colour, this definitely tops our list of Galgorm experiences not to be missed!

Fore!

If relaxing by the pool isn’t your thing, embrace nature in your own way with a set of clubs and practice your putting on our brand new 9 hole Pitch and Putt Golf Course. Up the ante and take a walk or jog along the river bank. Our concierge team would be delighted to provide you with a handy walking map of the Resort. 

Time For Tea

As Henry James once said, “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to Afternoon Tea”. Warm up with a soothing cup of tea in the beautiful surroundings of The Conservatory. We highly recommend Instant Karma, a delicious chai with hints of cinnamon, cardamon, turmeric and ginger. Paired with Autumn’s Afternoon Tea treats such as chocolate and praline macaroons and pear and pistachio tarts, you can be guaranteed an hour of indulgence. 

Twilight Relaxation

The beauty of the Thermal Village at Galgorm lies in our idyllic location that merges indoors with outdoors. As the evening draws in, be enveloped by the tranquility of nature with our Beltane Experience. Relax with company seated around the sunken fire before enjoying a dip in the 12 man hot tub allowing you to indulge senses with three of natures elements Fire, Air & Water.

Settle in with a Gin

We’re firm believers that Gin O’Clock needn’t be forgotten once the temperature dips. While we’re partial to a refreshing Gin & Tonic in the summer months, adding spices to your signature gin cocktail is all that’s needed to transition with the seasons. You can be sure to find a gin best suited to your individual tastes in our extensive gin library, just recently named Gin Bar of the Year!
