Feed the mind, body and soul with Rick Stein’s new ‘Ramble & Recharge’ winter escape, inviting guests to start the New Year on the right foot and reap the benefits of the Cornish coastline. Available now, reconnect with nature via scenic walking trails and enjoy the best of British seafood – all while staying in beautifully appointed rooms, including Rick Stein’s St Petroc’s Bistro, St Edmund’s House and The Seafood Restaurant.

Nature has long been known to have a calming and rejuvenating effect, and higher levels of oxygen in fresh clean coastal air can profoundly affect sleep quality. Studies show spending time by the coast supports physical activity, increases social contact, reduces stress and improves mental health – nearly 80% of people in a recent survey* felt more positive after walking the coast, with three quarters feeling less stressed and 57% able to sleep better.

The ‘Ramble & Recharge package makes the most of nature in its purist form, helps to cultivate inner peace and provides a welcoming escape from the stresses of everyday life. Enjoy a hearty breakfast each morning, before heading out to explore one of three detailed walking routes mapped out in Stein’s trail guide, which features insights into the benefits of walking the coast, including tips on mindful breathing and walking meditation. The walks are suitable for gentle rambles or more ambitious hikes, ranging from 3 miles / 1hr 30 minutes along Padstow circular walk via Hawkers cove, to 7 miles / 3 hours heading back to Padstow via Crugmeer, Trevone and Stepper Point.

Of course, a Rick Stein stay wouldn’t be complete without a feast of the finest Cornish seafood, so guests can enjoy a well-deserved warming three-course lunch from the set menu at St Petroc’s Bistro in Padstow, as well as a three-course dinner from the A La Carte menu at the renowned The Seafood Restaurant. 

Afterwards, head back to a beautiful coastal-chic cosy double or twin room, complete with high-thread-count sheets, soft furnishings and thoughtful amenities, including a reed diffuser to promote relaxation through aromatherapy. Unwind while listening to a soothing playlist put together by Jill and Kate Stein and take home a Jill Stein scented candle (plus the reed diffuser) worth £39.95.

Available from now until 28th March 2024, the Ramble & Recharge package starts from £500**  for two people for a two-night stay, inclusive of breakfast both mornings plus one lunch and one dinner. For bookings in January, guests will also receive a complimentary bottle of Stein’s family favourite, Veuve Clicquot Champagne. To book, head to www.rickstein.com/ramble-and-recharge.
