So you partied hard, ate and drank far too much over the festive season! Brought 2018 in with a bang (and a good few gins!) Made and broke those New Year resolutions, but hey, feck it, you are only human!!
Forget those January blues and treat yourself to a weekend to chill out and to say hello to 2018… Make it a Guilt free, sleep filled, gin-fueled FUN start to the year ahead!
Are you wiped out, knackered or just plain fucked?
Yes? Well then… Join us at The elbowroom escape for our popular “Do Fuck All” weekend break.
Consider this. How tired are you these days? How often do you have the opportunity to do just nothing?
Would you fancy coming along to a weekend break in a stunning location where everything is literally done for you?
In other words, you do fuck all.
The weekend entails our chef serving you delicious food. And then….
Yes, there is a forest if you want to walk in it. Yes, there is a fuck load of mountains should you wish to climb them. Yes, there is a big room should you wish to roll about, do yoga or binge watch The Handmaids Tale/Breaking Bad/Mad Men/House of Cards. Yes, there is a hot tub should you wish to soak.
Yes, there are 5* hotel grade beds should you wish to just lie in them. Yes, there are hammocks should you wish to swing/read. Yes, there is a gin bar should you chose to get so wasted you start telling strangers you love them.
Yes, there will be a cool bunch of people (See the screening application questions below) that you can shoot the breeze with. Yes, Sue will be available to massage you if you fancy a rub.
But if you wish to do none of that and do fuck all. Then so be it.
