Outdoor Wellness at the Glass House
Welcome to our world of wellness. A space that draws on the restorative power of the outdoors, with fresh, clean air and rolling green fields, offering feelings of expansive freedom and well being.
It's an inspiring place where like-minds gather. Our outdoor Geodesic Dome hosts talks, midday Mindfulness classes, Work-Ins, and much more.
The Glass House wellness team leads bootcamp-style workouts under the sun for quick results. But if you prefer a more relaxed approach to well being, you can dine al fresco and lounge in the sunshine. Or find your own rhythm between the natural swimming pool and the Finnish sauna. Whatever activity you choose now is the time to go outdoors at the Glass House!
Our natural swimming pond complements our beautiful surroundings and nature's playground perfectly. The pond water is cleaned naturally, without need of harmful chemicals, so it is soft on your skin, and kinder for wildlife.
Experience a wild swim as though in a freshwater river or lake, but without the muddy feet.
Both refreshing for an idle dip on a summer's day, and invigorating in cooler weather. The pond will certainly give you a dose of feel-good endorphins that will long outlast your swim. Afterwards, stretch out on a nearby sun lounger or unwind in the wooden sauna.
Reconnect with nature in our naturally-heated Finnish sauna. Stirring something deep inside us, a sauna's appeal is like gazing into a roaring fire. The gentle heat and the warm scent of wood panels invoke an ancient human feeling of well being.
Your muscles are gently coaxed into relaxation, while you breathe deep and let go of stress. It is the perfect way to let go of tensions you've carried, even unconsciously.
The experience is completed by beautiful views of the Essex countryside. And the first lungful of crisp country air as you step out of the Finnish sauna is hard to beat.
The Dome is our haven for inspiring talks and classes. It's the home of our new Midday Mindfulness sessions, which help you reset and refocus during the day's lull.
You'll also find our innovative Work-Ins, a workout with a difference, taking place inside the Dome whatever the weather. These classes are included in your overnight stay or day spa charge, and are also open to anyone wanting to attend a one-off class.
We also offer Life Coaching Sessions, Mind and Meditation sessions and Wellness Coaching for an additional charge.
At The Glass House we know the benefits of spending time outdoors. We've endeavoured to provide you with all you'll need to make your time indoors or outdoors with us a wonderful wellness experience.
Begin your day with a healthy breakfast in our al fresco dining area because food always tastes better outside. Set yourself up for the day to enjoy an outside Bootcamp session later.
Enjoy the freedom of the outdoors by taking out one of our hybrid bikes. Explore the local area and venture out into the beautiful countryside that surrounds us. Bikes, helmets and route suggestions are available from reception, please go to the front desk and our team can assist you.
After a fulfilling day, the sun loungers are the perfect spot to sip a smoothie or wile away a summer's afternoon. As the sun goes down it's time for la dolce vita. Our popular Sunset evenings bring a touch of the Med to the Essex countryside. Unwind with a herbal blend against the pink and gold skies of British summertime, as the sun sets over the fields.
