UK Vegan Retreats
With the Greggs Vegan Steak Bake, the Vegan KFC Burger and plenty of other vegan dishes entering the leading takeaway restaurants and top supermarkets; it is clear that veganism is playing a huge part in 2020 - and why shouldn’t it be?
Reports suggest that being vegan is better for your health, with vegans being less likely to develop things like high blood pressure (peta.org). Researchers at the University of Oxford also reported that by cutting out meat and dairy products from your diet, you could reduce your carbon footprint from food by up to 75%!
Now of course, veganism is not for all of us and it would be a huge ask to change a lifetime worth of eating habits in a day. However, if you want to give it a try and see what a vegan lifestyle is like, we have found some incredible UK vegan retreats.
Hilton London Bankside Hotel
Proud to call itself the world’s first-ever vegan hotel suite, the Hilton’s London Bankside hotel alongside The Vegan Society created a room that uses 100% animal friendly materials. With pineapple-leaf desk chairs, soft pillows made from buckwheat husks and a vegan-filled menu – this is a real guilt free getaway.
Bay Tree House
Located in Hastings, East Sussex, the award-winning vegan B&B serves an organic continental breakfast within its Victorian Villa. This getaway gives you a true taste of the vegan lifestyle and lets you escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
Situated in an area of outstanding beauty, Malvern Worcestershire, the Our Lizzy B&B offers a whole host of vegan dishes on its lavish menu.
