Watergate Bay, a barefoot-chic hotel in North Cornwall, is one of the UK’s much-loved gems. Once you discover it, you’ll be hard-pressed to find somewhere else equally as charming and you’ll no doubt keep on going back for more. To recreate its chilled vibe at home – and ideal to ‘fill in the spaces’ between holidays – the hotel has just launched a range of bath and body products.
The new botanical Elements collection of eight bath, body and home gems has been designed in partnership with a team of natural perfumers. The aim? To capture the character and Cornish experience of Watergate Bay. Think: fresh air, salty ocean notes and the natural scents of the Great British countryside.
Set on a spectacular surfing beach (you’ll also find Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant in the same spot), Watergate Bay offers a chilled, cool vibe across its eateries, family-friendly rooms and sandy-floored spaces. The hotel also offers a beach-house style Swim Club set beneath the hubbub of Watergate Bay Hotel’s Living Space. Here, guests can jump into a 25-metre swimming pool, have a spa treatment or just take in the ocean views from the beach sitting room, and café.
This has all been captured in the all-white products, adorned with whimsical illustrations by artist Emily Hamilton, a surfer based in the West Country. As well as the sweet, black-and-white drawings of surfers set by the sea, the products also contains ingredients from sustainable sources and are all made in England.
Shown here is the Hand Wash, Hand Cream and Candle, all of which offer an invigorating and uplifting effect and emulate the carefree spirit of the surfing lifestyle.
The Candle, £24, uses natural wax and pure essential oils of mandarin and mint for a gorgeous fresh scent – light it at home and it is like a gasp of fresh air, immediately transporting you to an idyllic spot by the coast.
The Hand Wash, £17, scented with grapefruit and lime, and Hand Cream, £18, with chamomile and frankincense are the perfect pampering duo leaving hands velvety smooth and subtly scented all day long.
For a complete head-to-toe treat, the Elements range also includes a Body Wash, Massage Oil, Salt Scrub, Shampoo and Conditioner Duo – it’s perfect for a home by the sea feel.
