Benefits of mindful eating for wellbeing

Mindful eating encourages you to eat slowly and savour each bite, allowing your body to better digest and absorb nutrients. By paying attention to hunger and fullness cues, you’re less likely to overeat or consume foods that don’t serve your body’s needs. Here at Combermere Abbey our North Wing Butlers Stephan and Blair will prepare a delicious cooked breakfast sourced from local produce to start your day the right way. Be sure to savour each bite.

For years dogs have been cherished for their capacity to bring happiness and enhance mental wellbeing, which is why Combermere Abbey enthusiastically invites you to bring your beloved pets to our dog-friendly cottages. Research suggests that spending time with your canine companion can reduce stress, boost happiness, and offer valuable companionship.
