British Retreats

With Summer upon us there has never been a better time to explore the little island we call home. Sarah Haran Accessories was created with travel in mind and our handcrafted handbags make the perfect mini-break companions. 

Here are some of our favourite British retreats to get you started…

Why not indulge yourself this summer and book a spa weekend. There are so many beautiful spas across the UK that you really are spoiled for choice. One of our favourites has to be the The Spa at The Gleneagles Hotel, Perthshire.

The Gleneagles hotel has everything you want from a five-star luxury Scottish hotel break, from an extensive menu of traditional therapies in the award-winning spa to a two Michelin star restaurant.


The Daisy Tote blends functionality with finesse and is the perfect size for packing all of your essentials for a spa weekend. 

The spacious suede-lined interior is also compatible with both the Sarah Haran Glasses Case and the Lupin Pouch – excellent options for added storage. 

Looking for a bit of romance? We have the perfect summer break for you and your partner. The Cotswolds has been named one of the most romantic places to take a break, and it is not surprising to see why. 

The beautiful Cotswolds are notorious for romantic breaks with an array of luxurious romantic hotels, cosy bed and breakfasts and secluded cottages to choose from. The area is also famous for their award winning bars and restaurants.

Take a romantic stroll and marvel at the breath taking views on over 500km of foot paths! Or enjoy some retail therapy in the picturesque lanes of Cirencester. There is something to suit all types of couple.


Using 100% Smooth Spanish leather, this handcrafted saddlebag is great for a weekend of strolling and exploring.

The Iris is a hard-wearing, stylish staple, designed to add an element of sophistication to any outfit. The attached Ivy pocket clutch bag can be used to store smaller items such as make-up, or removed and used as a stand-alone clutch for a romantic date night. 

When it comes to the ultimate city break, you can’t beat Edinburgh. It truly has something for everyone! From the castle and other historic landmarks to the hottest bars and best boutiques. We rate Edinburgh as one of the greatest cities in the world!

If you want to do the Edinburgh city break right, then you need to stay at The Balmoral. One of Edinburgh’s oldest and most luxurious hotels. Afternoon tea in the Palm Court is a must!

Take a stroll up the Royal Mile to the castle or climb the famous Arthur’s Seat for beautiful views of the city. If you’re not too tired after all that, then head to George Street in the evening to sample an array of delicious cocktails in the city’s best bars.


The Dahlia Tote is beautiful and timeless, handcrafted in premium leather. For added versatility, the front pocket can be easily removed and used in it's own right as a separate cross body, shoulder or clutch bag.

Update your tote style by pulling of the front pocket and adding an Ivy. Simply secure it on to the press studs on the front of the tote and feed the tassel back through the eyelet. Why not invest in a variety of Ivy bags or tassel T-Bars to update your Dahlia Tote style in an instant?
