What appears so wonderfully enticing about Lifehouse is that even if the ample array of treatments is more than enough to get you planning your mini-escape, the gardens hold a significance of their own in the search for peace. That, as well as facilities including a library, restaurant and hair salon, most definitely has me sold.
The spa at Hanbury Manor, tucked away in a luxurious corner of Ware, is the perfect addition to the hotel and country club. With the promise of the use of top-notch products and expert service to match, the availability of 100 different treatments and the opportunity to relax in style after a spot of golf, Hanbury could hardly be ignored. Show me the Jacuzzi, please!
Set in the exclusive, historic market town of St Albans, The Sopwell House Spa depicts Georgian eloquence and attractive countryside warmth. The offering of the top range of Clarins products shows a dedication to prestige, and the notable Mother-To-Be treatment, personalised to suit different stages of pregnancy, is the perfect way to celebrate motherhood.
It would not do to have a feature on spas without the inclusion of Champneys, a name utterly synonymous with world-class deliciousness, and with two resorts close by there’s all the more reason to give them some serious thought... Rothschild Mansion, home to the Tring resort, Hertfordshire, boasts a long-established Englishness with rooms so highly furnished that you would be forgiven for thinking you had stepped into a lavish period drama. With exclusive and intriguing treatments such as kriotherapy, outdoor delights such as horse riding, and the country’s leading luxury residential medical centre an addition to the overall premier experience, this resort presents professionalism at its greatest.
Henlow Grange, home to the Henlow resort, Bedfordshire, was seemingly always meant to be a place of peace, Cistercian Monks having been former residents. Tranquillity, a running theme at the Grange, is echoed by the serenity and comfort of the traditional and contemporary accommodation, the presence of the River Hiz close by, and the cosy situation of the house amid acres of parkland.
