Escape the city with a spa day at this luxurious Jacobean retreat
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a fully-appointed country pile just a short commute from London, where you can be pampered and taken care of whenever you need it the most?
Well, you might have to share it with a few other guests, but Hanbury Manor Spa in Hertfordshire will never fail to leave you feeling like an honorary aristocrat.
Just a stone’s throw from Welwyn Garden City, and a mere 90 minutes from London by train, the stunning Jacobean manor is perfectly located for a spur-of-the-moment trip, or a weekend break from the city.
A stunning selection of facials by luxury brands Carita and Decléor mean that everyone is catered for – whether you want to calm irritated or sensitive skin (Harmonie Calm Facial), tighten sagging skin (Sculpting Gold Perfection Facial), or just enjoy some good old fashioned pampering (Aromatherapy Discovery Facial).
There is even an exclusive Decléor facial which is has been specifically tailored for men (Intensive Classic Face Treatment), and includes deep cleansing, exfoliation and a relaxing back diagnostic massage.
For full-body relaxation, choose from an impressive list of aromatic body wraps – from Anti-Fatigue Citrus Energy Boost, to the Vanilla and Ylang Ylang Relaxing Hydration.
The Hanbury Manor spa is open late most days, so you can schedule your treatments early in the day, then lounge about in the whirlpool or steam room all afternoon before treating yourself to a nightcap at the Oak Hall & Cocktail Bar.
Or spend an active day in the great outdoors, playing golf on the estate’s private course or simply exploring the 200 acres of private gardens, forests and lakes.
In the evening, book the Hanbury Signature Total Body Experience, which includes a rejuvenating exfoliating treatment and deep tissue massage. You will go to sleep feeling rested and relaxed, and ready for whatever the following week may bring.
