With my lunch booked for 12.30pm, I swiftly finished my toast, headed to the changing rooms and got ready for my day of self care. Once ready I popped down to find a lounger, to errr, lounge on, poolside.
There actually wasn’t a free one (they have been spaced out and limited due to covid) so I popped into the hydrotherapy area in the orangery and nabbed myself a tiled lounger where I stayed – book in hand – for at least an hour. It was so peaceful and I truly felt like the most relaxed version of myself since 2020 began.
Feeling like I should indulge further, I hopped into the hydropools and got water pummeled on me from every angle possible. Once the outdoor jacuzzi was free (one family/bubble allowed in at one time) I took my book out there and relaxed there too. My only concern being that I didn’t get any splashes on the pages. Oh, for that to be your only worry – you know you’re relaxed!
There’s something so mellowing about a cold day and sinking yourself into a warm whirlpool to really make you appreciate the warming bubbles…and the stunning grounds the spa is set in.
