There's nothing like an imposing Georgian manor in the middle of a park, complete with winding canals, sweeping driveways and an abundance of marble and chandeliers, to make you forget that London is only two hours away.
A therapist talked to me at length prior to each of my four treatments, offering me a range of oils to smell and choose from.
First up: a lavender, rosemary and mint back treatment comprising an exfoliating scrub followed by a mud mask lathered and left to set. While the warm mixture hardened, the soles of my feet were stimulated with hot stones.
This blissful treatment was followed by a hot-stone massage, manicure and SuperActive Facial. The lymphatic drainage massage, using oils to increase circulation and rose quartz stones to even skin tone, left my skin looking radiant.
