I have been to a couple of spa's before but I have never felt very comfortable or been overly impressed, so I was a bit dubious before stepping foot in to Imagine Spa.

The first thing that struck me as I drove in to the car park was how secluded the spa was, in the middle of the countryside with a horse paddock next door. A little bit of the doubt I was feeling began to fade away.

I was welcomed by a couple of members of staff, who seemed professional and friendly, and then gently led in to a decadent purple waiting room to choose my treatment. As I perused over the treatments and sipped on my water (with ice and lemon of course) I could hear the birds singing outside and the last of my doubts ebbed away.

I chose the raindrop massage - where the therapist slowly drips essential oils along your spine and backs of the legs before performing a relaxing massage and applying warm compresses. I suffer from a really knotted back and the therapist tailored the massage to suit me and eased some of my knots which felt great and my back was much looser afterwards.

I then spent the rest of my time in the relaxation room which really was relaxing and cosy with it's in-built wood-burner, candles and the comfiest loungers I have ever experienced! Another highlight for me was the hydrotherapy pool and steam rooms which I could have stayed in for hours.

I did cut my visit short though as I went on a Saturday and after about 12pm the Spa got very busy and as it is quite small there wasn't really much room - and when a group of 6 girls on a hen party came barging in to the relaxation room laughing and screaming I decided it was time to make a move - sharpish! Also as it got busier the jugs of water didn't get replaced, dirty cups began to build up and one of the showers was absolutely jammed with a mass of black hair in the changing rooms.

When I next go back I will be booking in on a weekday instead in the hope that it isn't so busy (it is also slightly cheaper to go during the week). I also didn't get a chance to try out the theatre style kitchen while I was there, but I will have to next time as I heard from a friend who is a strict vegetarian and also wheat-intolerant that they were very helpful in amending a meal for her diet.

All in all I had a really nice relaxing time and the staff were brilliant, I think perhaps they need to have a few more staff on hand when it is busy and warn people when they book if there are hen parties booked in on the same day.
