Robes on, hair up, massage booked. This Saturday was set to be a good one! Me and 6 of my girlfriends spent our Saturday at the Ardencote Hotel and Spa in Warwick and it couldn’t have been a more relaxing, fun and loony weekend if we tried! The occasion? None! Just an excuse to be in each others company surrounded by a bit of luxury!
The spa is about an hour and 15 drive from Aylesbury and very easy to get to via the M40. Our package included an overnight stay, free use of robes, slippers and towels, buffet lunch, 3 course meal in the evening, breakfast, 25 minute back massage AND a bottle of bubbles in our room. The spa itself has indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, a sauna, steam room, relaxation lounge and free drinks all day (sadly not the alcoholic kind) and we had access to this from check in at 10.30 – amazing!
The food was so gooooood. The buffet lunch was all you can eat comfort food and delicious. We chose our dinner options from a very fancy menu and enjoyed that in the restaurant later that evening. Drinks at the bar weren’t cheap but it was nice to order a nice bottle of red and some cocktails as a treat. We played ping pong after dinner and stumbled across the unlocked dance studio… well. Me and Sal were LOVING it! Floor to ceiling mirrors, a bar, weights, kettlebells, tunes. We were away.
See. Told you it was a loony weekend.
There was a wedding going on (which we were tempted to gatecrash) so there were a few people around, but we still managed to do everything we wanted to do in the spa and had some lovely rooms overlooking the lake and grounds. It was such a nice way to catch up, spend time with Emma who was visiting from New Zealand and unwind.
Short but sweet this week, but I just wanted to encourage you all to book that beauty treatment and getaway with your friends – just because! It’s completely worth it, every time.
With love and feeling very relaxed,
