Clumber Park.

Me and Nicole decided to treat ourselves massively today, by booking ourselves in for a relaxing Spa package at the nearby (ish!) Clumber Park Hotel & Spa. We got a really good deal actually – the day itself only cost £69 per person and included a 55 minute full body massage, full use of spa and gym facilities, £15 voucher for food and use of towels, robes and slippers. Bargain!

The spa itself is quite small and, as such, has less facilities than other bigger spas in the local area.  However, the facilities it does have are great. We started the morning by testing out the Jacuzzi (very good!) before moving onto the steam room, which was infused with some lovely aromatherapy oils and then heading into the sauna. Before we knew it, it was time for our treatments. The massage itself was absolutely fantastic – the therapist used lots of gorgeous smelling Elemis Oils and I felt so relaxed afterwards it was untrue. Following the massage, we were then taken to this cute relaxation den to just chill out briefly before lunch – heavenly!

For lunch, we shared a Seafood Grazing Board full of lovely breads, crayfish tails, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, hummus and other treats. It was so tasty and filled us up nicely after a hard morning of pampering! After lunch, we decided to brave the cold weather and dash outside to the hot tub which was probably the best idea we’d had all day. The tub itself is small so it’s pretty cosy but you get a great view of all the trees and stuff and, surprisingly, being outside in a bikini did make me feel almost as if I was on holiday.

We spent most of the afternoon relaxing by the pool, reading magazines and just generally having a good-old chit-chat before we treated ourselves to a cheeky cream tea. It’s been ages since I’ve had a cream tea (well far too long anyway!) so it made for a delicious and much-needed sugar fix to help combat my 3 o’clock slump.

We just had time to do one more round of the facilities before we headed back home, tired but very relaxed and refreshed. I had an excellent day and it made a really nice change to do something a bit different that I wouldn’t usually get the opportunity to do, especially when in Glasgow. It was also a nice way to round off what has been an excellent week and help me prepare for what I’m sure will be another great weekend at home 🙂
