Good afternoon friends,
Saturday was wonderful but hectic, working until 12, then rushing to the spa, then a night out, for a moment it felt like it should be, the excitement of being rushed off your feet, out and about and making the most of your weekend.
My best friend Callum and I have had a few spa days together over the past couple of years, and jumped at the chance when we saw a deal for a spa day at The Lakeside
For £90 between us, we had booked for use of the spa, a Elemis 20 minute back, next and shoulder massage each, and a afternoon tea.
£45 each for lunch, a massage and to drift away for a few hours was worth every penny
They had dressed the lakeside beautifully for Christmas. I always think it is a beautiful spa, but with the added Christmas trees and sparkling lights, it made it that little bit more wonderful.
There was a wedding that was held there at the same time, but we didn’t get a glimpse of it at all, as they were in another part of the building, but I can see the appeal.
Our spa afternoon started with lunch, a gorgeous variety of finger sandwiches, scones, fruit and plain, with clotted cream and jam, and mini cakes. Along with a shared pot of tea and a couple of pink gins, we were settled and relaxed
After lunch we got changed and relaxed in the bubble lounge before being led to our rooms for a massage.
My massause had magical hands, the warm oil and relaxing music had me struggling to stay awake. It was incredible
After our massages we spent some time in the outdoor hot tub, indoor jacuzzi, pool, and steam room, all whilst having a good old catch up.
I was a little skeptical at first, due to Covid, but there were limited people in each area, booking times were spaced out, and the spa looked clean and felt safe.
I am thankful for a escape, with a friend, even if it was just for a few hours
