Escape winter blues with relaxing spa stay close by

Let’s face it, the tail-end of winter is not the most inspiring of times. Which is why it’s important to find ways to bring us out of the slump.

And what better way than taking a spa break at Whittlebury Hall?

I opted for the Winter Spa Special which includes a night’s stay in the hotel for two, use of the leisure facilities (jacuzzi, swimming pool with bubble jets, whirlpool spa, sauna and more...) and the heat and ice experience as well as a full English breakfast.

I also pushed the boat out and added a three-course dinner in the Astons restaurant (£25 upgrade).

When entering the hotel you instantly feel transported to another world – a thoroughly calm and peaceful one.

with plush Chesterfield sofas and an impressive decor the impression is none other than grand.

The service is second-to-none and the combination of fine dining, tranquil rural surroundings and invigorating swims and jacuzzi dips is a great recipe for true relaxation.

So whether you’re looking for a romantic break, a girlie get-together or just a weekend of indulgent pampering, Whittlebury Hall should tick all the boxes.

I stayed on a Sunday to Monday which was the only downside – as I had to leave to get to work!

The package is £89 per room, available to book online only, Sunday – Thursday until March 31.

So if you’re stuck for ideas of what to get mother dearest on Mother’s Day...
