I won’t lie to you, I always enjoy a spa trip

So when I got asked to go and sample the Jacobean mansion that is known in the biz as Hartwell House, I was very excited indeed!

A mere hour away from London, I had no shortage of friends with cars who made themselves available on the Monday night of my visit. I plumped for my bessie Chris and we headed north, stopping only once for a wee stop! So it must have been very close indeed.

I was booked in for a facial, but alas we were running late, so I had a 23rd hour change of plan and went for an invigorating full body massage instead.  In my head, this made sense as then I could finish off my indulgence in the pool, jacuzzi and steam room! Result.

Dinner was a grandiose affair, so I’m glad we brought our glad rags! And even though I ate enough calories to fill me up for 48 hours, I sampled the full English brekkie the next day too. Yum.

Come with a friend, and make a friend for life. After all, what happens in a hot tub in Aylesbury stays there….

Keep your peepers on Stylenest for my full review.
