Spa day at Champneys Tring


For those of you that know me personally, you will know that I love a good spa day. A chance to really get away from it all, relax and be pampered. With recent news that spas can now start to re-open in the UK, I'm sure that my fellow spa fans will join me in celebrating this and get their spa treatments booked in quickly! For anyone looking for a luxury spa close to London, Champneys Tring could be the perfect treat.

Location


Having been to Champneys Spring in Leicestershire around 10 years ago with my mother, I decided to try out the original flagship Champneys Spa Tring in Hertfordshire. Now that I'm London based, it's surprisingly easy to reach, as it's just 45 minutes on the train direct from London Euston.

Checking in


I booked a spa day a few months ago with a friend that included one treatment each, access to the full spa facilities, breakfast, lunch and use of robes and slippers all day. Set in a converted stately home, guests are in awe of the Champneys Tring building on arrival as you pull up on the driveway. It's surrounded by expansive grounds and perfectly manicured gardens. On arrival, we were welcomed by the staff and checked in for the day. As part of the arrival process, we were treated to a welcome breakfast buffet which included a range of healthy and delicious options such as granola, fruit and smoothies.

Spa facilities 


After getting changed into my robe, I felt completely relaxed and settled in to the atmosphere. The spa itself is huge with a 25 metre swimming pool, several different jacuzzis including one outdoors, saunas, steam rooms, a gym, a thalassotherapy pool, two spa product shops and plenty of relaxation areas. I was very impressed with the layout and the amount of space available, however on a Saturday it did get a little crowded in the afternoon.


Treatments


For my 30 minute treatment, I opted for a facial which was both relaxing and refreshing for my skin. The only thing I would change is having a longer treatment time as I didn't want to leave the treatment room! There is a very long menu of treatments available, from massages to manicures and pedicures, so you'll definitely be spoiled for choice.

Lunch


At lunchtime, we were seated in the grand dining room amongst plenty of other guests having lunch in their robes as well! The buffet included a range of delicious and nutritional food - all very low-fat and healthy. After lunch, it was time to make use of all the facilities and chill out for the rest of the day. My absolute favourite areas included the thalassotherapy pool, jacuzzi and steam rooms as I feel like they do wonders for both my skin and any muscle tension.

For anyone looking to get away and enjoy some true pampering, I would highly recommend Champneys Tring. Find out more at: www.champneys.com/spa-resorts/champneys-tring.
