| RECENT ESCAPADES | Immersed in pure relaxation at Ragdale Hall…
Just before Christmas, Save the Date Magazine had the chance to experience a day of pure relaxation and indulgence at the award winning Ragdale Hall Spa in Leciestershire.
Having arrived around 10am on a crisp, cold but beautifully bright and sunny December day, we were given the warmest welcome and shown around the lovely facilities. Having enjoyed a hot chocolate in the relaxing café, we popped our dressing gown and slippers on and began our spa experience.
Our first stop was the new rooftop pool – a cascading infinity pool with the most spectacular views across the countryside. Here, we relaxed and chatted and soaked up the gorgeous winter weather (it’s so cosy with the warm water and the chill of the air above with the bubbles gently bubbling away listening to the birds and the laughter of other guests).
After this, we headed to the spa area and meandered around the various rooms from saunas to jacuzzi’s, steam rooms to Turkish baths. There are also 6 pools so we enjoyed a relaxing swim and loved the experience – truly tranquil and perfectly laid out.
It was then lunch time so we headed to the beautiful dining room (still in our dressing gown and slippers!) and enjoyed the most amazing 3 course lunch. A buffet was set out in front of us with so much incredible food from salads to curry dishes, cut meats to delicious desserts. The service was impeccable and we ate so much! We also enjoyed a cheeky glass of prosecco (it would be rude not to!) and sat surrounded by lots of groups of giggling women (the perfect place for a pre wedding together!) as well as couples enjoying some ‘me’ time.
Following this, it was treatment time! The most amazing facial with such a lovely therapist – just what the doctor ordered. There is a huge, extensive menu of treatments on offer, you are literally spoilt for choice and all the therapists are just so warm and friendly.
Around 3.30pm, it was just starting to get dark so we decided to head up to the rooftop pool just one more time to enjoy the dusk and soak up a few more minutes of the peace and tranquillity this amazing space offers.
Home time and we got dressed in the huge changing rooms with power showers, mirrors, hair straighteners. They really have thought of everything. We met with a few other ladies who are regulars to Ragdale Hall Spa and we can see why – the perfect place to unwind and recharge your batteries.
So, if you’re planning your wedding and in need of a de-stress or if you fancy getting your best girls together for a pre wedding pamper or maybe even you and your hubby to be fancy some precious time together, whatever the reason, find an excuse and head to Ragdale Hall Spa. You won’t be disappointed.
