Haybarn Spa, The Cotswolds

Bamford Haybarn in the Cotswolds is a centre of wellbeing, that nurtures the mind, body and spirit, based around a heartfelt connection with nature.

The Haybarn Spa offers a number of wellness programmes, yoga, pilates, facials and massages. The day spa is located on Daylesford Farm which I wrote a post about a few weeks ago and now it's time for the spa review.

The Wild Rabbit, Kingham

Described by some as "the poshest pub in the country", The Wild Rabbit has a lovely traditional feel with a modern twist.

Having never visited The Cotswolds before (it's true!) it really is so very pretty. If you imagine a typical 'chocolate box' country spot, you won't be disappointed as that exactly what you'll find.

The Pig Near Bath

Before starting a new job, I decided to treat myself to a bit of a staycation and go to Bath, Bristol & The Cotswolds.  It's been really fun deciding where to go and I've also been able to tie it in with visiting friends who now live out of London.

First stop is The Pig near Bath, a mellow country house perfectly situated near Bath and Bristol, where I was greeted by a swan in the car park! 


We all lead such busy lives sometimes it can all feel a little overwhelming.  When I get to that point and know I need a bit or R&R, the Four Seasons in Hook is always my first choice.  

This time, I opted for a Retore Day Retreat which includes 2 hours of spa treatments, full use of the spa facilities, two course light lunch in Cafe Sante and you even leave with a nice spa gift at the end of the day.
