Time to take steed from our man David Attenborough and turn to nature for a little R&R. ‘Forest bathing’ is just what the mind, body and soul needs as a break from the city hustle, helping to reduce blood pressure and stress hormones. For just that, pop the Greenwoods Hotel and Spa into your sat nav and make way to the countryside this weekend. If all it’s greenery fails to help you unwind, put your feet up (in complimentary slippers, of course), and try the dreamy massages available here.
5 spas that are so relaxing you won’t believe they’re just one hour outside of London
A wise man once said that if you’re tired of London, you’re tired of life. The year was 1777 and he obviously hadn’t dealt with overcrowded tubes, or walking down a busy street (pick up the pace, people). We are tired, and could do with some time out – if only to re energise and get back to loving life in the big smoke, Central line and all. For those me-time moments, we’ve rounded up the best five spas that are just one hour from London, because you deserve a break (and so do we).
