Lucknam Park Hotel is situated on the edge of the classically pretty village of Colerne six miles outside Bath. The long drive stretches up to the 17th century main house that fronts the breathtaking 500 acre estate. This secluded venue offers an ideal setting for weddings, spa breaks or simply an indulgent weekend away with a loved one.

Lucknam Park's spa boasts a twenty-metre swimming pool lined by daybeds, and thermal cabins sit just behind - the pick of which has to be the Japanese Salt Room complete with horizontal marble chairs to sink into. Particular appreciation must be paid to the indoor-cum-outdoor Jacuzzi separated by an electronic sliding window. Enjoy the sharp fresh air whilst bobbing idly amongst Jacuzzi bubbles and taking in the magnificent rural view - a moment of relaxation you'll urge yourself to bank for when you are back at your office desk.

The tranquillity of the pool area continues through to the treatment rooms, where an abundance of spa staff are on-hand to politely welcome guests. Waiting time is non-existent before being whisked off to one of the numerous therapy rooms. Music is tailored to your preference during your treatment, whether it be Beethoven's Adagio or more traditional spa music. The Anne Semonin facial is a must (which ironically begins with a hot towel being wrapped around the feet), and the relaxation room is available after treatments to unwind further still. Take this opportunity to sip herbal teas whilst overlooking the immaculate gardens of Lucknam Park. Pampering perfection. Find out more and book at www.lucknampark.co.uk
