What better way to enjoy our grounds than with a traditional English picnic on our lawns!
– Rebecca Randall, spa manager at The Spa at Bedford Lodge
The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel in Newmarket, UK, is set to launch a new experience that combines a spa treatment with al fresco dining.
Called the Hamper & Pamper Spa Day, the experience enables guests to make the most of both the spa's facilities and extensive grounds. It is designed to provide the perfect balance between relaxation and indulgence.
On arrival, guests are given fluffy robes and slippers to change into before choosing from one of five water experiences designed to aid relaxation through the combination of water jets, bubbles, and sensorial lighting.
Guests are then treated to a 65-minute Power Cleanse ritual, designed to reinvigorate the body and awaken the senses, the ritual includes a full body brush and polish, as well as a foot treatment, facial and scalp massage.
Following the treatment, guests retire to the lawn for a picnic afternoon tea for two. Billed as the 'ultimate al fresco dining experience', the picnic menu, curated by the hotel's head chef Sean Melville, offers a range of savoury and sweet treats, including hand raised pork pies, artisanal sandwiches, quiche, fruit scones and afternoon tea cakes, as well as a soft drink and a POP's alcoholic ice lolly.
The package, which costs £135 pp midweek and £155 pp at weekends, also includes full use of the spa's heat experiences including the sauna, steam room, hydrotherapy pool, and rooftop hot tub.
