Relaxing at Fawsley Hall Spa

A few weekends ago, a couple of friends and I headed to Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa for a spot of well earned pampering. We’ve been before and it remains to be, in my opinion, the best spa I’ve ever been to. When we arrived, we chatted in the seating area in reception while we waited for our appointments. We were all having different treatments – I went for my usual back massage and wasn’t disappointed.

After an excellent massage, which was just right and managed to work out the tension in my shoulders, it was time to wait for the others in the relaxation room. We had booked afternoon tea over in the hotel so when it was time, we left the spa and headed to the main building. We were in the main room, which is incredibly lavish and ornate. The sofas are enormous and comfortable and the staff are always on hand, without being pushy, to help with anything. I asked for the veggie afternoon tea and had some delicious sandwiches to accompany my scones. I also asked for soya milk with my tea and as pleased that they had that too. While the sandwiches were good, the scones and cream were amazing. We had one fruit and one plain scone each and we were able to get extra cream and jam, as we didn’t hold back!

We had such a lovely time there that we’re going back in a few weeks time for an end of school treat. I think we all deserve a little de-stressing!

Afternoon Tea at Liberty

Liberty

Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending Liberty for afternoon tea. I had been invited, along with other bloggers, to meet up and enjoy some delicious tasty treats!

I arrived at Liberty on quite a cold Thursday afternoon. I was really excited to see the shop at Christmas time, as I knew that it would be all lit up & looking very festive! I wasn’t disappointed! It looked great! Then, after meeting up with the other bloggers, we were taken to the Heritage Suit, which was decorated using wood from the HMS Impregnable and was meant to be the office of Arthur Lasenby Liberty, though he died before it was finished. It is a really grand room and a beautiful setting for our little tea.

We sat around chatting about the different things that we blog about and then they brought in the food! Wow! It was really impressive! And, like the bloggers that we are, we naturally started taking pictures of the food and the table settings!

Finger Sandwiches

Between the finger sandwiches and the delicious chocolate pastries, we also enjoyed some mini scones with cream and jam. It was all really declicious and a lovely treat. I feel really blessed to go and experience something that I never thought I would, in a room that a lot of people who go to Liberty probably don’t even know exists! I’d really like to thank Liberty for inviting us all down for the afternoon, especially during their busy Christmas period. I’d also really like to thank Lauren, who found my little blog & asked me to be part of it! Thanks guys!

A perfect pre-Christmas treat!
