We decided to take the car so we could take in the idyllic scenery on our trip to Champneys Tring. Driving through the twists and turns of country lanes we arrived at the idyllic Champneys Tring the Downton-esque driveway was the perfect movie scene. I could feel the weight of the week dropping off me. We were warmly greeted upon arrival, they were expecting us! The allocated room was simple offering countryside charm with a modern twist, all rooms include complimentary bottles of water and Champneys bath products. In the room were the famous white bathrobes and flip flops, we didn’t hesitate to get undressed put on our bathing suits to sit back, relax and enjoy the Buyagift spa experience.

The Spa Experience
The Spa offers many options with an atmosphere that commands you to relax, de-stress and be prepared to be rejuvenated. We helped ourselves to a glass of iced lemon infused water, perfect to prepare our selves body for our treatments and hydration. The spa facilities include hydropool, sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room. There was a relaxation room, with a strict no noise policy and a ban on phones or electronic devices, the perfect place to detox from life and it’s noise. The room was filled with perfectly positioned water beds with blankets, I tried to read but my body naturally fell into a tranquil relaxing sleep. In the corner of the room is a Jacuzzi with lights surrounding that changed colour and the cutest hanging hammock style chairs. We reluctantly left the relaxation room. We washed down using the powerful shower and headed to the sauna and steam rooms. My favourite feature was a large hydrotherapy pool, with the most romantic waterfall feature total heaven on earth. We tried all the features of the spa, it was such a therapeutic experience.
The Spa Treatments
The spa therapist was friendly and very knowledgable, the chosen treatments were; Champneys full body exfoliation and relaxing facial. The full body scrub was invigorating and left me feeling renewed. The therapist treated me to the most heavenly foot massage to help stimulate the detox process. The second treatment was a personalised relaxing facial. The therapist was asked questions to find out what type of skin regime was followed. The facial was a combination of cleansing, toning and moisturising whilst been extremely relaxing. The therapist finished with a head massage the experience was heavenly. Following the treatments we felt rejuvenated, detoxed and ready to experience what the night had in store.
Champneys Dinner, Breakfast and Lunch
We were greeted by the host for the night and given recommendations for food and wine. We decided to order a bottle of Prosecco and review a crafted menu using the finest locally sourced produce. We had worked up an appetite during the day, so were eager to order.
We were served customary bread with balsamic vinegar and oil (also offering Gluten Free options) while we decided on our food selection. We chose our starters; Sweetcorn and parsnip soup, light and flavoursome. Mains; Lamb Shank with creamed mashed potatoes and sweet potato wedges the lamb literally melted of the bone and was seasoned to perfection. We found space for dessert Blueberry Pavlova, sweet and delicate. Roasted Pear with toasted pine nuts and maple glaze the courses had all the right textures and flavours for an enjoyable dinning experience. The next morning we were served with a hearty breakfast with so much choice, fruits, yoghurt, full English, oats, fresh juice the list was endless. We decided to use the spa facilities one last time and take a stroll around the beautiful grounds. We worked up an appetite and were treated to a nutritional hot and cold buffet lunch before our sad departure.
Buyagift surpassed all of our expectations, the booking was effortless and the Champneys Tring experience was as expected a perfect combination to relax, experience great food and de-stress in beautiful surroundings.
