That’s why we’ve pulled out all the stops to ensure that both you and your partner can fully relax together - even alongside your furry four-legged friends! We are situated in the ideal location for creating memories, whether that’s going on adventures in the picturesque Winchester or simply doing nothing at all, relaxing in the privacy of your 5* woodland lodge surrounded by nature’s most beautiful and calming scenery - Winchester is the perfect location to hit the reset button.
In order to give you the opportunity to thoroughly spoil yourself and your loved one/s this Autumn, we have put together some ideas to inspire you for your stay with us:
Spa day/afternoon treat(ments)
In need of a little touch of luxury and a pamper? Whether you’re fancying a full body massage or a rejuvenating facial, or maybe your nails could do with a bit of TLC - we’ve got you covered. Our friendly, qualified therapist offers a range of wonderful treatments while you relax in the comfort of your own lodge - the perfect place to chill out. For those who would prefer to head out and about instead to one of our handpicked beauty salons for your treatments, a few of our favourite recommendations are displayed below:
- The Body Barn- Salisbury Hill, Longstock, Stockbridge SO20 6EZ 01264 810004
- The Skin Spa- 13 Bell St, Romsey SO51 8GY
- Arcana- 38 Jewry St, Winchester SO23 8RY
Flowers and fizz
We provide an abundance of items that can be hand-delivered to your door, even upon arrival. One option is a bouquet of flowers. We understand that flowers are perfect for any occasion, so we want to go the extra mile and help you express your appreciation for your loved one. Not only are the beautiful bouquets we provide lovingly hand-picked, but they are guaranteed to put a smile on your loved ones’ face as soon as you walk into your woodland lodge.
If you want to treat someone even further, why not also order a chilled bottle of bubbles presented with home-made heart biscuits and champagne flutes, ready to be popped open on arrival; a fantastic way to enjoy and celebrate each other - whether it’s for an occasion or not! You even have the opportunity to enjoy your fizz from the comfort of your own private hot tub on your lodge’s balcony, offering you that ultimate feeling of luxury for your special stay. All you need to do is kick back, relax and enjoy, come rain or shine! To top the night off, if you don’t fancy cooking, order one of our gorgeous Dinner to your Door options.
