"It’s rare that I find the opportunity to take a UK mini break so when I got offered the chance to see Woolley Grange in Wiltshire, I jumped right on it.
Okay so it was only a couple of nights at the end of a very cold week in February, hardly the best time to be in the idyllic English countryside but as I said – these sorts of opportunities are rare.
A mere two hours’ drive later from our home in London we were standing in reception where a cheerful receptionist and the resident dog were there to welcome us to Woolley Grange, an impressive yet very down to earth hotel (or large country house would be more fitting.)
Our suite was charming. Two good sized bedrooms separated by a small corridor with a bathroom in between. It was rustic and charming with a touch of luxurious accents such as Molton Brown products and Orla Kiely mugs for your complimentary tea and coffee. There were quaint little windows making the most of the light and providing lovely views over the grounds. It was a home away from home but with all the joys of knowing that we were going to be waited on hand and foot for the next 24 hours.
Afternoon tea was taken in one of the small cosy living rooms. A plus of travelling before a weekend and outside of holidays was that we had the room to ourselves (bar the dog who chose to come and lie by my feet.) We did something we rarely get the chance to do, we had a full afternoon tea and read a paper….it’s the simple things that matter and whilst not exciting for some, it was heaven for busy parents such as us! The baby was quiet and as long as the wood on the fire kept burning, I was happy to stay for the afternoon but the spa was calling.
In contrast to the rest of the traditional house, the spa is a relatively new contemporary building for the hotel but looked very much in place. It was a modern barn with huge glass windows and a wonderful aspect over the grounds and the walled organic garden. I find the combination of spa and kids a little hard to get my head around – the spa is somewhere I go to escape kids so I was a little cynical when I saw a family convening the reception area. However, the indoor pool and kids changing areas are very separate from the treatment rooms so although there were kids splashing around during my massage, I heard nothing. It’s also nice to know that when the weather is too brutal to be outside, there is an indoor haven for both the parents and the kids.
There was a little confusion over my pre-booked massage. I was very disappointed to learn that despite my emailing the request at the time of confirming my stay, the spa had no record of it. What could have been a disastrous situation (yes that’s how badly I needed this treatment), was thankfully rescued by Amy, the wonderful therapist who worked hard to accommodate me in between other appointments. Okay so I didn’t quite get the 90 minutes I had booked, but judging quality over quantity, the 60 minutes was sheer bliss and absolutely what the doctor ordered. This is very much a spa with a family twist and it works well – I may just be converted!"
