Where I Go To Relax | Cliveden Spa
The other week I paid a visit to the beautiful Cliveden Spa in Taplow, near Maidenhead. If you are from London, you can get to Maidenhead from Paddington in about 20 minutes on a fast train! I have been waiting for a couple of years for the heavily anticipated refurb to be completed and I finally got the chance to experience it with my best mate Laura.
I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed recently with everything, blog stuff, work, social life, love life- I've been struggling to balance everything, I seem to always feel like I'm on a balancing ball trying to find the ground. I think in this fast paced world that we live in, it's important to take time out for yourself, and it's something I havn't done in a while so I decided to book myself in for a spa day with treatments.

The spa itself is seriously beautiful. You feel like you've arrived at a royal manor when you first drive in. It did wonders for my Instagram story...you'll know what I mean when you visit the spa for the first time! We decided to start our day with a gym session, we did a full body work out in one of the Cliveden studios. The gym class was an interesting experience, we were the only two under the age of 60, I think I laughed more than I worked out, which proved great for my abs! You could tell all the ladies were regulars to the gym class we attended, it really put us in a good mood for the rest of our day!
I had an amazing 90 minute back massage and an express facial from the lovely therapist there. The waiting room before the treatment was one of my favourite parts. The room is blissfully silent and looked over the gardens and the pool area.
The spa was fully equipped with treatment rooms, a waiting room, 2 pools, 2 hot tubs, a cafe and (small) but well equipped changing rooms to get changed in after your spa day. I particularly enjoyed the hot tub, even though it was freezing outside, the hot tub itself was wonderful! We drank rose and enjoyed the views of the gardens and admired the buildings around the pool area. I have never felt so serene!
I left feeling the spa like a new woman. I had the most relaxing day I've had in a long time. I actually can't wait to go back I loved it so much. If you are interested in visiting the spa please click the link below. I have also included a brochure which has more information about the spa!
