In cooler weather Champneys spas don’t get cosier than Forest Mere. Draped in glowy lowlighting and super soft furnishings, the snuggle is real. There’s no doubt about it, you’ll find it hard to resist a post-treatment snooze in front of the flickering fire.

This weekend begins at 2pm on Friday through to 4pm on Sunday.

You can relax in the steam room and Jacuzzi, take a dip in the huge swimming pool, visit the fully equipped gym or participate in some of the many classes that take place each day. Classes range through hula hooping, spinning, aqua classes and Pilates.

At the end of a long relaxing day in the spa, energetic activities and hearty meals, Champneys bedrooms are ready and waiting to sweep you off to cloud nine.
