Recently named the Best Wellness Retreat in England at the 2019 World Spa Awards, this countryside spa is one worth knowing about as we celebrate the festive season and look to entering a healthy new year.
Grayshott Health Spa beat off competition from some of the top spas in the country, including those at Chewton Glen, The Scarlet Hotel and Champneys Tring, to be crowned one of the UK's best wellness retreats.
It's not the first year this health spa has won the Best Wellness Retreat award either as Grayshott picked up the prestigious award in 2017 and 2018, too.
We thought we'd give you a tour to tell you everything you need to know about the health retreat before you book a spa escape at Grayshott Health Spa for 2020.
Located in Surrey, just an hour away from London, and surrounded by 700 acres of peaceful National Trust countryside, a tranquil mini-break in a pristine location is just the start of your spa experience here.
The health retreat offers a restorative journey that goes beyond the usual spa break: expect therapeutic treatments, healthy spa cuisine, an extensive range of fitness classes and more.
Gut health pioneers in the UK, Grayshott is the ideal place to start the new year, especially if overeating and drinking during the festive period leaves you craving a more balanced lifestyle in 2020.
Known around the world for its approach to addressing the symptoms and consequences of modern day living through good gut health, it has a whole team of specialists, from nutritionists to natural treatment therapists, at hand.
Everything your mind and body needs for a healthy 2020! With its doctors, physiotherapists, chefs personal trainers and holistic practitioners around to help melt away your stresses or get you fit (or both), a spa break here is just the answer to a complete body overhaul.
If you like to get active, there's a beautiful swimming pool, tennis courts, a gym and exercises classes, including Pilates, yoga, Tai Chi and stretching. You can also go on guided walks around the glorious grounds.
To ensure health on departure, the spa has talks and films on nutrition and health in the on-site cinema for you to take away the knowledge.
Some of the core treatments Grayshott specialises in are nutritional evaluations, personal training sessions, lymphatic stimulation, acupuncture and cranial therapy. These ensure a health spa experience that you won't find at the average retreat.
When it comes to relaxing with an indulgent spa treatment, the massages, detoxifying body scrubs or reflexology will take you a world away from the everyday stresses of modern life.
Then there's the tasty cuisine. Grayshott’s executive chef and dietician work together to bring deliciously healthy meals. You won't find any bland 'spa diets' here as it's all about showing you how healthy eating can be full of flavour.
Mackerel with chunky tomato sauce, honey and mustard-glazed ham and salads containing red rice, mango and goats cheese often feature on the menu.
From healthy eating to relaxing in the spa, trying a new fitness class and spending time with a nutritionist or personal trainer, a trip to one of the UK's best wellness retreats is a must for 2020.
