Situated in three acres of secluded gardens in Newmarket, Suffolk, Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa is a four AA red star retreat in a beautiful country setting. The spa features a therapeutic hydrotherapy pool with five heat experiences, rooftop hot tub, steam room, sauna, hammam, experiential showers and ten relaxing treatment rooms.
The Lavender Poultice Massage (120 minutes; £150) is designed to give a calming and relaxing effect to the mind and body, achieved by the use of exfoliation and warm herbal poultices. This provides heat to the muscles and joints, which increases circulation, and is followed by a purifying and rebalancing massage. A warm, soothing compress infused with lavender is then applied, creating an overall feeling of wellbeing.
