Charlton House in Shepton Mallet, Somerset very kindly invited myself and a friend to join them for afternoon tea and use of the spa facilities as a thank you for the blog post I wrote about our stay there for my birthday in January. In case you missed it, you can read that post here.
I decided I would like to take my mum along with me for her birthday as well as both being overdue a bit of a pamper day.
I have only ever been to Charlton House in the winter so I was looking forward to being able to laze in the sun and pretend I’m on holiday for a few hours. It just so happens we ended up going on the hottest day we have had this year.
After I dropped the boys off at school I picked my mum up and we made our 90 minute journey to Somerset.
When we arrived I studied the decor as I always do. It was nice to see it all in bright sunlight. I am in complete awe of the beautiful Persian rugs scattered around the hotel and spa and after our last visit I was so inspired I purchased my very own one!
We were greeted by Lewis, the reception manager who was extremely attentive. He saw us out to the patio area and had two glasses of prosecco sent out within minutes of us sitting down.
Once changed, we got straight in the hydrotherapy pool which was as warm as a bath. The pool leads out to an outside area, where you can find sun beds, tables and a hot tub.
The attention to detail was spot on and we felt spoilt for choice with the variety we were served.
Before we departed Lewis agreed to let me have a nosey in their garden lodge accommodation.
When the doors opened I knew this is where I wanted to stay next time we visit.
My mum and I had a wonderful day at Charlton House, the only downside was having to leave.
I can’t wait to visit again and absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a tranquil retreat.
Until next time
