The day had come for Gemma and I to say our final goodbyes to Champneys with our final spa visit of the year. However, we did make sure to leave on a high, as this venue was Eastwell Manor. The beautiful old manor house is situated in the county of Kent, also known as the Garden of England. We could definitely see why it was called this. Driving from Sussex into Kent, we wound around country roads and open fields, passing wildlife in all forms – including pheasants. (these seem to gravitate towards the road, so keep an eye out!)
As our Champneys visits were drawing to a close, we travelled up to Hertfordshire to visit Champneys Tring. We followed the signs to the driveway, and pulled into a parking bay. There was only a short walk until we saw the grand manor house, Tring! The original health spa is situated within 170 acres of parkland, on a former Rothschild family-owned estate. As we walked into the reception, there was a festive atmosphere with Christmas trees and lights. A welcoming receptionist checked us in and handed us our Champneys robes and flipflops, before escorting us to the treatment waiting room.
2018 has been an incredible year at Experience Days. From decadent afternoon teas in manor houses, to riding jet skis on Hove Lagoon, to getting our hands dirty at art classes, we've had plenty of fun. But what would a bit of play time be without some hard work to balance it out? That's why we’re using the end of the year as an opportunity to take stock, and reflect on some of the things we've achieved in 2018. Here at Experience Days, we’re proud to support charities across the U.K., and it’s incredibly gratifying to hear about the difference our small donations have made to the efforts that these charities make on a daily basis.
