This weekend we visited Farnham Estate and Spa. I’ve been itching to try this place out and it did not disappoint.
Set in over 1,300 acres of grounds and with a sweeping drive up to the Manor House we were even treated to a little wildlife!
After checking into our room complete with a comfy Super King sized bed and chaise longue ( now want a chaise longue), beautiful big bathroom with separate bath and shower, and a gorgeous view of the spa and estate from our huge window.
Once we’d had a good nosey at our room, we got changed and headed straight down to the spa for some relation. The Farnham Estate Spa has a funky indoor/outdoor pool where through a sliding door, guests can venture outside to a heated infinity-esque pool and enjoy views over the rolling fields. Once we’d had a paddle we then went into the spa area where we enjoyed various saunas, steam rooms and even foot baths! What I really noticed that set this hotel spa apart from others is its genuine feeling of relaxation. Set into so much countryside, you really feel ‘away from it all’.
Suitably relaxed we got changed and ventured down to The Wine Goose Cellar Bar. There is also a choice of the main restaurant and bar but I’m a sucker for exposed brick and a piano.
Since we’re slowly but surely merging into one person, we BOTH had the chowder to start AND the burger main. Could not fault either – really tasty and great atmosphere. We stayed for a couple of drinks and then retired to our room for a good night’s sleep.
Of course the next morning the other half helped himself to a double serving of breakfast. Full cooked and continental with a small selection of gluten free produce options were available. You’re not supposed to swim on a full stomach but we couldn’t leave without another dip so we ventured outside for that poolside view again before checking out.
We really enjoyed our time at Farnham Estate and Spa, but I do regret one thing… not staying for two nights. I had my heart set on a bike ride around the paths in the forest but we ran out of time (and good weather). I guess that just gives us another excuse to go back!
