The kind folks at Ragdale Hall and Clarins recently invited me to enjoy an indulgent spa experience with a friend. Since my mum lives in South Africa, I invited my sister along for the Clarins Mother and Daughter Day. All I can say is that one day is not nearly enough time to fully experience all that there is to offer…
Let me start by saying that I am a huge Clarins fan. I use various Clarins products daily and have found it has worked really well with my skin, especially during and after pregnancy. I first became a Clarins fan when Selfridges sent me Clarins Double Serum for Mother’s Day and have since been hooked.
So off my sister and I ventured to Ragdale Hall in Leicestershire for a day of pampering. We were greeted with the friendliest hospitality you could imagine and after a quick cup of tea we changed into our bathrobes and chose to explore the venue ourselves. Jeepers it has pretty much everything a spa could have and then some. From the Candle Pool to the Waterfall Pool to relaxation and exercise classes to a full menu of treatments. The grounds are simply stunning and you could just spend a day alone reading a book on a bench.
We tucked into lunch (with some rose, of course!), took a dip in the pool and tried out the massage water jets, and then had our Clarins facial. Before we knew it we had to get ready to leave but we left feeling more relaxed and smelling lovelier than when we arrived.
Because were drove there and back from London for the day (crazy right?) we hardly got to sample most of what Ragdale Hall and Clarins has to offer. I would advise you to take your mum away for a weekend in order to truly relax and enjoy the full experience.
Thanks to Ragdale Hall and Clarins for a memorable day!
