Herb House opens at Lime Wood

Herb House opens at Lime Wood

Set within the picturesque grounds of Lime Wood, which featured in the Hot List 2010, the Herb House spa could rival the likes of Cowshed at Babington House and C.Side at Cowley Manor.

In the same way that Lime Wood is no ordinary country house-hotel, Herb House is no ordinary spa. The spa comprises an enormous sauna, a ‘bath house’ (with its own indoor pool), a ‘mud house’, a ‘bath garden’ (double treatment room with its own bubbling outdoor pool), and a steaming hot pool.

Treatments are delivered using products from boutique beauty brands in the British Isles. In fact, Herb House is the first spa to use Bamford Body products outside of the original Daylesford Hay Barn Spa in Gloucestershire.

Therapies include massage, facials, body scrubs and wraps, and specialty treatments such as reflexology and pregnancy massage. Couples can enjoy the range of treatments together, most of which involve spending some time in the Mud House where a traditional Arabian body treatment using steam and mud is given.

In addition to the spa rooms, the rooftop comes complete with a fragrant herb garden and panoramic forest views, making it an idyllic spot for a bit of afternoon sunbathing (weather permitting) or for a casual drink with friends. The Herb House also features a Raw Bar, which serves healthy food such as raw fish and items from the hotel’s own Smoke House, and a selection of juices, cocktails and champagne.
