The Vineyard Spa, Berkshire
WHERE: The Vineyard Spa
THE VIBE: Modern, recently decorated country house hotel specialising in over 30,000 wines
BEST BRIDE-TO-BE TREATMENT: The Vineyard Red Grape Pampering Body Wrap
It starts with a full-body exfoliation before you’re wrapped up in a red grape body mask and given a head massage. To top it off there’s a final application of The Vineyard Red Grape Body Cream that will leave you with super soft skin. 55 minutes, £70.
HIS ‘N’ HERS TREATMENTS: There’s a double treatment room – you can have a facial and your future husband can test run the new VitaMan treatments (designed just for men).
BEST AMENITY: The Ren Amenities in the room is a nice touch as it’s a great natural brand.
MUST DOS WHILE YOU’RE THERE: Try the Daniel Galmiche Tasting Menu – totally unique, you choose from a selection of sweet and savoury dishes created by the head chef and eat them in any order you fancy. Think pigeon followed by victoria sponge with a side chaser of duck terrine. And you can partner each dish with sommelier-selected wines by the glass. From £49.
WHO GOES: Maggie Smith stays there when filming Downton Abbey.
THE BEDROOM: Nice big comfy bed, enormous bath that’s big enough for two and the room is tastefully decorated with unique art.
