“Beautiful lighting and aroma”
We went to Bluestone with a romance package which included 2 hours in the spa with a massage, as I understood it. No mention was made of the massage and I wasn’t in the mood to complain. Was just happy to chill out having recently lost my mum. We arrived during Gale Barney, so the weather was windy and non-stop rain. After 3 days struggling to do anything with the heavy rain, we decided to visit the spa taking our umbrellas.
We got into our dressing gowns which were provided. I found the changing room to be well equipped with hairdryers and towels but the room was cold. We did the rounds of the 2 different types of sauna, 5 minutes in each room was enough with our high blood pressure (under control with medication), the salt room which I loved but my husband couldn’t see the point of it, then 2 steam rooms, one herbal. All rooms had pretty sparkly lights in the ceiling and crystals everywhere, smellie candles, power showers with 6 jets, and the ice room….I was scared of the ice room but it was lovely after the sauna…..so after 30 minutes we’d had enough and went to the coffee shop and saw people outside in the jacuzzi under the rain. We decided to join them and walked along the non slip mat in the rain and got in just as the bubbles started. How invigorating it was. 35c. It’s a shame they don’t have an indoor jacuzzi.
We had a hot shower and capuccino after that and were done for the day.
On the second day we braved the heavy rain to visit Narpeth for supplies. A great place for foodies.
We had a two storey lodge with the lounge upstairs. This was the view of the bungalow opposite us.
