Set in the stunning scenery of the New Forest, the Herb House Spa offers treatments inspired by natural ingredients, many of which are grown in the rooftop herb garden and surrounding grounds of the Lime Wood Hotel. The spa is simple in design: treatment rooms feel Scandinavian, and pretty pots of herbs and lavender are dotted about.
Designed to revive, the Bamford Signature Treatment includes an essential oil foot bath, full body exfoliation, and pure oil body and scalp massage. The rooms at Lime Wood and the Spa all have the Geranium collection by Bamford available for guests which has herbaceous heart notes of Egyptian Geranium and twin Lavenders, with spicy vanilla hints of Tonka lifted by peppermint and blue gum eucalyptus.
Alongside Bamford body treatments, NUDE, Voya and Tri-Dosha therapies are offered. After treatment, spa-goers can enjoy the splendid rooftop view or tuck into home-grown food and frighteningly healthy juices at Raw and Cured.
Raw and Cured is the food bar in the Herb House Spa which offers delicious, natural and healthy food, including freshly made salads, cured fish and meat from Lime Wood’s own Smoke House; as well as fresh juices and smoothies, but not forgetting wines and champagnes to remind you that it’s okay to indulge too!
The Spa facilities also include a Lap Pool, gym, outdoor hot pool, plus a Hydro Pool and Sauna with stunning views of the Forest.
The unique forest setting and innovative use of natural materials combined with state-of-the-art Technogym equipment and the best holistic and Ayurvedic therapies, puts the Herb House in a different league. There are a range of packages for day spas or longer stays – take a look here for more information.
