This blog post is slightly overdue, but we had that much of a good time that I couldn’t just not post about.
So, not that long ago, myself and 7 other lovely ladies headed over to Hoar Cross Hall for a hen weekend. We stayed over on the Friday night, and came back Saturday evening. Our package included a three-course evening meal on the Friday, breakfast, and we had an upgrade to Champagne Afternoon Tea on the Saturday.
When we arrived on the Saturday, at about 2pm, we got ourselves checked in and shown to our rooms. We had a look around and were super impressed with the rooms and the bathrooms were filled with miniature Elemis products, which were gorgeous to use! All of our rooms were relatively close to one another, which was really handy.
We then decided to get our bikinis on and head down to the spa for a bit. We went for a swim, made use of the saunas and steam-rooms and had a bit of a natter in the Jacuzzi.
Because it was such a beautiful day, we then went out to the back gardens of the building and had a couple of cocktails. It was too nice to be sat indoors, so we sat outside, sipping cocktails, admiring the gorgeous view of the gardens.
Our evening meal was booked for 7:30pm, so at about 6pm, we headed back up to the rooms to get showered and ready for dinner. The food was absolutely beautiful, and the service was great! I had paté on toasted ciabatta with a red onion chutney for starters, steak and chips with salad and garlic bread for mains, and cheese and biscuits for dessert (excuse the iPhone quality on these images, I left my camera in the room!). After dinner, we had a couple of drinks and went back up to our rooms where we gave the bride-to-be the gifts and surprises we had got for her.
Breakfast was just as good the following morning. It was a help yourself kinda thing, with the most amazing cooked breakfast, and alllll of the beautiful pastries.
After breakfast, we headed straight to the spa, where we made use of all the facilities. It was SO nice to just completely chill, wind-down and relax. We made our way to the product shop, which was filled with allllll of the Clarins and Elemis products you could ever want! I of course, didn’t go away empty handed and bought quite a few things, as did a few of the other girls. The member of staff in the shop, Claire, was super helpful, recommended specific products to us, matched us up to the products we were interested in, and really looked after us! She made sure we had everything we wanted and needed and was so lovely.
At 2pm, we had our Champagne Afternoon Tea. We were supposed to eat this in the Library of the building, however because the weather was too good, we very cheekily asked if we could enjoy it outside instead (which we did!). The bartender at Sally Bee’s (the upstairs café), Sam, was absolutely incredible at looking after us and making that we had everything we needed. He invented us our own cocktails if we didn’t like what was on the list, he was so, so friendly and this really made such a difference to our day! Sam only had a few weeks left at Hoar Cross Hall at this point, but he was such an amazing member of staff and the way he treated each guest was just fantastic! The afternoon tea itself was to die for. There was a variety of different foods; sandwiches, wraps, cake, scones.. you name it. I think I speak for most of the girls when I say this was one of the highlights of the weekend as we had such a lovely time sat outside, eating, drinking and being treated incredibly well by the members of staff!
We all had the best weekend here at Hoar Cross Hall, and the staff here definitely contributed to how memorable this weekend was. Myself and several of the others visited here not too long ago, which I did a post on here, so we were so excited to be coming back for a second time and I’m pretty sure it won’t be the last either! We all came home feeling relaxed and refreshed, which is exactly how you’re supposed to feel after a spa weekend! I’ve been to a couple of different spas, and spa breaks and so far, this is by far the best. I’ve raved about this place and recommended it to multiple people, which have then visited here themselves and have had the best time.
I have a few more visits to here lined up throughout the year, so, Hoar Cross Hall, I’ll see you again soon!
