Macdonald Craxton Wood Spa

Macdonald Craxton Wood Spa

As a massive fan of a good Spa day I decided to check out the Macdonald Craxton wood spa. I took my mum along for a little treat. We were greeted by the lovely staff and had a healthy lunch with some champagne in the gorgeously calm eating area which over looks the pool.


We were then shown around the spa and to our own lockers were are robes and slippers were waiting for us. We got changed and then went for a steam before we had a swim in the pool before drying off in the roasting hot sauna.



I’d booked our treatments in late so we could make use of the facilities first as I’m always ready  for bed after I have a relaxing massage and a facial so I always have my treatments late whenever I go to a spa. So we waited in the relaxation room read some magazines and drank some lemon water until the therapist came and collected us. I was that relaxed I fell asleep and my mum had to wake me up! Lol



Over all my spa day was a lovely experience and I’d definitely recommend Macdonald Craxton wood spa to anyone looking for the ultimate spa day!
