Yesterday my cousin Janet, our friend Linda and I went for a pamper day at High Head Spa at Ivegill on the edge of the Lake District.  It's part of a place called High Head Sculpture Valley, there's a working dairy farm, a great cafe, art gallery and shop.  There's also a lovely walk in the valley that you can take which has various sculptures along its path.  They have just opened holiday rental accommodation too.  And at the back of the complex there's a large log cabin which houses the spa.

We arrived at 11am, the cabin was warm and cozy and we were shown into a room that had a hot tub, loungers and a sauna.  We had the room to ourselves which was really great and we could relax in there for an hour before our treatments. We got in the hot tub and chilled in there for a while.  Then we decided to try  out the sauna - none of us had been in one before.  Wow it was hot!  We didn't last long, I can see why they plunge into ice cold water afterwards normally!  However here there was no icy pool here, so we drank lots of cold water to cool down a bit.

We had two treatments each as part of the deal, you could choose from a back and shoulder massage, a facial or a manicure.  We all went for the massage and facial and they were fabulous!  I especially enjoyed the massage and felt really chilled afterwards, the others enjoyed their treatments too.  The girls who work there were very professional and friendly.  Afterwards we had a delicious lunch in the cafe was included in the price of the deal.

All in all it was a wonderful day and well worth the £45 cost, we'll definitely be going back.  You can visit their website here:
