Spa-ing at The Holm House Hotel

Fridays are for Spa daysΒ 

At least that’s what I believe anyway. I think it’s never not a good idea to book a day off work, indulge in a long weekend, grab your nearest and dearest and head to a spa for a day of relaxation.Β What can I say? I’m a lady of leisure, and I love it.

This time, it was Holm House Hotel in Penarth. With my sister in toe, we drove over early morning, bright eyed and bushy tailed in order to take full advantage of our day. We had chosen the Sunrise Package – this included a spot of breakfast and a cup of something warm. Situated in the lounge with ceiling to floor windows overlooking the Welsh sea, it was the perfect way to start our day.

Next, we were kitted out in cosy robes and made haste to the relaxation room. We seemed to have the luckiest of mornings – the sky was blue, the sun was shining and the sea was dreamy. This meant we were able to head out onto the balcony and read our books in the Autumnal sunshine. My favourite type of morning.

Afer a dip in the pool and one too many attempts at an Instagram worthy Boomerang, it was time for our treatment – a leg scrub and a shoulder, back and arm massage. An hour or so was spent indulging in our treatments – well I say an hour, but I can’t say how long it was because I was massaged into oblivion, but isn’t that the point of spa days? To relax so much, all sense of time just disappears?

A long morning spent at the Holm House Spa was the perfect was to finish off a week of work. An idyllic location, a beautiful building and some pretty lush views – this spa is definitely on my list of top spas in Wales.Β Spa and Afternoon tea anyone?Β I’m game if you are.
I wish Friday Day Spa Day was an every Friday kind of thing.
