Cedar Falls - Spa day (why didn't I take any photo's)

Picture form cedarfalls.co.uk

One of my many mistakes when I write a post is coming up with the idea to write one after I have been somewhere. Guess what? I did it again.

Wednesday, me, my sister, mother in law and her sister, popped into the car and drove up to Cedar Falls Spa  in Taunton to pamper ourselves for the day.

We were greeted by the woman at the check in desk with our bathrobes, towels and slippers which we were to change into. We then had to fill in a form to let them know any problems we had, medical conditions etc, and to hand them in to the spa to sort out the times for our treatments.

We then had the day to ourselves. I got changed and the first thing I did was jump in the exotic steam room. I had never been in one before and the heat really hit me and I thought I would have to come straight out. But after a few minutes I was loving it, we then went in the Jacuzzi and pool.

We then had an hour before lunch so we went to the oasis room of tranquility with it's comfy sofa's and lighting it was brilliant for a relaxing snooze (which the others did) or a read which I did.

On to our lunch. Included in our package was a 3 course lunch. We had broccoli and leek soup to start, a choice of duck noodles or a vegetable gratin and a fruit salad for after. Each meal is designed to be healthy and also had been made from fresh local produce which I think is great. There was also a salad bar which we were eyeing up as soon as we got in the dining room, it was like a course in itself.

Straight after lunch was my treatment. Included in my package was either a dry float treatment or an aqua jet massage. A dry float treatment is where you lie on this special bed and get wrapped up in warm towels and make you feel almost weightless, it is supposed to be very relaxing.

I on the other hand chose an aqua jet massage which is when you lie on your back on a water bed and the jets of water underneath slowly massage you from your legs all the way up to your shoulders. It was very relaxing and as my job consists of pushing heavy hot food trolley's around it was just the job.

We then spent the rest of the afternoon swimming, going in the Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. Just as we were going to get ready we noticed a sign for cake. So after all that healthy relaxation, we had cake!

We sat in the very old and luxurious drawing room of this grand mansion type spa and had cake. A bit of indulgence before we went back to reality.

I would defiantly go back again as the weather (as everyone knows at the moment is the best and there is beautiful grounds that I would have loved to walk.

I would also recommend Cedar Falls to you guys. It is a friendly and gorgeous place that Is great value for money. The package I had was the Day at the Oasis package and it was £69. There are plenty of other packages available including a half day package too. (Here is the list of packages)

I would just like to thank my mother in law Jenni for my day out as it was her treat, also a big thankyou to my sister Dani and Alison for Coming with us. But the main thanks goes to my other half Jerome who had both Juno and Dani's daughter for the day.

Have you ever been to Cedar falls/ or a Spa?

Speak to you soon.
