Cold weather is very distressing, don’t you think? So distressing, in fact, that sometimes the only solution is to run for the safety of a secluded woodland spa yelling ‘save me’.
Thankfully, those lovely people over at Macdonald Houston House hotel are happy to welcome you in.
So much so that they are offering a reviving pamper day for two, including a luxury Couture Touch facial, glass of Prosecco each and full use of the Vital Health Club.
Needless to say, this Big Deal would also make an excellent Christmas gift.
Luxury spa day for two
Available Sunday to Friday, this Big Deal is for two people to relax with a spa day at the hotel.
The offer includes a 55 minute couture touch treatment; a glass of Prosecco and full access to the hotel’s Vital Health Club, including its gorgeous 18-metre pool.
The Elemis couture touch treatment conditions your skin and muscles with this all-embracing experience. It’s a combination of any 25 minute Elemis hands-on touch facial with a personalised freestyle deep tissue massage.
Complimentary use of a robe and slippers for the day is part of the package.
There is a £20 per person supplement for bookings on Fridays and Sundays.
A pool with a view
As mentioned, after your treatments you can to bliss out in the hotel’s Vital Health Club.
As well as a sauna, steam room and fully equipped Technogym, there is a warm pool overlooking the woodlands. This means that you can lie back, bask in the water and enjoy the view.
Or, if you are feeling energetic, why not head to the outdoor tennis court for a brisk game?
Set in 22 acres of beautiful woodlands just west of Edinburgh, Macdonald Houstoun House is an elegant country escape.
Once visited by Mary Queen of Scots, the historic building has the classic grace of a 16th century Tower House at its heart.
In other words, it’s the perfect place to escape to for a pamper session.
TripAdvisor reviewers have posted glowing praise for the Macdonald Houston House hotel spa. Here are a few reviews, edited for length:
‘...Just been for the “summer retreat” spa experience, had a lovely morning and the therapist Tanya was fantastic!!!...’
‘...It’s a beautiful building with lovely surroundings. Great pool and spa facilities…’
‘...Took the opportunity to use the spa facilities here which were also good. Pool area and changing rooms were clean and obviously well attended. First class steam room…’
Head to a heavenly haven
If you fancy a spa escape with your best friend or other half, today’s Big Deal offers everything you need. This includes a four star woodland hotel setting, lovely warm pool and an intensive facial treatment each (oh, and Prosecco as well).
Plus as this offer is available until the end of February, it would make a pretty impressive Christmas gift.
