Ahh, the New Forest, a place to enjoy a Miss Marple style England, made up of village greens, pub lunches in the sunshine, gurgling brooks shaded by willows and wild ponies that cause traffic jams by munching the roadside greenery. To say the New Forest is idyllic is an understatement.
Right in the very centre of the New Forest is a little village called Brockenhurst, usefully located on the mainline to London and surrounded by New Forest woodland and heathland. On the edge of this village you will find Careys Manor hotel which is a 9-minute walk from Brockenhurst train station. 7 miles from the Beaulieu National Motor Museum and is a brilliant place to spa in the New Forest.
Voted ‘Best Spa in the South-East 2015 ‘for the 4th year running by the Good Spa Guide, SenSpa is a luxury Thai spa located at the award winning Careys Manor Hotel, New Forest. This beautiful Spa is inspired by holistic wellness and inner beauty, and is committed to providing a spa experience focusing on the balance of mind, body and spirit with a fusion of Eastern and Western philosophies and treatments.
SenSpa offers an unrivalled spa experience with state-of-the-art hydrotherapy facilities, combined with world-class treatments performed by the UK’s top Thai and Western therapists. Facilities include a hydrotherapy pool; ozone swimming pool; herbal sauna, crystal steam room; laconicum; tepidarium; health showers; relaxation areas and the fantastic Zen Garden Thai Restaurant. The chefs are Thai and serve authentic Thai cuisine using organic, free range and local ingredients as much as possible.
If you can tear yourself away from the Spa, Careys Manor itself is worth a mention. Careys Manor is so beautifully positioned in the centre of the New Forest and offers opulent dining and luxury accommodation set in a manor house dating to 1888. Hire a bicycle from the village and cycle across the heathland and through the woodland, take a cocktail by the grand fireplace in the sitting room, then eat fresh organic food in the Cambium restaurant and enjoy elegant piano music into the night. This is the New Forest at its best.
