Elegant stately home Champneys at Tring was opened as a health farm in 1925, and has been pioneering holistic wellbeing ever since - to this day it is a dedicated health resort with lavish spa and leisure facilities.
Set in 170 acres of rolling Hertfordshire parkland, Champneys at Tring was originally the Rothschild Mansion, and is steeped in history: guests can still take tea in the Drawing Room, unwind in the Music Room, or play snooker in the Games Room. The grounds include their own walled organic garden, croquet lawn, floodlit tennis courts and open-air hot tub. Just north of London, near the M25, Tring is a charming village west of Hemel Hempstead, and close to both Heathrow and Luton airports.
A ?14 million pound refurbishment has added a state-of-the-art gym and cardio-fitness theatre to the already extensive facilities at Champneys at Tring. There's also a new 25-metre pool, a Laconium, and a Herbal Steam Chamber. A thalassotherapy pool will open shortly, and yoga and pilates are scheduled for guests, as well as meditation classes. The spa offers a comprehensive range of alternative therapies: LA Stone, Hopi Ear Candles, Aurasoma, and Metamorphic Technique to name but a few. There are over 100 different health and beauty treatments to choose from, using products from Babor, Elemis, Tisserand and the exclusive new Champneys Spa Collection.
And if the relaxed environment and regenerative therapies work their magic and get the creative juices flowing, guests can even do a spot of painting in the resort's own Art Studio.
