Champneys Tring

An invitation to stay at Champneys Tring a couple of weeks ago, came at exactly the right time for me three weeks on from a thyroid op for a much-needed girly break where TLC was the name of the day. Two days in fact.

Isn’t Champneys Tring a beauty?

Taking along one of my best mates, Mirka of All Baby Advice and Fitness 4 Mamas, we whiled away our time lapping up the sunshine on loungers in the grounds, sipping smoothies and green tea in between dips in the pool and hot tub when the mood took us.


Just what the doctor ordered. Literally.

best mates

Champneys, we love you!

Mirka is a star swimmer.

My beautiful sister from another mister, this one makes the best plus 1 imaginable and we’re already planning more breaks together.

It’s thanks to Mirka, my Mum and I got a gorgeous luxe break in Portugal a few years back so this trip was quality time with one of my closest friends in the world and a belated thank you too.

Thank you MM.

The spa is utterly dreaming-as were the facials (more of that to come)….

First let’s take a minute to salute the food.

With both delicious and nutritious dishes at every meal (devised by a dietitician no less) with plenty of plant-based options for me too (the vegan pea and asparagus risotto below was out of this world), we loved filling our boots without feeling bloated.

We were also lucky enough to be invited to a special vegan breakfast to celebrate the launch of Champney’s new vegan skincare range and I’m not sure I’ve photographed anything prettier. Champneys sure know how to throw a (healthy) party!

It wasn’t just the food that was on point either, the facials were the best we’ve ever experienced and gave us a chance to test the new skincare collection too which you can lucky enter to win at the bottom of the post!

Now let me show you around…Champneys Tring is enveloped in pretty palatial grounds and offers stunning rooms to those wanting to stay over rather than opting for just a day visit. Our suite was elegant luxe with a stand alone bath of dreams in the en suite, and ALL the velvet cushions you could want or need- yet nothing felt stuffy or pretentious. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the gardens uplifting with rose notes seeping through the hotel and spa and the latter offers an expansive list of treatments placing you in the capable and expert hands of the beauticians there (literally).

When it came to my facial, I couldn’t wait to try Champney’s new 7 piece collection which is vegan, cruelty and paraben free and includes a cleanser, toner, day cream, facial exfoliator, eye gel, night cream and overnight face mask.

It was made by therapists for therapists and the creator Liz Chamberlayne had talked us through these gentle, vegan products over breakfast (I’m super-sensitive but didn’t react to any and adored them all) and made for the most rejuvenating and soothing facial of my life.

The range is all handmade in the UK and features the finest selected English essential oils including Rose, Bergamot, Lavender, Rosemary and blue chamomile. The range is also sulphate (SLS) free and synthetic and fragrance free.

Nicola Sapsed, Champneys Spa Development Manager says: ‘At Champneys we perform more facials each year that any other UK spa, and so it seems only fitting to launch our own new skincare range for people to use at home’.

The range is available at all Spa resort boutiques, City Spas and as well as in Boots and is priced from £14.

    This place looks amazing! The grounds are so beautiful and the food looks delicious. I would love to win because I’m vegan and always on the look out for new products to try 🙂 x

  2. Sarah Morris

    Looks fab, am a bit under the weather lately and could do with a lovely restful stay here!!

  3. claire Nutman

    Ive had a recent lung clot, and my husband left me so its been really stressful, I can think of nothing better than some girl and pamper time, absolute heaven, fingers crossed everyone….

  4. G Keegan

    Looks great I never have any ‘me time’ – this would be amazing!

  5. Gary Topley

    I would love to win this, even us men need some pampering at times. Thankyou for the competition x

  6. Jamie Edwards

    It looks so lush and you look so relaxed! I’d love a little treat, I’d probably share it with my friend who is another hard working mummy that deserves a treat too!

  7. Ema J Lowe

    I would love to have some pamper, would make a change to have some luxury.

  8. Carol Thomas

    I go to my local treatment spa once a month for reflexology and face threading. I coukd really do with a staycation after this year and the unexpected passing of my husband. It would be just the tonic

  9. katrina walsh

    Ive only ever been to a Spa for a couple of hours then went home. I imagine it would be a whole different experience knowing you could head up to a comfy room for a snooze after all that relaxation!Looks gorgeous

  10. Jade Pawley

    It would be lovely to be able to get into a good skin routine! This would be a fab start!

  11. Julie Edwards

    It looks like a beautiful place to relax and unwind. The food looks divine. Would love to win as after working 6 days for 9 months I am in need of some rest and relaxation.

  12. Shellyg

    What a beautiful house! such a fab setting. You are so lucky getting to go there and get pampered. I love a bubble bath myself. To be honest, I’d like to win, but not for me; I’d give it to my mum who looks after Grandma and doesn’t have much time to herself anymore as Grandma has dementia.

  13. Nikki Hayes

    The Champneys Spa looks fantastic! I would love to win as I really like Champneys toiletries but haven’t tried any of their skincare products as yet and I love trying out different skincare brands :o)

  14. Lorna Ledger

    Wow, this looks stunning, we went to Ragdale hall last year and I have serious Spa withdrawals! So winning a piece of luxury would really help 😉

  15. Abigail

    It seems lovely, I’d love to go someplace to relax without feeling guilty about it! The prize looks fabulous too.

  16. amanda walsh

    I would love to win this to give myself a much needed pamper session at home

  17. Kellie Steed

    The stay looked like the perfect treat for besties. I would love to do this with mine, she’s been through a rough time, might have to look into it! I’d love to win the skincare range because that type of product is always something that falls to the bottom of my list below bills, feeding and clothing the family etc. I get the occasional high street product, but never a nice full set. It would be a nice treat.

  18. Amy Burrell

    It looks so peaceful and luxurious, I would love to go here to recharge my batteries before starting the final year of my teaching degree x

  19. Fiona Sanderson

    I would love to win as work is so stressful at the moment and it would be great to have some TLC 🙂

  20. Judith MacInnes

    Wonderful pictures – especially the food. The risotto looks amazing! I’m unlikely to manage a stay there myself, but I’d love to try the skincare range!
