The Elemis Rose Champagne Spa day has been designed with pure bliss in mind! Exclusively available at the Hotel, the experience celebrates 15 years of Hand Picked Hotels working with Elemis. Inspired by the beauty of the gardens there and Elemis’ new Rose Micro Serum, treatments are aimed at restoring a youthful bloom to skin and fresh energy to the body and soul. Centred around a 55-minute limited-edition Elemis Rose Facial, spa visitors are guaranteed an experience that awakens the senses and transports them to the beauty and relaxation of an English rose garden. As the serene scent fills the air, expert spa therapists will use specialist facial massage techniques to deeply cleanse the face using Elemis’ Rosewood Essence, Pro-Collagen Rose Balm Cleanser and Oil, leaving guests’ skin feeling blissfully soft and hydrated. To complete the experience, guests will then be treated to a rose-themed afternoon tea, complete with a chilled glass of Villa Saletta Spumante – a light, sparkling rosé made in Tuscany from 100 per cent Sangiovese grapes. What’s more, spa-goers can enjoy the spa facilities, including sauna, steam rooms, indoor pool, hydrotherapy pool, amber lounge and relaxation room. Ensuring guests can continue their rose experience at home, the package also includes an Elemis Pro-Collagen Micro Serum gift. Elemis Rose Champagne Spa Day is priced from £125 per person, with overnight stays at Rookery Hall Hotel & Spa from £323.

The chapel dates back as far as 1656 boasting an array of stunning architecture. Located in the heart of Cheshire, Crewe Hall Hotel & Spa is a Grade I listed Jacobean mansion originally owned by the influential Crewe family. The chapel was built as a place of worship for the family and their staff. Steeped in rich history, the chapel boasts 12 ornate stained-glass windows depicting the apostles, as well as alabaster and marble carvings. Back in the 17th century, when services were conducted in the original chapel, the Crewe family sat in their own pew in the gallery above, which they entered through their own private door upstairs. The weddings team is now taking bookings for civil ceremonies as well as non-religious events within the chapel. It’s a truly special element to include in your day. Ideal for intimate occasions, it can seat up to 40 guests, with additional capacity for 35 standing behind the pews and on the upper balcony. Receptions can then be carried on within the hotel’s other historical spaces such as The Drawing Room, The Long Gallery or The Great Library. With a whole realm of function suites available, this idyllic 17th-century mansion, with manicured grounds, elegant rooms and spectacular views is made for unforgettable weddings. Find out more at 10
