A getaway to Whittlebury Hall transports you to a life of luxury - or for one night at least - as you immerse yourself in plentiful pleasures.

The award-winning hotel and spa is nestled in the heart of Northamptonshire countryside, yet surrounded by a whole host of attractions to keep you entertained.

Within the gloriously grand building itself are five restaurants and bars catering for each individual need - whether its a relaxed atmosphere, formal fine-dining or somewhere just to enjoy a glass of wine before dinner - Whittlebury Hall has what you are looking for.

But first, it’s always important to work up an appetite - especially with a delicious two-course lunch buffet to look forward to - and what better way to do so than being perfectly pampered in the spa.

Last week, the Day Spa was a big winner at the World Luxury Spa Awards 2015, taking home Best Luxury Hotel Spa and Best Luxury Day Spa.

With 23 treatment rooms, and a choice of more than 60 treatments, plus a 19-metre swimming pool with bubble jets,

sauna, steam room and whirlpool spa, you can get lost in luxuriousness. Despite Whittlebury being a lively, buzzy place, it doesn’t for one moment feel overcrowded, but instead retains its relaxing tone.

A 50-minute back, face, scalp and shoulder massage with hot stones will send you to heaven and back as the biggest worry on your mind becomes what to order for dinner.

As you contemplate this thought, take a stroll down to the Silverstone Bar to enjoy an aperitif and view the unique collection of motor racing memorabilia that adorns the walls.

It’s the simple touches like this that make Whittlebury stand out from the crowd.

Next up is dinner - three-courses nonetheless in Murrays - an award-winning fine dining restaurant boasting two AA Rosettes which offers an intimate setting with attentive service - and by far my highlight of the trip.

After being met by your waiter in the grand hall, you are offered an aperitif while ordering your food and drink before being taken to the restaurant.

One of their chefs, Nigel Norris came a close second in the ‘chef of the year’ category at the Milton Keynes Food and Leisure Awards 2015 last week so prepare to be blown away by the outstanding experience you receive from start to finish.

Not only is the food sensational, but with the impeccable service and ambience combined, it proves to be one of the best restaurants I have had the to pleasure to visit.
