Because we all need (and deserve) a little pampering.

After a year and a bit of multiple lockdowns, endless Covid-19 announcements and Friday night drinks over FaceTime, we all need a little time to adjust and reflect on what we've all been through and how we return to 'normal'.

And with travel restrictions still in place, many people are turning to the UK for a break, and in the process discovering how much it has to offer.

To us, there's no better way to unwind than with a spa break – which brings us to Careys Manor & SenSpa, located in the New Forest.

Home to the award-winning SenSpa, 77 beautiful bedrooms and suites and three restaurants, there's nothing this quaint and rustic escape doesn't have.
