Amy Watkins decides it's time to detox, refresh and revitalise.
With the cold weather dragging on, there's nothing better to perk up jaded spirits than a pamper break at a luxury Spa hotel. We could all do with a detox to kick-start a new health regime in time for the spring – and it's a great excuse to enjoy some fine dining without feeling guilty!
Stay at the classic country style Bishopstrow House, near Bath, and indulge in champagne and truffles on arrival and a three-course gourmet meal in the Mulberry restaurant.
