  • A Mini-Retreat For Daydreamers

    Serene as a mountain lake and filled to the brim with Pukka tea, did I dream it? No, I just spent the day at the heavenly Scarlet Spa.

    A properly stylish yet child-friendly hotel is the holy grail of family holidays and the St Moritz in Trebetherick strikes the perfect balance.

  • Muddy Tries New IonActive Facial

    Its been an age since I caught up with Muddy award winning beauty salon Claire at Banburys in Launceston (blame island hoping, face stuffing and general slovenliness) and I heard a rumour that they were about to launch a new immediate results customisable facial – a countywide first no less!

      • Muddy Tries: Bedruthan Sensory Spa Experience

        The Bedruthan Hotel is a personal Muddy favourite – uber cool and totally family friendly, it’s nestled on a cliff top above the magnificent Mawgan Porth Beach between Padstow and Newquay. When I heard about the new Sensory Spa Garden, designed to invigorate all your senses in a one-hour experience, I was packing quicker than you […]
