Spas

  • Muddy Reviews: High Tea, Merchants Manor, Falmouth

    Afternoon date? Want to kick back with a girlfriend? You won't be stuck for conversation during High Tea - a slow-burning, unique afternoon tea. CBD is a sure-fire budding industry (sorry!).

  • Five Bubbles & A Whizzy New Facial

    Shed your winter skin with a Biotec Facial and much-needed pamper at the gorgeous Headland Spa

  • Muddy Escapes to Moroc

    Did someone say cold snap? I’m off to warm up (and chill out) with a Moroccan spa experience at The Sands Resort, Newquay

  • 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.

  • Blissful Spa Break: St Moritz Hotel

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

What what what? Well, the […]

But after successfully gaining a loyal client base operating out of her converted garage, demand for master lash technician Mel’s services required she get her own premises. Mel […]

  • The Muddy Manipura Massage Experience

    Tresco – what’s not to love? Glorious sunshine, miles of white sand, gorgeous new England style cottages –  its every inch the glam holiday retreat for beautiful people. But on the hottest day of summer, I was certainly not looking beautiful. Mr MC had dragged me on an ‘offroad’ bike ride in blistering heat -sweating like a tomato in a […]

  • The Bedruthan Hotel: Family-centric Stay In Mawgan Porth

    Before I discovered the Bedruthan Hotel in Mawgan Porth near Newquay (and it seems I’m the last to know!), I’d been one to give hotels a wide berth when holidaying with the mudlets – it was always too damn difficult and self catering was how we played it. But I’m squeaking with excitement to have found possibly Cornwall’s most […]
