How a spa break can revitalize your relationship…

How a spa break can revitalize your relationship…

Today’s prize in our ongoing 12 Days of Christmas comp is the chance to win a copy of Jessica Gilmore’s Proposal At The Winter Ball, plus a SPA AFTERNOON AND CREAM TEA FOR TWO AT THE ILSINGTON HOTEL ON DARTMOOR! We love a good spa break and there are plenty of reasons you should enter this one, espeically if your relationship is in need of a bit of pampering:

At a spa it’s perfectly acceptable for you to get all your clothes off and take pride in your amazing body. Maybe you’ve gained a few pounds? Maybe you carry the scars of past accidents, or from giving birth to your kids?  Who cares? Every tiger has to earn her stripes. Show them off and be proud, and let your partner see the you they fell in love with. All of you.

At a spa, the constant pampering leaves you turned on. There’s nothing more relaxing than having someone massage you – but there are certain parts your masseuse won’t touch, of course. Let your partner carry on with the rest. You’ve earned it!

At a spa, you can eat all the fresh fruit you want, usually. Put those mean greens back into your hot bodies and feel as pampered on the inside as you do outside. You know what happens when you feel good? You want to spread the love, that’s what. Your partner won’t know what’s hit them. 

The charming Ilsington Country House Hotel is offering one lucky Mills and Boon fan and partner the chance at all of this, not to mention a perfect post-Christmas detox!

Surrounded by the heather-clad rolling hills of dramatic Dartmoor, the picturesque hotel has it all and with this prize you’ll get to escape to the hotel’s gorgeous new spa facility, which features the renowned Spanish Inbeca equipment and offers a hydrotherapy pool plus sauna and steam room all bathed in romantic mood lighting with relaxing music and exquisite aromas. Need to burn off the Crimbo carbs? There is also a new Lifefitness gym to, an indoor swimming pool and poolside shower with a Kubel Dusche for cooling down.

For an extra special treat, the winner can add a luxurious spa treatment ranging from back, neck and shoulder massage to an Indian Head massage and reflexology.

After an afternoon of R&R, the winner and guest will enjoy a glass of chilled Champagne in front of the roaring log fire and tuck into a sumptuous Celebration Cream Tea brimming with delicious homemade scones, finger sandwiches and flapjack.

This idyllic hotel is perfect for a relaxing staycation. Guests can pop on their walking boots and take in the National Park’s stunning and dramatic countryside. There are a plethora of stunning walks straight from the Ilsington’s doorstep, plus Bovey Tracey, the ‘Gateway to the Moor’ is only a 10-minute drive from the hotel.

Indulge in award-winning food at the two AA rosette restaurant or enjoy a superb but informal meal in the bistro-style Blue Tiger Inn. Both offer creative menus using high quality fresh, local produce and the property’s skilled chefs even smoke their own fish and range of meats.
