Recently I took a 2 night visit to Grayshott Spa with the intention of unwinding, eating healthy food and carrying on with a series of measures to increase my fitness and wellbeing. With an easy train ride from my home in Putney to Haslemere train station, it is then just a short taxi ride into the Surrey Hills to find this beautiful old historic country house, containing 59 bedrooms and 36 treatment rooms, 47 acres of gardens and grounds and adjoining 700 acres of National Trust land.

Though you are in a hotel there is wonderful homely feel with gives a relaxed feel possibly inspired by a previous occupant, Victorian Poet Laureate, Lord Alfred Tennyson.

With my bags taken to my, regal bedroom looking over the crocket lawn I had lunch. Here they use the ‘Grayshott Healthy Eating Plate©’ which defines the quantity of food types per meal into the recommended three categories: fibre, fat and protein. One note if you after wiz bang technology this is not the place for you, for me however the peace and tranquillity was wonderful, reminding me of my mother and childhood, “ psychoanalysts start making notes!” I liked this very simple approach that made you think about what you eat. They believe that healthy eating should be based on ‘inspiration not deprivation’. Key to the policy is portion control, rather than the ‘old-fashioned’ method of calorie counting. The sitting room is old fashionable and charming and relaxing, the swimming pool modern with beautiful views over the lawns, and the idea of having a cinema a really nice touch.

All of these things one way or another make you slow down and breath mmmm.

Walking across the golf course and through a small section of woodland you enter a huge sway of National Trust land with signposted walks. This heather clad landscape is not only easy walking but stunning and peaceful.

You can choose from a whole host of treatments or take part in many sporting activities led by a former Olympian, and recommended is a Body Composition Analysis test to determine your lean body mass and fat percentage, followed by an assessment of your muscular strength, flexibility and aerobic fitness.

Choose from yoga, pilates, personal training, daily exercise classes, swimming, tennis, a par 3, 9-hole golf course, hydrotherapy pools and power walking.

Having spent 2 nights of peace they had a car driven by Martin to take me to the station…

To give you an idea of what others think I had ear wigged on some other guests in relation to their thoughts and met a lovely couple who had been coming back for 30 years and were nothing but full of praise.

Very English, very classy and very relaxing mmmmm
