Situated in the pastoral New Forest in Hampshire, The Lime Wood spa, The Herb House breathes relaxation and simplicity from its roof-top herb garden down to its wooden floor boards to the all-round fragrance of lavender, rosemary and thyme. The spa designers have tried their best and succeeded in delivering an out-of the-box spa experience, it quite literally tears down walls and puts up glass windows so that you can take in the forest views from the sauna and 16 metre lap-pool. The steaming hot tub looks like a bubbling natural spring caged in wooden decking. The rooftop herbs of course also go into the food at their Raw & Cured restaurant which serves up fresh vegetarian delights such as a tomato and date salad but also cured meat from their own ‘Smoke House’. The epitome of laid-back luxury and a natural invigorating experience.
The Lime Wood’s Herb House has been nominated this year for the National Luxury & Lifestyle Awards in the luxury spas category. You can vote for them from the 19th of July 2014 here.
