THE idea of escaping the city for a luxury pampering break appeals to just about every woman we know, and a fair number of men too.

It's got everything you could want from a weekend break or spa day.

The Mere Resort is, we think, the closest countryside spa resort to Manchester at just a 30 minute drive from the city centre in the rolling parkland surrounding Knutsford. It's got everything you could want from a weekend break or spa day: a gorgeous, lakeside setting, sumptuous hotel rooms with fluffy gowns and slippers, and award-winning facilities. There's also a championship golf course and three places to eat in the resort, including the two AA-rosette restaurant, Browns.

The first one to catch our eye is the £99 spa day, which includes a glass of fizz on arrival, a 50-minute Mere signature facial, a file and polish, afternoon tea in the Spa Lounge & Bar, and a £10 gift card to spend in The Spa Boutique. You'll also have full use of the spa's facilities, which include a 20m indoor pool and a Thermal Zone with steam, sauna, and hot rooms.

This is the perfect treat for a birthday or to give yourself some time out. Their other deals range from a champagne afternoon tea (£23 per person) to a summer golf green fee (£60 per person on selected dates) to a girls night in including an overnight stay, breakfast, prosecco, a manicure, in-room dining, full use of the spa facilities and a choice of movie (£105 per person).

Whichever one you choose you're in for some much-deserved relaxation and escapism. And the good thing is, it's not too far away for a return visit.
