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.
What's more, they've just released details of their summer deals.
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).
There are also family deals, short breaks and Sunday night offers. See them all at The Mere Resort's Summer offers.
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.
