A couple of years ago I became a member of the local spa, I only really use it for the pool. Towards the end of my pregnancy I let my membership lapse. After Christmas I decided to renew it.
A six month membership at Clumber Park Hotel and Spa is currently £225 for 6 months.
If I went to the local pool 3 times a week which I aim to do it would cost £343 for 6 months.
With the added bonus of being able to use the gym facilities and children being able to swim for free from 4pm – 6pm.
The spa pool as a member is open to me from 7am – 9pm 7 days a week.
The public pool has set times that you can swim due to school using it and lessons happening.
I love going swimming at the spa, when you arrive you are greeted by the delicious smell of essential oils, and the sound of relaxing music playing in the background.
I grab a towel. As a member I get to borrow their freshly laundered fluffy towels.
Head to the changing rooms that have under floor heating and again has relaxing music playing in the background.
Once changed I head to the pool take a pool side shower and head for my swim.
I never commit myself to timing lengths or counting lengths. I just swim. Sometimes I swim with no thoughts. Other days I swim and plan my perfect day or plan my week / day.
I went yesterday and after my swim I decided to have 10 mins in the outdoor hot tub.
While I was there a squirrel sat about 2 meters away from me eating.
It’s great at Clumber surrounded by trees with just enough gaps in them to let the sun beam down on sunny days.
There is also a sauna & steam room but I’m not really a fan of those.
On a weekend I often take a little more time when daddy has the kids and have a cuppa in the cafe bar after my swim. I Sit in one of the sofas in a snug area.
I’m totally the spa fan. It’s great for my wellbeing.
