Herb House at Lime Wood
In the heart of the New Forest, at the captivating Lime Wood hotel, lies the Herb House; a three storey destination spa dedicated to natural wellbeing that has, without question, significantly raised the bar for destination spas around the world. Inspired by its forest surroundings the Herb House naturally invites a sense of calm and serenity bringing clients the ultimate rejuvenating retreat.
Set over three floors the spa has ten spacious treatment rooms including two double signature rooms - The Bath House with an indoor double bath and private steam room, and The Bath Garden with an outdoor double bath and private steam room - and eight further single treatment rooms. The treat in store continues with hot pools, thermal rooms (the massive Forest Sauna, The Steam House, The Mud House, a Caldarium), the Hands and Feet Room for manicures and pedicures, and private soak baths in changing rooms that feel like decadent bedroom suites fit for royalty. The Herb House goes on…. there’s a state-of-the-art roof top gym with forest views and the very latest in Technogym equipment, a 16 metre Ozone treated indoor lap pool with retracting glass doors to the garden and a workout studio offering fabulous classes from Body Pump to Zumba; Yoga to Tai Chi.
Beyond the gym is the Herbery which is a beautiful roof garden that truly consolidates the forest experience. Filled with fragrant herbs, including a mintarium, these herbs and their fragrances are incorporated into as many of the spa treatments as possible. With such a tranquil and at-one backdrop, The Herbery provides the dream setting for meditation and reflection. Home-grown herbs are used in creations made at Raw & Cured which offers delicious, natural and organic food including freshly made salads, sushi and items from Lime Wood’s Smoke House.
The Herb House is the first spa to offer Bamford spa treatments outside of the original Gloucestershire ‘Hay Barn’ spa. Other British brands being used are renowned Irish seaweed spa brand Voya, natural skincare brand NUDE and Ayurvedic specialists Tri Dosha.
Central to the spa is the Herb House’s life style assessment program where the team offers practical advice to clients to help them feel better for longer. Treatments start from the moment guests step into the spa and continue long after they’ve left with regular follow up calls from their personal therapist.
Signature treatments include:
Forest Escapes - a 30 minute consultation with your therapist to establish your body type and ‘dosha’. Once recognized, an Ayurvedic therapy is selected from the four choices – Harmonise, Revitalise, Release, or Ease - to suit the needs for that day, leaving guests with a grander, fuller vision of themselves.
