Win an overnight stay for 2 at Champney’s


April is the time for fresh starts and new beginnings! Spring has sprung and we’re getting all kinds of broody as we start to notice the blossoming nature around us. If you’re expecting, then this is the prize for you – and even if you’re not, but just need a bit of a life spring clean then entering this competition is a step in the right direction, after all what says cleansing the year away more than a foot rub?

The Champneys venues are famed for their pioneering edge and state of the art facilities. The health spas know a thing or two about the world of pampering, so you’re in safe hands (and stunning grounds) at all of their venues. What could be better than winning an overnight break there? Your one night’s stay would include a specialist treatment, use of facilities, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

As this is our month of new beginnings, there is also an option to choose a fantastic pre-natal treatment involving a foot soak, back massage, and collagen boosting body mask, all of which culminates in a relieving foot, leg, and scalp massage. Sounds pretty blissful. If you are pregnancy free, don’t get discouraged, there are treatments available for you too, as well as a thoroughly enjoyable visit. So… What’s stopping you?
