I went away to Rushton hall for a few days and it was beautiful!! Its by Kettering in Northamptonshire and in the middle of 12 acres of land, it was so serene.
Rushton hall is now a hotel and spa but was previously home to Guy Fawkes and where the gun powder plot was..plotted! The hotel suite was so grand but homely at the same time (if you go there ask for the Pickering Phipps suite) we had our own living room and the bedroom was huge not to mention the bathroom with a shower and a free standing bathtub!
The spa was amidst all the tranquility, with the glass windows surrounding the pool you can watch the deer and rabbits hopping around while you take a dip. The elemis treatments on offer were sublime and the whole place seemed charged with this natural energy and engraved with historic pearls.
We took our trekking boots and braved the weather to enjoy the simply breathtaking views, I was actually pretty happy about the snow as the lakes with the floating ice islands added to the picturesque scenery
