Stratford Spa Weekend

Sarah Smith on 08 June 2013
Once in a while you have to treat yourself. With friends in London and friends in Yorkshire, Stratford upon Avon was the ideal place to 'meet in the middle' for a girly treat weekend.

The McDonald Alveston Manor was our chosen retreat. Located perfectly by the river and a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of the summer street markets and the shops, cafes, bars and bistros of this busy tourist haven.

We booked a spa package through UK specialist Superbreak where chocolates, champagne, robes and relaxation are on the menu. The staff were extremely special, especially the spa ladies who were chatty but very professional, and also made us feel relaxed and pampered.

Dinner was served quickly and efficiently and a nice choice on the fixed menu. I can highly recommend the dark chocolate marquise with pistachio sauce, yummy!
