Cheshire definitely has its perks – acres of rolling countryside, Manchester on the doorstep…and when it comes to a spa day, you’re pretty much spoilt for choice. Mottram Hall is just a 10 minute drive from Macclesfield and a 40 minute drive from my home turf of Chester, so it’s super simple to reach (and if you avoid the M56, the drive there is pretty spectacular).
I was invited to Mottram Hall for the day by Spa Seekers, who are spa booking specialists, and the day included a tour of the hall, access to the spa, a consultation with Colour Me Beautiful, a makeup workshop with Chloe Johnson, and to top it all off, a delicious afternoon tea in the Mottram Hall restaurant. You can’t really beat spending your Saturday like that, can you?
The day started with a glass of Bucks Fizz and a colour consultation with image consultants Colour Me Beautiful. I’d never heard of such a service before, so I was really intrigued to learn about colour and choosing the right shades that would suit my skin tone to help me choose better clothes. If it’s got anything to do with shopping, I’m all ears. I was defined as a Soft Dominant, meaning that tone-on-tone works best for me and that I need to avoid very vibrant colours – which as a girl who always wears monochrome, is pretty easy instruction for me to follow!
We then had our makeup tutorial with makeup artist Chloe Johnson, who showed us an easy day-to-night makeup look with MAC, Laura Mercier and Hourglass products. We then followed that up with our afternoon tea in the Carrington Grill restaurant. Everything was so delicious and the service was amazing from all of the staff – if you go for afternoon tea I’d ask for a second round of scones if I were you!
The day was finished off with a couple of hours relaxing in the spa. I’ve been to quite a few spas around Cheshire now and Mottram’s is at the very top of my list – the outdoor space means there’s so much more to explore and everything overlooks the stunning grounds. The jacuzzis are a definite highlight and we stayed in there as long as we could.
So if you’re looking for a super relaxing spa day in a peaceful and stunning venue, Mottram Hall is the one I’d choose every time.
