There are few places in the world like Champneys at Tring. Steeped in history, this elegant English stately home was opened as a health farm in 1925 by the celebrated natropath Stanley Lief, who pioneered the concept of holistic well-being. Today, Tring remains true to those roots - it is an outstanding health resort in the very heart of Hertfordshire, dedicated to the well-being of your mind, your body, your soul. And who wouldn't flourish here? Set in 170 acres of rolling parkland, a spa day at Tring will still your thoughts in a busy world. Little wonder it tops the A-list hot-list for rest and relaxation.
A £14million refurbishment is complete, including a state-of-the-art gym and cardio-fitness theatre. Yet the Rothschild Mansion retains a delicious hint of history: take tea, perhaps in the graceful Drawing Room, perfect your snooker in the Games Room, roam the manicured grounds before an invigorating swim in the new 25-metre pool. After a yoga or pilates class, flake out with a good book in the warm comfort of your room.
