Its time to think about a stress cure

Farmlife is heading for the health farm again!

Come and join us for a

revitalising break

YES, it is the time of year to think about booking our annual Farmlife breaks at Springs Health Hydro (Wed, Nov 12-Sat, Nov 15) and Henlow Grange Health Farm (Sun, Nov 23-Wed, Nov 26).

Whether you need a restorative after harvest, a treat to set you up for the rigours of winter, or just an energiser to cope with the run up to Christmas, Springs and Henlow are the places to go.

If these reasons arent enough to justify treating yourself, then a hint or two to your loved ones just might persuade them to club together to make it an early Christmas present.

But really, as readers who regularly join us will vouch, there is no need for an excuse. The sheer stress-busting relaxation of turning off from every day pressures to enjoy a little pampering, or the buzz of turning on to fitness through the choice of classes, swimming pool and gym, are reasons enough.

Springs Hydro is a superb modern health farm with extensive facilities set amid Leicestershire farmland at Packington, near Ashby de La Zouche. Friendly staff and an informal atmosphere make it great place to unwind or tone up.

The main house at Henlow Grange is a Georgian mansion which stands in more than 40ha (100 acres) of Bedfordshire parkland. It has more than 300 trained staff to meet guests individual requirements, making it Britains largest health farm.

Both offer a host of facilities, classes and treatments without any pressure to choose them. You, the guest, set the pace of your stay.

Our Farmlife offer is open to all readers aged 18 years or more. Check-in is from 2pm on the arrival date and guests must leave by 4pm on the departure date at both venues.

Whether you choose the Georgian elegance of Henlow Grange, (top two pictures) or the modern style of Springs Hydro (left) you will find the same high standards of comfort and treatments.
