Why not treat yourself with a visit to a spa where you can relax, unwind and indulge in some therapies for the body and soul. Whether you fancy a whole weekend away, a couple of hours of treatment or want to combine all that relaxation with a different type of indulgence – like an afternoon tea – there is something for everyone . . . and you don’t have to travel outside Norfolk either.


If you want to combine a beauty treatment with a swim and then a spot of lunch or afternoon tea, head to La Fontana at Sprowston Manor Hotel, near Norwich.

Choose from a selection of treatments, including body wraps, body scrubs, facials and massages. Enjoy your day by the pool – take a swim, read your EDP Norfolk magazine poolside and take advantage of the sauna and steam room.
