Foxhills, Surrey - Girls Night Away

Being a Mum and having a busy life is great, but now and again I think its really important to take some time out for yourself which is exactly what I done the weekend just gone.  My friend Ana and I fancied going for a nice relaxing night away (child free) just to chill. catch up and have some girlie time so we searched online for local (ish) Spa places to stay.  We didn't really have the budget to have treatments included in our stay but wanted somewhere where we could use the facilities, pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, gym etc.  After looking on Booking.com I came across Foxhills Club and Resort which is located in Surrey home to a beautiful 19th Century Manor House and only a 30 minute drive from where I live.  I had visited Foxhills many years ago when my Dad hosted a Freemasons dinner party there, I remember the food being amazing and the venue was lovely, I wasn't lucky enough to stay overnight at the time but always did want to go back.




So we booked for the Saturday to stay overnight, check in was 2pm but I rang Foxhills reception to see if we could check in earlier which was not a problem if the room was ready, the receptionist told me if it wasn't then we were more than welcome to use the facilities and leave our bags with them which was great.

So finding the location was super easy, as I said previously its only a 30 minute drive from me so we got the trust Google maps on and headed there just after lunchtime.

Our room wasn't quite ready so we headed to the spa/gym area, put our bags in a locker and headed up to the gym for a workout.  The gym facilities were great, gym was a good size, and quite empty so we didn't have to wait to use the machines if we wanted to.  We done our own floor workout which felt great as I hadn't had a good workout for a while and wanted to get back into exercising.  After our workout we headed back to the hotel reception to collect our room key as we had booked to have Afternoon Tea at the Nineteen restaurant for 3pm.  







Our room was great, super spacious, clean, the bathroom was massive and we had our own robes to wear which was really nice and super easy to pop to the spa or outdoor pool without having to take a change of clothes.  We had separate beds which were so comfy, TV was a great size and tucked away in a cabinet, along with the mini bar! Which we didn't use.  We had tea and coffee facilities which was great as I love a good old cuppa!  Our room was located right near the tennis courts and outdoor pool, and we had a lovely little woodland track just out the back of our door (perfect for our Sunday morning run we had planned)









We headed to the Nineteen restaurant for our Afternoon Tea which we were really looking forward to and we super hungry after our workout.  The Afternoon Tea menu sounded amazing for £12.50 you got a pot of tea, two fresh warm scones, clotted cream, strawberry jam, cake of the day ours was cheesecake & finger sandwiches.  I loved everything about the afternoon tea apart from the mouldy bread I was served for my tuna sandwiches.  I told a member of staff who sorted it quickly and offered to replace anything I had they took both Afternoon Teas off of our bill.  The only thing I was disappointed with was the fact that the staff member came back out and told us that the bread was fresh from that morning.  I can tell you now that the bread was not fresh at all, it was hard around the edges and at the bottom, you know that feel you get when the bread starts to go stale.  For a 4* location I was quite disappointed.







After tea we went to chill out by the outdoor pool which was super relaxing and the weather was lovely for it.

We were heading back to Nineteen that evening for dinner so were both hoping that everything would taste fresh this time and we weren't disappointed, dinner was lovely and fresh we both really enjoyed our meals.  We also had a cocktail in the Manor Lounge which was lovely.

We headed back to our room around 9.30pm as we planned to wake up early the next morning and go for a run, so had our tea and a great nights uninterrupted sleep.  





Sunday we headed off in the morning for a run, found a random play area to have a quick workout and headed for breakfast in The Manor Lounge (which was included in our stay) Breakfast was delicious, I went for scrambled eggs, mushroom and fruit. 




After brekkie we headed to the outdoor Spa!  This was my favourite part of my stay, we wanted to use the Natural pool but that was closed so we headed into the outdoor Jacuzzi which was like heaven, Sunday morning relaxing with lovely hot weather in a bubbling Jacuzzi what more could we want.  We also used the steam room and finished off with a cool outdoor shower.  The indoor pool is massive and they also have an indoor Jacuzzi which we tried out before we left.










I left Foxhills feeling super relaxed, its such a beautiful place to stay and I would love to go back (for treatments next time) They have great facilities for a relaxing stay, or if you are a keen golfer then its the perfect place to go.  

The only thing I was disappointed in my stay was the mouldy bread for Afternoon Tea and on the Sunday morning there was a nappy sack full of nappies dumped outside the main entrance of where we were staying!
