Champneys Forest Mere

An award-winning spa retreat, for anyone who craves those true luxuries, peace & privacy.


Set on a 150-acre wooded estate overlooking a serene lake, the Champneys Forest Mere offers a tranquil, secluded atmosphere. With 89 guest rooms, and catering to guests looking to combine rejuvenation and relaxation in England's south coastal countryside.
Guests can indulge in an array of beauty and holistic therapies, including the signature Rasul mud ritual, followed by a dip in the thalassotherapy pool, the first in the U.K. Additional on-site amenities include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a tennis court, alternative health clinic, and various fitness classes ranging from high energy to meditative. Only nutritious cuisine is served at the resort restaurant.


The 200-square-meter spa has 43 treatment rooms and boasts the U.K.'s first thalassotherapy pool. Additional spa facilities include a sauna, steam room, mud treatment areas, and separate men's and women's locker rooms.

The spa menu blends holistic and beauty treatments such as reflexology, shiatsu, facials, and microdermabrasion using Champneys, Elemis, Babor, and Bare Escentuals products. Additional offerings include invigorating salt and citrus scrubs, slimming and firming wraps, and nail, waxing, hair, and makeup services; guests can also unwind with palmistry, hypnotherapy, and numerology therapies at the Alternative Health Clinic. The spa's Rasul chamber, in which guests can apply purifying muds while basking in therapeutic steam, is a popular fixture for individuals and couples.
