The 7 Best Spa Breaks in Cornwall

Who would have thought I would be very much into spa breaks. Whether that be a full-on spa holiday, a weekend spa break or even just an afternoon relaxing in the spa. Well after our spa afternoon at China Fleet country club earlier in the year, then enjoying the spa facilities at Bluestone in September, I can honestly say (as a non swimmer!) I love being in the water baths, hot tub, and sauna rooms. Not quite so sure on the ice rooms though! So I thought I would share with you some of the best spa breaks in the Cornwall. I can’t wait for my next spa mini-break. Hint Hint Mr B!
