Bamford Haybarn Spa launches at The Berkeley

NEWS: A new Bamford Haybarn Spa has launched at the Berkeley Health Club, situated on the 7th floor of The Berkeley in London’s Knightsbridge. The aim is to bring a slice of the countryside to the city spa. This is the first city venture for the Bamford Haybarn which launched in Daylesford in Gloucestershire. The Bamford Body Collection which features natural and organic ingredients will be utilised in many of the treatments. British brand OSKIA has been invited to create facials for the spa in this luxurious setting. If you like a good massage, the newly created Bamford Body Signature Treatment combines shiatsu, meridian and Swedish techniques with reflexology and yogic breathing. There is a new spa food menu and keeping it all very British you can enjoy a glass of Chapel Down wine, from Tenterden in Kent. At The Berkeley you will also find a refurbished rooftop pool with relaxation beds and amazing city views and fitness centre.
