Not only is the The Grange at Hewish a great venue to have a marquee reception for your wedding, but nesting in one of the refurbished barns is Debbie Locke’s Health & Beauty Spa
I can remember when the barn was used as a cow shed. Almost a decade later and with The Grange’s award winning diversification, one of the barns houses Debbie Locke’s beautiful Health and Beauty Spa. The Grange was recognised for its sympathetic and eco-friendly approach winning the Green Apple Award for environmental best practice, Green Champion Farming & Agricultural. (The Green Apple is an internationally recognised environmental award.) A relaxing setting for the Spa, inside the stone barn building you can’t help but admire the original oak beams.
I recently paid a visit to Debbie Locke’s salon, and was greeted by the very welcoming Debbie. Debbie Locke is a highly experienced and well qualified beauty therapist (BABTAC) with over 25 years experience in the industry. She employs four very skilled beauty therapists and works with two hair stylists. The salon was located in Cadbury House Country Club for over 12 years before moving to The Grange in December 2005; the business itself has been in existence for more than 20 years. Facilities at the salon include; a Spa Pool, Finnish Sauna, Aromatherapy Thermal Cabin, Dining , Changing Rooms, Showers, Relaxation areas and six treatments rooms, plus a specialised colonic hydrotherapy treatment room.
The salon offers a wide range of health and beauty services ranging from Top To Toe, Spa Days and Pamper Days to Manicures, Pedicures, Reflexology, Massage, Tanning, the list goes on.
Whilst chatting to Debbie before I knew it I’d been persuaded to try the Garra Rufa Fish Pedicure. This involves the little fish sucking and gently nibbling away at dry and dead skin. The end result is said to leave your feet feeling refreshed and healthy, I can vouch for that, my feet felt a bit lighter and defiantly smoother. It was a bit of a shock at first and quite an odd sensation. Finished off with a relaxing foot massage, what a treat!
There are a range of treatments to choose from at Debbie Locke’s. It’s perfect for group bookings with a range of packages, great for Hen Dos. There are also packages for wedding day make up & manicures. The Bridal Service includes a practice make-up and make-up on the day with a french manicure included. Using the latest range of make-up from Jane Iredale, “Beauty with Benefits”. Hair styling is available on request.
The place to go for pre pampering treatments or for help getting ready on the day of your wedding. If you are staying at The Grange B & B, or having your wedding at The Grange it couldn’t be easier, the salon’s only a hop away. Final words? “Come and see us at The Grange for a really enjoyable and thoroughly relaxing experience.”
