Win a luxury spa break in Essex worth 1260

We’ve teamed up with Lifehouse Spa & Hotel to take two lucky readers and a guest each on a fantastic, relaxing getaway in the heart of the tranquil Essex countryside.

During a two-night stay at Lifehouse, you’ll enjoy spa pampering and relaxation from the moment you arrive. For starters, this great prize includes a 55-minute full-body massage, a half-hour facial and a Reiki session with the spa’s in-house specialist. What’s more, a delicious, full-board healthy menu – which includes detox and cleansing, and fitness and weight-loss dishes – is on offer throughout your stay. Revitalising hot water and lemon is also delivered to guests’ rooms each morning, with a healthy hot chocolate at night to aid restful sleep.

Why not de-stress on a private tour of the 12-acre English Heritage-listed gardens? Or if you like to unwind with a spot of exercise, you’ll enjoy full access to a comprehensive activity schedule – and with over 50 classes to choose from each week, there’s something for everyone.

To finish, take it easy in an expansive thermal spa, which features a large swimming pool, plunge pool, sauna, salt inhalation and steam rooms, and a hydropool – wonderful indulgence.

This competition is now closed.
