I’ve always thought blogging is awesome, but I think it reached a new level of awesome on Friday. The day before, I answered a last minute #PRRequest on Twitter calling out for a blogger and their bestie to experience a spa day in the New Forest for #NationalBestFriendsDay, I answered it and before I knew it, my mum and I were booked in for a treatment at Beauty h in Hoburne Bashley, New Forest. Wow!
Hoburne Bashley Holiday Park is situated just outside of the glorious New Forest, Hampshire close by to some of the south’s best beaches in Bournemouth. It is about a 30-40 minute drive from Southampton and pretty easy to find. There is so much to see and do, from swimming, exploring nature trails, adventure golf, hot tubs and saunas… but first it was time for some much needed relaxation with Beauty h.
My mum and I felt like celebrities when we arrived at Beauty h. The ladies were so friendly, warm and welcoming, offering us drinks and telling us all about the treatment we were about to receive. We were asked to complete a form and my mum’s answers made me chuckle.
We were given plenty of time to change and get ready for our pamper session. Everything was so luxurious and professional and we knew straight away we were in good hands. I had a peak at the products and saw they used Elemis which I’ve heard only good things about from my beauty blogger friends!
We were treated to a blissful Freestyle Deep Tissue Massage for an hour. This is the ultimate in full body massage as it is tailored entirely to your needs and works to relieve stress and muscle pain. It was a wonderful hour which we didn’t want to end, the oils were super calming and the ladies were experts in knowing exactly which areas needed attention. I felt both relaxed and recharged, my mum even commented that she felt like a totally different person.
You can get a whole range of different treatments here such as massages, body scrubs, facials, waxing, pedicures, manicures, tanning and detoxes. They have special pregnancy massages and pamper day packages too. Check out the full list of Beauty h treatments here.
After the hour of pure bliss, our experience was not over yet as we were welcomed into the relaxation room. One of the ladies brought us a cup of tea each and invited us to relax and chill out for as long as we wanted. We had the whole room to ourselves which was awesome. I’m loving those egg chairs!

You can help yourself to a variety of different teas and coffees whilst you are taking it easy.
Feelin’ refreshed and relaxed and ready for the day (of more relaxing).
Just as we were about to leave, we were both given an Elemis goodie bag! Exciting! Now I was really feeling like a celebrity with my new posh beauty products. I am definitely looking forward to using these, they look amazing and smell gorgeous! Thank you Beauty h!
Beauty h have recently launched their own lunches menu too. We were kindly gifted food vouchers and went straight on to the cafe to place our orders. I picked the Crispy Crumb Vegetable Burger with baby gem lettuce, red onion, sliced tomato, traditional burger relish and French fries. Yum!
Mum ordered the classic Beer Battered Fish & Chips with garden peas, French fries, lemon and tartar sauce which she thoroughly enjoyed.
Who can say no to more tea and Rocky Road? Not me!
After lunch we went exploring our surroundings, firstly stopping in the amusement arcade for a quick gamble on the 2p machines.
We were impressed at how clean and spotless the facilities were. There is an indoor leisure pool and heated outdoor swimming and paddling pools (mid-May to mid-September). A sauna, steam room and fitness suite as well as an indoor soft play area and outdoor adventure playground.
My mum even had a go on the swing, although I wish I had a video camera as I probably could have got £250 on You’ve Been Framed for this clip.
Oh yes! Who doesn’t love a game of Adventure Golf! There is so much to keep the whole family entertained here, from football and basketball courts, table tennis, pool, Sky Sports, children’s entertainment, free WiFi, nature trails and so much more!
If Adventure Golf has got you feeling adventurous, then you can pick up a map and go exploring the stunning and peaceful New Forest. Don’t be surprised if you see a horse or twenty on your travels.
As there is so much to see and do here, we could have easily spent longer than a day here. This is probably why Hoburne is also a 100-acre Holiday Park with tons of accommodation from the affordable to the luxury.
We were lucky enough to have a tour of one of their gorgeous caravans which just made me wish I could spend longer here staying in this stunning home.
There are seven Hoburne Holiday Parks dotted around in Dorset, Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Cotswold, Hampshire and this one in the New Forest. So whether you want to treat yourself to a spa day with Beauty h or book yourself a relaxing getaway, Hoburne have got you covered. My mum and I had a fantastic day here for #NationalBestFriendsDay and felt super pampered and looked after. Thank you to the wonderful team at Beauty h and all the helpful staff at Hoburne for making our experience such an enjoyable one! <3
