A haybarn spa in Knightsbridge? That can't be right. Add the word Bamford in there (as in Lady Bamford who founded the luxe lifestyle brand) and it starts to make more sense. So – where does the haybarn come in?
My therapist began by warning me that this particular massage can sometimes bring out emotion due to its effect on the energy channels in the body. Did I come out crying? No. Did I feel revitalised? Yes.
After a quick footbath, the back massage that followed felt a little intense after a day at the office, but by the time the therapist had started working on the pressure points in my feet and legs, I was in heaven. (And I don't usually let anyone touch my feet).
I was refreshed and in the beautiful Bamford-esque surroundings – I had escaped from the city below me. Before I left, the therapist invited me up to the spa's spectacular rooftop pool. Unfortunately it was raining so I stayed tucked up in the haybarn for a bit longer. It didn't matter. Who needs to trek to the Cotswolds when there's a little piece of it already in London?
