Yoga, Bootcamp and Tree Houses – The Next Retreat

Where? Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa, our tree house accommodation pictured above.

Exactly? Hampshire in the UK, a 2 hour train journey or drive out of London.

Why? Next clothing, the British high street retailer, has just launched a fantastic new active wear range called the NX Sports collection. The range includes swimwear, yoga, sports and fitness pieces.

To celebrate the launch Next invited me and a group of journalists and bloggers out the Chewton Glen Spa for a luxury sports retreat to test the performance and styles of the collection.

The hydro jet circuit is the perfect way to unwind at the end of a hectic day. Indoor and outdoor jacuzzi, hot tubs and hot jets target varied parts of the body and steam rooms and saunas complete the spa experience.

The Tree Houses

As well as the exclusive spa one of the main reasons people come to Chewton Glen is to stay in the incredible tree houses. These rooms are the ultimate in luxury, a grand circular bedroom is connected to a separate living room and kitchen via a glass walkway/ viewing platform.

So much so I barely wanted to leave the room. It would be great for a romantic weekend away as well as girly retreat.

Yoga Stretch with Cat Meffan

After our bootcamp session we were treated to a delicious warm down and stretch yoga session with the stunning yogi @CatMeffan. Here she is on the beach wearing Next’s new active sportswear leggings and bra top. She is truly an inspiration.

Pre dinner and post a full body massage treatment I couldn’t resist having another well earned relaxation session back at the hydrotherapy pools. Obsessed!

After all that exercise we all sat down to a delicious, healthy four course dinner in the summer house dining rooms. Pictured above – my salmon starter.
