“For the past twenty years Rosanne and I have shared a dream that has now become a reality. Woodbury Park is a very special place. Situated in 500 acres of Devon`s most idyllic countryside, we provide the ultimate standards of accommodation and cuisine with exceptional spa, golf, leisure, banqueting and conference facilities. Where, world-class facilities and seamless service blend with the renowned warmth and hospitality of the West Country. My wife Rosanne and I love being here.å” Nigel Mansell.
Owned by Nigel Mansell, Woodbury Park, is a four-star hotel set in the heart of Devon, close to the beach and 20 minutes from Exeter. The retreat has recently introduced its Time to Relax package - a blissful break that costs from £200 per room per night and includes bed and breakfast, a gourmet dinner, massage, manicure and use of all the spa and leisure facilities.
Another very popular package is the Champagne Day, where groups arrive to use the sauna, swimming pool and Jacuzzi before enjoying a champagne lunch in the conservatory. This costs £100 per person and beauty treatments are also available.
Woodbury`s facilities include a stunningly designed 20-m pool, sauna suite, spa, aerobics studio, and fully equipped gym, as well as tennis and squash courts, plus private sports tuition. Experts will also supervise health screening and personal fitness programmes. Also at hand are resident masseurs and beauty therapists, fully qualified to pamper and relax with a whole host of treatments ranging from spa therapies, aromatherapy and body scrubs, to slimming wraps, waxing and facials.
The golf here is very good and there is a live webcam to the 18th on the Woodbury Park website. This magnificent championship par 72 course is set in stunning tree and lake studded parkland, with rolling fairways and European standard greens. For the less experienced, the Acorns course presents a realistic challenge. Brush up your technique on the practice ground and driving range, or book in for some PGA tuition. Then relax in the luxurious Clubhouse
