Lucknam takes hand delivery of Good Spa Award

Single Spy loved Lucknam when she visited. And particularly her seared scallops. That's why Lucknam both featured in and then WON our category for "the most delicious spa" in the 2010 Good Spa Awards.

Sybaritic Spy is just on a helter-skelter tour of spas in the west country and popped into Lucknam to hand over their winner's certificate in person to Rachel from sales and Lucy, head therapist.

What Sybaritic Spy thought about Lucknam:

"Lucknam is simply lovely. The spa is brilliant... and so it should be since they spent £16 million on it and it's only been open 18 months or so. The roof above the pool is stunning: curved glass double-layered with heaters inside to keep up the air temperature. At night, each row of heaters is a different colour so the roof has a rainbow effect. There is a fire wall on one side of the pool so you can swim alongside the flames! All very cool."

Single Spy gives the background:

"Lucknam Park has two restaurants: the established, Michelin-starred restaurant, The Park, in the main hotel and the less formal Brasserie in the new spa building. This features its own wood-fired oven. Alongside the more traditional dishes on the menu, including fresh plaice and local rib-eye steak, The Brasserie at Lucknam Park also offers a Healthy Corner menu for spa-goers looking for a lighter way to indulge. Try marinated smoked salmon with spiced aubergine, or lemon and ginger poached chicken with mango and avocado yoghurt and poppy-seed dressing.."
