Le Chameau in the field: A day at the Bamford Haybarn Spa

With International Women’s Day soon approaching, Mother’s Day around the corner, and the centenary of voting rights for women being celebrated across the UK, there’s no better time to celebrate motherhood and the amazing women in our lives. With this in mind, Le Chameau invited a group of women to enjoy a day out together, treating them to a fun-filled day in the heart of the Cotswolds. Bamford Haybarn Spa, located at Daylesford Organic Farm, was chosen as the perfect location, combining beautiful scenic walks, local, seasonal farm produce and a wellness retreat. Lou and her daughter Sasha, Gemma and her mother-in-law Jane, and Aimee and her mother Pam met at the Daylesford Farm shop to begin the day. After admiring the beautiful floral arrangements in the Daylesford Garden shop and chatting to the passionate team of florists, the women headed to the Bamford Haybarn Spa where they were warmly greeted with fluffy bathrobes, slippers and restorative juices. With natural sunlight pouring through the windows, soft wood finishes and muted tones, Bamford Haybarn Spa is the perfect setting for relaxation and well-being. Our mother and daughter group were treated to manicures, massages and pedicures by the highly-skilled therapists at the Spa, using products from the Bamford Bath & Body Collection. Made in England from natural and, where possible, organic ingredients, all products are certified to the highest standard by the Soil Association. Once pampered and thoroughly relaxed, the women were then invited for lunch at the award-winning Daylesford café, serving dishes using organic ingredients sourced directly from the Daylesford organic farm. After lunch, and with the late-February sunshine starting to appear from behind the clouds, our group of women were ready for their guided walk around the Daylesford Estate. With a selection of country walks to choose from, the group set off on Daylesford Farm Walk 2, through muddy fields, winding country paths and woodland. Passing dog walkers and country strollers, our mothers and daughters chatted and laughed, swapping stories and anecdotes and sharing their passion for the great outdoors. After a couple of hours of blustery walking in the picturesque countryside landscape, our windswept ladies arrived at The Wild Rabbit, invigorated from the cold air and ready to warm up. Seated next to a cosy, open fire the group shared a moment to reflect on their enjoyable day, pampering session and precious time spent together. With hearts full of warmth and cheeks aching from laughter our six women said their goodbyes after a wonderful day together. To celebrate Mother’s Day, in partnership with Bamford Haybarn Spa, we’re giving away two pairs of Le Chameau boots and two 60 Minute Organic Facials at the Bamford Haybarn Spa, plus a goodie box filled with Bamford Bath, Body and Skincare products.
