Norfolk Passport

Top 5 | Health & Well-being

As we start the new year lots of people will be making their new year resolutions, to help you out a little we have given you our top 5 things to help kick 2019 off to a healthy and happy start. 

We are extremely fortunate in Norfolk to have many things happening that can assist in a healthy lifestyle but I think the best thing of all is getting outside to stretch the legs and breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the amazing views we have in our county.

Spa break 

Whether you want to pamper yourself or treat someone, a spa break is a fantastic way to recharge the batteries and make you feel rejuvenated. From facials to massages or using the sauna and steam rooms they have something to suit everyone.

The Pigs in Edgefield offer it all. Whether you would like a one-off treatment, or a full day sampling the treatments, enjoying the hot tub, and eating tasty home-cooked food, their friendly staff are guaranteed to help your mind and body feel relaxed. If you have more time and would like to make more of your experience, stay in one of the gorgeous PIGSPA suites where you can spend the night in luxury with your own private sauna and steam rooms.
