Spending time in the great outdoors, connecting with nature, has been proven to enhance your wellbeing. And now, thanks to the new Aqua Sana spa at Sherwood Forest Center Parcs (http://blog.centerparcs.co.uk/aqua-sana-treetop-sauna-revealed/), you can pamper yourself in the forest and gain a radiant complexion to boot.

The new spa has become part of the forest, with a heated outdoor pool, outdoor hot tubs and, most spectacular of all, a treetop sauna that sits 10m high in the trees and offers peaceful, beautiful views. The forest theme continues inside, with the likes of a forest glade steam, rain forest shower and forest mediation room among the 26 experiences on offer.

Treatments from Elemis and Decleor include the Elemis Superfood Facial to revive tired, stressed skin and the Decleor Aroma Blend Firm and Refine body shaping massage to energise. Maid Marion would certainly approve!

* Spa sessions start at £38, spa days at £85 and breaks at £185. Visit aquasana.co.uk.
