The Alfresco Spa has pitched up on a little secluded slice of Bucks countryside and you need to get a piece of it. An outdoor spa with swimming, sauna, hot tubs and more, it’s the ultimate escape from your 9 to 5 and it’s accessible to frazzled folk from Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire hankering for peace, quiet and an invigorating spa experience with friends. The gorgeous spot at Blackpit Farm overlooks the lake and is all about making time for a refresh, recharge, and a bit of reconnection with nature, or just switching off from life for a few hours.

Over the course of a four-hour spa session, you’ll get access to The Relaxation Centre which has five natural wood hot tubs, a wood burning sauna and cold plunge pool if you’re the Wim-Hof type. The lake is available for wild swimming from April, which, along with time spent cloud gazing in the mediative Quiet Field, will round off your day leaving you feeling zingy and zen.

Like your creature comforts? You maybe spa-ing alfresco, but fear not – in The Stable there’s warm showers, changing rooms and toilets, which is music to the ears for those just beginning to dip a toe in the whole outdoor wellness thang. There’s also a café serving healthy nibbles and hot drinks (hurrah!) to replenish you between dips. If a four hour spa sesh isn’t enough, and you want this in your life on a more regular basis, you should check out the membership packages to bag some regular me-time and a healthy glow to boot.

If you think this kind of event could work for your next party/work do, then look no further – the team that runs the spa are pros from the festival circuit so they know a thing or two about managing alfresco events. Want to incorporate glamping, foodie treats or even workshops into your alfresco spa event? No problem.

Tempted? Thought so. The Alfresco Spa is open weekends throughout 2024 for spa sessions, but watch this space for a whole host of wellness activities that are in the works. We’re talking yoga, breathwork, sound baths and massage therapy as well as workshops like life drawing and photography, foraging and outdoor cooking.

The Alfresco Spa looks set to be quite the wellness destination, so get it on your radar, stat, before the secret gets out.
