The Jet Lag Alleviation Method >> LWSY at Haybarn, The Berkeley Hotel, London.
You can’t prevent jet lag, but there are certain ways to alleviate it. So 24 hours after landing back to London from my stay in NYC for design week last week, I hopped on the bus and headed over to the Berkeley Hotel in London’s Knightsbridge. At semi zombie state nothing was more exciting than the prospect of spending the morning at Haybarn to be eased back into London life. Albeit probably the most indulgent way to spend a Wednesday morning.
The Bamford Haybarn Spa is the second spa to open following the success of the first wellness retreat in the Cotswolds at the Daylesford HQ. The hotel suggested I try the Bamford Body Signature Treatment, so for 85 minutes this is what I was in for…
‘Opening with a cleansing foot bath followed by shiatsu, meridian and Swedish massage, this treatment awakens and penetrates the muscles and energy channels of the body. Reflexology to the feet helps to encourage the positive flow of energy throughout the body and to detoxify the organs. Pressure point massage to the face, neck, shoulders and head is deeply relaxing and up-lifting. The treatment culminates with assisted yogic breathing to refresh the lungs and revitalise the whole of the body.’
YES (oh & it totally worked).

Following my treatment I was invited to take tea by the rooftop pool. I cheated and ran down for a quick steam before taking a dip for a few laps. With the added luxury of it being a week day, the pool was silent, I could have fallen asleep for the whole afternoon.
What a lucky girl to be spoiled with an unexpected late lunch at Koffman’s downstairs afterwards. With a seasonally inspired menu of French brasserie favourites and Koffmann’s legendary signature dishes, yes of course I had the pistachio soufflé.
Don’t forget to help yourself to a pick n mix bag of sweets as you leave…
With a goodie bag of treats to try out at home, what a lucky girl I am…
Thank you so much to Christina at The Maybourne Group, and to Jenny at the Haybarn. What a wonderful way to get back to London life.
