  • Glowing Katherine Daniels facials

    Beautiful (salon quality) products and a facial that left our Muddy assistant with a face like a baby’s bottom…

  • Muddy does a Bridget ‘mini-break’ – Forest of Arden Hotel

    Sometimes, the stress of a holiday or the 10 hours stuck in traffic on the way to Cornwall, really do negate any benefits of a trip away; that’s why I’m the new champion of a cheeky break on your own doorstep (or near as damn it)! And according to Marriott’s Great British Break Report, two […]
