Kingham Life

Rest and Relaxation

We at Kingham Cottages are always keen to support local business’ and we know that lots of our guests are here for a time of rest and relaxation.  Therefore, we thought it would be useful to let you know about the options for some pampering in the area as well as the ultimate special treat; someone coming to your cottage.

Love Pamper Company

If you are staying at Kingham Cottages and wanting an extra special treat you can book a pamper party.

Whether it be for a couple, group of friends, babymoon or just because it’s Saturday you can tailor a pamper to suit your party.  You can also book a yoga class to accompany your pamper (it’s yoga-larties.  Come on, that’s good!) ensuring you are holistically prepared for deep relaxation.  Of course, we also have the perfect setting for yoga classes in the Sequoia room at no extra cost.  So, what are you waiting for?  Book direct with Love Pamper Company

“Combining physical alignment with emotional and nutritional balance, our team of experts will guide you and help you to achieve harmony, health and happiness in body, mind and spirit.”

The Bamford Wellness Spa offers retreats, massage, pilates, yoga, nutritional consultations and you can now even get a manicure there….it’s heaven scent beautician, but not cheap!

Cedar Therapy in Chipping Norton

Cedar Therapy

Cedar Therapy

Cedar Therapy in the local market town of Chipping Norton, offers the full range of nails, facials, massage, hair removal and spray tan as well as some of the more specialist treatments of modern salons including Caci (a micro-current technology to firm up sagging skin.  I didn’t know either!), 3D Ultimate (also targeting cellulite issues) and Guinot’s slim logic.  A light and fresh environment with friendly and experienced staff this is an excellent beautician and local option for a wide range of treatments.

Stow Health & Beauty in Stow on the Wold

In the opposite direction from Chipping Norton is Stow on the Wold.  If you’re popping in for the Borzoi Bookshop or browsing the many antique shops, a quick treatment can always be fitted in at Stow Health and Beauty.  Facials, waxing, mani/pedis and tanning are all on offer as well as Caci and chiropody. Their beautician USP is to run pop-up clinics including semi permanent makeup ‘Facial Aesthetics’ with Beautoxology

Also in Stow on the Wold, Candy Cox Beauty Therapy is a beautician that offers the full range of treatments but their USP is a make up service using the Jane Iredale range of mineral cosmetics.  These are cosmetics that do the skin good whilst being worn because they are derived from natural minerals rather than synthetics and chemicals.  A 60 minute lesson costs £45 and a special occasion make up lasting 30 minutes costs £35.

Zerenity in Moreton in Marsh

Ashleigh Long runs the beautician Zerenity in Moreton in Marsh offering waxing, tinting, facials, massage and mani/pedis.  Her USP is that she will come out to Kingham Cottages and deliver pamper sessions in the comfort of your own cottage.  What a fun addition to a girlie weekend!
