The Spread Eagle Hotel & Spa

The Spread Eagle Hotel & Spa

A quintessentially English hotel...

The Spread Eagle Hotel & Spa is part of Historic Sussex Hotels, a privately-owned collection of three very distinctive luxury hotels set in some of the most beautiful locations in West Sussex.

Forest Bathing

The perfect introduction to this popular Japanese therapy. Immerse yourself in this experience, using the forest as a source of natural well being, followed by lunch.

We invite you to join us for a two hour forest bathing experience with Swedish teacher Helena Skoog followed by a delicious two course lunch.

Helena was born and raised in the forests of Sweden and has spent the past six years living off-grid in ancient forestry in Sussex.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the term 'forest bathing' simply means the practice of slowing down and totally immersing yourself in the forest atmosphere. Inspired by the Japanese art of Shinrin-yoku which draws on the therapeutic powers of nature to reduce stress and impart you with a profound sense of peace.

Helena will skilfully guide you through a series of sensory invitations enabling you to connect, in the present moment, with yourself and your natural surroundings.

Setting off from The Spread Eagle, please arrive by 9.15am for an 9.30am start, followed by lunch on return to the hotel at approximately 12pm

Forest Bathing Reconnection

Our beautiful forest bathing reconnection experience is the perfect way to escape the burdens of every day life and reconnect with yourself and those who surround you, using the power of nature.

We invite you and a partner to join us for an evening of Forest Bathing Reconnection. Choose who will benefit from a deeply immersive forest bathing experience, one which uses nature to encourage renewal, growth and change nature, guided by the gentle hand of forest bathing guru Helena Skoog. While the other heads to our Spa, to float beneath the Scandinavian-style vaulted ceiling in our indoor heated pool and put themselves in the hands of a spa therapist for a deeply relaxing spa treatment. Re-unite and re-connect later in the evening over a candle-lit dinner in our restaurant.
