One Night Spa Break with Dinner and Wine at Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa with BuyAGift Review: September 2019

The Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa package with BuyAGift is the perfect way to have a mid-week Monday – Thursday breakaway.

Our room was upgraded to a classic room to a delightful deluxe ground floor room which included a separate bedroom with doors straight onto the patio.

With the sun shining, the views from the lounge across the golf course were superb.  The fully furnished patio area was ideal just to sit and chill.

During our time, we had visits from plenty of the non-human kind of guests which was a lovely natural touch for sure.
