The spa day, which is has been put together by Spa Seekers (opens in new tab), will delight any Christmas fan - especially if they're a big fan of mulled wine.

Taking place at Shrigley Hall in Cheshire throughout December you can enjoy an actual hot tub filled with mulled wine, massages inspired by the wine's ingredients and of course you'll get to enjoy a glass of the festive wine too.

The spa day, which costs £60pp, allows you to hop in the mulled wine filled hot tub - which is kept at a warm 37 degrees.  

According to Spa Seekers bathing in the wine allows the 'pores to open, releasing toxins and allowing your skin to embrace the tannins in the mulled wine'. 

The ingredients of the wine, orange, cinnamon and star anise, are also said to be good for detoxing the body. While your there you can also treat yourself to a festive 45-minute Frankincense massage, or a brown sugar, cinnamon and orange body scrub.

If mulled wine isn't your cup of tea, the Queen has released her own gin, just in time for Christmas. The Sandringham gin, made with ingredient from her own back garden is available to buy in the royal residences gift shop.
