A Sensory Soak
Designed by Tiffany Passmore and Bridget Lloyd, Go Botanical
Living, working and breathing in the New Forest, our perfect garden escape is a playful take on Japanese shinrin-yoku or forest bathing; not literally bathing in water but bathing the senses in the surrounding woodland and planting, washing away the stresses of day.
