Everyone know how easy the internet makes it to research a holiday destination, but I was astonished by how much a friend found about where I live in Malvern.

A working mill set in beautiful grounds The Clover Mill uses the Ayurvedic principles of healthy diet, therapeutic massage, gentle yogic exercise and meditation. A one and half hour Marma Abhyanga full body massage later I was just about awake enough to think:
I love the internet!
