UK’s Most Incredible Spas

There’s nothing quite like a few days away at a spa resort to recharge your batteries, make you feel pampered, and lower your stress levels.

We take a look at some of the best luxury spa destinations around the UK and what they have to offer.

Chewton Glen, Hampshire

With its position on the edge of the historic New Forest National Park, Chewton Glen country house hotel makes a great place for a luxury spa getaway.

The elegant spa facilities offer some fantastic treatments for pampering, including facials, manicures, full body scrubs, massages and holistic treatments. There’s a hydrotherapy spa pool, aromatherapy saunas, steam rooms, fitness facilities, and relaxation classes like Yoga and Tai Chi. Guests can also stay in one of the amazing treehouses on site, and be treated to a special treehouse treatment like a New Forest massage or tranquil body therapy.

The hotel itself is glamorous and comfortable, with excellent food and drink available. The hotel offers walking trails and woodland jogging routes, a small golf course, and is close to the sea.

Gleneagles, Perthshire

The beautiful Scottish countryside provides the setting for this famous hotel and luxury spa.

Spa facilities in Gleneagles are calm and sumptuous, and as well as treatments like massages, facials, body therapy and exfoliation, guests can relax in the saunas, steam rooms, ice fountains, and vitality pool. Better yet, the spa is only for use of guests who have booked treatments, so has an air of peace and relaxation.

After pampering themselves in the spa, guests can enjoy golf, horse riding, falconry or peaceful walks in the countryside. The luxury hotel rooms boast modern facilities, while the restaurants and cafes on site provide excellent food.

Stapleford Park Country House Hotel

Historic Stapleford Park is located in a sprawling country estate in the East Midlands, and makes a fantastic spa getaway destination.

The Clarins Gold Salon spa is situated in a converted Victorian stable block, along with a modern fitness suite and yoga fitness facilities. Guests can pamper themselves with full body treatments, holistic therapies, massages and facials, and unwind in the spa’s steam room, sauna, jacuzzi or heated pool.

Bedrooms and suites are decorated to a high standard by designers and local artists, and there’s fine dining to be enjoyed in the main house restaurant or pavilion. The spectacular landscaped grounds offer leisure activities like riding, golf, falconry and walks, so there’s plenty to do after relaxing.

Sequoia at The Grove, Hertfordshire

As a luxury spa just outside London, the Sequoia spa at the Grove attracts some big names and gives visitors an incredible spa experience.

The high-end treatments available include personalised facials, body massage, waxing, and signature spa treatments. Facilities are first-rate, too, with heat treatment rooms, an ozone-filtered swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, and vitality pool for relaxation, and fitness studio, exercises classes, free bike hire and other outdoor sports to enjoy.

The location of The Grove makes it a great destination for one day spa treatments, but for a truly relaxing break try one of the sumptuous hotel rooms in the Grade II Listed mansion. There are several restaurants on site, offering everything from afternoon tea and homely food to fine dining.

Coworth Park, Berkshire

The modern and innovative luxury spa at Cowarth Park in Ascot makes a great destination for a contemporary spa experience.

The treatment rooms offer facials, massages, body wraps, nail therapy, and special men’s treatments. Facilities include a heated indoor swimming pool with underwater music, a relaxation area, a steam room, experience shower and gym with exceptional views.

The hotel’s luxury rooms and suites are as elegant as the spa, and the restaurants on site offer fantastic food. The special ‘Spatisserie’ restaurant in particular is a must-visit for spa patrons, as guests can relax after treatments with afternoon tea and serene views. More active guests can enjoy garden activities like tennis and croquet, as well as horse riding and even polo.

I have been to several health spas and the one that I always go back to is Ragdale Hall near Melton Mowbry. It is independently run and is the perfect place to relax, loose weight and feel pampered. The rooms are excellent and the food is second to none. It has all kinds activities from relaxing in one of the many saunas to a full fitness workout in the exercise studio. There are many treatments available, some are included in the package and others can be added for a small charge. It is a very popular place so it is best to plan your stay and book your activities and treatments before you arrive.
