Close to home >>
We’ve spent months creating our own at-home spa experiences, but now that some of our favourite spas have reopened their doors, escaping for a day of well-deserved pampering is definitely on our agendas this autumn.
Step inside the contemporary spa at Swinton and be whisked away from the rush of everyday life. An array of spa packages are on offer – each with a combination of wellness, beauty and rejuvenation in mind. Think full-body massages, sumptuous dining and cosy corners to sit back and really switch off for a moment or two.
Step into those fluffy slippers and head out into the spa garden. Get the body pumping and take advantage of the 10-metre natural pool or close your eyes and feel the great big, feel-good hug of 20,000-acres of nature surrounding you.
Time for a rooftop escape. Rudding Park, Harrogate has an abundance of fabulous spa packages on offer this season, and there’s plenty of space to ensure your break is as relaxing and as spacious as can be.
We’ve set our sights on the Horto Supper and Rooftop Spa. After indulging in a two-course dinner, head up to the tranquil roof terrace and watch as the sun sets behind the pristine landscape. Sink into your lounger and take in the views, before dipping your toes in the hydrotherapy infinity pool.
Plenty of open space, fine food and indulgent treatments on offer.
FEVERSHAM ARMS HOTEL & VERBENA SPA
Sitting in a sweet spot in the quaint market town of Helmsley, the Feversham Arms Hotel & Verbena Spa is the place of dreams for an oh-so chilled autumn break.
Check out their seasonal stay packages, including the use of a deluxe spa or poolside suite, a two-course evening meal and a glass of fizz. Seal the deal with a hearty Yorkshire breakfast the following morning.
Time to relax in style and feel the tensions of 2020 gently slip away.
