Is it possible to get pampered and feel like you’ve had a real break, after just one hour’s travel? Absolutely. Check out the spas to visit that are just one hour away from London. Facials, massages and more await…
Dorchester Collection’s country house hotel Coworth Park has an epic eco-luxury spa, just 45 minutes from London. Tucked away in greenery and landscape, the spa is flooded with natural light and is dotted with modern art and sculptures. Come and spend the day: the upper floor has eight treatment rooms, a manicure/pedicure salon, relaxation room and The Spatisserie, for light, healthy fare. On the lower level is the heated indoor swimming pool with underwater music, alongside a steam room.
Gemma Bowles, in-house spa expert from travel search platform Holiday Pirates loves Pennyhill Park in Surrey countryside. At the luxury hotel and spa, you can release the tension in your body and indulge yourself with the delightful culinary experience of the hotel’s Michelin star dining area. Start your day with a lush sunrise brunch enjoying a Pornstar Martini by the pool, or clock out for an afternoon tea, chilling out in a comfy armchair in the drawing room before relaxing with a 60-minute facial, massage, or body scrub.
Cliveden has 47 suites, 350 years of history, and is where Meghan Markle chose to stay the night before her wedding. The spa sits within in a garden of roses and lavender and offers treatments from Sarah Chapman, OSKIA, and its own new Cliveden Body Collection. For the latter, fragrances including jasmine, wild mint and lily have been inspired by former owner Nancy Astor, the first woman to win and take a seat in the House of Commons 100 years ago. Plus, it’s a 45 minute drive.
The latest addition to gorgeous Beaverbrook is The Coach House Health Club & Spa. When a spa is helmed by AMAN’s former regional spa director, you know you’re in for a treat. Everything is nature-based, inspired by the British countryside, for an experience that is holistic and healing. It’s also visually stunning, with a dramatic, stained-glass entrance, and light-filled treatment rooms. Make the most of the resident naturopath, as well as the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, too.
Another suggestion from Gemma at Holiday Pirates, Ashdown Park Hotel is one of the finest luxury country hotels in Sussex. The Country Club and Spa offers hotel guests and day-visitors relaxing treatments. If you’re a golf fan, then this is definitely the best destination for you. Ease the stresses of daily life with golf in the morning and break with a relaxing afternoon tea. Finish off with a specially designed spa treatment, created in association with the exclusive skin brand, Kerstin Florian.
