Spa weekends in the country
I’m looking at booking a Spa hotel away, doesn’t matter where but somewhere nice within 3 hours drive of Sheffield. Looked at Lodore falls hotel and Langdale, but as we spend loads of time in the Lakes was wondering if some alternative ideas. Other Lake District suggestions welcome.Posted 4 months ago

Havent actually been to this spa, but Helmseley is a nice place in fantastic countryside, take your bike.
Rockliffe Hall near Darlington is a great hotel and spa although there’s not a huge amount round there.Posted 4 months ago
Second the Feversham Arms. The Devonshire Arms near Bolton Abbey is also good (small but good spa). The Low Wood near Bowness has an epic spa, with infinity pool looking up the Langdales. The Titanic Spa near Huddersfield also gets very good reviews, but I’ve not made it there myself yet.Posted 4 months ago
Titanic was very much past is heyday last time my o/h went
How country do you want? Rudding park near Harrogate is nice and the spa very good.Posted 4 months ago
Thanks, TBH a city break could do, and I may need to manage my expectations as 2 nights in a nice room are pretty pricey!Posted 4 months ago
Just outside Harrogate…
Edit: I should have read the other posts first shouldn’t I? It is very nice though and the food at The Clocktower is very good too.Posted 4 months ago
Might be a bit too near but I always think Loose Hill takes some beating. Especially if it can be combined with the taster menu
1/2/3/4th Rudding Park. Hotel is fab, Spa is brilliant but make sure you schedule time for an evening trip when everyone else is smartening up or dining.
Although the flashiest new Spa in town is at Carden Park south of Chester https://www.cardenpark.co.uk/spa/ – so easy to get into borders / Llandegla / Llangollen.
As you mentioned ‘spa’ but not ‘budget’ I assume cost is not an issue 😃
Feversham Arms spa is great too but possibly (unless it’s been done) in need of a refurb. The outside pool is nice. As others said, loads to do around Helmsley.Posted 4 months ago
The Coniston is nice near Skipton – Lake, spa and land rovers https://www.theconistonhotel.com/Posted 4 months ago
Swinton Park near Masham (North Yorkshire) is very nice with some great local walks around their grounds.Posted 4 months ago
Swinton and the coniston (coniston cold nr Skipton) both get a Mrs brain thumbs up.Posted 4 months ago
Losehill House is stunning, I thought the spa was OK but not much more.Posted 4 months ago
For a foodie/walking/outdoors break though it’s amazing.
Thorpe Park is aight for a not too expensive option. Not been for years but the Low Wood was great when I went. Being in outdoor hot tubs when it’s snowing was pretty sweet.Posted 4 months ago
Ragdale Hall near Melton Mowbray is great if you want to head south of Sheffield rather than north. Ye olde bell out near Retford is smaller but good for a day in the spa and overnight stayPosted 4 months ago
Seaham Hall may just squeeze in under the 3 hour mark. Very swish and also very expensive but it’s rather good.
Rockliffe Hall is nearer you but it’s not as nice.Posted 4 months ago
Done Feversham Arms and Swinton.
Swinton was quite old fashioned but in a great spot. Feversham i return to time and time again and has seen some ups and downs in quality but overall a great spot with nice village and good general area.
Spa was looking a bit rough last time I went to Feversham. Pool can be nice.Posted 4 months ago
There’s a spa at Another Place hotel in the Lake District on Ullswater. Lovely hotel, great indoor pool, outdoor tub and options on casual dining or a very good formal dining room. Spent a couple of nights there for my folks golden wedding anniversary and would go back if I could afford the room rate.Posted 4 months ago
