Rediscover the classics… then try something new.
The Bannatyne Group knows a thing or two about spas. The health club chain has more than 60 locations across the UK, offering classic treatments and thermal spa facilities alongside alternative therapies, unique packages and bespoke treatments.
Charlton House Spa is no exception. From the exotic Moroccan-themed thermal spa, to the hydrotherapy pools and the extensive treatment list, it’s nothing if not a crowd-pleaser.
An on-site salon offers a full range of beauty treatments, including bespoke manicures and pedicures for men. A massage menu ranges from the indulgent (the Chocolate Indulgent Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage) to the therapeutic (Muscle Melt Full Body Massage), while detoxing body treatments promise to bust cellulite (Elemis Cellutox Aroma Spa Ocean Wrap) and even cleanse out your insides (ask about the ‘Fennel Cleanse’…).
Given the spa’s proximity to Glastonbury, it’s no surprise that it specialises in treatments which are slightly unusual. Try the Hopi Ear Candles or an Indian Head Massage, and imagine you are blissed out at the Stone Circle on a sunny afternoon. Better yet, book one of the spa’s signature dry flotation therapies, which will hopefully leave you feeling practically weightless while a rich blend of organic oils, milks and herbs work to nourish and detox your body.
Charlton House Spa gets very busy at peak times and at the weekends, so it’s best to book in advance if you have your heart set on a particular treatment. The Elemis facials are always in high demand, especially the men’s Skin IQ facial and the Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift for women (a celebrity favourite).
As the spa is open until 9pm Monday-Friday, plan your treatment early and you can spend the rest of the evening lolling about in the thermal spa area and planning your next treatment.
