English history meets modern luxury at Ragdale Hall Spa
You may have already tried out the Ragdale Hall Spa experience in the comfort of your own home – it has its own range of spa products with Marks & Spencer.
This is one of the most established names in Britain’s spa scene. Set inside a stately home that is hundreds of years old, it has been used as a hydro spa since 1973.
Water treatments are still central to the spa’s philosophy – an ancient stream runs through the spa area, and there are multiple pools: an extra-warm candlelit pool for bathing; a 25m heated swimming pool; an exercise pool for aqua aerobics; and an indoor and outdoor waterfall pool for relaxing.
Try something new from the spa’s extensive menu – the innovative Shell Shocked Massage uses lava shells to work on your back and abdominal muscles, while the Crystal Massage combines traditional massage techniques with crystal healing.
You can also stick with the classics – Ragdale Hall Spa offers a range of effective Decleor facials and Clarins treatments, as well as beauty add-ons such as Shellac manicures and pedicures.
Men can choose from a similarly long list of facials, massages and grooming treatments, including the acclaimed Decleor Men’s Age Defying Facial.
The spa is constantly updating its facilities, most recently adding a Beauty Express stop and a Hair Studio in 2013. Whatever it is doing, it seems to be working – over 40 years after it welcomed its first spa guest, Ragdale Hall is still winning awards and accolades across the board.
