So what have you got planned for the bank holiday weekend? Catching up with friends? Maybe having a family get-together? Or are you going for the most popular bank holiday pursuit of the British: fixing up those little jobs that need doing around the house, like that leaky tap in the kitchen, or re-sealing the bath?
Forget all that. Why not spend the bank holiday weekend pampering yourself with a remote spa break in the UK. Here are four locations from the more remote corners of the nation.
- Guernsey. If you’re prepared to take a short flight or perhaps a more languid ferry trip then head on over to Guernsey and enjoy the secluded wonders of St. Pierre Park Hotel. Guernsey has a relaxed pace, and the hotel is cloistered in acres of private land. The hotel’s Le Mirage Spa offers a wonderful range of treatments. Opt for the Perfect Solution package and go for the soothing full body massage and express facial.
- The Cotswolds. If you want to stick to the mainland then book a stay at the Cotswold House Hotel & Spa. Famed for its incredible beauty, the Cotswolds is one of England’s most rural areas. Really want to push the boat out? The Be Precious treatment includes a 23-Carat gold facial and gold body ceremony which will leave you feeling like royalty.
- Northern Ireland. When it comes to inspiring surroundings Northern Ireland has it all: miles of green hills, a towering, craggy coastline and the powerful swell of the Irish Sea. That’s why a spa break at the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa should be high on your list for a bank holiday getaway. With incredible views of the coast this luxurious hotel has it all. As for treatments you’re spoiled for choice. Why not opt for one of their signature options, such as their bespoke Ayurvedic rituals. After a consultation with a therapist you’ll have a bespoke body wrap treatment, tailored hot stone massage plus a foot ritual and scalp massage.
- Scottish Highlands. Where could be better for a remote UK spa break than in the spartan beauty of the Scottish Highlands. The Crerar Eight Acres Hotel & Leisure Club is located just outside Elgin, near the awe-inspiring Cairngorms. At the Sonas spa you can enjoy something more than your usual selection of massages and pedicures. The Cellutox Ocean Wrap with body and cranial massage sees your body cocooned in a sea plant and marine mineral gel which detoxes the skin, during which you’ll enjoy a pressure point cranial massage. Then after a cleansing shower your therapist eases away muscular tension with a body massage.
If you want to escape the bank holiday madness this weekend book a stay at one of these remote spa locations and enjoy some peace, quiet and relaxation.
