Why you need a Spa Break?

Why you need a Spa Break?

 Christmas can be a trying time, it’s so easy to forget that it’s still important to spend time on yourself and quality time with your loved ones. You have after all just spent a whole year at work!
Gifts don’t have to be material, I much prefer an experience for Christmas and what better than a Spa getaway?!
I was lucky enough to be invited along to spend the night at one of the UK’s top Spas this weekend, Ragdale Hall Health, Hydro & Thermal Spa in Leicestershire. This was a much needed and well deserved break ( well I think so anyway! ;-)) I have been to a number of the best spas in the UK and I have to say that overall this one definitely ranks amongst the highest.

This spa has been in business since 1973 and I can see why.
The facilities at Ragdale Hall are amazing and I have not come across another Spa in this country with anything comparable.
The site has an array of varying saunas and steam rooms to offer including a volcanic salt bath and colourflow caves. There is also a large indoor pool and a swim out area featuring massage fountains and jacuzzi spurts.
My favourite of all, something which I have not experienced before, The Candle Pool. This space was like a serene out of this world sensation. I opened the door and wasn’t sure what to expect. I then found myself walking downwards deeper in to water and then fully submerged from neck to foot under artificial starlight. I swam through a series of cove like pool areas and then found a neck pillow floating in one of the coves. The trick here is to kind of float and look up at the stars with candle light surrounding you. It was such a relaxing and new experience. Definitely recommended!


The food at Ragdale Hall was also delicious and included in my stay was lunch, dinner and a fabulous breakfast in bed which was a real treat! There is an emphasis on healthy eating here and the recipes and combinations on offer are very creative, even the the health conscious deserts!


I am a huge fan of spas and treatments. During my stay I had some fabulous treatments including a full body massage and a Pure Radiance facial.
The therapists here are really lovely and brilliant at their job! I completely nodded off during my massage and also during the facial. I even got a hand, neck and arm massage whilst having the facial done….could you ask for more?!?

This place is just great, no exaggeration needed! The service is very attentive which I absolutely love when trying to relax and enjoy myself. Putting this on my list to visit again hopefully sooner rather than later!
