Surrounded by 130 acres of dewy historic gardens and woodland, it's the perfect place to pair soothing treatments with a large helping of fresh country air.

Awarded Five Bubbles by the Good Spa Guide and a finalist for the Professional Beauty Best UK Residential Spa, Lifehouse Spa & Hotel lives up to its name with decadent Clarins and Decléor treatments, a gym, an indoor pool and plenty of beauty facilities.

The spa features a hydrotherapy pool, salt inhalation room, sauna, steam room and countless treatment rooms. The restaurant strikes the perfect balance between healthy and indulgent, with fresh, nourishing food and more than a few treats in the mix.
