Spa & Leisure

The spa at Bowood Hotel and Spa is all about understated elegance. There is a sauna and steam room, a café in the reception area, and four treatment rooms. There is also a pool, Jacuzzi and a gym almost entirely constructed of glass, which means that you swim, soak or cycle into the verdant green of the eighteen hole golf course outside.

All treatments use Sundari products created by Christy Turlington, and start with a Dosha consultation form to ascertain which personality type you are – Vata, Pitta or Katha – which essentially has to do with whether you have dry skin, oily skin or combination skin. The products used are ascertained from there, and the theme continues throughout your day.

Hotel & Accommodation

In the grounds of the eighteenth century estate, the Bowood Hotel and Spa is a contemporary addition that fits elegantly into its historic setting. Inside it combines a modern palette of greys and jewel tones with the grandeur of huge swathes of fabric and enormous pelmets, and everything feels very open – even standard rooms have high ceilings, and lots of natural light.

When it comes to dining, there is a café in the reception area which also extends outside in the summer months, serving a light menu and Dosha boxes which are tailored according to your aforementioned consultation form. For more formal meals there is also a restaurant in the hotel next to the bar – views naturally are of the golf course, which also has its own brasserie in the club house.
