Five reasons to love Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa

The Cheshire treasure trove of luxury wellbeing

It often seems to us that the Cheshire countryside is a treasure trove of beautiful experiences just waiting to be explored, and within the Formby Hall estate, one such jewel positively sparkles.

Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa is a hotel, spa and championship golf resort nestled away in rural Merseyside. It's in pride of place for exploring the surrounding area, but that in itself presupposes that you would ever want to leave.

"This was gift for my mum. We had a really lovely day. The Spa was fab and the facial and back massages left us. It’s feeling very relaxed. Staff were super helpful and friendly. Our Afternoon Tea was the perfect end to a lovely day." - Lucie

Here are just five of the reasons we love it...

1) The scenic spa location

Setting the scene for rest and relaxation, Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa is a modern hotel set in verdant green surroundings. Much of the immediate surrounding landscape is made up by an 18-hole championship golf course, peppered with trees and lakes and making for a beautiful view. The hotel is also perched on the west coast of England, close to both the vibrant city of Liverpool as well as sweeping beaches, bracing seas and sheltered woodland walks - all waiting to be explored.

2) A contemporary spa experience

The spa at Formby Hall is modern and welcoming, offering everything you need to work out and wind down. Letting in plenty of natural light, it's decorated with soothing hues, plush materials and pops of colour.
