Spa at Carden

The Spa at Carden, Cheshire

On a 1,000 acre estate, complete with its own vineyard, The Spa at Carden is a magnificent retreat, that's a joy as a day spa but also sitting alongside a marvellous hotel as well. The spa was purpose-built - it's adult-only, and vast in the extreme, spread over two stories. A partnership with Bollinger has resulted in a beautiful Champagne bar, signature spa treatments using herbs and grape juice harvested from their own grounds, and there's a 2,500 square metre spa garden that can be used all year round. There are indoor and outdoor thermal facilities, and a dedicated spa restaurant. That's all before you even get to the hotel.
