Many of the best selling spa locations in the north west cite Cumbria as their home. Armathwaite Hall in Keswick is a spectacular country house hotel of almost palatial proportions that never fails to invite superb reviews. It is romantic, family friendly and stylish all at once, whilst offering exceptional contemporary spa facilities that you can enjoy whether you visit on a spa day or a spa break.
Of course, one of the great attractions of a spa break in Cumbria is that it can be combined with so many other activities as well. The Lake District Wildlife Park is always a major attraction, whilst Skiddaw mountain provides a dramatic vista and the surrounding countryside makes for an ideal location to dabble in clay pigeon shooting, fishing and other outdoor pursuits, all of which are particularly popular on group breaks, birthdays and celebrations, stag dos and hen parties.
Speaking of hen parties, of particular appeal for groups of friends is the likes of Appleby Manor Hotel and Garden Spa. It’s got endless views of the Eden Valley, but it’s also got rustic charm in the form of log fires and individually designed rooms. An adult-only destination, it’s superbly chic and individual. There’s no such thing as one size fits all in this place, so as you settle into your aqua thermal journey, you can be sure you will feel utterly spoiled - just as you should do!
