Somerset’s spa hotels are surrounded by verdant green countryside, making the region a superb place to relax and unwind on a wellbeing escape or a romantic spa break. But this part of the UK is also blessed with some of the most creative and inspiring cities that the country has to offer.
Somerset is famous for a number of its natural as well as historic attributes. For those looking for a spa weekend accompanied by some exploration, Wells Cathedral has been enticing visitors for centuries, while Bristol has superb nightlife.
Meanwhile, the Christmas markets in Bath are sure to get you in the festive spirit, and few things will make you feel more cocooned in luxury than The Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa or The Bath Priory. Both provide superb and award-winning spa breaks in Bath.
Of course, it’s also home to one of the most famous festivals of the year - Glastonbury - making groups of spa goers perfectly located in the summer months for the most spectacular of celebratory mini breaks. Try recuperating with friends at the elegant Elements Spa at the Windmill Retreat in Middlezoy perhaps, or at Bannatyne Charlton House with its wide array of reasonably priced Somerset spa days and breaks.
As mentioned, spa hotels in Somerset are blessed with the most spectacular natural surroundings as well. Take the caves and canyons of Cheddar for example, or the open moors and farmland of Exmoor. All invite you to experience the kind of fresh air that will instantly give you a sense of detox for mind, body and soul.
For example, The Mount is a perfect example of a country house hotel with all the romantic spa credentials you could ask for. Its adult only spa is set in the grounds of an opulent hotel, surrounded by landscaped gardens and cradled between the Quantock and Blackdown Hills.
