Ideal for walking breaks and a chance to really and truly relax and unwind, Wales is also filled with cultural attractions and a lively atmosphere in its cities, making for a wealth of retail therapy and opportunities for group afternoons out with a city spa in Cardiff or spa days in Swansea being as magic as an overnight country escape in Caerphilly.
Variety is abundant at Welsh spa hotels. The famed Celtic Manor spa hotel in South Wales is known for its golf and family friendly activities, which are also accompanied by a vast spa that’s got a global reputation for excellence in its own right.
Then there is the historic and magical Ruthin Castle in North Wales and the elegant Lamphey Court in South West Wales, which gives just a hint of the options available for exemplary hospitality, whether you’re looking for a romantic escape, group celebration or hen party.
There is also a helpful variety in terms of cost. There are luxurious spa escapes to splurge on when the time is right - for example, an overnight break at Tre-Ysgawen Hall Country House Hotel and Spa - a beautiful country house hotel on the Isle of Anglesey. Meanwhile, other destinations offer cheaper spa days such as those on offer at The Panaea at St Mellons or taster treats at the likes of The Quay Hotel and spa in Conwy, that allow for spontaneous visits whenever the mood strikes or an easy introduction to the world of spa if you’re new to it.
