Next to the wide Atlantic, you’ll find a carefree, Cornish place to step away from the everyday. Bedruthan Spa draws upon the traditions of social Nordic health cultures – those places where saunas and steam rooms are just a normal part of everyday life. With a welcoming ease and warmth, this spa believes in the powerful effect of simply slowing down. A sauna, steam room and caldarium all offer somewhere to let the edges soften. And for those wanting a few gentle laps in water, outdoor and indoor pools await – as well as a large, bubbling hydropool for sitting in while staring seaward. Treatments are inspired by Ayurveda and therapists here offer thoughtful approaches to both meditation and massage.
Outdoors, find the popular outdoor Sensory Spa Garden amongst the fragrant flowers and herbs of the hotel’s gardens. This spa experiment draws upon the history of contrast therapies, where hot and cold are experienced in succession for a uniquely powerful effect. You’ll be guided into a wooden sauna, before pulling the cord on an ice bucket drench. The contrast is a huge shock to the system: it awakens you like nothing else, leaving you feel refreshed and anew.
