Spa & Leisure

Headlam Spa is a luxurious rural retreat standing next to the magnificent Headlam Hall and overlooking the beautiful gardens and picturesque golf course. The spa has been designed for the benefit of hotel residents, members and day spa visitors. The combination of stunning interiors, superb facilities and the highest standards of care and comfort make this a leading spa destination that reflects the natural beauty of this countryside location.

Why not take a dip in the indoor heated swimming pool, cool off outdoors in the Hydrotherapy Pool, let off some steam in the Sauna or Steam room, or just stand and melt away in the feature shower.

There are 5 beautifully appointed treatment rooms at Headlam Spa including a double room so you can enjoy a treatment with your partner or a friend. After a treatment, why not sit back with a good book in the Spa lounge, a relaxing area with a feature stone fireplace, luxurious and comfortable furnishings including sofas and easy chairs and a juice bar serving fresh fruit juice, coffee, teas and snacks.

Hotel & Accommodation

Headlam Hall Hotel is a Country House Hotel, Spa, Restaurant and Golf Course located in County Durham, North East England, midway between Darlington and Teesdale. Standing in beautiful walled gardens with its own luxury spa and golf course, this seventeenth century Jacobean mansion looks out over its own rolling countryside estate.

There are a total of forty en-suite bedrooms with differing shapes, styles and character as you would expect in an old country hall. One thing they all share, however, is a high standard of decor, furnishings and attention to detail plus up to date facilities such as Sky television, telephone, free wireless broadband, ironing equipment and tea/ground coffee making facilities.

The style of the rooms reflects the traditional nature of the building but at the same time there are some slightly contemporary touches and all enjoy a newly appointed feel. While some rooms have period furniture and rich fabrics, others are more cottage-like with softer country colours and chunky timber furniture.

The restaurant at Headlam Hall is divided into four areas, each offering a contrasting decor but all characterised by the same levels of fine furnishing. The layout of the restaurant gives good scope for private dining rooms and the Drawing Room overlooking the main lawn, is truly beautiful.

If you wish to combine a spa break with a golf break the superb 9 hole course is set over mature rolling pastureland to the east of the Hall and has an abundance of natural features including rig & fur, woodland, streams and ponds which are both pleasing to the eye and challenging to the player.
