Surrounded by 300 acres of parkland, Rudding Park’s spa has had a spectacular makeover and as a result is now one of the most comprehensive and beautiful spas in the UK, recapturing Harrogate’s spa heritage using natural spring water from the grounds. Set over three floors, The spa is a feast for the senses and a complete thermal experience. It includes an indoor pool, juniper log sauna and a rasul. The treatment continues with the Escape Zone designed to offer relaxation through visual stimulus, sound and mindfulness. There’s also the Roof Top Spa, which includes a further hydrotherapy infinity pool, a panoramic sauna, a herbal bath steam, luxury steam room, foot spa, experience shower, and a sun deck, with a spa bath and a garden sauna cabin.
Details are carefully attended to in this magical place of wellbeing, and as such it doesn’t stop with the facilities. There’s a manicure, pedicure and make-up bar, a life style gift shop, hairdresser and the spa’s own Horto Cafe. The jewel in its crown of course are the 11 treatment rooms, including a VIP Room with a feature copper bath, where therapists use a combination of products from Carita (technologically-advanced, results-driven and anti-ageing), Elemental Herbology (based around the Five Element theory from traditional Chinese medicine), Ila (encapsulated in its maxim, ‘beyond organic’) and Jennifer Young (created specifically for the safety and benefit of cancer patients).
