Our favourite spectacular spas

We are spoilt in the Lake District having so many wonderful spa hotels that offer added indulgence to really help you unwind. Here are just a few of our favourites.

Appleby Manor Hotel & Garden Spa

Originally built in 1871 it is one of only a handful of Carbon Neutral Hotels in the country. Surrounded by the Lake District fells, North Pennines and Yorkshire Dales it has an enviable location and with a luxury spa, hydrotherapy pool, outdoor spa baths, thermal suite and six treatment rooms you might forget to even venture outside!

Armathwaite Hall Hotel & Spa

A former Stately Home Armathwaite Hall is set in 400 acres of deer park and woodlands with stunning views of Bassenthwaite and Skiddaw and has certainly retained its grandeur. Offering a personalised spa experience, extensive range of treatments and therapies combined with a 16m infinity edge pool, outdoor hot tub and thermal suite you will leave feeling refreshed and revived.

Storrs Hall on the Lake

There aren’t many hotels that can say the edge of their front lawn doubles as the Lake Windermere shoreline. This beautifully restored Grade II listed Georgian mansion house is truly unique. If you are looking for pure indulgence then escape to their luxury boathouse with outdoor hot tub and fire pit on a private terrace. Arguably one of the most romantic places to stay.

The Daffodil Hotel & Spa

You can expect to feel completely at home in this modern. family run hotel on the shores of Grasmere Water. After a long day on the fells the spa will be a welcome sight with their extensive range of beauty treatments and skincare products.

Gilpin Hotel & Lake House

Words simply can’t do this elegant 5 Star hotel justice. In addition to the Swedish style treatment room raised into the tree canopy there are also five private Spa Lodges. Cedar-clad with gorgeous bathrooms and ensuite spa in each, a convertible treatment area, free-standing oval stone bath, outdoor sauna and hydrotherapy hot tub complete the luxury. Experience indulgence and pampering on a whole new level and we haven’t even mentioned the Michelin Starred restaurant!
