Rudding Park

Rudding Park

Harrogate

In 300 acres of parkland originally laid out by landscape designer Humphry Repton, this welcoming and romantic Grade I listed Regency mansion comes with impressive modern facilities. There are two golf courses, a private cinema and an award-winning rooftop spa with saunas, steam rooms, an infinity pool and herb-infused treatments. Sleek accommodation ranges from suites (some with a private terrace) in contemporary wings, to cottages and lodges. Inspired by the seasons – creative dishes are ‘exceptionally good’ in the glass-sided spa restaurant, Horto. Vegetables, fruit and flowers come from the delightful kitchen garden; the hotel’s natural springs supply the water. In the glamorous Clocktower Restaurant and Bar, a 400-year-old Catalonian olive tree takes centre stage in the light-filled conservatory.

Yorkshire’s natural beauty makes it an idyllic destination for a restful stay. However, between the historic spa town of Harrogate and the country house hotels that have made well-being an intrinsic part of their experience, spas in Yorkshire are amongst the finest in the land.

As with all spa hotels, wellbeing can come in all shapes and sizes and include a variety of different experiences. It can be indulgence and pampering, it can be about detox and relaxation, it can be about exercise and fitness, or it can be a combination of all those things. In addition to Harrogate, Scarborough is also a well known spa town with a history of healing. It rose to fame in the 1700s and was one of the first places to use bathing machines.

Today the region’s healing waters are a little warmer and a little more refined. From a luxury 17th-century inn where the pool, gym and collection of luxury therapies provide everything you need to unwind. To a Grade I Regency mansion set in 300 acres of parkland and with a purpose-built, glass-sided luxury spa added in recent years. Whether you’re looking for a romantic spa break or a family getaway with a little pampering thrown in for good measure, Yorkshire’s spa hotels have a variety of experiences to enjoy.
