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.
