With close connections to the M5, M40 and M4, and a convenient two hour train journey to London, the Cotswolds are the perfect location for a spa weekend away. Here are eight of our favourite places to go.

Hotel du Vin

 

Located amongst the hustle and bustle of the popular Montpellier district in Cheltenham, Hotel du Vin provides a secluded sanctuary to recline in comfort and style. Unwind in the spa’s steam room before choosing a therapeutic or holistic treatment from the luxurious spa menu. From body wraps and salt scrubs, to pedicures and facials, you’re sure to find something to suit your needs.

The ‘Scandinavian meets Cotswolds’ spa at Dormy House is a truly indulgent affair. Take a relaxing dip in the candlelit infinity pool before reclining in the tranquil thermal suite. Finish your visit with a soothing ‘back classic’ massage in the Suite of Treats.
