If you’re looking to be pampered like never before, the magnificent Vital Health & Wellbeing Club will delight you from the moment you first arrive. A recent £1.4 million investment has transformed this facility into one of the finest in the area, offering a haven of complete and utter indulgence.

With a comprehensive menu of soothing and revitalising treatments as well as an extensive set of amenities, a visit to this sensational oasis of calm is a must. If you’re on the lookout for a spa paradise that will help you escape an increasingly hectic lifestyle, you can bask in the knowledge that you've finally found it.

The workout

A workout at the magnificent Craxton Wood Hotel brings you all the usual rewards and a whole lot more. The state of the art Technogym equipment and a welcoming, laid-back atmosphere combine to create the perfect environment for everything from a gentle jog to a full-on session that works every part of your body.

After your exertions, you can unwind in the relaxing haven that is the Vital spa café. Or, if you’re seeking the ultimate warm-down, try the steam room or sauna and unwind in style. A swim in the indoor pool is made all the more special by the rural beauty that can be seen through the full-length windows.

The food

A delicious place to sample the finer things in life, the Craxton Wood Grill brings you a wonderful collection of classic British dishes with an innovative twist that will tempt your taste buds from the start. A stunning location for both eating and drinking, the hotel deserves to be on every foodie’s must-visit list.

The secret to the wonderful meals is the insistence on locally-sourced ingredients of the finest quality. Whether you’re an overnight guest of the hotel or you’re simply visiting for a day of indulgence, you surely owe it to yourself to include a trip to the Grill on your schedule.

Me Time

Val Coakley, WIRRAL

From arriving to leaving I had a wonderful day. The staff were excellent as were all the facilities. The cream tea was delicious. Due to the lovely weather my friend and I sat in the garden in between our swim and saunas. The treatment was fantastic, thank you Jess. Definitely go again.

Just a catch up Friday with a friend, perfect price afternoon tea spa day. Lots of facilities, friendly very staff and the feeling of having all the time to relax. Perfect to de-stress and chat with rooms to ourselves. Brilliant tailored treatments done at the same time.
