Greenwoods Hotel Spa & Retreat Stock, Essex

Full-on indulgence has become something of an art form at the sumptuous Greenwoods Hotel & Spa, a delicious retreat in the heart of the Essex countryside. This 17th century former manor house has been lovingly restored, and the result is a pleasing combination of the modern and the traditional. Days and stays of pure bliss are ready and waiting here.

Greenwoods is close to the shops and landmarks of Chelmsford and Brentwood, and is just a short train journey from Central London. If you’d prefer to visit the seaside, iconic resorts such as Southend-on-Sea and Canvey Island are within easy reach, and of course the idyllic rural countryside is a must-see.

Overnight stays are a delight at Greenwoods, thanks to 39 exquisitely comfortable bedrooms and a whole host of impressive features. The spa boasts ten serene treatment rooms and a poolside sauna, while the state of the art gym welcomes all-comers. Be sure to also check out the AA Rosette-awarded Ellis’s Restaurant, where elegant dining is always on the menu.

Lovely day!

Tracy Rodd, Hockley

Had a very enjoyable, relaxing day at Greenwoods.
The treatments were very relaxing, facilities clean, staff were very helpful and accommodating and lunch was excellent.
I would have preferred to have my treatments in the afternoon, so that I could use the gym/pool without washing off the lovely oils, but it was still a very nice day.

Spa day

Lydia Camobell, London

My mum and I had a fantastic experience at Greenwoods arranged for her birthday. We went for the superior spa package which included 2 treatments and lunch. The staff were very helpful, the facilities were first class and we absolutely loved it and will be back again soon. We have been to various spas around the world but this was definitely one of our favourites.
