Massage is one of the most popular spa treatments, offering you the chance to really unwind as a trained therapist soothes away your stresses and relaxes your muscles. Whether you choose a lighter back, neck and shoulders massage, or a more robust deep-tissue massage, you’re sure to leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and like a whole new you!

Many of our great spa break and spa day deals include a massage as an inclusive or optional treatment. Packages are available for single spa-goers, couples and groups, such as hen parties. Each package varies in terms of inclusions, but most feature one or more treatments and unlimited or pre-bookable access to the spa’s leisure facilities. Dining options or refreshments are also often available. Overnight spa breaks will include accommodation and breakfast, with some packages also offering an evening meal.

You can book any of our spa massage days and breaks online through our secure booking facility, with reservations instantly guaranteed. If you need more flexibility or want to gift one of our packages, you can purchase a monetary spa voucher, which is redeemable against any of our spa deals.
