A day or a stay of complete and utter perfection is ready and waiting for you at the exquisite Cottonmill Spa at Sopwell House. This idyllic Georgian masterpiece is set amid 12 acres of tranquil Hertfordshire countryside, and it’s an absolute paradise for lovers of luxury. Friendly, fabulous and family-owned, it’s the perfect setting for the indulgence that your mind, body and spirit have been craving.

A recent £14 million investment has led to the creation of one of the finest spa facilities to be found anywhere in the country. Cottonmill offers the exclusivity of a private members’ club with the serenity of a spa that’s as state of the art as it gets. Treat yourself soon to treatments and therapies that are innovative, luxurious and blissfully indulgent.

You’ll find plenty to see and do in the local area, including of course lovely long walks through the hotel’s grounds. Be sure to set aside some time for retail therapy in the streets of St Albans, where you’ll also find plenty of Roman heritage that’s worthy of exploration. The popular Verulamium Museum is a magnet for those with a penchant for history. 

The gorgeous Sopwell House is perfect for overnight breaks well away from the hustle and bustle. There are 128 majestic rooms and suites waiting here, not to mention of course the stunning new Cottonmill spa. And when it’s time to dine, there are two superb restaurants that offer plenty of mouth-watering temptations.
