The Spa

Decadence is par for the course at the Eden Spa, where you can unwind without a care in the world. As soon as you arrive here, you will start to feel your mind, body and spirit sinking into indulgence mode.

There’s a tempting range of delicious treatments ready and waiting to please you, so take a little time and choose those which float all your boats. Then, when you’re in the mood for more relaxation, spend some quality time in the hydropool.

The gym at Down Hall Country House Hotel

The hotel’s superb gym features a wide range of state of the art Technogym equipment, so it’s easy to enjoy the ultimate workout. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, and it’s suitable for visitors of all standards.

If you’d rather be in the great outdoors, savour a long walk or a strenuous jog in the hotel’s extensive grounds. And if you’re in the mood for some competition, spend an hour two honing your skills on the tennis court.

Restaurants and food at Down Hall Country House Hotel

Exceptional retreats always offer exceptional dining options, and Down Hall is no exception. The hotel’s flagship restaurant, the AA Rosette-awarded Grill Room takes English cuisine onto a whole new level, so be sure to spend some time here.

Afternoon tea is a speciality, so if you’re in the mood for the ultimate foodie indulgence all you have to do is ask. Another added temptation will be outdoor picnics, which the hotel will prepare for you to enjoy in the grounds.

Lovely and small

If you’re looking for a smaller more intimate spa, this is the place. There’s only a few people in the spa at your given time meaning it’s not cramped. The treatments we had were lovely and relaxing, never felt rushed. Lunch was nice if you love cheese and meat but not ideal if you don’t as there’s only one choice, we ended up ordering something else and paying for it. Overall a lovely visit, very clean and highly recommend

An amazing experience from start to finish. The staff were lovely & very helpful, made you feel very comfortable. The scalp, neck and shoulder massage was lovely, all facilities were great too. We had a ploughman’s lunch at the fox room which was very well set out, with delicious Camembert & a selection of hams. Over all a great experience would highly recommend!

Disappointing visit.

The two hours in the wet spa means 2 hours use of a locker key and towel with no additional time allowed for showering and dressing. Despite treatments immediately after the spa you must get dressed to walk 20 meters to get undressed again for your treatments. Ridiculous. Also frustrating when there are only 2 showers and 2 changing rooms and you end up queueing to use them instead of relaxing for the full 2 hours. This needs rethinking as it detracts from the purpose of rest and relaxation. The relaxation chairs also need recovering. They are very torn and scruffy sadly. Having said all of that the treatment was heavenly and money well spent!

The Spa appears to be relatively new, everything was very clean, staff very welcoming. Steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi and relaxing room all very enjoyable. Treatments were good, lovely lava shell massage and rose quartz facial would recommend both. One negative is the size of the changing rooms, quite small although they do have individual changing areas which was a welcome change. £20 for 2 hours spa use is good value. Would recommend.

Had a lovely day having lunch and then visiting the spa. The massage was absolutely perfect as was the wet spa. We especially loved the relaxation room and the Jacuzzi. Thank you for a very relaxing day.

Amazing stay for our anniversary at Down Hall. The executive room was fantastic, spacious, cosy and comfortable. The only downsides were that some of the walks in the grounds were closed due to storm...... Read more
