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.

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.

Good venue, perfect massage

Venue is generally clean and well equipped, only let down by one foot spa not working (which I see in a previous review) and the spa steam room had an unpleasant smell (though poolside one was fine). A dietary requirement led to a 20min delay in afternoon tea but the food itself was delicious and filling. Made good use of the ~18m pool (which was only ever shared with 1 other person at most) and pleasant, quiet and well equipped gym. Best part was the treatment. Back massage from Liv was amongst the best I've ever experienced - perfect blend of angles, technique and pressure - only regret was that I hadn't booked for longer. Overall thought it was good value and have already booked to go back.

My friends and I were all in need of relaxing afternoon. And that's exactly what we got! We all enjoyed our treatments. The back massage and facial were so very relaxing. The afternoon tea was delicious too, we had great fun in the steam/sauna rooms especially with the ice 🧊 lol!🙈🤣. I even managed a really serene swim as I had the pool to myself! Just an amazing Spa experience!!

This was my first time doing a spa day. It was a treat for my grown up children following a funeral of a close relative. I have to say it was an excellent experience. I will definitely go again.
