The Spa & Wellness at Slaley Hall Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort

Step into a world of relaxation. Whether you're seeking serenity or that feel-good glow, the spa at Slaley Hall makes the everyday feel very far away. 

Your journey begins in the relaxation room, where you’ll sip on a herbal tea, breathe in the scented air and sink into bliss while you wait for your treatment.

And what a treatment. Rituals at Slaley Hall are designed to stimulate the senses, from light, well-being massages to something deeply cocooning. There’s the skin-drenching Frangipani Body Nectar Nourishing Wrap to revel in, or try the signature Slaley Holistic Body experience, designed to scrub, soothe and nourish you to pampered perfection.

Feeling out of balance? Try reflexology, a specialised pressure point massage to unblock crystalline deposits along your energy centres within your body. 

And to make sure you float away from Slaley Spa looking every bit as good as you feel, there are age-defying, skin-brightening Elemis facials, while beauty treatments and manicures provide the final polish. 

The Gym & Fitness at Slaley Hall Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort

Arrive frazzled, leave re energised thanks to all the fitness-fostering activities on offer at Slaley Hall. Its health club has recently received an upgrade, something that’s brought the gym to whole new levels of swishness. 

Working out feels less of a chore on the interactive gym equipment, and if you prefer your fitness with friends, there’s a whole timetable crammed with classes, from circuits to HIIT. Just remember to book in advance.

Not a gym lover? We hear you. Outdoor bootcamps make full use of Slaley’s stunning grounds, while sports lovers can have a kick-about on the football pitch or tee off at one of Slaley Hall’s Championship golf courses.

But for those who think fitness should feel fun and adventurous, head to Slaley’s on-site activity centre. Among the axe-throwing and quad-biking on offer you’ll find mindfulness outdoor packages, designed to get you out of your head and into your body. Perfect if there’s a group of you looking to reconnect or de-stress, you can get lost orienteering around the magnificent Slaley Hall Forest, try some beach ball volleyball or even take part in school sports day games.

Restaurants & Food at Slaley Hall Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort

Mind and body suitably restored, it’s time for a cocktail and at Slaley Hall, you’re really spoilt for choice when it comes to espresso-martini worthy locations. Glam up and head down to one of the oak-panelled dining rooms or lounges for that chic, vintage feel that’s reminiscent of a gentleman’s club. Fancy a nightcap before you float off to bed? There’s the swish Whisky Snug - it’s just as comfy as it sounds and has around 60 malts to sample.

Mr Kennedy's Brasserie

For a hearty breakfast, delicious dinner and an inviting atmosphere, visit Slaley Hall’s main restaurant, Mr Kennedy's Brasserie. It’s named after Thomas Kennedy, Slaley Hall’s former valet, chauffeur and butler whose memorabilia (including photographs and his uniforms) can even be viewed on request. 

History lesson over, it’s time for the main event. Must-try for meat lovers here is the 28-day aged Bavette steak. Cooked to perfection, this mouth-watering cut is also known as ‘butcher’s steak’ - it’s so good that butchers once kept it all to themselves.

The Claret Jug

Perfectly placed if you’re playing a round of golf, The Claret Jug offers pub classics and light bites served alongside spectacular views over the Championship course. The mood here is cool and casual, so sink into a sofa for mid-morning coffee and a read of the papers, or enjoy your favourite beer with a snack.

Tommy Craig's

Another option for a light bite is the buzzing Tommy Craig's, with its popular south-facing terrace. Meet for a glass of wine in the lounge, or sit up at the bar to watch the cocktail bar staff hard at work.

We had a wonderful day away from work. The leisure area was so relaxing, the staff and treatments were all just perfect. I’ve been to a lot of spas and this was one of the best for a massage. The lunch was tasty and more than enough to keep us going. Most of all, every single staff member there were so friendly and helpful and made sure you were going to have a lovely day.

Good day. Was very busy at the start of the day due to a graduation party and we had to stand around the pool side. Was very uncomfortable and spoiled the morning. Treatment was very good - one in our party had to have the treatment times split which wasn’t ideal as they were alone in the spa for nearly an hour without a seat or lounger. Lunch was beautiful. Very large portions and tasted great.

We arrived in the spa expecting our ‘welcome’ glass of prosecco, which we didn’t receive. I asked at the bar area, to be told you get that with dinner, which we didn’t get either. There weren’t enough loungers, so we had to hang around waiting to grab 2 loungers when people vacated them. The changing room looked a bit tired, paintwork on the doors looked dirty and chipped. Despite this we did enjoy our spa treatments and had a lovely meal in the restaurant.

Whilst the staff were amazing from reception to treatments. The food was gorgeous, I thought the rest of facilities were fairly basic. The spa area could definitely do with an outside space and hot tub. The changing room needs a little TLC but other than that we had a lovely day.

We loved our visit to Slaley Hall spa. The staff were lovely and very helpful. The only thing that did put us off was it was packed with children with it being the school holidays which we hadn’t even thought about with it being a spa. They aren’t permitted 12-3pm but that’s when we were at lunch and having treatments. There were very limited beds and certainly not enough for the amount of people there. I had a pregnancy massage and facial by Mandy and they were so relaxing. The towel basket hadn’t been emptied in some time resulting in towels and robes to be covering the changing rooms. Food was lovely although we were second in, last out due to the time we waited. £4.95 to add a small basket of fries was a bit steep. We will be back again but definitely in term time when there’s no children and a more relaxed vibe.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Slaley Hall offer afternoon tea?

After a morning of sheer indulgence, there’s nothing better than nibbling on something dainty and delectable. Luckily, everything stops for afternoon tea at Slaley Hall. Taken in Duke’s or the Edwardian drawing room in the original part of the building, you can live out all your Downton Abbey fantasies amid the sumptuous wood panelling. 

Gaze out of bay windows onto manicured lawns while tucking into a finger sandwich, cake or a scone or two. Go classic with a cup of something steamy, add the fizz, or mix it up with the Hendricks Gin afternoon tea, complete with little teapots filled with gin and tonic to share. 

Does Slaley Hall have a swimming pool?

Slaley Hall does have a swimming pool and, at 20m long, it’s big enough for a proper swim. Forget standard rectangles, because this warm, indoor pool is far more interesting, with its quirky grotto style featuring rocks, waterfalls and even a slide to add a fun touch. Subtle lighting keeps the mood serene, and it’s surrounded by wicker loungers that are perfect for poolside reclining.

What kind of accommodation is on offer at Slaley Hall?

Slaley Hall has a large variety of rooms and suites, and all 142 of them are large. Even the entry-level Classic rooms could fit two double beds with ease. Classic rooms are perfect for short spa breaks , but special occasions call for an upgrade to an Edwardian suite. The only rooms available in the original mansion, they boast impressive features - think grand windows, striking wallpaper and separate lounge areas.  

No matter which type of room you choose, most come with fantastic views that will remind you that this really is a countryside retreat. Gaze out over the rolling greens of the golf course, or admire the stunning scenery of the Cheviots in the north and the North Pennines' moors to the south.

What are the check-in and check-out times at Slaley Hall?

Slaley Hall’s check-in time is 3PM, but if you do arrive early the concierge can store your luggage. Check-out time is 11AM. Guests have access to the leisure club from 3pm on the day of arrival until 11am on the day of departure. Want to go for a swim after you check-out at 11am? Although it does get busy on weekends, it’s always worth asking if there’s any availability so speak to the leisure club on the day.

Is Slaley Hall family-friendly?

Yes. In fact, Slaley Hall is so family-friendly that kids aged under 16 can stay for free! Huge family rooms have cots for young ones and Z beds for slightly older ones, while adjoining rooms can give teens their own space. There are children’s menus perfect for picky eaters, while children aged five and under can eat for free. 

They won’t be bored either, thanks to Slaley’s on-site activity centre. It’s practically on the hotel’s doorstep and, with kids’ quad-biking, Segway safaris and archery on offer, there’s enough to keep even the most energetic families busy for the day. 

Got a junior spa-lover or mini fitness-fanatic in the family? Sadly, children under 16 years are not allowed in the gym or to use the Jacuzzi, sauna or steam room by the pool. But they can splash about to their hearts’ content during the generous, allocated children’s swimming times of 8am to 12pm and 3pm to 7pm when accompanied by an adult at a ratio of one to every two little ones. 

Is Slaley Hall pet-friendly?

Looking for a dog-friendly hotel in Northumberland? Just when you thought Slaley Hall couldn’t get any better, you can even bring your pup with you on your spa break for free! Slaley Hall allows two small dogs, or one large one, to stay per room, completely free of charge. Your furry friend can chill out in the lounges, Tommy Craig’s Bar and the Claret Jug - and you can even leave well-behaved dogs behind in your room when you’re not there. Just be sure to mention you’re bringing your dog with you at time of booking.

Does Slaley Hall have a golf course?

Like to pamper and putt? You’ve come to the right place. Slaley Hall has not one but two Championship golf courses (the famously-challenging Hunting and the slightly more forgiving Priestman), making it one of the UK’s premium golf destinations. Hunting is often described as the Augusta of the North, with towering trees, replica holes and winding fairways providing uncanny echoes of the iconic American course.

Even if you’re not an avid golfer, this course offers horizon-stretching views that you just can’t miss out on. Slaley Hall also has a putting green, driving range and bunker practice area to perfect your swing.
