The oh so gorgeous Gainsborough Spa is a gem of a retreat that should be on the wish-list of all lovers of luxury. Located in an idyllic rural spot in Suffolk, it’s a peaceful retreat that will soothe the soul from the very first moment. Whether you’re looking to relax or to savour a workout, you can find just what you need in this oasis of complete and utter bliss.
There’s plenty to enjoy in the local area, including long walks in the picturesque Suffolk countryside. The glorious city of Cambridge is close by, so be sure to check out the iconic history and the historic buildings. The charming town of Bury St Edmunds is always worth exploring, and make sure you savour some retail therapy in the local streets.
The exceptional Gainsborough Spa will bring you the indulgence you crave. There are four serene treatment rooms to relax you, and the recently refurbished gym is simply superb. And when it’s time for food, you can dine in style throughout the day.
You deserve a chance to soak up some luxury, so make sure you spend some quality time in the fabulous spa. This is a have of harmony that should go right to the top of your must-visit list.
There are a number of sublime treatments and therapies on offer, each of them designed to give you the purest of pleasure. Later, the dramatic indoor pool will be waiting to provide yet more of that all-important feel-good factor.
The state of the art gym is well-equipped, welcoming and perfect for both experienced athletes and well-meaning amateurs alike. Everything you need to create a workout to remember can be found right here in this sumptuous setting.
There are a number of organised classes to be enjoyed, so you can have as much (or as little) company as you want on your journey. And after all that exertion you’ll want to relax in style in the Jacuzzi, the steam room or the sauna.
Every day of decadence should include the opportunity to savour delicious food and drinks, and here in Suffolk the same applies. Hot and cold drinks are available throughout your time here, so stop awhile as and when you want.
A tempting range of meal options can also be enjoyed in the dining area, thanks to the skill and talent of a locally-based catering specialist. All you have to do is settle back and savour every moment of the experience.
My sister and I booked a day of pampering at the Gainsborough Spa recently, and to be honest we didn’t want it to end. We both had a couple of treatments – either side of a delicious lunch – then spent the afternoon by the pool doing very, very little! This is a facility that has everything you need for getting away from the usual routines, and we’re both planning to make a return visit very, very soon. If you happen to be looking for an indulgent escape, I would recommend the Gainsborough without hesitation.
