Spas in Somerset
The warmest natural springs in the UK meant that Bath was marked out as a place for relaxation as early as Roman times, if not before.
Its popularity as a spa destination was renewed in the Georgian era and more recently the re-opening of Thermae Bath Spa has put it well and truly on the international map.
A combination of stunning, timeless countryside and the latest in healing and relaxation techniques is a formula many companies have honed to produce some outstanding spas.
Set in beautiful houses among rolling acres, these places have sprung up across the County.
Some have proved so successful that they have developed their own treatments and products that are marketed all over the world but which still bear the signature of their roots in rural Somerset.
There are spas in converted barns, spas with hydrotherapy pools, one with a celebrity owner and another with its own golf course.
Several have restaurants offering locally sourced food.
Some are marketed as Romantic Breaks and others as the perfect venue for a pampered party.
Some are part of hotel chains or holiday resorts while others are in independent boutique hotels.
If ancient warm springs are a traditional way to unwind, there are modern takes on the concept that bring us mood showers, relaxation chairs and hot stone massages.
The beauty of trying all or any of these reviving options is that in Somerset you can do so a stone’s throw away from a bracing beach walk, a stroll in the woods or a wander through meadows of wild flowers.
