We take the hassle out of looking for cheap spa breaks…
Escaping to a luxurious spa, where you switch workwear for a fluffy robe and are buffed and polished, then slathered with various exotic smelling creams, is our number one Monday morning daydream.
But while the rich and famous are often spotted at some exclusive health retreat, the rest of us simply can’t afford the high price tag that comes with it.
Or so we think. There are actually tons of spa retreats that are great value, and still retain that luxury factor that makes the experience extra special. We’ve handpicked some of the best spas the UK has to offer for you to enjoy.
Nothing shouts relaxation like a deluxe spa break, so grab your partner, mum or best friend and get prepared to seriously unwind…
