Choose a hotel with a spa garden for the ultimate summer escape

Lucknam Park
Set in 500 acres of private parkland, Lucknam Park is a great spot to get away from it all. The hotel’s impressive ESPA spa is home to a sun terrace set in a wonderful Cotswold-stone walled garden surrounded by beautiful blooms and lush-green trees. There’s an outdoor/indoor linked hydrotherapy pool and an outdoor salt water plunge pool.

Gilpin Lake House
An intimate atmosphere is assured at Gilpin Lake House where just six beautiful bedrooms have exclusive access to tumbling 100-acre gardens, a serene lake, boat house, saunas, two hot tubs and a spa. Located in the beautiful Lake District.

Calcot Hotel and Spa
Surrounded by some of the Cotswolds’ finest countryside, Calcot sits in 220-acres of meadowland. Meander from the honey-hued manor house through a cluster of pretty farm buildings to the secluded spa garden where a lavender-lined courtyard awaits with an outdoor hot tub, sun loungers and even a log fire for chillier days.

Barnsley House
Tucked away in the secluded grounds of Barnsley House via a short stroll down a winding path, the Garden Spa features five treatment rooms, a steam room, sauna, relaxation room, lounge area and an outside stone terrace and hydrotherapy pool. The spa’s own garden also features a reflecting pond with waterfalls.

Maison Talbooth
Just an hour from London, Maison Talbooth is a charming 12-bedroom Victorian country house hotel overlooking picture perfect Constable Country in Essex. The property has a relaxed house party vibe and there’s a cool pool house with an honesty bar, a log-burning outdoor fire and a hot tub. The outdoor pool is heated year-round.

Whatley Manor
The sweeping grounds at Whatley Manor near Malmesbury hide rose and herbaceous gardens as well as leading down to the tranquil River Avon. Take a stroll from the rambling Cotswold manor house and arrive at an oasis of calm nestled in nature. Take a dip in the hydrotherapy pool at the Aquarias Spa and swim outside where a series of massage jets await. Then relax on the underwater recliner, soak up the sun on an outdoor lounger or enjoy a bite to eat on the spa terrace.
