The Spa at Wynyard Hall | Review

The Spa at Wynyard Hall is located in the old boathouse by the lake, only a short distance from the hotel.

The Spa 

The spa experience starts in the conservatory which has lovely green wicker furniture and overlooks the lake. The atmosphere is very relaxed and you are seated here whilst you fill out your consultation forms.

You are provided a locker in the changing rooms which contains a towel, robe and spa slippers. The changing rooms themselves are quite small, with only two showers and changing cubicles – which are necessary as this is a unisex area. However, they do have all the amenities you could need including hairdryers and straighteners.

The salt inhalation room has heated mosaic benches in is a great place to start your relaxation experience. Salt has been used for it’s healing properties for centuries, this is a great treatment for anybody who suffers with headaches. Remember to stay hydrated with the cooled drinks available in the thermal suite.

The herbal sauna which is lavender scented has views out onto the lake and outside terrace. This was wonderfully hot and the lavender oil truly helps you to unwind.

The outside terrace has two hot tubs, which are heated to a comfortable temperature and has beautiful views over the lake. Whilst we were visiting it was so tranquil with bright autumnal colours. There are also a selection of loungers, which would be lovely during the summer.

If you need to cool down between the experiences, there is a choice between an ice fountain or cold drench shower (if you dare!)

Rasul Mud Experience 

The Rasul chamber is an additional add on to the spa experience (£15 per person). This treatment uses the therapeutic benefits of mineral mud to improve your skin and detoxify the body. It starts with a lemongrass salt scrub, you then apply the Rasul Mud onto cleansed skin. There are three different muds that you apply to your hair, face and body. You then spend a relaxing 30 minutes in a steam room with heated seats.

Once I showered off the mud, my skin felt incredibly smooth and clean, I would definitely recommend the Rasul mud experience as an additional treat during your spa experience.

The Treatment

The list of treatments available sounds amazing. However, we could only secure two 30 minute treatment sessions when visiting- booking in advance is definitely necessary if you want to take advantage of their spa treatment packages.

I went for the Media Vespers (30 minutes, £35) which is a massage for the back, neck and shoulders, which claims to “wind you down and calm your mind”.

My therapist lead me to the treatment room, which was well presented with ambient lighting. The treatment began with a foot cleanse and a cooling gel. The massage itself was incredibly relaxing and the heated massage table was a great touch – I could have stayed there all day, total bliss!

The Verdict 

I thoroughly enjoyed my Media Vespers massage and Rasul Mud Experience, they were incredibly relaxing and I felt rejuvenated for the rest of the day.

Relaxing in the hot tubs on the terrace with idyllic views including the geese on the lake was a great way to spend an afternoon.

The spa attendants were incredibly helpful and friendly offering advice on treatments, products and ensuring that you enjoy your time. This makes you feel welcome and sets the tone for this relaxing spa environment.

I would recommend The Spa at Wynyard hall for anybody who would like to spend a relaxing day indulging at a spa with a serene location.

Would I visit again? Absolutely. I’m checking out their offers page and the ‘Cosy Winter Nights’ has caught my eye.

  1. This sounds amazing! I could spend all day in that jacuzzi! Also, are those drinks in the “mud” room? While you were enjoying your steam, were you also enjoying cocktails? Because if so… EVEN BETTER! LOL!

  2. This look incredible & so luxurious. Love the range of treatments that The Spa has to offer, especially the salt inhalation (never tried one of those). I ‘d sit in that hot tub for hours if I had a view like that.

  3. Sounds like an amazing experience! I’ve heard a lot about the salt inhalation rooms because it sounds like it has a lot of benefits just being inside it. Sounds too good to be true but a lot of people have done and loved it.

    The conservatory looks like it will immediately put you in a relaxation mode. 🙂

  4. Just came back from Budapest and the article reminded me a lot of the city spas, although I must say “The Spa at Wynyard hall” looks quite more relaxing and quite, the ones there were too crowded.

    Will definitely check it out when visiting UK again! Thanks for sharing!

  5. wow the place looks amazing and what girl doesn’t like a spa weekend. Thank you for this its given me the idea to get both my mum and sisters christmas present and of course treat myself too. Excellent post
