Now that overseas travel is off the cards for the foreseeable future, more and more people are looking to the UK for holiday inspiration. If you’ve been considering a break but don’t know how to combine kids and indulgence, you need to read up on the best spa hotels on UK soil.
We’ve found five family-friendly spa hotels that we think you’ll love, so take a look and see which one you fancy booking.
The Park Regis is just one of the properties that has garnered amazing reviews for Hotels.com on Feefo and with good reason. Offering a fully-equipped spa and gym for guests, it seeks to cater to every whim for families, and, thanks to plush bedrooms with access to free Wi-Fi, even the kids aren’t bored indoors. Fussy tummies can be catered for easily and it’s also perfectly located, in the city centre, for easy exploration and family days out.
A weekend in Wales?
Bringing together old-world charm and modern amenities, The Metropole in Llandrindod Wells makes customer satisfaction a priority. Guests can enjoy a complimentary breakfast every day, access to free Wi-Fi and the spa is something else. A carefully thought out fitness centre lets you work up a sweat, while the kids will love the swimming pool. A sauna and hot tub are also available for those old enough and with proper supervision, but don’t snooze on the nearby museums and sights.
The Keavil House Hotel in Dunfermline gives you the full indulgent treatment. Not only is this a charming country hotel, nestled in gorgeous Scotland, it also caters to your little ones specifically. The pool, set in a stunning orangery-style bathhouse, includes a specific kids splash zone, for your peace of mind and their safety and, if you’re looking to get your sweat on, the fitness centre is just a few short steps away. You can also choose adjoining rooms if you have older children accompanying you, to give them a little independence and you some peace.
Life on the isle
There’s more to the Isle of Man than the TT races, as the fabulous Comis Hotel proves. Not only does it have full spa facilities and some of the best views on the whole island, it’s also a golf resort, meaning there is an activity for everyone. Kids will love the warm swimming pool, but give them a chance to get them excited about golf too. You might have the next Tiger Woods on your hands! As an extra bonus, cots, cribs and roll-away beds are all supplied free of charge, so you don’t have to pay a premium for a family break.
Perfect for pets
Is it really a family holiday if you can’t take your beloved furry members with you? We don’t think so, which is why the Ullesthorpe Court Hotel is a firm favourite. The humans in the party can enjoy extensive spa facilities, with fitness centre, pool and beauty treatments all on offer, while the four-legged amongst your number can rest easy knowing there are plenty of pretty walks, throughout the gardens and beyond in picturesque Leicestershire.
So there you have it! Indisputable proof that the UK is not only perfect for family holidays, but fun and indulgent ones at that. Spa hotels might not seem ideal for kids at first glance, but with beautiful pools, sports facilities and the bounciest beds in the world, these properties show that theme parks aren’t the be-all and end-all.
