Spending a day or weekend even at spa, free from distractions, is one of life’s simple pleasures as far as I’m concerned.  I like to think of a visit to a spa as a mini holiday for the body and mind, and what’s so great about it is you don’t have to travel that far from home.  If you live in Nottingham and like to visit the spa, this post is going to be right up your street.

I’ve done the very tough job of bringing together the best spa days and breaks in and around Nottingham to bring you the most relaxing treats you will find in the East Midlands and beyond.  I’ve been lucky enough to try a few spas in and around Nottingham, so you will be getting some hands on  experience before you book your relaxing treat.  So whether you are looking for a day with the girls, perhaps you enjoy going to the spa as a couple or it’s treat for a special occasion, these are the spas you want to pay special attention too.

Best Spa Days & Breaks in (and around) Nottingham

Eden Hall Day Spa, Nottinghamshire

I had to start with Eden Hall Day Spa as it is a personal favourite of mine, and I make a point of visiting a few times a rear.   The building is just incredible and dates back to 1875, when it was originally called Middleton House.  Inside Eden Hall create the perfect atmosphere to relax, with a wonderful conservatory and vast selection of steam rooms and saunas.

The spa days at Eden Hall include use of the gym, swimming pool, hot tubs and so forth, but one of the highlights has to be the 3 course lunch.  They always provide a well thought out menu made with fresh ingredients and an extensive help yourself buffet.  It certainly leads you with a very satisfied feeling and it the perfect precursor to a visit to the slumber lounge for a little afternoon nap.

I strongly recommend joining their mailing list for the latest treatments and offers, and to take advantage of some amazing discounts. Why not take a peek at the gorgeous Time to Sparkle Spa Day review for a luxurious treat this winter.
