Six super spas on Swindon's doorstep


Swindon isn’t just a town steeped in heritage and gorgeous green spaces; it also happens to have some of the best spas in the country on its doorstep.

If you or someone you know needs a little pampering, pay a visit to one of the amazing spas this area has to offer.

So, whether it's a massage, beauty treatment, sauna, or even a full spa break you're looking for then look no further, Visit Swindon has it covered.

1. Bowood House

Fancy an escape to the country surrounded by endless views, wildlife, and beautiful grounds amongst a very regal looking Bowood House. Oh, and of course a luxury spa too? Well of course, try Bowood spa and take a dip in their infinity swimming pool, detox in the serene sauna or steam room, or how about a treatment or two? Their relaxation room looks to die for too, without a doubt the place to head for a sneaky snooze.  

We like the look of the Luxury Spa Pamper Break which includes a night’s accommodation, 3 course evening meal, full Wiltshire breakfast and use of the spa including a luxury spa treatment per person.

2. Whatley Manor

Whatley Manor is a luxury, jaw dropping 17th-century, Grade II-listed country manor house situated in the small town of Malmesbury and offers one of the best spas the UK has to offer. The incredibly high end Aquarias Spa will take you close to heaven with their hydrotherapy pool, complete with airbed, air tub and neck massage jets, tepidarium with heated stone recliners, salt scrub showers, thermal cabins, floatation pods and wave dream sensory room. Wow!

3. Cricklade House

Cricklade Hotel and Spa offers a traditional, warm, and friendly welcome for those in search of tranquillity. Located in over 30 acres of lush countryside, it is the perfect location for that peaceful, romantic, or recharging break. The spa here boasts a pool, sauna, steam room, fitness area, and five treatment suites. It’s definitely one to try.

4. De Vere Cotswolds Waterpark hotel

Lying within the peaceful setting of De Vere Cotswold Water Park, Spa6 is a destination in its own right. With a fully equipped gym, a swimming pool, sauna, spa facilities and a range of beauty treatments and spa experiences complete with lakeside views.

Spa6 is the perfect place to be to simply…. relax.

5. The Kings Cirencester

Located in the heart of the stylish market town of Cirencester, the underground Vaulted Spa at the Kings Head Hotel is a cosy haven hidden amongst the bustling shops. It’s perfect for a romantic break away or a special treat just for you.

They offer a range of signature treatments with Elemis products including a full body massage, facial and back, neck and shoulder massage with mini facial as well as manicures and pedicures.
