From the moment you hand over your car keys for valet parking to when you emerge, revitalised and refreshed, at the end of your break, there is no better way to spend a few days.
Everything about Ragdale is designed to relax your mind and body and it's the perfect getaway with a friend or as a special treat just for you.
Visitors tend to be female (though couples are welcome too) and such is the 'Ragdale effect' that within a few hours of arriving, most guests are make-up free in robes and slippers, with the most pressing problem being whether to have a latte before or after a treatment!
A major feature is the number of intimate and cosy hideaways - there might be a hundred guests at any one time, but you wouldn't be aware of it. The Lounge, designed like a Thirties drawing room, is ideal for a cosy gossip, while The Pavilion is light and airy, contemporary in design and gives you a dose of Vitamin D without having to subject your pampered tootsies to the elements.
Other areas include the Verandah room with cafe and if you really want to escape, head to The Retreat, a space of complete calm located away from the main facilities.
The Thermal Spa is the Hall's centrepiece, with 12 luxurious and unique heat and water experiences - including a volcanic salt bath, a steamy colour-change room and a soothing candle pool where silence is obligatory.
The spa complex's pool is partly outside and the thermals mean this can be enjoyed all year round.
Use of the spa facilities, main pool and outdoor activities are included in all breaks, but what many guests look forward to are the beauty treatments. There is a full range available, to relax and revive every part of your body!
We all love a massage and there are so many options at Ragdale. You may then be tempted to try the fabulous Sole Delight 50 minute treat for feet, including file and massage, or the popular Prescription Facial. The Sinus Smoother is perfect for releasing congestion.
You can book all your treatments in advance, but if you want to try something new once you've arrived, all you have to do is head to the Beauty Express, where you can book a 30-minute therapy such as a pedicure, manicure or head massage.
