It’s been an exciting few months for us at Ragdale Hall, as we’ve celebrated numerous award wins and award shortlists – and we couldn’t feel more grateful for the overwhelming support from our loyal guests both old and new who come back year after year, and the staff at Ragdale who have worked incredibly hard to make this a reality.

In August, we were over the moon to be awarded ‘Best Retreat Spa’ in the Good Spa Awards. The award was decided by ‘spa spies’ and combined with our bubble rating to determine us as winners of this category. We were also finalists in the category ‘Best Spa for Fitness and Wellbeing’, recognising our retreats and the new Heart + Soul Fitness space. Ragdale’s co-owner, Michael Isaacs commented: ‘To be awarded ‘Best Retreat Spa’ in the Good Spa Awards has been a wonderful boost after the difficult times we’ve all experienced in recent months. Ragdale is a very special place, with a very special team, and this award is a testament to everyone’s hard work, dedication, and incredible efforts. It’s an award for absolutely every member of the Ragdale family.’

The Good Spa Award win follows a successful few months of award wins; most recently we were awarded ‘Best Hotel Spa Experience’ in Natural Health Magazine’s Beauty Awards 2021. Prior to this, we also scooped up ‘Best Health Spa/Retreat’ in the Health & Wellbeing Awards 2021. As both of these awards were reader-voted, we really mean it when we say that we couldn’t have done it without your support, and so we’d like to say a huge THANK YOU to you all!

Our new Twilight Bar, (which was designed by the talented Concorde BGW Group), was also awarded ‘Best Restaurant Bar Design’ in the Northern Design Awards 2020. Cheers to that!

As the cherry on the cake, we are also absolutely delighted to announce that we’re a finalist in the World Spa & Wellness Awards 2021 in the category ‘Spa of the Year’ for Western Europe & Scandinavia. The World Spa & Wellness Awards recognises and rewards the work that spas do around the globe, acknowledging excellence of care, service, and standards – so to be a finalist in this category is a huge honour. Wish us luck!

At Ragdale, we are passionate about caring for your every need and ensuring your time is specially tailored so you can focus on switching off from everyday life, to have space to breathe and reconnect with yourself and loved ones. This year has been full of ups and downs, but it’s also been incredibly special. During lockdown, we hoped to keep you up to date with all of our latest wellbeing content (from blogs on essential oils, how to ‘spa at home’, and delicious recipes, so you could have a slice of Ragdale from the comfort of home.

We spent the time upgrading our current facilities, and we also launched Heart + Soul Fitness, which is more than just a new boutique fitness and wellness space, but a movement where we all sweat, smile and succeed together.

This year also marked our re-opening in May, where we were able to welcome back our guests and staff after months of closure (an undeniably emotional moment), and so to be recognised for our efforts and our passion for wellbeing especially after the difficulties we’ve all faced together, really does mean the world.

    All these awards are so richly deserved. As I said in my feedback survey a couple of days ago, it is my overall experience that makes me always call it Ragdale Heaven, and makes my friends raise their eyes as I can never adequately explain, despite trying ad nauseum, quite how amazing it is. Especially when they tell me they have visited a spa, the poor things really have no idea. Every time we think it’s perfect, then you dream up something even more fabulous, what will you surprise us with next!

    I should think so too. You are the BEST. My daughter and I so look forward to our annual break with you. Love and congratulations to you all xxx🥂🎊💞

    I am so pleased that Ragdale has had such great recognition. I have visited as many times as I can afford since a lovely friend treated me to an overnight reviver a number of years ago and even one nights stay gives me total relaxation. All your staff are superb, the facilities are wonderful and it is so nice that you continue to develop, expand and improve the space but still manage to make it an affordable, luxurious treat. Thank you for everything you do to make Ragdale the amazing experience it is 🙂

    Congratulations to you all. Have been coming for last 25 years and it’s just worth the 2 . 5 hour drive to feel relaxed and be among friends again. See you all in January. We came in June of this year and I felt extremely safe for our 3 night stay. Loved all the emails during lockdown too.
