something borrowed, SOME TIME FOR YOU!

Planning a wedding is one of the most significant periods in your life (for a bride at least). Sometimes the desire for wanting every last minuscule detail to be perfect can often turn the process into a stressful one rather than something you should enjoy and cherish forever.
Although we can’t provide the cake, a venue or the dress of your dreams, there are many ways in which the team at Ragdale Hall can make sure you are well prepared for what will be, possibly the biggest day of your life.

If you are on the verge of becoming bridezilla, you should seriously consider whether a rowdy hen party is really the thing for you. Perhaps you and your hens would much prefer a quieter, more sophisticated affair such as a spa day. With plenty of areas for your group to sit and natter over a coffee or glass of wine, a wide range of spa treatments and facilities including use of the Thermal Spa, which houses a series of different heat and water experiences.

If you want to have a real giggle with your girls, why not join in one of our dance or exercise classes such as Hula Hooping, Ballet Toning or Legs, Bums and Tums? For the perfect end to a lovely relaxing day, treat yourselves to champagne and canapés. Everyone will love it…even your mother-in-law!!!

We also have the perfect place for you and your hens to stay over at the Hall and make it a hen weekend to remember. The Lodge is a country cottage that sits separately to the Hall, with 4 bedrooms, it’s the perfect pad for your lively hens and you won’t need to worry about disturbing the other guests at the Hall!!

If you’re the bride, our experts would like to recommend the following treatments to help you look and feel your best on the big day.

To de-stress before the big day:

Golden Indulgence (perfect for the groom too!)
Milk and Honey Body Glow Floatation
Clarins Rebalancing Massage


To get your skin in perfect condition:

• Anti-ageing: Elemis Biotec Facial (as recommended by Wedding Ideas magazine. Read full review here)
• Specific skin concerns (e.g. oily/dry): Decleor Ultimate Glow Prescriptive Facial

For those important finishing touches (perfect for bridesmaids and mothers too)

HD Brows (the brows really frame the face and give glamour to your make up. They can be as natural or as bold as you like.)
Glam Glow (gives your skin an instant glow. Ideally have this treatment 3 days before your wedding or use the Glam Glow product at home.)
Let’s Go Lashes (saves the hassle of applying mascara on the day and won’t smudge if you get a little emotional.)
Shellac (mix sophistication with a bit of glitz by going for a classic French paint with a Rockstar ring finger. With no drying time, no chance of your paint chipping and a beautiful high shine finish this is a must for every bride to be.)

If you’re chap is feeling the strain too then perhaps you should spend some quality pre-wedding time together. With all the organising and dashing around trying to make everything perfect, you mustn’t lose sight of what’s important here….each other! There’s a selection of spa treatments designed with him in mind too plus lots of healthy delicious cuisine and plenty of sumptuous sofas to curl up on together.

Why not consider having a mini-moon or your honeymoon at Ragdale Hall? With a vast range of spa breaks available from the three night Luxury Break to the seven night Unwind and Relax Week Away, there’s no better way to celebrate your love than in the surroundings of a beautiful English country house.

    I am enquiring about a possible spa day for a hen party.
    It could be quite a large group. Anywhere from 10-20.

    It wouldn’t be till the end of June/early July and preferably a weekend.

    I just wanted to know rough estimate on prices/availability please.

    Thank you.
