We hope you agree now it’s official – Ragdale Hall is the UK’s best spa!

The award was announced at last night’s Spafinder Wellness Travel Awards in London – where we also received awards in the categories Best for Affordability/Budget and Best for Girlfriend Getaways.

We were totally taken aback to be pronounced Best in the United Kingdom in the ‘Best in Country’ section of the awards, with this award recognising we offer an ‘exceptional wellness experience’ to you, our guests.

The awards honour hotels, resorts, destination spas and retreats offering the best wellness travel, holidays, and experiences worldwide and a panel of 39 wellness travel editors and experts from around the globe short-listed us, before voting was then opened to decide the winner.

The organisers also stated we are being recognised for ensuring that you – our guests –  are healthier when you check out than when you checked in (we think they must have missed the desserts section in the Dining Room!) But we hope you agree a visit to Ragdale Hall relaxes the body and the mind and really does recharge your batteries, ready to take on the challenges modern life can throw at us.

These are prestigious international awards and place Ragdale Hall firmly at the top of the spa industry in the UK, and among some of the best spas in the world!

It is fantastic to have our facilities and our hard work recognised and highlighted globally – and to win three awards is a truly amazing achievement.

And we would, of course, like to sincerely thank every one of you who took the time to vote for us in these awards – we really do appreciate it.

    Delighted and not surprised that you’ve won best UK Spa. I love the place, its where I go to “switch off” and the desserts aren’t that unhealthy unless you eat lots of them!

  2. Joy Townsend says:

    Congratulations!! I already know your the best. Well done to all of the wonderful staff at Ragdale. See you Sunday.

    My friend and I have loved sharing our birthday at Ragdale over the last 25 years.

    Once you’ve sampled the delights of the food and the ambience, together with the wonderfully trained staff you are spoiled to go anywhere else.

    Congratulations. More than well deserved.

    The first time I came, having a small child, I felt guilty at such an indulgence, but once I arrived, my friend and I both agreed, we were worth it, and returned home feeling wonderfully good about ourselves and our experience.

    My cousin and I return year after year. Wouldn’t go anywhere else now as have been too spoiled at Ragdale. We always praise and recommend you to other people highlighting the amazing friendly atmosphere and customer service, not forgetting the wonderful food. See you next year!

    I’m not surprised!
    I get a visit in as often as I can, what you offer is so precious to me. I introduce as many as I can to Ragdale to experience what I do when I’m there. Complete and utter indulgence, time to rejuvenate my soul. Works every time. Thank you Ragdale
