A passionate team, 40 years experience, award winning, extensive facilities....and there's more!
“Since 1990, this privately owned, family run business has been soothing bodies and minds. When the name of the game is relaxation, it’s impossible not to feel serenity and freedom; to breathe deeper, laugh harder, feel better.”
“We’re only there for one night – and whilst we’ve definitely made the most of these world class facilities, it doesn’t feel like long enough. Safe to say that just like so many others before us, we have officially caught the Ragdale Hall bug.”
“As spa areas go, it’s seriously impressive. There are plenty of quiet nooks and crannies for rest and reading as well as a bursting timetable of exercise, yoga and meditation classes.
“This is a place designed for pure relaxation, from the indoor pools to the thermal spa and, new this year, the brilliant rooftop pool, complete with stunning views across the rolling Leicestershire countryside. The pool is the perfect spot to lie back and watch the world (slowly) go by.”
Bazaar’s pick of the ultimate UK spa hotels
“The treatment menu is extensive – ranging from the innovative and holistic to the functional and the fitness facilities are equally impressive.”
“The sublime spa. We spent hours in here and tried out everything from the candle pool to the thought zone.”
“Recently opened Rooftop Infinity Pool. Sitting overlooking the tree tops, the bubbles pummelled away any stresses.”
“The comforting character of this impeccably run retreat makes it the ideal choice for a chilled-out break.
“Dating back to 1785, the hall carefully blends its traditional aspects with fresh design features.
“Staff are seamlessly friendly and obliging across all departments – the valet parking service on arrival is a particularly helpful touch.
“The extensive spa facilities are Ragdale’s magnum opus, and they don’t disappoint.”
“Ragdale Hall is the real McCoy; a destination spa worth the journey. One of the early ‘health farms’, Ragdale brilliantly marries old-school hospitality with zippy modern facilities.
“As you’d expect, there’s a serious menu of treatments too, with an army of very knowledgeable therapists administering everything from Hawaiian-inspired massage to the exclusive Golden Touch Treatment.”
“The welcome is warm, and the atmosphere peaceful. The Candle Pool is simply magical. You feel like you’re entering a secret cave as you take the winding staircase down. Lit by flickering candles, you can tuck yourself away into one of the little niches and just lie back. It’s the perfect way to make the outside world fade away.
“…the food is great with lots of fresh, healthy choices. All of this makes Ragdale Hall the perfect sanctuary for anybody needing a break.”
“It can be hard for legends to live up to their reputation.
“the rooms and suites are luxurious and comfortable, and the gardens are elegant…
“The list of spa treatments is vast…the Swimming Pool and Thermal Spa complex that are the jewels in the Ragdale crown.
“So, does Ragdale live up to its reputation? It does – more than 80 per cent of visitors are repeat guests.”
“More Waitrose than Harrods, this destination spa offers great quality with a reasonable price tag and exceptional customer service delivered by friendly, down-to-earth staff. Set among rolling hills, the red-brick country house boasts a mammoth thermal spa, an outstanding restaurant and tonnes of chill-out areas, both inside and out. Unpretentious, casual and utterly relaxing.”
