Why we’re the ultimate staycation destination

A week spent relaxing in the Mediterranean sun might not be on the cards this summer, but we do understand that after spending countless days at home in isolation, many are craving a change of scenery and an escape from normality.

As the UK’s leading spa resort, Ragdale is renowned for its extensive facilities – this coupled with our location, outdoor activities and wide-open green spaces is what makes us the perfect post-lockdown, fresh-air spa break this summer.

Set in 13-acres of a serene, rural Victorian country house estate, there’s space to roam in robes in the afternoon sun and enjoy our beautiful gardens, and plenty of comfy seating options nestled in the grounds so you can snooze in the shade, or enjoy a glass of fizz and a catch up with a friend or loved one.

Of our six pools three are outdoor, so you can choose to soak up the panoramic views from the infinity edge of our Rooftop Pool, let your stress melt away with a soothing waterfall shoulder massage in our Waterfall Pool or enjoy a refreshing swim in the Outdoor Pool to help cool down in heat of the summer’s sun – or all three. Our main Outdoor Pool at the front of the Hall also offers plenty of loungers, so you can switch off from the world around you.

Outdoor Pool in the summer

If you like to balance an indulgent break away with keeping active, why not take a bicycle (we provide helmets too) and enjoy some fresh air and scenic views cycling along the surrounding quiet country lanes, or head out on foot and explore one of the many walking routes in the area.

We have tennis courts (equipment included), have added some new outdoor fitness classes to our timetable and also offer daily countryside walks.

Our friendly team of staff will be on-hand to ensure you have a pleasant and restful stay, so when you’re ready to come and visit, we’ll be ready to welcome you.
