The indoor pool is heated and provides the ultimate relaxation zone with its poolside loungers and patio doors open on to a private garden with seating; perfect for a spot of lunch.

In our treatment rooms we aim to create a calming and relaxing environment, designed to help guests unwind with soft music and beautifully scented oil burners.



Adrienne specialises in reflexology and the vast benefits this traditional treatment brings. She has always been interested in alternative and complementary therapies and their ability to treat the body as a whole. Originally qualifying as a beauty therapist, Adrienne decided she wanted to be able to help her clients on at a much deeper level, which led her to train in reflexology. Since qualifying in 2010 she has been furthering her studies in the field and with Bach Flower Remedies.

Martin trained in sports injury massage but believes prevention is always better than the cure. Also specialising in rehabilitation and anxiety reduction, his qualifications, size and strength allow him to provide a consistent deep tissue massage. This can alleviate pain and promote injury healing. He combines reflexology, acupressure, Swedish and myofacial techniques with antique Tibetan singing bowls. These are placed on the body throughout the treatments.

Adrienne specialises in reflexology treatments and the vast benefits this traditional treatment brings. Reflexology, or zone therapy, is a non-invasive treatment which stimulates the reflex points on the feet (and hands) which connect with every organ in the body. It is able to treat chronic and acute conditions, give pain relief, alleviate stress, anxiety and depression. It facilitates self-healing and promotes feelings of well-being. Over a course of treatments reflexology has been proven to assist with many chronic and acute conditions that we all face today. As a singular treatment it can be deeply relaxing and induce the most amazing nights sleep.
