Who likes to be pampered and relax all day? Well if you are saying YES that’s me, look no further than Ragdale Hall. Recently my partner and I spent the day at Ragdale hall, we absolutely loved it. Being first time parents we do not get a lot of time together and to relax, so for us this was amazing.
We had spoken about doing a spa day before and then it kind of got pushed to the side, as things do when you have children. Finally I said let’s get it booked. We looked around at a few different places to go to. We both decided on Ragdale hall. It had great reviews and I also knew people who have been there and said how amazing it was.
The package we booked was Twilight Taster Evening and this cost £71 each (£81 Friday – Sunday) My partner wasn’t sure a spa day was for him, this is why we decided to just do the taster package. I knew he would like it and want longer when we got there though.
We arrived to the most Beautiful place, the building looked amazing. We walked inside and was greeted by a lady who asked if it was a first time to Ragdale. She showed us through to a large conservatory area and offered us a drink. The setting was so peaceful and relaxed. It was like we had walked into another world. My partner and I both sat and had a coffee. Whilst we were having our coffee we filled out a form with names, address and medical issues if we had any. Once we had finished our coffee we went to get changed to go to the spa. I could not wait, I was so excited to be able to relax and chill out, with no children, Just me and my partner. Every where we went was so relaxing.
First of all we decided to have a swim in the 25 meter pool, we did a couple of lengths and then decided that swimming was far to energetic.
We decided to go and relax in the absolutely amazing candle pool. This pool was out of this world. The water is warm, the atmosphere is as close to heaven as you can get. The candle pool is set in a beautiful cavern. The lights are very low and dark and as you can see there are small lights in the ceiling. The is gentle music playing in the background. If you close you eyes for a moment, you literally could be anywhere. I didn’t want to get out of here. The other half said to me how amazing he thought it was. He thought a spa day was for ladies. Any men out there ask him, it’s not just for the ladies. If you want to relax in here on your own there are small pods where you can go, or you can stay in the large area and relax if you are with a group or friends. Below is a picture of the candle pool.
After we came out of the candle pool, we decided to go to one of the showers where you go in a hot shower and then move to a cooler shower, I have to say it was good, we both had a good laugh. Whilst in the cool shower there is a minty smell which is so refreshing.
The next room we went to was a room called the Though Zone. This is kind of like a Sauna but not as hot. When you sit in the seats you lay back a little bit. Then when you look up to the ceiling there is lights shining that you can sit and watch, whilst quite music plays. This was my favourite dry room. I just didn’t want to move from here. Even thought this room is called the Thought Zone, I didn’t think about anything whilst in here. I sat back, and thought about nothing, no one and just relaxed. You can relax by putting your feet up, in the middle there is a feature.
After I manged to drag my self from the Thought Zone, we went to the colour-flow room. In this room a stream of colour flows to the middle of the room. Very relaxing, not my favourite room but was still great.
In this package you could also choose from a back and scalp massage, prescription facial or body polish and massage. We both choose the back and scalp massage. I have to say the most relaxing thing in the world and the best massage I have ever had. After a full day of relaxing and being pampered we had a light lunch in the Verandah Bar to finish off with. All this relaxing is hungry work.
There are so many different rooms and places you can relax in. rather than me spoil it for you and tell you about everything, try it for you self. I can promise Ragdale will not disappoint. The staff were amazing, the rooms and atmosphere is out of this world. have a look at Ragdale Hall website HERE and book you spa day. There is so much you can do and so many different packages you can choose from.
