I don’t know about you, but after months of working 9-5 and juggling friends, family, and work, I’m ready to get away from it all.
If you feel the same, here are some great UK getaway hotels and spas:

Located on the banks of the Irwell River, this award-winning hotel dominates the skyline with its beautifully curved and glass-fronted facade. The rooms all have stunning views, and this hotel also includes a spa and riverside restaurant. The spa has a range of relaxing massages and treatments to enjoy, and you can also take advantage of the sauna and beauticians.
Pennyhill Spa, Surrey
The spa is the stand-out at this hotel, and even the changing rooms are huge. Begin your experience in the heated ceramic relaxation beds before moving to the massage chairs, herbal saunas, ice cave, steam, plethora of pools, and a vast range of treatments with only the best in-house products.
Wyboston Lakes, London

For the ultimate in innovation, Cowroth Park is an environmentally-friendly hotel with a stylish interior and a gorgeous meadow of wildflowers. The spa is one of the most indulgent in the UK, and flooded with natural light. The eight treatment rooms are decorated with sculpture and art, and the heated pool even has underwater music.
The Scarlet, Cornwall
The multi-level, airy Scarlet hotel helps guests to feel relaxed from the moment they walk in. The spa offers Ayurvedic journeys, and features tented treatment rooms along with pods which are suspended in the dark. the indoor pool extends out into the outdoor one, and the wood-fired hot tubs overlooking the sea will make it hard to leave.
Chewton Glen, Hampshire
Chewton Glen combines impressive grandeur and classic elegance with a contemporary approach. The award-winning spa includes the largest hydrotherapy pool in Europe, and you’ll also find a 17m indoor pool lined with blue tiles and surrounded by huge Grecian-inspired columns. The crystal steam rooms and aromatherapy saunas are the ultimate in relaxation.
Ockenden Manor, West Sussex
The manor is Elizabethan in style, making the contemporary and modern spa a startling contrast. However somehow the two buildings simply work, and the spa includes both an indoor and outdoor pool, a gym, sauna, steam room and rain shower, along with a sundeck and relaxation area. The bedrooms here open up to a roof garden which gives guests superb views of the facility.
