Natural Health Spa at Budock Vean

Set within the 4* Budock Vean Hotel and it’s 65 acres of peaceful gardens and woodlands leading down to the tranquil Helford River in south Cornwall, is the Natural Health Spa. This is a spa where the customer experience is first and foremost, and whose ‘Healing with Seasons’ spa days have been a huge hit with hotel guests and locals alike. Spa Manager Olivia Mitchell-Richards has been busy upskilling her team in blending their own aromatherapy oils and learning 'touch therapy' to help treat guests with a range of medical issues, including those undergoing treatment for, or in recovery from, cancer. 

The Natural Health Spa was one of the first in the UK to introduce treatments using CBD oil, and 3 types of blended CBD massage oil are now available for sale at the spa. The Natural Health Spa's 'Healing with the Seasons' spa days ensures guests have a seasonal menu of treatments that aims to give the body what it needs for each of the four seasons. Their new partnership with Made for Life Organics builds on that background with a range of holistic, massage, body wrap and facials. A range of Elemis body therapy and facial treatments are also available. 

For a sense of well-being spa day guests are encouraged to explore the hotel grounds, or book on to a sightseeing boat tour, paddleboard or kayak adventure from the hotel's private foreshore. All finished off with an indulgent cream tea!

"Long overdue but I wanted to say the biggest thanks to Zoe at the spa for the most marvellous treatment. Such an amazing experience! The whole thing was infact, the overnight stay and meal was the biggest treat, my personal highlight was the breakfast bar in the morning, heaven! Followed by a day of relaxation and pampering at the spa. An absolute highlight of my year so far! "
