Our Spa Spy Review

First impressions

In the sleepy, Suffolk village of Lavenham, Weavers' House Spa is a very peaceful place to be. The fifteenth-century Swan Hotel is all low beams and roaring fireplaces, but the spa is in a modern extension in a quiet courtyard. Simple, lovely touches such as fresh macarons post-treatment and burning aroma candles take this spa to a blissful level.

What's on offer?

Weavers' House Spa has its own entrance so you won't get entangled with the hotel. Walk through the courtyard dotted with plants into reception which sets the tone for the spa with taupe walls, light wooden floors and warming scented candles. There are Temple Spa products to try and buy, a reception desk, and a slightly hidden area for manicures and pedicures. Staff warmly greeted us and asked us to fill in a consultation form.

The changing rooms are small but plush and follow the taupe and honey-wood decor. One wall is lined with wooden lockers and shelves with rolled-up towels. Further on are four private changing cubicles and a vanity desk with tissues, cotton wool, hairdryers and a large mirror. There are three WCs and showers with Temple Spa shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

The deceptively large thermal facilities are set around a Mediterranean-style courtyard with olive branches and scented candles filling the air. Both the sauna and steam room have a little bench outside the door so you can hang up your robe and take a break from the heat. The glass-fronted wooden sauna is large enough to fit six or eight people, and the equally big steam room is tiled in white. Both were perfectly heated during our visit, although the handle to the sauna was very hot to touch.

Outside is a sun-trap courtyard and a large vitality pool with enough room to relax with five or six other spa-goers. Sunken into the paving, the pool is relaxing rather than invigorating; the warm water is very soothing on a winter's day. There's a shower just next to the pool and lots of wicker chairs and loungers to take a pew and soak up the fresh air.

The spa lounge is where most people chill out during the day. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlook the pool courtyard making a light and bright space. Sofas, stools and individual armchairs are gathered in little enclaves, so you can chat without disturbing others. Taupes, nudes and pale woods are interspersed with pastel pink and green cushions. There are lots of magazine to read and a water station with freshly cut lemons and cucumber to make your own infusion.

The darker relaxation room is upstairs; cuddle up on the four chaise-longue-style beds -- each with a cushion and blanket -- and doze post treatment. The blinds are drawn so you really can drift off in peace. 

Tell us about the treatments

We had the Champagne and Truffles Deluxe treatment (90 minutes, £115).

My bright and bubbly therapist, Natasha, met me in the spa lounge and guided me upstairs to our treatment room. We talked through my consultation card. Natasha explained the steps of the treatment then let me choose the music that would accompany it.

I took off my robe and settled on the warm, water-filled hydrotherm mattress. Natasha asked me to take three deep breaths of a relaxing eucalyptus, mint and lavender oil blend before cleansing my feet with a warm cloth. She gently massaged my lower legs with long, sweeping movements before applying a refreshing cooling gel. Natasha moved on to my back and, using hot stones, began a soothing massage, coaxing me to relax and let go. She checked the pressure and continued with long, flowing movements, targeting my tight shoulders.

Natasha asked me to turn over ready for the facial. She cleansed twice with a balm that nourished my dehydrated skin. She then gently exfoliated my face so she could examine my skin and tailor the rest of the facial to my needs. Using soft upward motions, Natasha applied a facial oil and massaged my face, switching to smaller strokes around my eyes. She applied Temple Spa's Be Calm mask, massaging my scalp while it set. Natasha removed the first mask, applied a hydrating serum and then painted on a cool and refreshing blue algae mask. She massaged my hands and arms with the delightfully decadent Body Truffle moisturiser before removing the second mask. She massaged cold stones around my eyes to give an instant zing. Natasha finished the facial by applying a serum and moisturiser.

Giving me a moment to awaken from my treatment, Natasha showed me to the relaxation room and delightfully brought me a glass of Champagne and some truffles. What more could you ask for? My skin felt hydrated and plump; my tired, puffy eyes, refreshed.

My spa colleague tried the Mediterranean Sea Massage (60 minutes, £80), which is done on top of hydrotherm mattress so your body can be massaged front and back without needing to turn over. Her expert therapist, Rachel, was exactly the right combination of professional and caring.

Weavers' House Spa at The Swan at Lavenham has a good range of Temple Spa treatments from traditional facials, massages and body treatments to more unusual signature treatments. These includes the Swan Song for Two including a facial and massage, or the two-hour Weavers' House Hug massage. You can also try Touch Therapies, specialist treatments that help those living with and beyond cancer

Food facts

Food options are a little limited within Weavers' House Spa itself. You can enjoy cold food including salads, sandwiches and an impressive afternoon tea in the spa lounge but, if you fancy something hot, you will need to dress and head to the hotel.

We stayed in the spa and tried Tea Tox, a gluten-free, dairy-free afternoon tea. Moreish finger sandwiches, light scones and delicious cakes made for very full Spa Spies. 

We loved / We didn't love

We loved

The very calm spa atmosphere: We relaxed as soon as we stepped over the threshold; the Weavers' House Spa is warm, beautifully scented and very quiet.

The sumptuous treatments: The Temple Spa treatments have lovely finishing touches which make them feel special; we loved our lemon sorbet post-massage.

We didn't love

Our afternoon tea was positively delicious, but if you've spent you've paired your spa time with a wander through Lavenham, you may want to head to the hotel for a full meal.

Who do you think would like it?

Weavers' House Spa is relatively small so it lends itself to solo spa-goers or friends and couples

What bubble rating did you give this spa?

Once again, we awarded Weavers' House Spa a Good Spa Guide rating of 5 bubbles. The spa is very well managed and the staff are excellent; we drifted from treatment to pool to sauna without a care in the world. Our treatments were expertly delivered and the afternoon tea was so good we forgot it was almost good for us. 

Summer Spy visited in February 2017 and awarded it 5 Bubbles
