Hero prosecco

Over the years we’ve witnessed the average spa-goer head into two camps: the ‘my-body-is-a-temple’ earth Mother yogi type who wouldn’t dream of drinking alcohol in a spa, and the ‘I need some pampering and a treat’ type who want nothing more than a natter and a glass of Prosecco in a hot tub with a pal - treatments optional.

With World Prosecco Day now celebrated every summer, we take a look at the best spas to enjoy a glass of bubbles in. See you poolside, darling.

Nàdarra Spa at The Coniston Hotel Country Estate

Location is key at Coniston with rolling hills, enchanting woodland and a huge lake for the taking. The best place to enjoy those views? From one of two outdoor infinity pools or in side-by-side copper roll top tubs in the spa garden (for bubbles in bubbles), or in the relaxation area with its flickering fire. Now where did I put that waiter?

The Spa at Breedon Priory

Spa hosts are tasked with serving glasses of Prosecco to guests at Breedon Priory (yep), where two outdoor vitality pools are heated to 36 degrees – watch steam rise from the water on cooler days. Gaze across acres of Derbyshire countryside from the infinity edge pool - taking sips as you drink in the views – or admire the pretty spa garden beside the outdoor pool.

The Spa in the Garden at Stratton House

If you can only ever imagine sipping a glass fizz whilst tucking into scones with jam and cream then head to Stratton House for a mani/pedi followed by afternoon tea. Ask to take tea in the period walled garden or grab your glass and slip into the hot tub with its garden views. As a standalone spa made almost entirely of glass bi-folds, garden vistas are guaranteed whatever the weather.

It's hard to go wrong with a spa overlooking a beach - whether you’re in the outdoor pool, marine thermal suite, double treatment room or Terrace Lounge, you’ll see the sea (and exhale) at Saunton. Book a Twilight Spa session and watch the sun go down over the water - glass of Prosecco in hand – or star-gaze from the rooftop relaxation area.

Ragdale Hall Spa

Ragdale’s cult following shows no signs of abating with so much on offer, we’d need all day to list it all. Guests short on time should make a dash for the rooftop pool - with its infinity edge perfect for gazing. Staying overnight? Get dressed up and enjoy cocktail in the spa’s new Twilight Bar.
