Britain's top-notch spa hotels offer a sanctuary from the stresses of daily life, boasting state-of-the-art facilities, bubbling hot tubs and calming relaxation spaces - with glorious views to match the heavenly retreats. Whatever you're after for a spa weekend in the UK, there are spa hotels in the city, overlooking the sea and nestled in beautiful woodland for you to truly feel a world away during a holiday at home in Britain.

Spa breaks don't have to cost the Earth either as most hotels provide free access for guests to use the superb facilities which include infinity pools, hot tubs and aromatherapy steam rooms. And for those who want to truly indulge, you'll find an impressive range of spa treatments and rituals to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

At a UK spa hotel, it's as much about the location as it is the spa, where you can make the most of your surroundings and enjoy local ingredients in your treatments. At The Gainsborough Bath Spa, for instance, you can reap the benefits of Bath's natural mineral-rich water at the only natural thermal spa within a hotel in Britain. Spa lovers in the Lake District can feel at one with nature as they unwind with a treatment in a glass-fronted and lake-facing room at the Gilpin Hotel & Lake House.
