Five perfect Mother's Day spas

Spoil your Mum - she’s earned it!

Mum, Ma, Mam, Mom, Mummy - whatever you call that special lady in your life, Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and it's your chance to show her how much you care. And what better way to treat your Mum (or honorary Mum) than a day at an indulgent spa?

All along the East Coast you’ll find brilliant spas perfect for relaxing. So what sort of day would be best for your Mum?


Full-on indulgence

The Berkeley Spa

At The Berkeley in London your Mum can spend hours enjoying the serene atmosphere while receiving one of the many treatments on offer, such as a Jade Hot and Cold Stone Treatment from Bamform Haybarn Spa. After a relaxation session, there's a fantastic pool on the 7th floor with views across the capital for a chilled-out dip.

All this can be rounded off with lunch poolside, or a fashion-inspired afternoon tea in the hotel.

Prices from: £80


The express

We all know Mums are super busy and sometimes can’t always get away for a full day of relaxation. So why not indulge with her a relaxing but speedy beauty treatment? Promising an experience and not just a treatment, the City Retreat in Newcastle could be the perfect choice.

The spa menu is full of relaxing but time-bound options such as the Radiance Renew Facial which is sure to leave the Mum in your life feeling refreshed.

Prices from: £35


Back to nature

Fletcher’s Cottage Spa

Outside of Edinburgh you’ll find Archerfield House, home to the charming Fletcher’s Cottage Spa.

Take in the view of the walled herb garden or enjoy a glass of champagne next to a crackling log burner. Then experience one of the many opulent treatments available such as the Mud Cure Rasul experience before venturing into the Marine steam room or Herb Aroma sauna to unwind. Your mum will be so relaxed, she won’t want to leave.

Prices from: £50



The budget option

We all want to treat our Mums, but we don’t always have big cash to splash. That doesn’t mean your Mum has to miss out. Urban Express in Grantham offers great packages that won’t break the bank, such as the Afternoon Treat from £38pp, including one luxurious treatment, use of the club, 15m pool and thermal rooms, plus afternoon tea with Prosecco.

Prices from: £29

Move between the hot rooms and feel the tensions melt away before taking a bracing dip in the ice plunge pool.
