About the Fletcher’s Cottage Spa: This spa is one of a kind offering ultimate relaxation with luxurious treatment rooms and a gorgeous spa garden.

The spa is flooded with light and looks over a walled garden. There are individual changing rooms with a shower and dressing tables. Also, a log burner keeps you warm while you lounge around in pale sofas. Drink champagne, sherry, or fresh fruit. There are also tea and cakes. There is no swimming pool available but there is a salt steam room and aroma sauna which is great before having your treatment.
