A luxury spa situated just outside of Greater Manchester has been named among some of the best in the whole country.

Carden Park can be found on a sprawling country estate in Cheshire, and boasts a number of luxurious amenities such as hot tubs, saunas and even heated swimming pools to be enjoyed all year round.

The spa also offers guests unique thermal experiences, which include fire pits and thermal pods alongside more traditional treatments and facilities.

Also situated on the 1000-acre site is a number of acclaimed restaurants and bars, all offering fine dining experiences and tailor-made drinks and cocktails.

Additionally, the spa boasts its own hotel with 200 bedrooms and four luxury suites, ideal for those wanting to make a weekend out of their trip.

Though the most talked-about feature of the spa is its huge sauna with panoramic country views through floor-to-ceiling windows.

And now, Carden has won itself a huge accolade at the 2022 World Spa Awards, where it beat fifteen other spas to be crowned the Best Country House Hotel Spa in England. 

Emma Priddling, spa director at the Spa at Carden Park, said: “It is another exciting feat for us to be recognised as the best hotel spa. We are truly dedicated to serving our guests with the very best when it comes to spa and wellness and are pleased to be leading the way.

“We are extremely proud to find ourselves amongst such strong competition and it is an honour to be crowned ‘Best Country House Hotel and Spa’ on an international level.”
