The Heritage Spa Experience is based on the ancient ritual of bathing where the body is heated and then cooled by a series of heat and cooling experiences. The extensive 7,000 sq ft area guides your body through a sensory journey with the ultimate aim of inducing deep relaxation. Useful tips: Each ‘experience’ has a different effect – read the recommended time to spend in each thermal experience. Temperatures and instructions are clearly posted outside each area. Cool off in between each heat experience by using the ice fountain and showers provided. Drink plenty of water to re-hydrate the body during your stay. Water is provided at the refreshments bar. Swimwear is obligatory in The Heritage Spa Experience area at all times. For hygienic reasons please shower before use and between each ‘experience’. Try following one of our recommended Heritage Spa Experience journey maps. If in doubt please ask one of the Spa team and they will be happy to guide and assist you.

Heat experience the experiences on offer have their roots in cleansing and beautifying the body. They originate from cultures dating back thousands of years: Sanarium This is a luxurious timber chamber combining the traditional pleasures of the Scandinavian sauna with the added benefit of steam infusion, mood lighting and background music. The ‘softer climate’ will allow you to spend longer in the cabin so the heat can deeply penetrate the body and soothe joints and muscles. Tepidarium In the Roman Spa the Tepidarium was a lukewarm lounging area usually located in the opulent hall of the spa. It gave spa bathers the opportunity to unwind whilst watching the world go by.

Caldarium A 2000 year old Roman tradition. The floor, benches and walls are heated offering a dry, warm environment for perspiring and cleansing the pores. Steam bath A humid heating sensation also known as a Turkish or Roman Steam Bath. Particularly beneficial for the respiratory system. The heat in combination with essential oils helps induce a state of deep relaxation. Rustic sauna cabin A Finnish tradition offering intense dry heat. An authentic copper kettle disperses aromatic water over the coals to create warmth and essence in the cabin. This large rustic space offers an ideal environment to unravel your mind and rest tired, aching muscles. Cooling experience It is important to cool down after using one of the heat experiences. Cooling the soft tissues not only moderates your body temperature, it invigorates the body and stimulates the nerve endings leaving you feeling refreshed & energised: Ice fountain Gently apply crushed ice onto the body to counteract the warming effects of the heat experience. Experience showers Fabulous showers offering a multi-sensory experience to help cool the body, from soft tropical rain to invigorating ice rain. A waterfall shower, bucket douche, body shower and Kneippe hose complete the experience. Hydro experience As two thirds of the human body is comprised of water it is no surprise that we are naturally drawn towards this nurturing natural element: Open air hydro-pool With water fountains for shoulder and neck massage, air loungers for full body massage plus individual jetpacks tailored to specific hydrotherapeutic needs. Foot baths Offering a gentle relaxing foot soak massage to soothe and stimulate the feet. Aromatic salts are provided to offer a variety of sensations and therapeutic effects. Resting zone Lie back and relax as you take some time out in the ‘Resting Zone’. Sip a cold beverage to hydrate as you appreciate the breathtaking country views.
