Bodysgallen Hall & Spa,

A woodland walk leads to a gothic tower

An ancient mansion surrounded by meticulously kept gardens, Bodysgallen Hall and Spa in Wales is super friendly, super professional and welcoming, with original fireplaces, fresh flowers and leather-bound books in abundance.  In amongst the ancient splendour is the spa, a relaxing environment with leisure facilities for the whole family and an array of spa treatments using the Aromatherapy Associates and Environ Skin Care skincare collections.

The gardens are a beautiful experience in their own right. Set in 200 acres of parkland there is a rare 17th-century parterre of box hedges and herbs, a walled rose garden, lily pond, potager and follies. A woodland walk leads to a gothic tower; another to a mountain-top obelisk.
