Boasting as the perfect countryside getaway, be inspired for your next trip with picture-perfect views, beautifully furnished bedrooms and unrivalled leisture facilities that’ll make you never want to leave.

We caught up with Spa & Wellness Manager Helen Griffiths for an insight into what a typical visit to The Spa at Bowood would be.

What is the first thing a customer should experience when they arrive at your spa?

FEEL: Relaxed as soon as they step inside the door. SEE: A welcoming smile from our reception team. SMELL: The beautiful aromas of lavender, geranium, chamomile, frankincense essential oils from the TEMPLESPA ‘KEEP THE PEACE’ diffusers that we have located all around the spa. We excel at hitting all of the senses for a relaxing and unwinding experience.


What is the one thing that you’d like your customer to remember about your spa?

Simply put, a superior service – we know it’s the little touches that make all the difference. From the moment you arrive, our team are on hand to ensure you have everything you need for a memorable visit, where you feel truly pampered.  


Which is your best-selling treatment and why?

This is a close call between two! MY KINDA SKIN,  this prescription facial is totally tailored to our guest’s needs and is utterly relaxing with those special TEMPLESPA touches. And finally DRIFT AWAY, the name says it all; with this deeply relaxing body massage you really will be drifting away. Guests love the blend of calming essential oils used for this treatment.

What drew you to partner with TEMPLESPA treatment and products?

The resort is set within an English country estate and therefore I wanted to place a luxurious British brand to elevate the Bowood spa experience. The products are excellent quality, yet reasonably priced, as well as a little exclusive. The feedback for the treatments and products has been superb and we are delighted to be partnered with TEMPLESPA.


What is the typical customer experience at your spa?

The Spa at Bowood is a haven for relaxation. Expect a warm welcome from our experienced therapists, fantastic facilities with sweeping scenic views, and exceptional spa treatments with time to unwind in our Relaxation Lounge post-treatment. The perfect tonic for a hectic life.

What is your USP or biggest selling point as a spa?

The closeness to nature - we are nestled among the 2000-acre Bowood Estate with the most stunning poolside views. You can just feel the tension melt away as you relax in the Jacuzzi and watch the deer wander by.


Which is your personal favourite TEMPLESPA product and/ or treatment and why?

MOST REVEALING – this Glowing Skin Oxygen Peel has literally transformed my skin!

Spa treatment wise, the CHAMPAGNE & TRUFFLES facial is PURE indulgence. It even includes a glass of Champagne and a delicious chocolate truffle to enjoy post-treatment.

Fusing an idyllic English country estate with state of the art facilities and an award-winning spa brand, it’s hard to find the reasons not to visit Bowood Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort. Discover their Luxury Spa Pamper Break for an extra indulgent experience you’ll never forget.
