Stuck for gift ideas this Christmas? A trip to the Devonshire Spa in Buxton could be the answer with Christmas well and truly on its way…
Rather than buying your loved ones more things they don’t need, your pennies could provide them with a unique experience in the town’s most magnificent building. With treatments starting at £40 for 30 minutes and the seasonal offers starting at £58, this luxurious award-winning facility is very affordable and the health benefits are enormous, especially as an antidote to the seasonal overindulgence and the weather.
From massages to scrubs to facials, The Devonshire Spa offers a variety of bespoke treatments and as part of the package, you get access to the hydrotherapy pool, reflexology foot baths, essence-filled sauna, steam room, aroma room and monsoon shower. To complete your visit, guests are invited to the tranquil relaxation room following your treatment and time in the spa – a chance to recuperate and enjoy a cup of tea with a magazine before leaving.
The Spa is part of the University of Derby’s campus in Buxton, formerly the Devonshire Royal Hospital (which offered spa treatments as early as 1913) and is the first place in the UK to launch a course in spa management. If you haven’t seen Buxton’s largest unsupported dome in Europe, this could be the ideal opportunity to go. Likewise, any locals who haven’t been to the spa yet should experience the hydropathic legacy of their town.
A gift voucher is the perfect gift for a couple as it gives them the chance to unwind and revitalise together. Equally it makes for a great day out with friends or just time for you. Some of Buxton’s best restaurants are a short walk away for them to really spoil themselves with lunch or dinner afterwards. Gift vouchers can be purchased in person over the phone (see number below).
There’s a large selection of beauty and skin products also available, from luxury brands such as Caudalie, Comfort Zone, Ishga, Jessica Nails and a make-up range Mii; so if you enjoyed the products used during your treatment, it’s almost certain you’ll be able to buy it here too.
