Seek refuge and pamper yourself at one of the top spas in the Lake District during your Trout Hotel stay. In this blog, we give you all the reasons needed to visit our favourite 5* holistic havens during your getaway.
The Spa at Underscar
Nestled at the foot of Skiddaw and surrounded by ancient woodland, The Spa at Underscar is a truly tranquil place to relax and unwind. Just a short, twenty-minute drive from The Trout Hotel, it is ideal for a full or half day’s spa experience during your time in the Lake District.
Experienced therapists will take you on a journey of relaxation with holistic techniques using natural products which are kind to skin and to nature. There are many treatments to choose from including facials, massages, manicures and luxurious body treatments. Here are our top three picks:

While the body mask enriches your skin, you will be treated to a deeply relaxing face or scalp massage. Not only will you leave feeling refreshed and relaxed but your skin will feel radiant, soft and moisturised.
