Love spas, but hate having to share them with over-excited wave-creating swimmers, sweaty sauna dwellers and people who reserve all the best loungers with their towels? Then you need to get yourself booked into one of Cambridgeshire’s best kept secrets – Sandpiper Pool & Spa. Tucked down a quiet country road in Somersham, this beautiful spa is unique in the fact that when you book a spa session, the entire spa and pool is yours to enjoy in private. We’re talking a huge, warm private pool, a sauna, rainforest shower, steam room, covered al fresco Jacuzzi, ice room and a snow room with real snow in it (one of only 5 snow rooms in spas in the UK). With all these amazing spaces at your disposal, you can enjoy the health benefits from the heat to cold experience in complete privacy.
As you’d expect, relaxation is a key part of the experience, and something that is easily achievable here when you consider you’ve got your own relaxation room with heated waterbeds (and mesmerising lava lamp lights), a chillout lounge with comfy sofas and blankets to snuggle under, a seating area looking out onto the garden and a tranquil, secluded spa garden. And no spa is complete without a treatment or two, and Sandpiper has two beautiful treatment rooms with a whole host of relaxing options offered by mobile spa company My Blissful Retreat.
There are lots of different packages to choose from, starting at just £50, whether you just want to just enjoy the spa with your loved one for a couple of hours to a full-on celebration with a group of hens, an anniversary treat or a baby shower (there are discounts up to 15% for group bookings). If you’re making the most of a full day here (and why wouldn’t you!) the six, seven and eight hour sessions include a buffet lunch or tea. The spa can be booked for two – 12 people for two – eight hours and there is a minimum age of 14. Heaven!
