Unwind on the Coast - Spas in Suffolk


Massages, facials, yoga classes and plenty of time to relax – what’s not to love about a spa break? And the Suffolk Coast has plenty of choice, whether you are looking for a family-friendly break or some well deserved me-time...

Best self-catering 

One of the best ways to discover the beauty of Suffolk’s coast is to be under your own steam, free to choose which beach to visit or in which of the picturesque seaside towns to spend the day. But that doesn’t mean you can’t relax and enjoy some pampering. Suffolk Cottage Holidays offer a range of properties where you can create your very own spa at home.

Why not try Old Hall Barn in Darsham, a beautiful property sleeping up to 14 people. Set in an imposing 16th century barn on the top of a hill, not only is there every creature comfort, it also benefits from its own luxury sauna and large hot tub in the garden. And if that wasn’t enough, you can even arrange for a spa treatment in the comfort of the property with My Personal Sanctuary. So all you need to do is pull on a dressing gown and get ready for some serious relaxation.  

Or Arch House, just minutes from Thorpeness, Aldeburgh and the Suffolk Coast, sleeps 12 and has a hot tub and a sauna for you to enjoy after a bracing walk or cycle ride by the sea. Perfect to relieve tired and aching muscles.  

Best for families

Ufford Park, Woodbridge

“Family-friendly” and “spa hotel” don’t often go together, but Ufford Park has made it a priority to welcome children and adults through its doors. Grown-ups will love the thermal suite with ‘fire and ice’ experiences and menu of treatments, including massages and facials, whilst the kids can enjoy the indoor swimming pool, beautiful grounds and bike hire. Mums can also take advantage of a pampering day with their daughters for a special occasion.

Best for couples:

Seckford Hall, Woodbridge

This beautiful country house hotel is set to get even better when the first phase of its refurbished spa opens this spring. The new spa, housed in a magnificent 1550’s Tudor Tithe Barn is poised to be the most stunning facility and will offer guests an array of new spa and beauty services. The second phase, due to finish in June will see the addition of a double treatment room, perfect for couples to enjoy a treatment together.  Add to that a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and gym and you’ll never want to leave.

Best day spa:

Priya Spa, Southwold

The charming seaside town of Southwold is a haven for families – the beautiful beach, family-friendly restaurants, shops and plenty of activities to keep even the littles ones busy. This should leave plenty of time for the grown ups to visit this lovely little spa at the Swan Hotel. Relax under the watchful eye of Tanya Bradbury who offers a range of treatments incorporating her knowledge of Eastern and Western traditions in her work.
