The spa also has four treatment rooms offering a range of therapeutic treatments, which make the most of the natural spring waters and herbs in the manor’s gardens. There’s also a billiard room and a colourful lounge, where you can order a treat from the all-day menu and savour the panoramic views. Doors open on to the terrace, which wraps around the house, with the gardens beyond.
