A luxury Essex stay at an award-winning destination spa set among historic gardens and woodland - includes breakfast, optional three-course dinner and more

Just an hour's drive from London and 10 minutes from the quaint seaside town of Frinton-on-Sea, you'll find Lifehouse Spa & Hotel. A destination spa before it was ever a hotel, this is a place that is designed around relaxation and well-being. Surrounded by 130 acres of dewy historic gardens and woodland, it's the perfect place to pair soothing treatments with a large helping of fresh country air.

Awarded Five Bubbles by the Good Spa Guide and a finalist for the Professional Beauty Best UK Residential Spa, Lifehouse Spa & Hotel lives up to its name with decadent Clarins and Decléor treatments, a gym, an indoor pool and plenty of beauty facilities.

The spa features a hydrotherapy pool, salt inhalation room, sauna, steam room and countless treatment rooms. The restaurant strikes the perfect balance between healthy and indulgent, with fresh, nourishing food and more than a few treats in the mix.

Good to know
