Whether you're planning a girly catch-up or simply need some time out, nothing shouts indulgence like the prospect of a deluxe spa escape.

And happily Britain is brimming with state-of-the-art retreats, from The Gilpin in Lake District - where you can wallow in a marathon three-hour treatment with swimming, massages and champagne - to the glorious Scarlet spa, with log-fired hot tubs perched on the Cornish coast.

These places are the very epitome of zen, with nothing more taxing to think of than where your next soothing silk body wrap is coming from.

Prepare to relax and unwind with serious dedication via our pick of the UK's finest lakeside, seaside and city-based spas, with a signature treatment for each.
