Why we think Rudding Park, an award-winning hotel, spa, golf and conference resort in Harrogate is the perfect place for a getaway.
Rudding Park was recently crowned Hotel of the Year 2018 at at the annual VisitEngland Awards for Excellence – which celebrates the best of English tourism.
The luxury resort, set in 300 acres of parkland, features top level facilities such as 90 bedrooms, a spa, two restaurants and a kitchen garden, private cinema, two golf courses and conference and events space.
And last year it also beat off competition after being awarded Best Hotel Spa in the UK by The Sunday Times and was voted Best New Spa in the UK by the Good Spa Guide.
Wellness of mind, body and soul are at the heart of The Spa, which features an indoor pool, juniper log sauna, mud rasul and a nail and beauty studio and hair studio.
The Roof Top Spa and Garden offers an extensive range of hydrotherapy and thermal experiences with views over the mature gardens.
At Rudding, there are plenty of overnight stay and spa packages to choose from, including bedrooms and suites, spa rooms, family rooms, cottages and luxury lodges.
Whether it’s a romantic getaway, a family treat or a spa day with the ladies, Rudding has it all.
Choose from contemporary fine dining at 3 AA Rosette Horto Restaurant or relaxed dining at Clocktower Bar and Restaurant.
Horto uses produce from Rudding Park’s Kitchen Garden so the menus are dictated by nature, the skill of the gardener and the flair of the chef.
At Horto it’s all about a food adventure and guests can choose from the al a carte menu or tasting menu, both of which change on a regular basis.
At Clocktower, guests can dine in the restaurant with its striking pink glass chandelier, sit in the bright airy conservatory next to the 400 year-old olive tree – or soak up the sun on the south-facing terrace, with views over the beautiful gardens – the perfect spot for alfresco dining.
Whether it’s lunch, dinner, or a bite to eat from the bar menu, guests are welcome to make the most of the outdoors and visit the Kitchen Garden.
Clocktower Bar is a great place to meet for drinks, whether it’s for coffee or a cocktail. A bar menu is also available with a range of dishes including the ever popular Yorkshire Tapas.
Rudding Park recently introduced Spa Days and Roof Top Spa Experiences with Afternoon Tea, so guests can combine a love of spa with the quintessentially British Afternoon Tea at Horto – and why not add a glass of fizz?
