An award-winning North East spa is to focus upon helping stressed-out super busy parents with a specially designed speedy break to help them put their feet up.

Ramside Spa, at Ramside Hall Hotel, Golf and Spa outside of Durham is launching a new two-hour pitstop, Spa School Run Express, which offers a relaxing experience between pick ups and drop offs.

The relaxing wellness package will be offered from 27 June to 10 July, just as schools wind down and began to break up for the summer holidays.

The special package offers a full two hour spa access in the grounds of the Ramside Hall Hotel, a two-course lunch at its Fusion Restaurant plus a choice of a 55-minute treatment: either an Elemis Pro Glow Facial, an Elemis Deep Tissue Massage or a Happy Hands & Feet pampering session.

Ramside Spa Director, Victoria Walker, said of the School Run Express session: “Parents by this time of year – heading into the summer holidays – are especially tired and frazzled.

“They’ve spent the past year helping their children get through school, homework, sport and extra-curricular activities.

.”Now it’s time for them to think about themselves and grab a well-deserved break, even a speedy one like this will make a huge difference.”
