A LEADING North East spa is brightening up the cold, grey January days with a host of special deals and discounts.

The award-winning Spa at Ramside, at Ramside Hall Hotel, Golf and Spa, County Durham, has a number of spa break, spa day and evening offers to help chase off the winter blues.

For couples looking for the perfect break, the Spa Winter Escape offers a night in a Premier room, spa brunch, full spa access and a 30-minute treatment each, with prices starting at £219 per couple.

Alternatively, the Beat the Blues Twilight for two deal gives couples the chance to enjoy a relaxing evening.

For £135 per couple, it includes a two-course dinner in the Fusion restaurant on arrival from 5.30pm, a 30-minute treatment each and full use of the spa facilities until 9.30pm.

Also available is the New Year, New You spa day. Priced at £109 per person, it includes a welcome drink on arrival, use of the spa facilities from 10am-4pm, a two-course lunch in the Fusion restaurant and a 60-minute face or body treatment.

“Everyone knows that January can be a difficult time as people struggle to get over the highs of Christmas and are suddenly faced with the cold, dark January gloom,” said spa director Joanne Green.

“But a spa visit can be the perfect solution, giving the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind, enjoy a meal or get pampered with a luxurious treatment.

“This year we are running three fantastic deals designed to give our guests an uplifting boost, with treatments, spa time and delicious food. We want clients to relax and unwind and leave recharged and refreshed, whether they visit for an overnight stay, a twilight evening or for a day.”
