A trip to a spa should be a completely relaxing experience, free from worry. Take a few moments to read our handy tips before your visit to ensure you get the most out of your trip.

Opening hours
The swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna are open between 8.00am and 9.00pm. Treatments can be booked between 10.30am and 5.30pm by calling 015394 35592 or emailing us at Please note the pool is closed between 1pm and 2.15pm on Monday afternoons during term time for use by the local school.

All residents in the hotel receive complimentary access to our heated swimming pool, whirlpool and sauna from 2pm on the day of arrival.

There is a large car park at The Wordsworth Hotel & Spa, for spa guests to use free of charge.

Please make your way to the hotel reception, where you will be greeted and given your robe, slippers and towels and directions to the spa facilities. In order to make the most of your treatment we recommend that you arrive a minimum of 15 minutes prior to a scheduled appointment. Regrettably, late arrival will result in a reduced treatment time and there will be no deduction to the price charged.

All treatments are subject to availability. Some treatments may require a medical note from your physician. All of our treatment times include consultation and aftercare advice.

Spa Attire
Robes, slippers and towels are provided for your comfort during your spa day and we would advise changing into your robe before any spa treatments. There are lockers available for your use in our changing area. We recommend you wear underwear or swimwear under your robe. If you are having lunch we ask that you wear smart casual clothing while in the hotel dining area, for consideration of the other guests.

Spa Etiquette
Please respect all spa guests’ right to privacy and serenity. We ask that you turn off your mobile phone whilst in the spa.

Personal Belongings
We have a limited number of lockers available for us on a first come, first served basis. Alternatively, items may be left at Reception and a receipt obtained. The management cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to personal items not deposited in lockers.

Safety Risks
Please note that the swimming pool, spa bath, gym equipment and sauna are unmanned. Every person using the swimming pool, sauna and spa bath facilities do so at their own risk and children must be supervised at all times.
