This week I took full advantage to being off work and treat myself to a spa day with my bestie!

Linden Hall is part of the Macdonald hotels and resorts group and located just outside of Morpeth, Northumberland.

I was surprised at first how easy it is to get to from Newcastle. We arrived at 10am and the weather was cold yes but the sun was shining so we were able to see the surroundings and it’s lovely golf course.

The facilities at Linden Hall include full Golf Course, 12 metre pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. They also have a relaxation room where you can get free teas and coffee from and a gym too!

Throughout the day we took our time relaxing by the pool, reading magazines, gossiping then got ready and went for our champagne afternoon tea. The French pastries were to die for! Once we stuffed our faces with the food and champagne we went for a little stroll around the grounds and it really was beautiful. There no place like Northumberland!

The staff were lovely especially the lady helping out on the spa as they were short staffed. Due to the staffing levels our treatments were not until 5pm and I was a little worried at first that we would get bored however time ticked by nicely and the ladies were able to do the treatments early. We were also able to book another treatment in which was amazing. I got the full body massage and facial and it was lovely.

The only thing that I noticed was the changing rooms were old and the lockers were TINY! And there was mud around the pool and bits of gravel however throughout the day the ladies were coming in to clean so it wasn’t too bad as they obviously do clean! Again it may have been a staffing issue, however, the day as a whole was great, especially when you have the whole spa to yourself!
