There aren’t many things I enjoy more than indulging in a little pamper time. Whether it’s a whole day spent relaxing and unwinding in a spa, or just a few hours. There’s something about that tranquil atmosphere that leaves me feeling deeply rested. So when Seaham Hall invited me along to review their Twilight package, how could I resist the lure of a fluffy towelling robe and the chance to finally read my ever-growing stack of fashion and travel magazines? It seemed like the perfect excuse to slow down and take some time to myself.
Situated on a cliff top above Seaham Beach, Seaham Hall is an impressive Georgian estate which now offers a beautiful boutique hotel and Serenity Spa. With a range of packages available, I was invited to try out their very popular Twilight package. This offers full use of the spa facilities from 6-10pm, and a two course meal at their Pan Asian restaurant, The Ozone. Priced at £47.50 Monday to Thursday, and £52.50 Friday to Sunday, it’s ideal for anyone looking to unwind after a hard day at work and spend a few hours indulging themselves.
As with most spas, the atmosphere in Seaham Hall’s Serenity Spa is relaxed and friendly. Guests are invited to choose whether they’d prefer to dine in their robes (before or after spa use) to ensure maximum comfort, with the restaurant itself looking out onto the beautiful grounds. It’s hard to imagine you’re only a short drive from both Sunderland and Durham. With its air of grandeur, Seaham Hall’s grounds feel like the perfect setting for self-indulging. With a considerable menu of classic Pan Asian cuisine, The Ozone has something suited to everyone’s tastes. Be warned though: the food is delicious, portions are generous and dessert is definitely not to be missed! So if you choose to visit the restaurant before your spa session, prepare yourself for a serious food baby.
