  •   The use of the spa is for those persons named on the booking form only and no outside guests (insurance policy)
  • Guests are advised to read the safety booklet regarding the spa. Strictly no candles in the spa room or food and drink to be consumed in the spa as this will contaminate the water. The spa will then have to be drained and cleaned and then filled with water. The spa will be out of use for 2 days and it normally takes 20 hours to heat back up to temperature before use. A charge of £50 will be required. We do advise people to shower before they use the hot tub as perfumes and deodrants etc will also contaminate the water and make it cloudy. There is an additional shower in the Frogs Retreat room.
