Nestled in the heart of the Cotswold countryside, Cowley Manor is on first appearance a traditional country hotel. The C-Side spa however, is located in an outbuilding that is anything but conventional; made from glass that looks as though it is carved into the hill and flanked by a slate-lined pool this spa has the wow-factor.
In addition to an indoor pool, sauna and steam room, the spa also has a heated outdoor pool and sun-lounger area which come summer turns into a Ibiza-style hangout complete with waiter service, chill out music and cocktails.
The roster of treatments focuses on massage but you’ll also find facials, detox wraps and manicures. Not content with using ordinary beauty products for treatments, C-Side spa have created their own range; Green & Spring utilises natural resources such as herbs and spring waters which are all sourced locally for the optimum medicinal and beauty benefits.
