5. Vu Spa at the Swan Hotel
"One of the nice things about the Vu Spa in Cumbria is its unexpectedness," says Tamara. "The Swan Hotel is like a family-friendly pub, making the Espa treatments and Leighton Denny nail bar feel extraordinarily indulgent. They're also eminently affordable. Colourful deckchairs flank the indoor large pool – a nice touch of British eccentricity."
