The Woodland Spa - a luxurious Lancashire retreat

(Styled Shoots) (Inspiration) (Featured Suppliers)


From the moment you enter Crow Wood Leisure you know you’re somewhere lovely. Immediately as you open the door to The Woodland Spa you’re enveloped in that lovely weighty quietness that makes you relax. 

I just love this place. It’s warm and inviting and comfortable and relaxing. The large round hydrotherapy pool is like being in the best bath in the world; warm and with lots of different water jets to explore. Heated tiled loungers around the side make a perfect place to warm up and relax if you’ve had a dip in the outdoor pool. The outside hot tubs are definitely worth a sit in and if you’re lucky enough to be there when it’s sunny there’s plenty of space to sit outside.

The saunas and steam rooms cater for different heat tolerances so there will definitely be at least one you’ll be comfortable sitting in, and you can cool down in the experience Showers. I think my favourite area in the Thermal Experience though is the Serenity Pool. Low lights, sparkly light ceiling, lovely warm water and lots of comfy loungers to relax on. Each one has a wall light for reading too so you can have some quiet time without disturbing the low lights.

The spa also offers a full range of treatments in its lovely rooms so you can pamper yourself to the extreme. 

Follow up your relaxation with a delicious afternoon tea in Bertram’s Restaurant, and even make it extra special with a glass of champagne.

The Woodland Spa offers luxury hen parties from just £39 per person plus the Bride to be qualifies for complimentary access to the Thermal Experience. Woodland Spa’s Thermal Experience on its own is perfect for a few hours of total downtime. They offer full spa day packages too if you want to extend your experience and have recently opened three luxury bedrooms in addition to the spa apartment for a weekend of pampering, fun and relaxation. A luxury hen weekend has got to be just the perfect preparation for your big day.

Go on your own, with girlfriends, with your mum or with your groom-to-be. There’s something for everyone to enjoy at Woodland Spa and you’ll come away relaxed and ready to tackle the next stage of your wedding planning.
