Family friendly spas

Relax and unwind with the kids - it IS possible!

What better way is there to spend your holiday than relaxing in one of Britain's many luxury spas? And there's no reason your kids can't get in on the act too - Britain is home to lots of family friendly spas where the kids can get a taste of luxury too.

The Gleneagles Hotel

Where: Perthshire, Scotland
In the spa at the luxurious Gleneagles Hotel, your little ones can enjoy a ‘Little Miss' treatment- manicure, make-up and hair styling- so they feel just as important as you. If you've got teenagers in need of some pampering, you can treat them to one of the Teen Treatments (12-16 years), where they can pick from a manicure or make-up application. And with the children taken care of, you can unwind in the Turkish bath or therapy rooms.
