People have been coming to Hertfordshire for many years as an alternative to heading abroad with the summer crowds. With so much variety on their doorstep they see no need to stress themselves out just to go to foreign parts. Hertfordshire has superb weather for much of the year and more ruins than Rome and Florence combined. Add to that the delicious regional cuisine, fresh from the farm, and some of the best hotels in the United Kingdom, and you have all the makings of a wonderful break. Many visitors to Hertfordshire spend the money they saved by not going abroad on living it up at a Hertfordshire spa hotel, to enjoy a full range of superior facilities.
You can find spa hotels in Hertfordshire all over the county, from Letchworth to Tring, and whether you prefer the open countryside for a spa break or a more urban setting in a town like St. Albans you'll have plenty of choice. At a Hertfordshire spa hotel such as Village Hotel London Watford or Pendley Manor in Tring you'll be able to enjoy the sorts of spa treatments once reserved for the super-rich and international celebrities. Hot tubs and indoor heated pools, tennis courts and sauna treatments are all standard facilities at these establishments, and they no longer cost you the earth, so treat yourself next time you're here.
These top-end hotels have plenty of other things to offer their guests in addition to the treatments on offer. The cuisine tends to be superior too, often prepared by top chefs, and the guestrooms are often themed and personalised, so you really are treated like royalty here. At the same time you'll have access to many attractions in the county such as Hatfield House and Knebworth, two of the UK's most impressive stately homes. The kids will love having their own pool to splash about in if you choose a family-friendly spa hotel in Hertfordshire, and there are plenty of theme parks and adventure playgrounds in the county for them to enjoy too.
