About

Our space

Specialising in creating memorable spa day experiences with a unique twist, our quirky boutique garden spa has been created to provide an ethos of exclusivity. Because I only ever allowing one group package per day, guests are offered the time and space be able to  let go and relax with the rare opportunity to enjoy our space and each others company in complete privacy. 

Vintage garden spa was designed ‘exclusively for you’.  

Our style, captures the essence of a quaint, forgotten feel of older times. Where social media, mobile phones and busy juggling acts between work and home life didn’t exist.  

Offering you a moment to ’step back in time’, to an era when taking time for tea and rest was important.

Whether it’s as a couple wanting to spend a romantic day together, or the chance to have a good old catch up with friends & family. My purpose is to help you re-connect with the people you love in one special, timeless moment. 

Our log cabin is warmly inviting from the moment you step inside, from the vintage decor to up-cycled preloved furniture, you’ll instantly feel like you’ve entered another world. Our heated floor and vintage wing back chairs will help you to snuggle up on a cold winters day while you put your feet up to relax on our footstools. Bring a book, flick through our magazines or even relax with our adult colouring books while having a good old natter and you will have the makings of a perfectly cosy, restful day. 

A wonderfully energising and invigorating hydrotherapy jet spa is tucked privately behind our log cabin and while you relax and soothe aching muscles, you can look out from under our beautiful pergola with rambling vine onto our private garden with a lovely array of plants and shrubs.

Treatments range from a variety of massages. Whether you prefer hot stones or hands on, you can be assured your treatments will be perfectly tailored for you. Our facials also include massage techniques to relax, ease away tension and bring out your inner glow.

 I am able to cater for groups between 2-4 people. Our Spa day packages also include a homemade vintage afternoon tea with freshly prepared sandwiches, warm scones with jam and clotted cream and a variety of lovingly prepared cakes and bakes, served on traditional vintage crockery.

I also offer limited individual treatments and mini spa packages for one.

 I am proud to have attained a 5* excellent food hygiene rating since opening and have also received both Trip Advisor’s 

‘Centre of Excellence’ Award and ‘Travellers choice’ award the past two years running. 

My goal is to go above and beyond for all my guests and I am incredibly grateful to have achieved such lovely feedback from visitors, achieving 5* reviews across all review platforms. 

What was once an idea to create a local and personal experience for guests to come and take time out to relax, has since flourished to become a much loved haven for guests, many of whom travel from all across the Yorkshire region and return time and time again.

I am a big believer that the little things matter, and for this reason nothing is overlooked to ensure you have not only a relaxing, but memorable visit.

The best way to experience everything that Vintage Garden Spa has to offer is to come and visit ! 

Meet  Sam

 Hello ! I’m Sam and I am the owner and sole therapist at Vintage Garden Spa. 

Before opening the spa, I worked as a mental health nurse and clinical team leader in the NHS for over 15 years. After many years working with people with many mental and physical health issues. I understand that there is much more to our overall well being than just focusing on the treatment of health concerns, after they have become a problem. 

Having been qualified in massage for a number of years. I could see what a positive difference complimentary therapies could make and in late 2016, I made the decision to leave behind the medical model of health to retrain and work in a more holistic way.

As we now know, there are many factors that enable us to feel ‘healthy’ and each single positive thing we do for ourselves, to help us feel good, contributes to our over all health & well-being.

My love of hands on therapies led to me to create a unique and safe space. The treatments I provide are not solely based on physical results, they are tailored to you in a way that will help you to ‘let go’ of the accumulated stress we all too often carry with us. 

 We all carry negative stress in different ways, whether it shows in our emotions, behaviour or physically with areas of tension, aches or pains. We all may have common problems, yet we are each individual with different needs.

 My purpose is to help provide a solution that works best for you.

 Rather than offer many different services which can be sometimes confusing to choose, I keep the services I offer simple, yet very effective and tailor the way I work to meet your needs. 

 I understand that these may change from one appointment to the next and it’s the reason why I allow plenty of time between client appointments, so we can discuss any changes and ensure you get the full treatment time you have booked.

 The time you book with me is ‘your time’ and it’s important to me that this time is valuable to you.

 We often forget to look after ourselves and we forget how good it feels ! 

 In the very busy and stressful lives we often all lead, time seems such a rare commodity and we can sometimes feel guilty for taking time out for ourselves when we seem to have endless ‘to do’ lists.

  So please, allow me to take this moment to gently remind you….

The most important person on that list is you.

 I hope to welcome you soon ! 

 Sam
