Ideal after a day exploring the nearby Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Step inside the spa at Bedruthan and you won’t want to leave. It has stellar views over Mawgan Porth beach and a luxurious hydropool from which you can enjoy it. Let the jets knead away your tensions, then head into the eucalyptus steam room or cedar-wood sauna. Outside, the Sensory Spa Garden takes inspiration from the elements, with hot tubs, salt scrubs and a fire pit where you can relax with your feet soaking in a steamy foot bath. Bliss.
