From Saturday 1st August our Verbena Spa will begin to offer treatments to hotel residents. 

Thursday 30th July

We are delighted to announce that from Saturday 1st August our Verbena Spa will begin to offer treatments to hotel residents. 

Our heat facilities, apart from the outdoor pool and jacuzzi, will remain closed.  We are still awaiting further government guidance on how the heat facilities can be operated to maintain guest and staff safety at all times.  For this reason, our Verbena Spa will currently not be open to non-resident guests for the time being.

Once we know we can offer the full Verbena Spa experience to our wonderful day guests we will announce this on social media and our website.

We thank you for your patience and look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Verbena Spa very soon.


Thursday 9th July.

Further to the governement announcement earlier today we are delighted to confirm that our outdoor heated pool will be open for hotel residents from Saturday 11th July.  There will be allocated time-slots for swimming which will be confirmed on check-in.

We will confirm the re-opening date for the Verbena Spa very soon and please keep an eye on this page and social media for updates.


Thursday 25th June

Further to the government announcement on Tuesday 23rd June, we were saddened to be told that we won't be able to open our Verbena Spa including the out-door swimming pool with the rest of the hotel on 4th July as previously hoped.

The UK hospitality association is lobbying hard to bring forward the date at which the remaining closed elements of the industry can open safely.  We are optimistic that the government will give the green light to open our outdoor pool at some stage in July,  hopefully in time for the summer holidays.

We sincerely hope that the temporary closure of our Verbena Spa & Pool will not deter you from visiting us in early July.  We are sure that our warm hospitality, delightful food and drink offering (that can still be enjoyed on the poolside terrace) will provide a wonderful relaxing experience for our guests over the coming weeks.

As this situation is continually evolving, please check our website & social channels for up-dates and the latest information.  If you would like to discuss your reservation please reach out on or call the hotel directly on 01439 770766.

We very much look forward to welcoming you (back) soon.

With our best wishes

The Team at the Feversham Arms

Saturday 21st March 2020

Further to our announcement yesterday and inline with the UK Spa Association and government recommendations the out-door swimming pool will now be closed.


Friday 20th March 2020

Following today’s Government announcement, we have taken the decision to close our Verbena Spa with immediate effect. We will also be closing our Weathervane Restaurant for non-residential diners.

We will still be serving in-room dining for our residents, following the strictest hygiene and food standard protocols, in line with Government and PHE guidance.

Our outdoor pool will also be open for our residents and members who are welcome to use this outdoor facility providing they observe the recommendations around social distancing.

These are the most unusual of circumstances that we find ourselves in. We cannot thank our residents, and members enough for their understanding at this moment in time.

I would like to whole-heartedly thank the team at Feversham Arms Hotel & Verbena Spa for their extraordinary resilience and desire to continue to deliver the very best in customer service, at such a difficult time.

With my best wishes
