Heat Experience

If you have booked any of our spa day packages you can enjoy our heat experience, so don't forget to arrive in plenty of time to utilise the facilities to the full.

The Heat Experience combines use of the saunarium, aromatherapy room, salt vapour room, monsoon shower and foot spas inside, while outside, our hot tub and heated pool provide a uniquely revitalising experience.

Aromatherapy Room
We've added natural aromatherapy essences to help tired minds and bodies drift away from the turmoil of the day.

Perfect for relaxation, increasing circulation, cleansing and toning the skin - essential oils are infused into the room, allowing you to gently de-stress. Great for the respiratory system and to relieve congestion, the aromatherapy room also serves as a gentle exfoliant, leaving skin glowing and beautifully smooth.

Steam Room
The benefits and experience of our steam room are similar to a walk along the beach, imagine the sea spray and the crisp, fresh aroma from the waves.

You will feel the benefit of higher humidity, giving a ‘soft’ heat, which combined with the salt water mist, helps alleviate respiratory problems. The vapour leaves the skin feeling smoother, any dryness or sensitivity is noticeably reduced and the warm salt water mist also leaves you refreshed and re-energised.

Saunariums have long been known to aid relaxation, and at Verbena Spa, relaxation is what we do best.

Let the heat envelop you, helping to soothe your body and let your cares drift away, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the day of pampering that lies ahead.

Monsoon Feature Shower
The monsoon shower is the perfect way to refresh between heat treatments and to cleanse your body and brighten your soul. Choose from tropical warmth or arctic cool settings to suit your mood.

Foot Spa
What better way to relax in between treatments than to have your feet gently massaged in warm bubbling water? The foot spa is filled to your chosen temperature and you can then sit and unwind on a heated bench as your feet are gently pampered.

Outdoor Jacuzzi
Our hot tub holds up to six guests and is located in our spa garden, a few steps from the indoor heat experience facilities and from our outdoor heated pool with a view stretching over to Helmsley Castle.

Outdoor Heated Pool
Open all year round the pool is very much the centre of our secluded courtyard area. Up to two metres deep in places, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of swimming in a heated pool whilst breathing the fresh, cool air. Beautifully refreshing after a relaxing few hours in our spa.

Use of the heat facilities is £25.00 per person for up to 3 hours.

Relaxation Lounge

Our relaxation lounge is designed for just that…relaxing. Enjoy complimentary iced tea and water while you unwind or indulge in a nap. You’re here to escape, so curl up with a good book or magazine in one of our large comfy chairs. You can also enjoy a little sunshine on our south facing terrace.

Treatment Rooms

You’ll find that each treatment room is decorated in a relaxed, natural English style with lots of natural light. The very best flexible treatment beds with variable lighting and soft music are used to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during your treatment.
