    60TH Birthday treat to ourselves
    The experience from start to finish was brilliant. My facial was very relaxing with Jo - she was excellent. I felt very comfortable with her. Definitely recommend the Spa - my other 2 friends had booked reflexology which again were more than pleased with. An excellent Saturday morning girlie experience!

    Amazing food for all of your needs.
    I ate here on 18th May and it was impeccable! I have recently discovered an intolerance but the Chef here was able to adapt the current menu to accommodate me. Service was friendly, attentive and personal. The food was second to none and the price was completely reasonable given the freshness and quality of food. I would highly recommend this place for treatments, food or both, and look forward to coming back when the pool is reopened, too!

    Can't beat the personal touch
    Myself and my husband came here very last minute (booked night before) for an afternoon tea followed by full body massages. Service from start to finish was amazing. Jo was amazing helping us book around our childcare requirements but also made some great recommendations whilst in regards to food and skincare! Jack was fantastic making sure we were catered to just right during our afternoon tea and we both felt like jelly after the amazing full body massages. We'll be back for sure and already recommended it to others

    Wonderful spa - hidden gem!
    My mum and I visited the spa after being gifted a voucher for my baby shower. Wow! What an experience from the food, the treatments to the general personal service everything was just spot on! We chose to visit for lunch and a treatment each and were advised by Jo to enjoy a relaxing lunch which I have to say was insane! The chef is incredible and everything was made to order so it was fresh - there really wasn’t anything to fault! Being 37 weeks pregnant, there was no sense of rushing to have our treatment at the time we originally booked and there was a great kindness to priorities digestion of the meal before my treatment. Onto the treatments, lovely therapists who took the time to talk to you without eating into your treatment time - this is not often the case at spas. The facial was beautifully relaxing and the products were lovely! My pregnancy massage was so relaxing with the addition of a pregnancy pillow for comfort I’m sure a snore was released but that just is a sign of relaxation! The rooms were tranquil providing the perfect ambiance for treatments. Both therapists were so wonderfully professional yet friendly making for a fantastic experience! Next time we will hopefully be able to use the pool facilities which looked beautiful after a renovation which is just in the process of being finished. A really special place and a memorable experience!

    The royal treatment
    I love this place, they treat you like royalty and cater to all your needs. I took my daughter for her first ever waxing treatment. They were so kind and caring and walked her through everything step by step. The massage treatments are amazing. Highly recommend!

My friends and I returned again (!)), this time for the 'Sheldon Spa Experience' and afternoon tea. We had the whole pool area and loungers to ourselves and we all enjoyed the food we ate (hot cup of Cacao - yes please! plus savoury and sweet cream teas) plus our 2 hour treatments of full body exfoliation, massage and facial. When my friends were treated before me, they came out of the rooms glowing. Once I had had my treatment, I knew why. We had a wonderful day of relaxing accompanied by excellent, personally tailored treatments. If only we could go every Saturday! Thanks to Jo, Natasha and Alice for, as ever, taking such good care of us all.

We had the best time for my sister’s 40th! Joanne and the team were absolutely incredible, they made us feel so welcome. The treatments were the best we’ve ever had, the afternoon tea was delicious and the team were so attentive and friendly. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you so much Sheldon for making my sister’s birthday such a special occasion. It was a day we will never forget.

This was our first time visiting Sheldon Spa and it certainly will not be the last, what a lovely place!

Where to start…….Jo was incredibly helpful from the very beginning providing all the info we needed.

Our visit today was a late birthday present for my mum and we were blown away with a little bottle of Prosecco on arrival for her as a birthday treat.

The staff were really friendly, professional and made us feel really welcome.
We booked one treatment each, a foot and leg massage for mum and I chose a back, shoulder and neck massage…..both massages were incredible, we both said the same thing that they were the best massages we have ever had.

We chose to eat here too and the food was so good! We had the smaller starter size plates of chicken satay skewers and the prawn and salmon fish cake. Both delicious including the fresh rolls that were made on site.

I wish I could give more stars, we loved everything about today. Thank you Jo and team

So today I took my sister to spend her 'BIG' birthday voucher, and the Sheldon team did not disappoint. With Jo and Alice pulling out all of stops for our morning with them. We enjoyed the relaxation, the silence, the chatter and the laughter. We savoured our massages, manicures and pedicures, and finished with a delicious lunch, thank you Chef! Just a shame we couldn't manage to encourage the sun to appear! Good luck in the Muddy Stilletto awards , whatever the outcome you're definitely our #1! Thank you. @sheldonspa

Where to start. Had the best facial ever today. Completely tailored to my skin's needs. Not only does my face look and feel amazing the chest and arm massage was fabulous. The wonderful hot stone to make my whole being feel centred, just made the experience calming, relaxing and special.
It's difficult to describe how wonderful it is here. Every detail has been thought of and a little piece of the therapist is given in every treatment. Whatever your need at the time, Jo, Alice, Jack and the team with endeavour to make you feel great at the end of your time here.
Oh, and the food is to die for.
Don't take my word for it, try it. You won't be disappointed.
