Swallowdale Spa, Smallburgh

This modern mansion house close to the Norfolk Broads and coast has been lovingly converted into a Bed & Breakfast with Spa facilities. Plus you can hire the whole house exclusively!

Swallowdale Spa is the perfect venue for a Muddy girly getaway as you relax and enjoy the indoor swimming pool, outdoor hot tub, tennis courts, private bar and treatment room. It sleeps up to 10 people and we recommend hiring the whole house and having exclusive use of the facilities. Plus the more people that stay the more cost effective the overall spa package rates are per person – which gets a big Muddy tick.

A little more ‘Cheshire Homes’ than ‘Downton Abbey’, Swallowdale stands apart from your usual country spa hotel as you can have the run of the whole house. In fact I’m not sure that there’s anywhere else in the county offering this opportunity.

Picture this ……  you and your friends lounging around in robes, sipping chilled drinks by the pool. Maybe a game of tennis or a massage in the afternoon? The best bit is that there’s no-one else around to pinch the sun loungers or hog the hot tub. The Afternoon Tea is more like a banquet – trust me you won’t be needing dinner! If you don’t fancy exploring the local nightlife, the private bar in the Red Room runs on an honesty system which makes this a pretty fab place to party in private.

Every bedroom is en-suite with bath (bagsy the Blue Room for the jacuzzi bath). High spec features including Bang & Olufsen sound systems, TV beds and air conditioning are throughout.

When not booked out exclusively for large parties, Swallowdale operates as a traditional Bed & Breakfast with the added perk of an optional day spa package with afternoon tea. Great for smaller groups or couples looking for a pamper stay close to the Norfolk Broads or coast.

Out of season (Sept – May) and any weekday you can visit for the day and book a spa package or treatment.

Finally – if you fancy a career as a therapist, Swallowdale is also a fully accredited beauty training school,  offering day courses and residential training.
