6 Reasons To Enjoy Local Spa Break in Devon

Published on 2022-10-26 / By Oliver Pyper

Spa breaks in Devon are like scented candles for the soul. Read on to discover why staying local is the best way to relax.

You can only nine-to-five for so long. Sooner or later, you'll need to throw off the shackles of the working week and give yourself a well-deserved break.

For many, this means jetting off to sunnier climes, stretching out by the pool and making friends with a bottomless piña colada.

But is that really the smartest way to relax? After all the packing, checking in, losing baggage, finding baggage, misplacing the hotel and – to top it all off – worrying whether you've left the gas on?

It's no joke – overseas travel can be stressful. Our recommendation: if you need a quick refresher, book yourself into our hotel for a luxury spa break in Devon.

You won't have to fuss about with phrasebooks, flights and baggage claims. And if you're local, even better – you could be unwinding in our hydro pool before the day is through.

Of course, convenience is only the beginning. Here are six more reasons why you should consider visiting our high-tech, low-stress Torquay spa.


Walking into Hydrotherapy Pool

You'll enjoy a spa break in Devon's best-equipped spa hotel

When you look at our spa facilities, we think you'll agree we’re one of the best-equipped spa break hotels in Devon.

We've built our spa from the ground up to focus on top-flight facilities. From our Scandi-style sauna to our indoor pool… everything is designed to give your body the best it can get.

You can enjoy lots of hard-to-find facilities too. Like our bucket showers, which soothe aches and boost circulation with refreshing sloshes of water. And our ice room – a first for Torquay – unlocks the mind-and-body benefits of cold therapy in a relaxing and tranquil environment.

Indulgence is always A-OK here

'Indulgence' can feel like a bit of a naughty word. After a hard day's work, indulgence usually means sloping off to bed and polishing off a tub of ice cream.

But here at Lincombe, indulgence isn't naughty – it's the norm. And better still, it's good for you.

Join us for a luxury spa break in Devon and you can choose from dozens of refreshing, revitalising treatments. We're here to help you look and feel your best, whether that means a relaxing full-body massage or a perfect pedicure.

Men, we're talking to you too. We've developed a range of treatments for style-savvy guys who want a little TLC. Fancy an exfoliating facial, followed by a hot-stone shoulder massage? Of course you do.


Lap Pool

We make exercise exciting

If your idea of time off is a high-intensity cardio session, we've got you covered.

Book a spa break in Devon with us, and you'll have free reign in our fully furnished gym. It's packed with equipment to help you shape up, trim down and de-stress.

But the gym's just the start. How about our 15-metre lap pool? Tackle a few lengths and you'll enjoy a full-body workout without the aches and strains.

To finish, we recommend a bucket shower – for the brave – or a muscle-soothing session in our aromatherapy steam room. With delicate aromas of orange blossom, eucalyptus and vanilla, it promises a sensory workout like no other. Sublime.

Hydro-Pool - Long Exposure

Two words: hydro pool

Sometimes you don't want a treatment. Or a gym session. Or – frankly – to do very much at all.

Perfect. That's just what our hydro pool is for.

Think of it as a giant jacuzzi, purpose-built to target achy muscles and weary minds. It features 10 stations, each with its own set of air jets – including volcano jets, which envelop your body with powerful, massaging bubbles.

Take a dip and let your thoughts wander. Before you know it, you'll feel relaxed, reinvigorated and full of endorphins. Say it together – 'ahh'.

Oh, and the water's lovely too. We keep it at a comfortable 34°C – just right for maximum muscle relaxation.



The seaside is on our doorstep

If you're local, you'll know the score. While Devon boasts miles of marvellous coastline, it's hard to find the time to make the most of it.

Well, here's your chance. With this spa break in Devon you can treat yourself to the famous English Riviera and you'll be a short hop from two of the county's best-loved beaches.

The first, Torre Abbey Sands, is Torquay's main beach. You can drive there in five minutes, or you could take a leisurely stroll past Torquay Harbour, taking time to watch the bobbing boats and swooping seagulls.

The second, Oddicombe Beach, is a little further afield – around 10 minutes by car. It's well worth the extra effort, though – not least because of its historic cliff railway and impressive sandstone cliffs.

Best of all, the beach is good for you – science says so. Studies show that spending time by the sea can improve mental well-being. (Like we need an excuse…)

We've got tailored breaks and spa days galore

Are you looking for some quality alone time? Or perhaps you're planning a relaxing getaway for two?

Either way, prepare to be spoiled for choice. Browse our spa breaks in Devon and you'll soon find a package with your name on it.

Fancy an evening of indulgence? Go for a one-night stay and enjoy full access to our top-of-the-range facilities, as well as a three-course dinner and a free 60-minute spa treatment.

Want to banish stress for weeks? Choose our deluxe three-night break. It includes all of the above, plus extra treatments and a cheeky afternoon tea in our award-winning restaurant.

If you're pressed for time, you could even book yourself in for a day visit.
