With views of Lake Windermere and the Langdale Fells, Holbeck Ghyll is a charming country house retreat. The hotel offers a range of spa treatments including a Crystal Facial (45 minutes; £65) which utilises the power of crystals and gemstones and is a facial experience like no other.
The treatment begins with a gentle cleansing ritual using the most natural and high-quality products, and this is followed by a neck, shoulder and face massage using warm basalt stones. This helps to stimulate the circulatory system bringing enriched blood to the area which will, in turn, help to renew facial tissue, leaving one’s skin healthier, younger-looking and glowing. Cold crystal and gem stones are then applied to tone and strengthen the connective tissue and reduce the appearance of lines. This blissful natural facial can also help with puffiness and aid lymphatic and sinus drainage.
