7 BU­COLIC BATHING

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Hotlist | Wellbeing -

Breezy North York­shire is the un­ex­pected home of this beau­ti­ful new spa, housed on the rooftop gar­den at Re­gency-style house-turned-ho­tel Rud­ding Park. The rooftop gar­den, de­signed by Ra­dio 4 Gar­den­ers’ Ques­tion Time doyen Matthew Wil­son to echo the nearby Vic­to­rian spa town of Har­ro­gate, has taken nine years to com­plete. Wa­ter is drawn up from the grounds to ir­ri­gate the gar­den’s grasses, as well as fill the steam­ing open-air bath. In­side the spa, have a Moor­ish mud treat­ment or re­lax in the herbal steam room and ju­niper wood sauna be­fore din­ner at Horto, the el­e­gant and de­li­cious on-site restau­rant (rud­ding­park.co.uk).
