Pampering places with hot tubs in Norfolk

Some of our places to stay in Norfolk add a touch of indulgence and some extra pampering for your visit. From small spas with heated swimming pools, steam, sauna, jacuzzi and treatment rooms, to wood-fired hot tubs with views, these are places to activate your zen. The treats don’t end there, expect delicious dining and generous welcome hampers, cloud-comfy beds and the delights of Norfolk to explore once you’re feeling fully recharged and revitalised.

Fritton Lake, Fritton

This very worthy rewilding project on the Somerleyton estate includes 25 sleek cabins beside a shimmering lake, a clubhouse with rooms, restaurants, gym, pool and activities galore around 1,000 acres of wild nature. You stay in the clubhouse or one of the cabins – either a standard or deluxe — all gorgeous inside and out and blending seamlessly with the nature around them. Enjoy king-size beds, private bathrooms, wood-burning stoves and wood-fired hot tubs.

Kitchens are compact and adjoin the living rooms but you can eat at the clubhouse – everything comes from the estate or as nearby as possible: shrimp, game, trout, cheese, vegetables, beef, mussels and mushrooms (of which there are many varieties and the estate employs their own forager.) Jump in the lake or the heated pool; play tennis, pétanque or have a guided run. Lovely walks abound.

“After several years inspecting Sawday’s properties, Fritton Lake has been a surprise and a unique experience.” – Inspector Peter

Congham Hall, King’s Lynn 

This is a beautiful Georgian merchant’s house with refined country house interiors set in 30 acres of parkland. It’s also a cool little spa hotel with an indoor pool and treatment rooms, so roast away in the sauna or steam room before a dip in the pool; there are sunloungers and a hot tub on the decked terrace, too. For the ultimate is luxurious pampering, book a half-day spa package. 

Post pampering, relax in front of an open fire in the sitting room, sip crafted drinks in the chic bar, eat excellent local food in the airy dining room. Bedrooms are gorgeous; some in the house, some in the courtyard. Children are welcome and have their own menu. The gardens are divine and there’s tennis and croquet, too.

“The Sandringham Estate is just 6 miles away, as is King’s Lynn, which is worth visiting for its Hanseatic epicentre.” – Owner Ruth

The Harper, Langham

Come for a wonderful treat – this contemporary hotel is entirely unfussy, children and dogs are welcomed as warmly as adults, and the food is excellent. Stretch out on fat leather sofas under a high vaulted ceiling in the lounge, hang out in ‘The Den’ — a sort of grown-up games room opening to a Mediterranean-style courtyard, or melt your worries away in the small on-site spa. Float in the inviting pool infused with natural light, steam and sauna, bubble in the jacuzzi. For some extra pampering, book a rejuvenating massage.

32 bedrooms (big, bigger, biggest) come with contemporary four-posters and top-notch bathrooms. Get breakfast – all home cooked to order – delivered to your room if you fancy a lazy start to the day. Supper is also a treat: modern British dishes using local food.

“Contemporary-smart hotel set in beautiful barns that once housed the Langham Glass factory. Rooms are very comfortable; there’s a pool, sauna and treatments too.” – Inspector David

Thatched Cottage, Wortham

Twin 17th-century village cottages have been sensitively renovated into one property with charmingly interconnected rooms, fresh flowers in the bedrooms, a thatched roof with eaves so low they come down to your shoulders, books, games, even an Xbox, and a delightful enclosed back garden.

Find a welcome hamper of treats and all the basics for cooking in the kitchen. Spend long sunny days in the garden, either around the large table in the loggia, on the hammock strung between pear trees, or in the hot tub. Wander to the village pub, The Kings Head, for local ales and pub food; visit nearby vineyards and breweries; explore magnificent Bury St Edmunds. 

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Thatched Cottage. The hot-tub was fantastic and just what the family needed following long days out exploring the local area.” – Guest Richard
