Whatever your fancy. The Garden Spa is fabulous place to unwind. From your first step inside, you’ll start to unwind. Designed to bring the tranquillity of the garden inside, the spa is fully equipped with six treatment rooms, a steam room, sauna, relaxation room and heated outside hydrotherapy pool.
The Garden Spa’s treatments will soothe and refresh your body and soul. Leading essential oils specialist, Aromatherapy Associates, has also created a selection of rituals that capture the rejuvenative power of plants and flowers. One of The SPA Traveller's favourite UK spas..

The Garden Spa Signature Treatment
A top-to-toe treatment including a full body polish, aromatherapy
massage, and facial with scalp massage. The treatment works on stress
throughout the body.
For those times when you just can’t decide on a treatment, book some
‘time out’ with a therapist for a session specific to you.
Holistic Time Out
If you prefer a purely holistic approach, enjoy a needs-based treatment
combining at least two of the following: reflexology, massage, reiki or
Indian head massage.
Single holistic treatments are also available as 55-minute treatments.
The whole experience. Views of the country from the hot tub, to home grown herbs
adorning the wet rooms and the best chillout room in England.
If you’re looking for something a little
different, you’ll find no two rooms at Barnsley House are the same. Each room
has its own personality and character. Traditional stone fireplaces, wooden
floors and beams blend with contemporary furnishings from top London interior
designers, Fox Linton.
So, take in the room views of our gardens and meadows. Sprawl out in your
private terrace, sitting room or garden. Soak in the tub and wallow in a
Jacuzzi. With plasma screens in the bathroom, you can even catch your favourite
programme from a hot bubble bath.
From fluffy towel robes and twin tubs to entertainment systems and romantic
lighting, we’ve taken care of every detail. But we prefer to let the rooms do
Every room includes:
- Home cinema surround-sound hi-fi system, including CD player and radio
- Wide-screen plasma or LCD televisions in the bedrooms, bathrooms and
- Access to an extensive DVD library
- Bath and shower.
- Fridge mini-bar with complimentary mineral water, soft drinks and snacks

|World famous gardens
World-famous gardener, Rosemary Verey, began redesigning Barnsley House’s
gardens in the late 1950s, transforming it to a layout that attracts visitors
from around the globe.
In 1962, her husband, David Verey, brought the Temple from Fairford Park to
Barnsley House: a fitting choice for a famed architectural historian. Throughout
the 1970s and 1980s, a younger generation of country gardeners came to Barnsley
House to learn from Rosemary’s horticultural skills.
Rosemary was awarded an OBE in 1997 and the Royal Horticultural Society’s
Victoria Medal of Honour in 1999. Her gardens also captivated the Prince of
Wales, following his first visit to Barnsley House in 1986. The Prince returned
regularly to see Rosemary and her gardens, with a final poignant visit following
her funeral in June 2001.
