Sopwell House ummm nice enough hotel, 'spa' is pushing it a bit. If you want to use the pool, steam room etc then you get more for your money but if you just want a relaxing day the 'relaxing area' is small and really just...More

Spent a fabulous weekend here. Staff went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. Amazing food. Vegan options very well catered for. Spa is nice but was busy. Mews houses with outdoor hottubs are divine.
