Oxley's at Ambleside is a haven of peace & tranquillity. Escape from it all and experience the relaxing and rejuvenating effects of time spent at an Oxley's Spa. Situated in the centre of Ambleside, surrounded by the lakes and fells of the English Lake District, our Spa reflects the natural beauty and serenity of the area. If you're short on time treatments start from half an hour but we'd love you to stay longer and put your feet up with a magazine and a drink in our relaxation lounge or, for the ultimate in relaxation, treat yourself to one of our Spa Days. Treatments include indulgent massages, detoxifying body wraps, beautifying facials, manicures & pedicures, Kissed by Mii spray tans and a range of holistic therapies. Spa Days include treatments from half an hour to three hours, full use of the leisure facilities and a delicious lunch. We now also offer a half-day Mini Spa Experience. We use only the finest pure, natural and where possible, organic spa products including Decleor, Neom, Jessica and Live Native. For over 40 years Decleor have studied the multitude of positive effects in essential oils and their benefits for the skin and senses. They are one of the most internationally trusted and respected professional spa brands.

Enjoyed the hot stone massage, bit disappointed with the mini manicure. The beautician was extremely lovely but not a nail technician, have had better manicures
