It's not often that I get to spend time alone with my mum in peace and quiet, so when I was approached by Ragdale Hall and asked if I would like to come along for the day, I jumped at the chance! This was actually my first time going to a spa, so I was equally nervous as I was excited.
I really shouldn't have been worried though, because I don't think I've ever met people so genuinely friendly and welcoming during my time there. We were greeted and given locker keys and robes, plus a map so we could get our bearings. I wasn't actually expecting the building to be so big, but it is to be expected as Ragdale Hall also offers accommodation - 93 bedrooms! There is just so much space, little nooks and crannies where you can sit down and chill out, that it never felt overwhelmingly busy. I was surprised at the range of ages, in particular younger people. If I'll be honest, I was expecting there only to be women, but it was a real mixture with men too.
