When the weather begins to get frightful, there’s nothing more delightful than cosying up in a hot steam room or cocooning by a fire at one of Surrey’s spectacular spas. Here, the Good Spa Guide picks its top winter warmers

1. Foxhills Club and Resort

This country hotel and resort, set in 400 acres, is great for active families with tennis, golf, swimming and biking. Send the little ones to nursery or kids’ club and escape to the spa for a few hours of bliss.

What’s hot? Even if it’s chilly out, you can still enjoy the beautiful spa gardens from the window of the toasty hot outdoor sauna, or spa al fresco in the bubbly raised hot tub. The natural swimming pool may be out of bounds in winter, unless you feel like breaking through the ice, but there’s nothing like a warm shower beneath a winter tree to get your circulation going.

2. The Runnymede-on-Thames

Waterbabies will love this spa with its 18-metre indoor pool on the banks of the river Thames. There are thermal treats aplenty, including a huge eucalyptus-infused steam room to clear your cold-y head.

What’s hot? The ESPA Aromatherapy full body with hot stones (75 minutes, £75). There is nothing more soothing on a winter’s day than being massaged using one of ESPA’s warmed aromatherapy oils – choose your favourite by scent. The hot stones are a beautiful bonus.

3. B Spa at Brooklands Hotel

This contemporary hotel is built on the Brookland’s banked racing circuit. Interiors are Art Deco and Mercedes Benz-inspired. A Car and Spa package (£176 pp) includes a driving experience at Mercedes Benz World, a 50-minute Divine Body Massage, bed and breakfast and a three-course meal in 1907 restaurant.

What’s Hot? Racing fans will love the outdoor 12-seater hot tub with its panoramic track views. Follow with a Caudalie Crushed Cabernet Body Treatment (from £70).

4. The Spa at Wentworth

Wentworth is a private members’ club with a castellated clubhouse, three championship courses, and a tennis and health club. Swim and bubble in the health club pools and then escape the hubbub and cosy up in the exclusive, petit spa.

What’s hot? Prepare your skin for winter with a Natura Bissé Citrus Wrap. An intense exfoliation gets your circulation going and your skin ready to absorb the Vitamin C concentrate. Wraps are wonderfully cocooning in the cold months, and the incredible scent of fresh oranges will soon transport you to sunnier climes.

5. Spa Experience at Rainbow Leisure Centre Epsom

This bright spa offers so many heat experiences to relieve winter aches and relax muscles - just what’s needed on chillier days. There’s a sauna, hydrotherapy pool, ice fountain, hot rooms and a relaxation area.

What’s hot? The Couple’s Moroccan Rasul Ritual (£60). Paint your loved one in healing muds in a private steam antechamber before a warm tropical rain shower washes away the La Sultane de Saba muds, leaving your skin gleaming with good health and nutrients.

6. Pennyhill Park Hotel and The Spa

Say goodbye to winter blues with 45,000 square feet of spa complex, including a marble thermal suite and massive 25-metre indoor swimming pool with underwater music.

What’s hot? Brave the elements in the beautiful spa garden and submerge yourself in the warm, bubbly Canadian hot tubs. The central tub is raised with bubbly seats for a party of six. Either side are two deeper baths with bubble-jet beds and high black marble walls to give you a bit of intimacy. For more on Pennyhill Park turn to page 130 for our latest On Your Doorstep feature.

7. Nutfield Priory Hotel and Spa

This Neo-gothic country house hotel has romance in spades. Book yourself into the Byron suite in the tower (other rooms are called Huxley, Keats, Bronte, Wordsworth and so on… you get the picture). Then relax with a loved one in the modern health club and spa.

What’s hot? Ease tension with a lovely Thai-inspired Elemis Poultice-Powered muscle release treatment (55 minutes, £79) using an Amber and Quartz poultice infused with head-clearing Eucalyptus and Juniper. Indulge yourself with a traditional afternoon tea in the Club Bar post-treatment.

8. Grayshott Health Spa

Set in 47 acres overlooking National Trust countryside, Grayshott is the place to head if you want to give your health a boost in the winter months. Its famous seven-day health regime is all about nutrition, with a delicious gourmet twist. Executive chef Adam Palmer’s moto is “inspiration not deprivation” and his food is renowned.

What’s hot? Cosying up by the fire in one of the traditional lounges or reading rooms. Grayshott is the perfect place if you have been feeling run down or recovering from illness. You will feel utterly cocooned, de-stressed and supported.

9. Guildford Harbour Hotel

This stylish town-centre hotel has a newly refurbished spa – HarSpa – with five treatment rooms, an urban fitness suite, indoor pool, hydrotherapy pool, sauna and steam room plus “Guildford’s first” al fresco heated pool.

What’s hot? There is no such thing as bad weather when one has a luxury outdoor Champagne pool open all year round. Bubble away on warm stress-relieving water jets while the poolside bar serves up a selection of bubbles by the glass or bottle, from Prosecco Galanti to Dom Perignon. Cause for celebration in Guildford. Cheers!

10. Lythe Hill Hotel

Lythe Hill is a cosy, listed Tudor farmhouse with heaps of historical charm, plus added modern comforts. The Amara Spa is in a barn-like building with enormous windows letting in lots of natural light. Enjoy views over the lake and gardens from the 16-metre pool and Jacuzzi.

What’s hot? Book a Tranquil Spa Break (from £129 per person) which includes a warming 55-minute Decleor treatment (we recommend the Divine Aroma body envelopment), dinner at the Wildebeast restaurant with panoramic countryside views, breakfast and an overnight stay in one of the historic bedrooms.
