A restored National Trust-owned 17th century house with views across to Snowdonia and Conwy Castle, Bodysgallen Hall near Llandudno, an award-winning hotel, restaurant and spa, is the ideal base to learn a new skill this year whilst also discovering a unique part of the country.
New Spa Range at Bodysgallen Hall – Darphin
Voted one of the Ten Best UK Spas, Bodysgallen announced Darphin, the sophisticated, trusted Parisian skincare range, as its principal treatment and product range last year. The Bodysgallen Spa is housed within a converted stone farmhouse in the award-winning historic grounds, and features a 50-foot indoor swimming pool, steam room, sauna, relaxation room and gym.
The Darphin brand was launched by Pierre Darphin in 1958, who is considered to have revolutionised the beauty industry when he opened his first ‘Institut de Beaute’ in Paris using luxurious plant based formulas made with essential oils enhanced by skin-sculpting techniques.
The Deep Rebalancing Massage Includes a deep tissue massage that relieves tired muscles, using rhythmic techniques to relax the deepest tension in the gentlest way. Blended essential oils improve circulation to help oxygenate the skin and reveal a healthy glow.
And gentlemen are not forgotten. They can book in for a Made for Men Deep Rebalancing Massage or a high-powered revitalising facial treatment. Full list of Bodysgallen Spa treatments: www.bodysgallen.com/spa-tariff-and- treatment-guide

The hotel is also situated a mile from the Victorian seaside resort of Llandudno with its wide curving promenade (two miles of white sand overlooking blue sea). Wrap up warm for a brisk stroll along one of the world’s top 50 beaches. Or visitors can drive around the Great Orme with its magnificent views of the North Wales coastline. Nearby are the castles of Conwy, Caenarfon, Harlech and Beaumaris, as well as National Trust properties, Plas Newydd on Anglesey, Penrhyn Castle, and the gardens of Bodnant. Surrounding Bodysgallen Hall there are four main areas to visit in North Wales – the mountains and coasts of Snowdonia, the North Wales Borderlands in the north east, the beautiful Isle of Anglesey, and the bustling North Wales Coastal Resorts.
