Titanic’s main emphasis is on personalised service

Titanic Spa in Linthwaite, Huddersfield is placed within a traditional textile mill in a secluded location in West Yorkshire on the edge of the Pennines. Apart from being the UK’s first eco-friendly spa, Titanic’s main emphasis is on personalised service - with treatments and products by Decléor, Elemis Carita and Neom Organic tailored to suit each guest.

Spa users can make use of the small gym, salt-regulated swimming pool and steam and sauna rooms. More daring guests can plunge into ice pools following their sauna session in the rather scary heat experience area. But if like me, lying on a beanbag listening to plinky plonky spa music is more up your street, the rest and relaxation room will not disappoint.

Accomodation and Food

Each deluxe apartment has it's own balcony and Instagram-worthy view of the countryside

Each of the 30 deluxe apartments sleep up to eight guests and have their own balcony, fully-fitted kitchen and an Instagram-worthy view of the countryside. 

The massive kitchens mean you can cater for yourself if you want to, or there is a bistro restaurant downstairs serving up healthy food twice a day; but for breakfast you’ll find cereal and milk in your room. Lunch is a small buffet with one vegetarian option and dinner is served at your allocated time where you can choose one of three options from the set menu. This felt a bit restricting and the food – although delicious - wasn’t cooked on site

The relaxing treatment rooms at Titanic Spa


Titanic offers a wide range of facials, toning body treatments, massages, hydrotherapy, beauty treatments and alternative therapies like reflexology and rieki as well as fish pedicures.
 There are also treatments specifically for male guests.

I went for a 50-minute Neom Titanic full-body massage which my therapist Holly tailored to my specific needs, asking me whether I wanted a soothing experience or serious knot-busting treatment. With my commuter’s back I opted for the latter, and while Holly could have been a bit more rough with me, the treatment was really relaxing and I was floating on the clouds afterwards.

Short breaks at Titanic Spa start from £109pp including use of all facilities, selected treatments, meals and overnight stay. Visittitanicspa.com for more details
