Farnham Spa Facilities
Adult Only Spa
Infinity Swimming & Hydrotherapy Pool
Enjoy beautiful scenery and fresh air with our wonderful indoor/outdoor infinity hydrotherapy pool; with the water lapping over the outside edge it really does seem to be an endless delight. Relax with the water massage jets featured in the indoor pool and increase this pleasure further when you swim outside and lounge on the raised platform with extensive leg and back massage jets.
And so to relax… there are two quiet and peaceful relaxation rooms to snuggle down for quiet contemplation and rest. The first is for post treatment relaxation and is adjacent to the treatment rooms on the first floor, the second is for rest after using the Water Mint Thermal Suite and is located beside the Infinity pool on the lower ground floor.
Please note that the Health Spa and its facilities are for adults over 16 years only. Swimming hats must be worn when using the pool and can be purchased in the Health Spa.
Water Mint Thermal Suite
The Water Mint Thermal Suite at Farnham Estate Health Spa is a journey of the senses, with hot and cold experiences to awaken the circulation, warm the muscles, stimulate energy flows and create a deep feeling of relaxation. The journey may take as long as three hours or you may use only the elements that you enjoy the most.

Now use the Kneipp hose to apply cold water to the body: Starting from the feet and moving towards the heart – e.g. start with the left foot, move up to the knees, to the upper legs and then use the same procedure with the right leg. Then the arms starting with the hands and moving up to the shoulders.
