Morritt Spa Indoor Hot Tub

As far back as 737 A.D, ancient cultures have been making use of Hydrotherapy, by means of hot springs. A large part of Roman culture was the use of communal bathhouses and thermal springs. Rudimentary Hot Tubs were created by adding heated stones to cauldrons of water. The Romans developed piping to carry hot water from the furnace to warm the baths, marking the early days of hydrotherapy.

Here at The Garage Spa, we have moved on from ancient traditions, offering Two Unique Experiences for your bathing journey.

The first stop is our Hydrotherapy Tub, perfect for unwinding and relaxation. From if you’re feeling brave, dive into our Plunge Tub. Ideal for cooling down after the sauna or steam room.


Morritt Spa Treatment Rooms

Our Spa Treatment Rooms have been designed to create the perfect environment for your complete spa indulgence.

Take advantage of a private Rainfall Style Shower after your scrub. Enjoy the natural light seeping in through our skylights or enjoy a darker room to drift off during your Heavenly Body Wrap. Soothe all your senses with our gentle music and aromatherapy oils.



Our Whisper Lounge is the place to take some quiet time away and melt into a book or close your eyes as you wait for your next treatment.

If you’re looking for a zone to rest and refuel then the Relaxation Lounge is where you want to be. With a comforting log fire and big armchairs to sink into this tranquil zone is the ideal place to melt away.

Light refreshments are available here, hot and cold drinks and afternoon tea.



The Morritt Garage Spa Whisper Lounge


Our Ambient Salt Relaxation Room is one of only a few halotherapy retreats in the north of England, featuring Salt Blocks Forged by Nature hundreds of years ago. Halotherapy involves inhaling air containing microscopic salt particles. The salt particles absorb irritants, including allergens and toxins from the respiratory system allowing you to breathe easier.

In 1843, Polish physician Dr Felix Boczkowski men working in the local Salt Mine suffered less from respiratory issues than the rest of the population. From there salt mines were used for Therapeutic Purposes primarily in eastern European countries such as Poland, Russia, and Ukraine.

Salt therapy is used around the world in hospitals and health spas to strengthen the immune system. It is clinically proven to provide Relief for Skin and Respiratory Conditions such as asthma, eczema, and psoriasis.

Lay back, relax and breathe in the benefits and enjoy the Warm Soft Glow that emanates from the salt blocks.

Steam Room

Steam Rooms are an incredibly old practice for relaxation and healing used by many cultures all across the world. Ancient Greeks and Romans used steam bathing as not only a form of relaxation but for social importance.

We run our steam room at a high comfortable temperature, allowing your body to naturally expel toxins. The steam loosens your muscles releasing any built-up stress and delivering Ultimate Relaxation.

The room maintains a high level of humidity that opens your pores and cleanses your skin of any debris. The high level of humidity strengthens the respiratory system and improves blood circulation, helping Lower Blood Pressure.
