We visited a few years ago but had forgotten how good this place is. Friendly atmosphere, lovely surroundings. I had a seaweed bath, my wife had a massage, both loved it. We will not be waiting very long to return!

Been coming here a few times, whenever I'm over in Co Down from London. It's fantastic - really relaxing. They have a choice of steamshower or old-school style steam-box - think Laurel & Hard. I prefer the more modern steamshower, but most of my family...More

I couldn’t imagine how relaxing these baths would be. They exceeded all expectation. My body felt so good afterwards. I can not recommend these baths enough / a must do if staying in the area.

It ranges from £25 for a single person to £50 for a shared room. You can have a double bath for a couple for £40 I think. It is well worth it, I'd highly recommend it

Go to Google, type in Soak Seaweed Baths, Newcastle; find the website and all the details you need to know about seaweed baths (including pricings) are there. It'll take you about 20 seconds. Simples.
