The Courtyard Spa is at The Bridge Hotel on the outskirts of Wetherby, Leeds, West Yorkshire. It has recently had a £250,000 investment and is now re-opened to hotel guests and the general public.
Very impressed with this spa, lots fit into a nice compact area. Lovely relaxation space and a very pretty courtyard to enjoy a cup of herbal tea, a glass of fizz or afternoon tea with friends.
We were there on a lovely warm sunny day in June and made good use of the outside hot tub.
The only downside was that the water was very hot, perhaps it could be turned down on warm days as it would obviously heat naturally on top of the set temperature due to the sunshine.
The plunge pool was lovely and also naturally warmed making it a very pleasant experience on a warm day.

Information about the spa area from their website:
HEAT AND ICE
The heat experience combines use of both of our sauna, steam room, experience drench shower, foot spa and ice fountain inside, while outside our hot tub, cold plunge tub and barrel sauna provide a uniquely revitalising experience.
Let the relaxing applewood vapour and warmth sooth your body and let your cares drift away, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the day of pampering that lies ahead!
Experience Drench Shower
The perfect way to refresh between heat treatments, immerse yourself with the arctic cold setting to cleanse your body and brighten your soul.
Japanese Foot Spas
What better way to relax in between treatments that to have your feet gently massaged in warm bubbling water? The foot spa is filled to your chosen temperature and then all you need to do is sit back, relax and unwind on the heated bench as your feet are gently pampered.
Outside hot tub
Our outside hot tub holds up to 10 guests and is located in our hidden courtyard, overlooking delightful views of the countryside. The best way to enjoy this experience is with a glass of bubbly in one hand!
Outside plunge tub
Situated next to outdoor spas or hot tubs for the purpose of cold-plunge therapy. Small cold-water pools have been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine and were also popular with the Ancient Romans. Many swimmers and athletes like to plunge into a pool of cold water after a heated workout or sauna or spa session, believing it has therapeutic benefits. Why not give it ago?
Nordic Barrel Sauna
After taking a dip in our cold plunge tub why not warm up again in the innovative, barrel-shaped Nordic sauna in our thermal courtyard.
Eucalyptus crystal steam room
The ultimate luxury of the steam rooms creates a relaxing environment and an overall sense of well being throughout the body. Using a combination of steam and Eucalyptus, this moist environment will cleanse the body, removing impurities and revitalizing the mind. This also aids in sleep and deep relaxation of the body and mind.
The ice fountain is a great way to cool your body down after using our heat rooms. Simply take handfuls of ice-flakes from the bowl and rub into the skin helping the pores to close.
