The spa at Peterstone Court is growing in reputation and excellence. It's located in the vaulted caverns once used as the house cellars, as it is thought that being close to the earth in the Brecon Beacons would naturally generate energy, making this the a perfect location.
Peterstone Court offers an holistic approach to wellbeing using only natural, organic products, a philosophy which has filtered down from the main house. The spa offers you the chance to relax in the Jacuzzi, detox in the sauna, take a dip the seasonal outdoor heated pool or work-out in the gym.
