Here's Skiddle's pick of five country house hotels with great spas - offering the ideal way to revitalise tired bodies and minds after an over-indulgent Christmas and New  Year.

Calcot Manor, Tetbury
The beautiful 14th century Calcot Manor nestles peacefully in 220 acres of beautiful Cotswold meadowland, and offers a luxurious country retreat for anyone looking for a little bit of 'me' time in the new year. The hotel boasts 35 individually designed rooms and suites, and an award winning spa with indoor and outdoor pools and a full range of relaxing and revitalising treatments.

The Grove, Watford
Just half an hour outside of London you'll find The Grove, a 5 star hotel offering all the peace and quiet you'd expect from a country retreat, without the need to travel too far away from the city. Boutique suites and rooms are available in the original Mansion House, while a modern West Wing houses nearly 200 contemporary bedrooms. But really it's all about the hotel's stunning golf course and its luxurious, sprawling spa, which offers a full range of ESPA treatments available as well as two pools and an excellent gym.
