About Us

The Ridge Retreat Experience

The Ridge Retreat and Spa, nestled in the hills of North Cumbria, just a breath away from Hadrian’s Wall. Our spa came to life in 2023, born from the heartfelt vision of our dynamic mother-daughter duo, Lyndsey, and Abbie. Back in 2020, after visiting another spa and leaving with a sense of unease and vulnerability, we knew something had to change. 

You see, we realised that Cumbria lacked a space where everyone – regardless of insecurities – could truly feel comfortable and at peace in a spa environment. The bustling atmosphere of a traditional spa can make it challenging to find solace and tranquillity. 

And so, the dream of The Ridge Retreat was born. We offer a wide range of treatments, such as the acclaimed Dermalogica Advanced facials, acupuncture sessions, and luxurious beauty treatments like lash extensions. Each experience is carefully crafted to make our guests feel truly seen and cared for. 

At The Ridge Retreat, we prioritise your relaxation and holistic well-being. Our intention is to create an oasis where you can unwind, recharge, and truly escape the pressures of everyday life. With our private spa experiences, you can find solace in the knowledge that you have a peaceful haven all to yourself. 

Meet the team

We are a mother-daughter team with the same goal of helping people relax. Check out what we do below!


I'm Lyndsey, I simply adore providing comfort and well-being to others. My passion for therapeutic treatments blossomed from my years of experience as a personal training coach. Through helping individuals achieve their fitness goals, I've discovered that true wellness goes beyond physical movement and exertion. It's about tending to those areas of pain, offering our bodies the self-care they truly deserve. This realisation has driven me to offer an array of transformative treatments here at The Ridge Retreat. From soothing sports massages to the ancient wisdom of acupuncture and indulgent massages, I aim to create a sanctuary where your body is nurtured with utmost care.


I'm Abbie, I love having the opportunity to make our valued customers feel their absolute best. Whether it's painting your nails, accentuating your lashes, bringing out your inner radiance with a sun-kissed tan, or immersing you in the bliss of a soothing facial, my goal is to create an environment where you can truly unwind and nourish your overall well-being. I am very excited to be starting a Acupuncture Diploma in early 2024 and to be able to offer this alongside my mum.
