The Potting Shed Spa

About the Potting Shed Spa

Frustrated that many spas are cold, clinical and lack a fun and friendly atmosphere, Sam Pearce, Owner, decided to start her own.

The Potting Shed Spa is a multi-award winning Salon, having won the best in the country after only 8 months of opening, and again 12 months later. We have also been voted number one of the UK's most inspiring salons. We have created a completely new approach to salon based treatments, with a tongue in cheek, themed treatment menu, we provide a five-star service in an unsurpassed environment, providing an extensive treatment menu that caters for both men and women.

We’re very homely and friendly. There are no clocks here and clients are not on a conveyor belt. Our approach to spa-going is very personal, hands-on and bespoke.

We have created an in-house academy, “The Greenhouse” that allows for maximum training to teach future beauty therapists the essential skills to be able to competently and confidently fulfil a role, allowing any future employer to have the confidence in their ability.
