"I found my love and passion for massage and spa treatments quite early on at college as it felt massage came very natural to me and I have built my skills and experience up over the years.

"I have worked in the wellness industry for 10 years now but have always felt naturally drawn more towards the spa side of the industry.

"I've always been into fantasy books and movies so I wanted to create a spa with a magical theme to add some of my personality and passion into it.

"I teamed up with an amazing designer – Yasmin Cousins, who I found on Instagram - and she made all the amazing branding and we brought my little dream to life.

"I went with the idea of fairy magic created the business from there.

"Also, I am surrounded by the beautiful Yorkshire countryside so the name Heaven On T'hill felt very fitting.”

"I wanted to give clients something a little extra special with the magical spa packages so I created a theme for each one, with music, scents and ambience tailored to each package and each one comes with time to relax with a tea at the end,” explained Clare.

"For example, with the Far Away Galaxy packages, I turn the room into a spacey theme with the stars on the ceiling to create that extra ambience suited to the package.

"I enjoy giving clients a place to relax away from the usual stresses of life and to escape away in the little spa I have created.

"I've had a really lovely response so far and have felt very grateful to have welcomed many lovely new clients and was quite surprised a how quickly people had responded.”
