A Dorset spa has been named among the best independent businesses in England as part of the Muddy Stilettos National Awards 2022.

Monart Day Spa in Poundbury picked up the Best Day Spa award from the women's lifestyle website.

In total, 27 awards were given out with 765,000 readers having voted for their favourite businesses earlier in the year.

Hero Brown, founder and Editor-in-chief of Muddy Stilettos, said: “I set up the Muddy Stilettos Awards 9 years ago to give local, lifestyle businesses a chance to shout about how brilliant they are. The quality of the regional award winners has been so high over the years that it made sense to recognise and celebrate ‘the best of the best’ with a National Muddy Stilettos Awards 2022.

"Massive congratulations to all 27 National Muddy Stilettos Award Winners for 2022. You really are inspirational businesses, and your amazing creativity, passion and hard work has made you worthy winners of the inaugural National Muddy Stilettos Awards 2022.”
