Ye Olde Bell, a striking period hotel in Nottinghamshire, has announced the opening of a new multi-million pound luxury spa for spring 2017.
The new 17,000 square foot spa will offer ten hot and cold experiences including a custom-made ‘snowstorm’ experience, the only one of its kind in the UK Sabbia Med Sunlight therapy, steambath, salt cascade room, rasul, Swiss pine sauna, mineralising stonebath, herbal laconium, shower walk and indoor-to-outdoor hydropool.
Located in the rural village of Barnby Moor on the corners of the three counties of Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire, and Lincolnshire, but with easy access just off the A1 and a direct train service to London, the modern and elegant spa will feature six treatment rooms, two of which are double, a hair boutique and express salon.
The spa has partnered with LB Therapies, who have had a beauty salon in the hotel for the past four years, and will offer a complement of therapeutic and rejuvenating face and body care treatments, using products by top European skincare house, Germaine de Capuccini and boutique British cosmetic brand, Delilah.
Built over two floors, guests arrive at reception through imposing double oak doors where they are greeted by a sweeping central staircase and glass panelling. Inside the spa, in addition to the experiences, there will be an open fire, numerous relaxation areas, luxurious changing rooms and a stunning bar and restaurant with theatre style kitchen. Outside will feature a garden and relaxation areas.
The spa itself has been designed in conjunction with Spa Vision by Spa Director, Sadie Ardron-Levack, and Lizzie Bath of LB Therapies. The interior design has been led by Hilary Levack and designer Tonia Wynne of Homestead Interiors, both of whom did the full design refurbishment of the hotel.
“We are all thrilled about this new venture for Ye Olde Bell and when we open aspire to being recognised as one of the leading spas within the UK,” says Sadie.
“We have worked closely with our partners to create a luxurious space that takes our guests on a unique journey.
“We are passionate about understanding our guests and to ensure we provide a spa experience that is bespoke to them, whether this be relaxation, indulgence, wellbeing, invigoration or a combination of all four.
The spa will sit adjacent to Ye Olde Bell and will complement the style of the property. Dating back to the 17th Century the hotel has been passionately restored by its private owners. There are 59 individually styled plush rooms, stunning suites and luxury lodges all of which feature contemporary design whilst retaining their original character.
