The Coniston Hotel Country Estate & Spa has announced new development plans for their spa, to launch in mid-Spring 2021. The spa developments form part of the owner’s - the Bannister family’s - plans to continue to reinvest in the business and position The Coniston Estate as one of the leading destinations in the Yorkshire Dales.
The spa originally opened in 2015, and just over five years later the new development will see the facility mirror its surroundings with a new name to match its new offering. Nàdarra Spa, which means ‘natural’ in Scottish Gaelic and is a homage to the Bannister Family’s history on the Isle of Lewis, will feature; two infinity pools with commanding views across the 1,400-acre estate, lake and Yorkshire Dales; a lake view terrace with relaxed seating, fire pits and a covered outdoor bar; a 15m indoor swimming pool, a thermal experience including an infrared sauna, Finnish sauna, Himalayan sauna, aromatherapy steam room, indoor bubble pool and ice fountain; a luxury couples suite including double spa bath and mud rasul. A spectacular private spa garden will also be created complete with a relaxation pod, loungers and two outdoor baths boasting the most incredible views. The development is due for completion in March 2021 and will be available for treatments, spa days and spa stays.
The last lockdown saw the team enhance their existing outdoor activity offering of clay pigeon shooting, 4x4 off-roading and archery so that guests could really experience the enchanting estate, with the addition of new walking trails, electric bike hire, fly fishing and secluded picnic areas.
Two restored farmhouses on the estate provide an element of secluded luxury for up to 12 guests in each, complete with log burners, outdoor hot tubs and remarkable countryside views. Later this year, 10 of the 71 rooms available in the main hotel will also be renovated, more details to follow on this.
