Spotlight on Stanley House Hotel & Spa

Head to the Lancashire countryside for rest and relaxation that combines the beauty of a Grade II listed manor house with a contemporary wellness experience.

Surrounded by natural beauty

Setting the scene for a tranquil retreat, Stanley House Hotel & Spa is in the heart of the Lancashire countryside, surrounded by 54 acres of the Ribble Valley in Mellor. This backdrop means waking to the sound of birdsong and enjoying verdant views from every corner of the hotel. It's also a beautiful place to explore - pop on your hiking boots and discover breathtaking walks as well as historic attractions. Favourites include:

  • Following the Tolkien Trail to explore Middle Earth
  • Climbing the steps of Clitheroe Castle
  • Learning about the Pendle Witches
  • Visiting the Ribchester’s Roman Museum
  • Cycling along the hills and bends of the Bowland Fell (in the tyre tracks of Sir Bradley Wiggins)
  • Exploring the Forest of Bowland

A luxurious and romantic hotel

An award-winning boutique hotel, Stanley House has just 30 rooms and suites, giving it a real sense of intimacy and inclusivity - perfect for a romantic getaway. Accommodation is sumptuous and elegant, rich in plush fabrics and unique features - one has a magnificent Inglenook fireplace, complete with a wood-burning stove.

Homegrown hospitality

Food is always a pivotal part of a spa break in our opinion, and Fred’s Brasserie doesn't disappoint. It has a reputation amongst those who live nearby as a destination in its own right. Contemporary interiors framed by the historic details of the Grade II listed property, this is where all meals are served, from afternoon teas to breakfast and dinner, all drawing inspiration from Lancashire’s very own Garden of Eden.

Holistic wellness

The spa at Stanley House is a purpose-built retreat, featuring contemporary architecture and state-of-the-art facilities, all oriented towards the gardens. It has a collection of thermal cabins and a deeply soothing hydrotherapy massage pool surrounded by glass to help you take in the view. In a separate building you will find the gym, also designed so that you can run, cycle or workout whilst looking across verdant vistas.

Natural healing and signature spa experiences

As well as the spa facilities, there are six treatment rooms in the spa, where therapists offer the spa's own signature treatments, spectacular two-hour spa rituals, and a host of treatments using the innovative Natura Bisse and the Mediterranean-inspired Temple Spa product lines. Together they deliver the best of holistic, results-driven and pampering experiences - the perfect combination.
