Armathwaite Hall Country House and Spa
Bassenthwaite, Keswick, Cumbria, 23miles SW of Carlisle, 25miles west of Penrith.
Spa & Leisure
The design of the spa at Armathwaite Hall is in stark, contemporary contrast to the original building, but sympathetically so; and key amongst its features is the view of the lake and Skiddaw mountain. Facilities include a gym, infinity pool, tropical shower, wallow pool, rain dance shower, outdoor hot-tub, hydrotherapy pool, steam room, sauna, tranquillity room, spa lounge and an aroma steam room with cooling Kneipp hoses, as well as a waterfall for good measure.
Naturally, all those facilities are accompanied by 10 treatment rooms using Armathwaite Hall’s own product range and product house partner Temple Spa, as well as a potent combination of element-inspired Terrake products and Italian brand [Comfort Zone] in a collection that ranges from facials, massages, scrubs and wraps, to manicures, pedicures, finishing touches, bridal hair and make-up and signature rituals.
Hotel & Accommodation
Armathwaite Hall Hotel and Spa sits within a 400 acre estate of stunning lake district countryside and lake views perfect for exploring or enjoying activities such as clay pigeon shooting and fishing. Also on the estate is the Lake District Wildlife Park, home to hundreds of species of rare and endangered birds, animals and reptiles.
The Lake View Restaurant’s moniker sort of gives the game away as to its dominant aesthetic characteristic, but in addition to the view, the grand dining room also offers a wealth of Cumbrian sourced ingredients prepared, in an Anglo/French fusion menu. Breakfast, lunch and afternoon teas are also served in the main dining area.
The contemporary Courtyard Bar and Brasserie offers a stylish and relaxed dining experience from brunch, through to lunch and dinner.
