Spa & Leisure

Surrounded by 300 acres of rolling green countryside it is no wonder this rural location in Colchester was the inspiration behind many a Gainsborough and Constable composition. However, the secluded, but easily accessible, location is also well suited for those looking for a little ‘me-time’. With a nod to Italy, the muraled walls of the Peake Spa, depicting Cypress trees and clear blue skies, set the tone for Mediterranean style leisure.

Facilities include an 18-metre swimming pool, Technogym, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna, and concept shower, as well as a poolside terrace for the warmer months. There are 12 therapy rooms offering a wide range of treatments including Decléor products and non-surgical facials, a solarium, Rasul mud therapy chamber and a Hammam complete with mosaic tiles, soft lighting, and a hot stone bed.

Hotel & Accommodation

The ultra-modern interiors of the four star hotel are cool, calm and sophisticated, overlooking the ultimate in relaxing views; rolling green countryside, lakes, streams, woodland, and the hotel’s own golf courses.

Opening onto the south terrace, the Lake’s Restaurant has two AA Rosettes, takes in the 18th green, and offers alfresco dining in the summer, or a cosy perch to enjoy sweeping panoramas in the winter. Either way, the decadent menu is always well received.
