Armathwaite Hall Hotel & Spa set in 400 acres of deer park and woodland, near Keswick in the northern Lake District has announced an investment of £1 million into its award-winning facilities with the development of eight new Spa Garden Suites.
The development plan has been put in place following a noticeable increase in the luxury market and demand for spacious and luxurious rooms which embody the natural landscape, for couples to retreat and relax. The elegant development will be completed in April 2023 and is an extension of the recent development of public spaces in the hotel including the Lake View Restaurant, Lounge and Reception.
The existing spa wing bedrooms, which lead from the main house towards the spa have easy access to the facilities and will be extended and doubled in size to a floor footage of 40-50sqm. The Spa Garden Suites have been designed to connect its guests with the lush greenery of the landscape that sits directly outside each room and accessible via a private patio. A unique sense of cosiness is at the heart of the design and will be achieved through the use of natural materials and textures, stunning contemporary fireplaces and carefully designed lighting to create a warm and luxurious ambience, any time of the day.
Each suite layout has been expertly designed in partnership with Architect Unwin Jones to include a spacious lobby, a top of the range 4-piece bathroom, a luxury bedroom, a lounge with large glazed windows which will have stunning garden views, a snug corner sofa and a feature fireplace.
The design of the Spa Garden Suites take inspiration from the hotel’s natural environment with materials carefully chosen to tie in with the historic architecture of Armathwaite Hall, while adding a modern touch with timber finns and large expanses of glazing. Internally, the design scheme uses natural raw materials such as oak and stone to further root the rooms naturally within their surroundings. The suites have been designed to exude a sense of serenity and well-being, with calming tones such as muted greens, stormy grey blues and earthy terracottas, all inspired from the natural surrounding landscape.
“The decision to expand our bedroom offering is born off the back of an increase in the high-end leisure market and the demand for bigger and better bedrooms for our luxury spa guests. We are continually striving to enhance our guests experience at Armathwaite Hall Hotel and providing them with an improved space to relax and retreat will meet and exceed their expectations”.
