Burnley-based luxury leisure destination The Woodland Spa are celebrating after scooping a coveted national award as the Best Day Spa in the country. The Lancashire spa, part of the award winning Crow Wood Leisure, opened a year ago and fought off stiff competition from the top established day spas in the UK to win the highly coveted title of Day Spa of the Year at the prestigious Professional Beauty Awards 2014 held in London.
The Spa, which features one of Europe’s largest hydro therapy pools and a unique serenity pool, opened its doors in February 2013 following a £4.5 million investment, resulting in the creation of what is now acknowledged as Britain’s foremost day spa, attracting scores of visitors from across the region.
The Woodland Spa Manager, Karen Ashworth, is thrilled to receive award. ““We’re delighted that our hard work, attention to detail and our philosophy has been recognized by this amazing award. We believe we’re delivering the most luxurious and indulgent spa experience in the north of England. Yet our spa manages aim never to be pretentious. The welcome here is always warm and the luxury treatments simply divine.”
Adds Karen, “Everyone who visits The Woodland Spa leaves reluctantly, feeling like they are the only person in the world that matters. We believe that everyone deserves to receive the very best spa treatments available.”
The Woodland Spa’s world-class facilities are set within 100 acres of sensational woodland scenery, helping to create a true sense of intimacy and peace. Day spa guests can indulge in a thermal journey which soothes, relaxes, detoxifies and enjoy access to the exhilarating heated, swim-indoor-to-outdoor infinity edge pool before relaxing in a choice of two 10-seater hot tubs.
Unrivalled and unique to The Woodland Spa is the divine Serenity Pool, a low-lit, deeply relaxing room featuring a high temperature pool. Mood lighting enhances the guest experience. Traditional thermal cabins are complemented by a Saunarium which offers a less-intense alternative to the fierce heat of the Sauna. An award-winning chef delivers food that ensures your sensory journey is totally completed with a unique dining experience following your spa day.
It is these points of difference that have helped the spa win one of the industry’s most coveted awards. Andrew Brown, Managing Director, said: “We’re very proud of what we have created and we’re very proud that we’ve created it here in Burnley, Lancashire in the north of England. We’re staunch supporters of the town and are pleased that we are helping to place Burnley in a positive light. We’re also delighted to announce that work has begun on developing new luxury accommodation which will be open by June 2014 and for which reservations are already being accepted”.
Visitors to The Woodland Spa can tailor their experience according to whether they wish only to enjoy the Thermal Experience or include luxury treatments and delicious food to create a spa experience to remember.
