This September, the very first Champneys Spa in the north of England will open at Mottram Hall in Cheshire.
Designed by Darling Associates Architects and spa designer Sparc Studios, the £15m transformation of Mottram Hall has involved the major expansion and redevelopment of the grade II* listed hotel, including a revamp of the reception, champagne bar and garden room. Darling Associates prepared the overall masterplan for the spa, gym, reception and 20m swimming pool, as well as the restaurant and studio facilities at first floor.
The original Mottram estate dates back to 1310, but the hall itself was built in 1721. It was converted to a hotel in 1940 and in 2018, Champneys took over the 18th century mansion. Today, the estate features a hotel, spa and golf course, completed with formal gardens surrounded by 270 acres of parkland.
A spa pioneer since 1925, Champneys has helped guests rest and re-energise for generations. Both spa day and overnight guests will be invited to use the state-of-the-art facilities including thermal experiences by DaleSauna and indulge in treatments at their leisure.
Alongside the 15 treatment rooms, the expanded development features a beauty lounge and the UK’s first Champneys barber shop.
