On behalf of The Coniston Hotel Country Estate & Spa, Skipton, I’m delighted to share news of their spa redevelopment plans, to launch in mid-Spring 2021. The spa developments form part of the owner’s – the Bannister family’s – plans to continue to reinvest in the business and position The Coniston Estate as one of the leading destinations in the Yorkshire Dales.
The spa originally opened in 2015, and just over five years later the exciting new development will see the facility mirror its magnificent surroundings with a new name to match its new offering. Nàdarra Spa, which means ‘natural’ in Scottish Gaelic and is a homage to the Bannister Family’s history on the Isle of Lewis, will feature; two infinity pools with commanding views across the 1,400-acre estate, lake and Yorkshire Dales; a lake view terrace with relaxed seating, fire pits and a covered outdoor bar; a 15m indoor swimming pool, a thermal experience including an infrared sauna, Finnish sauna, Himalayan sauna, aromatherapy steam room, indoor bubble pool and ice fountain; a luxury couples suite including double spa bath and mud rasul. A spectacular private spa garden will also be created complete with a relaxation pod, loungers and two outdoor baths boasting the most incredible views.
Last year, the family refurbished the hotel’s main restaurant and created, The View Restaurant. A dining destination that celebrates the very best of the county, taking inspiration from Yorkshire’s vibrant food culture and featuring the incredible produce available on their doorstep, including game from the Bannister family estate. A new permanent outdoor heated terrace structure will be created later this year to allow for more dining opportunities – regardless of the elements.
Nàdarra Spa will join the property’s existing outdoor pursuits of clay pigeon shooting, 4×4 off-roading and archery, as well as long walking trails through the Dales, fly fishing and cycling.
