One-year-old day spa crowned best in the UK

The Woodland Spa located in Burnley has fought off stiff competition from the best day spas in the UK to win the much coveted title of Day Spa Of The Year at the prestigious Professional Beauty Awards 2014.

Woodland SpaThis comes after the spa has only just celebrated its first birthday. Despite only opening its doors in February 2013 following £4.5m investment, The Woodland Spa has certainly created a name for itself and is attracting visitors from far afield.

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 and for which reservations are already being accepted."

Set within 100 acres of the most sensational woodland, it boasts one of Europe’s largest hydrotherapy pools and visitors can indulge in a thermal journey which soothes, relaxes and detoxifies and which includes access to the exhilarating heated, swim-indoor-to-outdoor infinity edge pool and a choice of two ten-seater hot tubs. Unrivalled and unique to The Woodland Spa is the divine serenity pool which is a low-lit, deeply relaxing room featuring a high temperature pool. Feature mood lighting enhances the client experience in this, the thermal equivalent of the library. In addition to these unique features, traditional thermal cabins are complemented by a saunarium which offers a less-intense alternative to the fierce heat of the sauna.
