Ramside Hall Hotel near Durham has unveiled the first artist's impressions of its £15m plans to create a state-of-the-art luxury spa and 47 new deluxe rooms.
Set to open in the spring, the Spa at Ramside will include a 25m-long pool, hydrotherapy pool, saunas and steam rooms. The plans include an infinity pool spa, a caldarium, or hot plunge pool, and a Rasul mud chamber, as well as 12 treatment rooms, a gym, dance studio and hair salon. There will also be an Asian-style restaurant and bar.
The spa is just part of the revamp at the four-star country house hotel, with the new bedrooms bringing the total up to 128.
Earlier in the year, the hotel unveiled an additional championship 18-hole golf course, representing a further £3m investment.
The resort is the largest privately owned leisure operation of its kind in the North East and is already renowned as a conference and events venue.
It also has two restaurants, including the award-winning Rib Room.
"We're creating an amazing state-of-the-art leisure facility," said general manager Tim Boyd. "At the same time, the addition of the extra rooms will give the hotel even more capacity to cope with leisure and business travellers."
