A Northamptonshire hotel and popular wedding venue is currently undergoing a £1.5 million refurbishment.

Spa facilities at Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa, close to Daventry, will remain closed until at least June as the extensive works take place.

Hand Picked Hotels, the company in charge of the venue, is hoping the refurbishment will ‘transform the space’, currently used as a spa for members and guests.

The company hopes to bring the 'outside in' with the extensive renovation.

The renovations include detailed landscaping and a new glazed wellness area designed to bring the ‘outside in’.

The company’s health club and spa manager, Lesley Bacon, said: “I am delighted to be able to share these exciting plans with our hotel and spa guests, and of course our loyal health club members.

“This sizable renovation programme has been carefully designed to provide them with truly first-class facilities both inside and out, and will underline Fawsley Hall’s position as a leading destination for spa breaks and wellness in the Midlands.”

Plans also include the expansion of the outdoor hydro pool with additional heat experiences, as well as a huge relaxation area overlooking the gardens.

Indoors, the poolside will be completely revamped, new sauna and steam rooms will be introduced, and the changing areas will be remodelled and upgraded.

The gym area will also be extended to allow for additional training zones for fitness fanatics.

A new coffee shop with seating area will serve spa lunches, afternoon teas, champagne and cocktails along with a selection of refreshments and snacks, with healthy grab and go options to take away.

The huge redevelopment requires a complete closure of the current facilities for around three months.

When restrictions allow, the spa’s treatments will be available in feature bedrooms that have been temporarily transformed into treatment spaces.

The brand new spa facilities are due to be unveiled and the venue will reopen fully in early summer 2021.
