A CUMBRIAN spa has received a '5 bubble rating' from a leading industry guide.

The Lake District’s Armathwaite Hall Hotel & Spa has received the prestigious 5-bubble rating from the Good Spa Guide.

The Good Spa Guide is recognised as one of the UK spa industry leaders; 'setting the benchmark for quality, innovation, service, and excellence'.

They recently sent one of their ‘Spa Spies’ to visit the Armathwaite Hall Hotel & Spa, and they judged the spa facilities, range of treatments, fine dining, and overall customer experience as excellent.

Set within 400 acres of private woodland and surrounded by mountains and fells, Armathwaite Hall Hotel & Spa is seen as somewhere to 'switch off and escape the outside world'.

With several awards already under its belt, the estate has long been recognised as a leading hotel and spa destination, with people travelling from across the UK and beyond to spend a few days of peace here.

The estate said it has long understood the wellness benefits of nature and the role it plays in a spa experience, by building on its natural resources to develop an 'innovative and exciting' wellness retreat programme.

Talking about the news, spa manager Lorela Movileanu said: "We are extremely delighted to be awarded the 5-Bubble rating by the Good Spa Guide, which is a recognition of our continued commitment to delivering exceptional service.

"It is a proud moment for all of us, and I feel privileged to work with such an outstanding and motivated team. This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication put in by everyone at The Spa.

"We remain committed to providing our guests with an exceptional experience and look forward to doing so for many years to come!"
