In addition, there has been the introduction of yoga on the lawn and walking and jogging trails around the estate. Traditional games such as croquet are also available.

Debbie Taylor, managing director of Macdonald Hotels Manchester, announcing the redevelopment, said: “The new facilities make the most of our beautiful natural setting with some important luxury touches and wellbeing experiences.

For the spa development, the Vital Health & Wellbeing Club has been transformed. This includes private spa butlers, an aroma steam room, rock sauna, ice fountain, experience shower, two foot spas, RASUL mud therapy and holistic wellness therapies.
There are also dark and light relaxation areas, a Woodland garden, the café, a dedicated nail and aroma bar area, an 18-metre swimming pool with poolside sauna and steam room and a state of the art gymnasium. Jeanette Jones, Macdonald Hotels managing director for leisure and spa, said: “This is an exceptional new spa facility which sets new standards in spa and wellbeing.”
