Contractor Beard will construct a three- and four-storey spa development, designed by Felce & Guy Architects to follow the natural contours of the hotel grounds, minimising its visual impact on the landscape.

Beard is scheduled to complete works in autumn 2018.

The spa will have indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a 200m² gym as well a range of spa treatment rooms.

“A unique aspect of the project’s construction will be its sloped and curved living grass and wildlife roof which will help insulate the building, absorb rainwater and provide a wildlife habitat,” said Gareth Phillips, contracts manager for Beard. “The spa will also be powered by renewable green energy from biomass boilers.”

Danny Pecorelli, managing director of Exclusive Hotels & Venues, which owns the hotel, said: “We’re very pleased to be working with Beard on this exciting project at South Lodge. The plans are stunning and the addition of this state-of-the-art spa will make South Lodge one of the top leisure destinations in the UK.”
