Luxury Lake District Spa Wins Prestigious National Award

The luxurious Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa added another notch to its belt on Monday 2nd August at the 2021 Good Spa Guide Awards, where the 4-star Lake District hotel was crowned ‘Best Countryside Getaway’ in the whole of the UK.

Finalists were announced earlier in the year and the stunning Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa was shortlisted for the best countryside getaway up against 9 other spa hotels across the UK. The contenders for this category were each selected on the grounds of providing peace and quiet, great views and plentiful relaxation spots to its spa guests.

Competition was fierce, but the Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa came out on top and the respected award was bestowed to The Falls Spa manager, Davina Hassell, at the distinguished awards evening.

“I cannot express how much it means to both me, my spa team and the rest of the employees at the Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa to receive this award.” said Davina Hassell, Spa Manager at The Falls Spa. “After an unprecedented year of hotel closures, it is excellent that our beautiful, countryside hotel has gotten the recognition it truly deserves and every single team member across the hotel should be proud of themselves.”

After over a year of virtual ceremonies, spirits were high as the 2021 Good Spa Guide Awards took place at the Spa Life Conference in Bedfordshire. The annual awards ceremony celebrates the finest spas and hotels across the UK, making it one of the nation’s most prestigious spa awards.

Dani Hope, Director for Lake District Hotels, said “immersing the spa with nature was always part of the plans when designing the spa, so we are really pleased to be recognised for this specific award. Davina and her team have worked incredibly hard since reopening after the third lockdown and we have seen an unprecedented demand for the spa since then so this win is a great moral boost for the team too. We will be celebrating with a glass of champagne when Davina returns with the award!”
