However, a trip to The Coniston Hotel wouldn’t be complete without visiting the newly renovated, award-winning Nàdarra Spa. The building is set apart from the main hotel, and boasts simply magnificent surroundings (think two outdoor infinity pools overlooking the rolling hills and tranquil lake, private spa gardens and alfresco dining) as well as state-of-the-art facilities, including a full thermal suite (complete with a Finnish sauna, Himalayan sauna, infrared sauna & aromatherapy steam room), a 15 metre indoor pool, relaxation areas and treatment rooms, including one for couples. 

Treatments vary from full body experiences like the Mud Rasul Ritual or the Immunity Support Treatment, to every type of massage, to lymphatic drainage facials and oxygen boosting treatments from Natura Bissé, Aromatherapy Associates, Ishga and OTO CBD. There are also specialist treatments like the Oncology Experience from Ishga, which involves a bespoke combination of treatments for those currently undergoing treatment or living beyond diagnosis.  

As for the food, The Coniston’s variety of dining opportunities is bound to please even the most discerning palette. Choose from The View Restaurant, which makes the most of local produce and traditional flavours to create hearty dishes ranging from venison loin with kale to buttermilk panna cotta with rhubarb, Blossom Kitchen, which takes inspiration from Asian cuisine to create dishes like orange, ginger and beetroot tart and Char Siu Brawn, or order a luxury picnic to enjoy among the hotel grounds. 

Whether staying a week, or making the most of a long weekend, it’s impossible not to leave feeling completely refreshed and utterly pampered.
