Ye Olde Bell to unveil spa designed by Hilary Levack, Tonia Wynne in late spring

The spa will be built over two floors, with the guests arriving at the reception through double oak doors.

Ye Olde Bell, a period hotel in Nottinghamshire, will open a new luxury spa in late spring. The 17,000-square-foot spa will have 10 hot and cold experiences including a custom-made “snowstorm,” Sabbia Med Sunlight therapy, steambath, salt cascade room, rasul, Swiss pine sauna, mineralizing stonebath, herbal laconium, shower walk and indoor-to-outdoor hydropool.

The spa itself was designed in conjunction with Spa Vision by spa director Sadie Ardron-Levack and Lizzie Bath of LB Therapies. The interior design was led by Hilary Levack and Tonia Wynne of Homestead Interiors, who also did the full design refurbishment of the hotel.

Located in the rural village of Barnby Moor on the corners of the three counties of Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire, and Lincolnshire, the spa will have six treatment rooms (two of which are for couples), a hair boutique and express salon. The spa is partnered with LB Therapies, which had a beauty salon in the hotel for the past four years.
