Spa info

Brimstone’s spa is the perfect place to retreat to after a day’s hiking, and guests are invited to enjoy a spa ‘journey’ to get the best out of their seven heat experiences. The spa’s only open to residents, to maintain the feeling of space and calm, and residents can use the spa for free.

Facilities include:

• indoor-outdoor pool – with poolside log fire, bubble jets and swan neck fountain • fitness studio • relaxation areas – inside and out • Finnish sauna • experience showers • ice fountain • himalaya salt steam room • lava sauna • mineral steam bath • herbal sauna • laconium

Spa Treatments have been designed specifically for Brimstone guests using their own product range, Pure Alchemy, created by a local apothecary. Additional treatments are by Elemis. All treatments need to be booked in advance.

Treatment highlights

Brimstone offers a great ‘recovery treatment’ for anyone looking for some gentle TLC, and the Elemis Hot Stones Massage is perfect to sooth aching muscles after a day hiking or biking.


All 16 rooms and suites are luxurious and spacious, oozing cosy Alpine-chic style with layers of cushions and throws draped over king-size beds and oversized sofas. Beds are among the comfiest in the business, bath tubs are freestanding, and terraces and balconies add to the decadence – and remind you why the place is priced for a special occasion.

wining & dining

There’s no formal on-site dining at Brimstone itself but you can opt for room service, or to make the short walk to The Stove Bar and Restaurant at the neighbouring Langdale Hotel.

Complementary drinks and snacks are available 24 hours from the fabulous Reading Room – brimstone’s luxurious interpretation of a hotel lounge – including scones, sandwiches and sweet treats. And there’s a local pub, Wainwrights, for anyone after more hearty fare.

why so spavellous?

The Brimstone spa journey is a delight to the senses and a fun way to enjoy time with a partner or spa buddy. There are thoughtful extra touches too, like the boot room with Arc’teryx kit hire – a nice touch for those of you who like to travel light (or have forgotten your walking boots).

But the icing on the cake is the service-with-a-genuine-smile delivered by the slick team of Tweed-clad ‘hosts’ ready to cater to your every need.

spavellous tips

We recommend the Spa Suite (of course) with its terrific super-sized tub. And to book the private Bubble spa ahead for extra exclusivity and luxury.

Brimstone is adult-only, but, if you’re travelling with the family, there’s the popular Langdale Hotel within the same estate.
