Swimming Pool, Gym and Salon
Beacon Hill Farm’s luxurious holiday cottages in Northumberland boast a wide range of leisure facilities - including a superb Spa with indoor heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, gymnasium and beauty salon - that many top-class hotels do not come close to matching.
- Outdoor Leisure Facilities
- Exploring Northumberland
- Beaches of Northumberland
- Castles and Gardens of Northumberland
Our Spa is open from 7.00 am to 9.00 pm 365 days per year. It is a large building in a wonderful location located just a short walk through the grounds from the holiday cottages, set against an amazing backdrop of rural Northumberland stretching towards the Northumberland coast.
There are a wide range of treatments available at the Spa. The Swimming Pool is heated to 30 degrees and there are tables and chairs in which one can enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee. There are six showers and two loos in the building and three different rooms in which one can relax.
In addition to the changing areas, we have two dedicated baby-changing rooms complete with everything a parent might need.
All amenities are complimentary during your stay at our Northumberland holiday cottages, allowing you to relax and truly enjoy your holiday in Northumberland.
Apart from the swimming pool, there is ...
... a Steam Room with a real difference: the walls and seats are fashioned from black granite which is heated to give a gentle penetrating heat, and the steam is gently scented with a choice of exotic aromas to complete the experience.
... a Sauna in Canadian redwood, set at around 90°C with a large glass door. Next to these two rooms is a cascade shower providing an invigorating cold douche to refresh you between sauna and steam sessions - ideal for cleansing skin and purging the toxins from your body.
... the Laconium Therapy Room has four heated beds on a heated floor in a south-facing room off the swimming pool; the views across the gardens from here are beautiful.
Whilst lying on the body-form beds, which were imported from Baden Baden, the heat permeates the body causing a release of toxins and inducing a feeling of deep relaxation. The room is bathed in aromatherapy oil and, with the soothing sound of the wall fountain and gentle classical music, it is not unusual for guests to spend an hour or more lying on the beds, often drifting off into a deep, relaxing sleep.
This is a form of mild sauna bathing that is very popular in Bavaria. You will not find another room like this in the whole of the United Kingdom!
... the Jacuzzi is situated in a tiled room off the pool and has wonderful views across the gardens and Northumberland hills. At night, the Jacuzzi is lit from within and you can enjoy the pulsating warm water on your own, with someone special, or with a group of friends in a unique atmosphere.
... the Gymnasium has a wide range of aerobic and power machinery. There are two running machines, two spinner bikes, two dual action air bikes, a Concept rower, and a further seven fixed-weight machines aimed at toning different muscle groups. The gym has a sprung floor where one can perform aerobic exercises, either to music or to a video. Chilled water, tea and coffee are available in the gym as well as gym towels.
... the Orangery, which opens from the south end of the pool, has 180 degree views through floor-to-ceiling windows over the gardens and countryside to the south and west of Beacon Hill. This room has a heated floor and steamer loungers. Guests love to rest in here, perhaps with a coffee and a magazine, or just to relax!
... the Garden Room is a dry relaxation room opening on to a paved sun terrace that takes full advantage of the surrounding Northumberland landscape. Complimentary tea, coffee and herbal drinks are available as well as a full range of magazines.
... the Beauty Salon is run by our resident beautician, Sheenette Milns. We have two fully-equipped salons, offering a wide range of health and beauty treatments, including reflexology. A wide range of beauty treatments is available. For advance booking, please contact Sheenette on 01670 780 915.
