Aqua Sauna

While Cumbria is known for its breath taking scenery and idyllic walks sometimes you may want to do something a little less strenuous and it is on these days that Aqua Sauna at Center Park's (10 min drive from Bank House) 5* Luxury Spa could be just what you are looking for.

Aqua Sana at Center Parcs is a World Class Spa facility located just a few short miles away. Hidden in teh forest the Aqua Sana contains 15 multi-sensory spa experiences, an outdoor heated swimming pool and hydrotherapy massage pool. Alongside the Spa there are also treatment rooms offering the very best in beauty and massage therapies.

I have visited the Spa several times and it is a beautiful and relaxing experience in a stunning setting. If you book through us when you are staying, there is a complimentary glass of wine and they assure me that they will try and fit people in even at the last minute.

Ullswater Steamers

Ullswater is our closest lake and is only a 15 minute drive away. The most beautiful lake in England and where Wordsworths Daffodils are found.
