Eastwell Manor in Kent has been acquired by spa hotel group Champneys, as part of the brand’s major development programme.
On November 1, the 62-bedroom hotel situated on a 3,000 acre site in the Kent countryside, will operate as Champneys at Eastwell and will complete a full renovation by summer 2017.
The acquisition comes as the brand ploughs on with its expansion plans, which have recently seen Champneys Tring and Champneys Forest Mere refurbished.
Eastwell Manor, which dates back to the Norman conquest, is owned by Turrloo Parrett and alongside its 62 bedrooms, it is home to two restaurants, a spa and leisure facilities.=
As the original health spa pioneers, Champneys is still true to its innovative heritage. Established in 1925, the Champneys Group currently operates four resort spas and six city spas in the UK.
Significant investments have been made at both Champneys Forest Mere and Champneys Tring in the past 12 months, and further transformations are planned for Champneys Henlow and Champneys Springs.
Stephen Purdew, Champneys owner said: “The acquisition of Eastwell Manor is a major milestone for the Champneys group. As the original pioneers of health spa resorts in the UK we are delighted to be welcoming such a landmark property to the group and for Eastwell Manor to develop its own wellness credentials. We are continuing to look at our future growth and with recent investments in our signature properties we are very excited about wellbeing in the UK.”
