The Woodland Spa nominated in the World Luxury Spa Awards!

19 February 2015

Burnley’s luxury spa poised for awards hat-trick, challenging perceptions of the former mill town! 

WHEN you think of luxury destinations, Burnley in Lancashire might not immediately spring to mind, but The Woodland Spa, based in 100-acres of woodland on the edge of the town, has been nominated in the Best New Spa category, in the World Luxury Spa Awards, which will see it pitted against luxury destinations from as far afield as Sri Lanka and the United States.

The latest accolade for the Burnley-based spa comes hot on the heels of last year’s UK Day Spa of the Year award at the prestigious Professional Beauty Awards 2014, held in London.

Having also been awarded Best Spa in the North of England at the Good Spa Guide Live Awards, this latest nomination presents an opportunity for The Woodland Spa to score an amazing hat-trick of awards in just under a year.

Andrew Brown, the Managing Director of Crow Wood Leisure, said: “The Woodland Spa represented a big investment and a big risk, but we felt that we had the location, the staff and the experience to make it happen. In under two years, we’re approaching our 100,000th customer and The Woodland Spa is being recognised nationally and internationally.”

“We are being realistic with this competition, we will be up against some of the biggest and most prestigious hotel groups in the world, but we are in the hat and that’s not just a testimony to our facilities but to our excellent team of staff. To be in the running is absolutely fantastic and we’re incredibly proud to be promoting Burnley and our region to the world!”

Since the £4.5 million investment in The Woodland Spa in 2013, Crow Wood has doubled its number of staff to 170, the business’ catering arm serves 7,500 covers per month and the business hit sales of over £5.4 million in 2014/15, with The Woodland Spa set to see its 100,000th visitor this year.
