von Essen property Homewood Park has announced the opening of The Spa at Homewood Park. Set in the Limpley Stoke Valley, near Bath, the spa is the last phase of refurbishment for the property, following new public rooms and bedrooms in 2009. The Spa will open officially in July and is the first of five to be completed this year following an extensive multi-million pound investment across the whole von Essen collection. The custom-built spa is at the side of the original outdoor swimming pool and has two therapy rooms, a Champagne Nail Bar and a thermal suite which includes a sauna and steam room. There is also an indoor hydrotherapy pool that overlooks the newly remodeled gardens.
