The first thing that is striking about the titanic spa is its location, you might normally expect to find an award winning spa situated within, or adjacent to, a plush hotel, writes Peter Lewsey. However, the titanic is housed within a majestic Edwardian textile mill, located in a valley, on the edge of the Pennines.

The titanic is the UK’s first eco spa, which includes renewable energy sourcing, through solar roof panels, and energy efficient appliances installed throughout the building. The water supply for the spa is fed from its own natural source, 100 metres below the
building, where it was the original source for the mill‘s early purpose.

Accommodation is available (from £119 per night) and takes the form of 30 luxurious selfcontained apartments situated above the spa, each of which boasts its own balcony that offers panoramic views of the splendid surrounding Yorkshire countryside. Guests can choose either to cook for themselves in the fully fitted kitchen, or dine in the spa’s Bistro restaurant, which offers a superb range of eating options.

There are some fabulous pampering programmes (prices starting at £99) contained within
the extensive spa menu that contains over 80 luxurious treatments from which to choose, including luxury facials and relaxing back massages. In addition, guests can avail
themselves of the spa facilities, including an extensive temperature experience area,
which is based on both heating and cooling extremes, while bathing. The same area
incorporates an ice room, a steam room and a sauna, where the body is heated and then cooled, which creates a sense of remarkable well-being and relaxation. After enjoying this experience, the laid back lounge beckons, with its funky bean bags, private booths and chilled out music selection.
