The Greenwood Spa
The Dale Manor’s luxury retreat room in the attic is a wonderful area to relax and unwind – or just to escape the dishes in the kitchen or bed-time duties with the little ones… It features a Scandinavian wood sauna, a fabulous jacuzzi style hot tub seating 6 adults comfortably, a west facing sun-set roof terrace with outdoor seating and a large walk in shower and bathroom for your convenience. There is also plenty of comfortable seating to curl up with a good book or magazine.
Completed in August 2019, the extensive and beautifully landscaped garden is a fabulous feature on the Dale Manor.
There is a smaller, private, walled garden immediately beyond the kitchen patio, featuring a flower bed and BBQ hut and seating area. Through a little gate you reach the big enclosed garden, which has a children’s play area (one play set for little ones aged 1-4 and another for those aged 5-10), a large sun-set gin deck with picnic tables and sun loungers, two bon fire areas and a huge, level lawn, perfect for games, all the deck chairs or to just run around.
The Manor Garden is a trial project: can a wonderful outside space be shared between different groups, for everyone’s enjoyment? The Dale Cottage & Dale Townhouse have access to the Manor Garden Monday – Thursday and the Allendale Bunkhouse shares the space, if appropriate, over weekends. This provides a fabulous opportunity to socialise with other guests, creates a friendly, communal environment where people chat by the fire, share a sunset drink and children can play. Each Dale property also has its own garden, ensuring there is a private space too. You can also request exclsuive use of the big Dale Manor Garden for a special event or celebration. Just contact us to discuss.
To create an extra-special event, we can arrange:
The Games Cellar
The Old Hotel’s vaulted cellar has been transformed into the ultimate “game cave” with a high quality table football and dart board to really get the competitive spirit going. You can play your favourite tunes via Bluetooth through a speaker and keep your drinks cool in the fridge provided. The atmospheric lighting sets the scene for some fun evenings spent on here – and through the day, the old coal shoot has been turned into a sky light to let in natural daylight.
