Wellness hub in the English countryside: The Langley opens with vast subterranean spa, Matt Roberts gym

The Langley, A Luxury Collection Hotel in Buckinghamshire, England has opened its doors, following an extensive six-year and multi-million pound renovation project.

Located in the heart of Buckinghamshire’s vast Langley Park, The Langley offers 41 bedrooms, spread between the grand and historic former hunting lodge of the third Duke of Marlborough, and adjacent Grade II-listed 18th century Brew House.

A 1,600sq m (17,222sq ft) wellness hub includes a vast subterranean spa.

The Langley Spa offers advanced and results-driven treatments in partnership with skincare brand Sisley, and combines striking design elements with world-class facilities, including a private VIP suite, vitality pools, hammams, juniper-wood sauna with pink Himalayan salt walls, amethyst steam room and 16-metre marble-lined indoor swimming pool.

There are also a number of relaxation spaces – including one designated ladies-only – plus dedicated manicure and pedicure studio, hair salon, and the Spa Lounge, serving nourishing dishes, spa snacks and vibrant cold-pressed juices.

The spa was equipped in partnership with Spa Vision and includes six Gharieni treatment tables and a specially-commissioned, bespoke double Wave Lounger from Living Earth Crafts.

“The Langley is a real haven for the discerning guest so the spa needed to reflect this through the choice of high-end furniture from our quality portfolio," said Susan Auld, director of Spa Vision.

The wellness experience continues in nature, with an outdoor swimming pool by the banks of Langley Lake.

Boasting world-class training systems and equipment, the gym has been developed in partnership with fitness guru Matt Roberts, offering bespoke one-on-one personal training using custom-made equipment and utilising the estate’s extensive grounds. Further specialist offerings include comprehensive health diagnostics offering 3D-printed figurines to illustrate bodily progression in unparalleled detail.

The hotel has been restored and designed in partnership with Dennis Irvine Studio. Built between 1756 and 1760, the main Langley Park House is a grand Palladian mansion situated within iconic Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown-designed gardens. The building has been refurbished to allow historic original features to shine, reflecting the spectacular natural setting with refined elegance, and referencing the grandeur of its distinctive British heritage.

The mansion house is home to The Langley’s most opulent accommodation, including the vast and exclusive Duke of Marlborough Suite. The three-bedroom suite is set around a unique octagonal central room, with unparalleled views of the lake and park beyond. The second floor of the main house offers quirky and cosy rooms with beautiful views through historic round windows, whilst the Brew House is home to chic and rustic rooms and suites, reflecting the building’s storied history.
