Woolfox has been re-born as a very exclusive lifestyle experience and it’s awesomely impressive from the moment you arrive. Nicholas Rudd-Jones went to take a look around
As we arrive, we are greeted by splendid views across the rolling countryside, mature trees planted across the estate and, inside, huge picture windows that let so much light in. This is truly a place to relax and unwind. The finish throughout is of the highest calibre. Everything has been carefully chosen to give a feeling of supreme classiness, in a stylish, contemporary way. This experience is ‘best in class’, not just at a regional level but at a national level too.
We enter at reception and are welcomed by the front-desk staff. Everything runs on an app from this point to make things ultra-smooth. To our right is the stylish Fika Café, where you can get drinks and light bites. To the left are the changing rooms, done to a luxury hotel standard with gorgeous tiling, floor lighting, anti-fog mirrors, leather-style benches and designer lighting throughout. This will make changing a pleasure rather than a chore. From here, you can choose between the swimming pool, the gym or the yoga studio.
The swimming pool quite simply took our breath away – huge, lined with ultra-contemporary stainless steel, with a volcano grey base lining and underwater lights, and a huge window at the end opening out southwards onto glorious countryside views. There are loungers down one side and a sauna on the other side, with plenty of space. The cedarwood aroma in the sauna is heavenly. And on the other side, again with great views, is the relaxation room with four heated sun loungers on which to relax.
Next, the gym: spacious and contemporary with large, circular mirrors and, in the roofscape, the provenance of the building – an old farm – is apparent in the rafters and more traditional features. And, of course, there’s every piece of gym equipment you could possibly wish for.
Finally, there’s the Yoga and Wellness Studio, designed in a more intimate style with gorgeous wicker lights. A variety of wonderful instructors has been lined up from January onwards.
