As part of a £90 million refurbishment across the entire estate, Ursell Pools & Wellness oversaw the installation of two state of the art tiled swimming pools with a luxury thermal suite at The Coach House Spa, part of the prestigious and historic Beaverbrook Estate Hotel and Golf Club site. Dating back to the 19th century, the late Victorian mansion, in prime Surrey parkland, was taken over by the Beaverbrook family in 1879, Lord Beaverbrook, the newspaper magnate, famously welcomed guests to the Estate including Winston Churchill, Charlie Chaplin and HG Wells. Ursell oversaw the installation of two, 20 x 8 m pools; one indoor and one outdoor. The outdoor pool – with an adjoining 8 x 3m children’s pool – has a unique checkerboard pattern design and is equipped with a fully concealed thermal automatic pool cover.
The indoor pool, again finished with stunning bespoke tile features, commissioned by artist Brian Clarke, is equipped with a fully concealed thermal automatic slatted pool cover housed in a cave at the back of the pool wall. Winner of the 2019 UK Pool & Spa Awards, Commercial Project Of The Year, the two pools are further complimented by a highly sophisticated and uniquely designed thermal spa, manufactured and installed by Ursell Pools & Wellness. “The swimming pools and luxury thermal spa at the Beaverbrook Hotel perfectly demonstrate our ability to deliver both stunning swimming pool and wellness facilities side by side” Martin Ursell, Managing Director, Ursell Pools and Wellness. The ethos of the spa is to offer a relaxing and tranquil atmosphere with an oval shaped hammam with heated massage table and a mosaic tiled sink and shower where two feature light wells in the ceiling with hand-made coloured glass bring natural light into the cabin.
The spa also includes a bespoke sauna cabin, finished in alder panelling with hidden heater and fire suppressant system, a mosaic tiled steam room, feature ice pedestal with led lighting and bespoke tiled ice collector, experience showers, drinking fountain and a 3m diameter tiled deck level spa with teak surround. UP&W also created several feature light wells throughout the spa area adorned with hand-made coloured glass from Brian Clarke Studios. To enhance the sense of tranquillity we also installed a tiled rill water feature which runs through the entire spa area. The feature was another artistic collaboration with Brian Clarke Studios who designed the handmade tiled features of the water rill running round the perimeter of the spa area.
