Visit our luxury Lake District Spa

Welcome to Holte Spa.

The name 'Holte' pays homage to an ancestral name of our owner, James, with its ties deeply rooted in the history of luxury goods. A meaning that we hope to embody with a new informal luxury spa offering right in the heart of the Lakes.

You can expect specifically tailored thermal journeys; with an authentic outdoor Finnish sauna, minimal chlorine, naturally filtered pools and cosy relaxation spaces.

Bespoke treatments that go beyond the typical massage and facial offering, daily fresh food, clean drinking in the spa café and, of course, a little bit of Swan magic thrown in.

We are so proud to be partnering with Comfort Zone.

You can now book spa treatments, days and spa access now, as well as one of our brand new bedrooms and suites!

Our most recent winner:

We came through to stay at the swan for my wife's birthday and we were allowed to bring our not so small dog, on arriving we were welcomed by lovely staff who make you feel very welcome. The surrounding grounds are gorgeous for walking and berry picking and you could even have a picnic down the by the lake. We were lucky enough to have some sun shine and sat out on the front in the bar area next to the lake is just heaven.

The facilities are very good 5* from use of the pool, steam room and sauna plus a good choice of gym equipment it is possibly the nicest place we have stayed at in the lakes (we have stayed in some of the very best places in the surrounding area and believe me when I say this, the swan beats it!!). The bar and restaurant offer a very nice menu and a good selection of beers and wines from around the world, the food is absolutely gorgeous, I would love to try the muffin and locally sourced potted shrimp again, I do my wife's head in talking about it to this day.

We would 100% stay again and we are looking at booking in again at some point...

If you are looking to visit the area and looking for somewhere to stay this is the place to be.
