The doors to Weavers’ House Spa have finally opened, bringing a taste of Mediterranean luxury to Lavenham’s high street.

The opening of Weavers’ House at the timber framed 15th-century Swan Hotel is part of TA Hotel Collection’s investment programme.

The spa offers six treatment rooms, relaxation areas and an outdoor vitality pool.

Architect and designer Roger Balmer said: “Our rationale behind the build was to create a cool, calm environment that worked well with the beautiful older buildings.”

The two-storey spa recalls Lavenham’s wool trade history with each treatment room named after a type of wool.

Swan general manager Ingo Wiangke said the project had taken a huge amount of organisation to minimise the effect on guests at the hotel.

“It is so important to get it absolutely right,” he said. “The Swan has a reputation and we had to follow that reputation.”

Mr Wiangke said the reaction from Lavenham people has been extremely positive with a flood of bookings for their first day.

“Everybody has wanted to see what is going on,” he added.

Temple Spa founders, Liz and Mark Warom, who have previously lived in Clare and Sudbury, acted as spa consultants on the project.

More than 30 Temple Spa treatments are available at Weavers’ House, from a Turkish Delight body exfoliation to a Mediterranean Marinade facial, plus a range of products.
