Stanley House is an award-winning hotel and spa, nestled in 54 acres of Ribble Valley countryside. Itís a hotel like no other.
Situated in Mellor (in between Preston and Blackburn), the hotel is privately owned and run by the Walker family and opened in 2004 following a spectacular conversion of the ruins of a 17th century manor house, titled Stanley House. The Grade II listed building, demonstrating its heritage is now complemented with opulent modern additions and also benefits from unspoiled views of the Ribble Valley countryside. This refreshing fusion of the conventional and contemporary makes Stanley House the number one destination of choice.
Stanley House Hotel & Spa boasts an array of resort-standard facilities making it a leading choice for daytime and evening diners, weddings, leisure and spa breaks, corporate meetings and events and private celebrations.
For some, the Spa at Stanley House Hotel provides a helping of relaxation away from the stresses of today. For others, a place to enjoy an unrivalled luxury self-indulgent experience. But for all, the Spa at Stanley Houses symbolises an exceptional lifestyle choice whether paying a visit as a local guest or as part of a destination break at the hotel.
Located deep in the heart of the Stanley House Ribble Valley estate, the spa opened in 2012 and was designed by some of the world's best spa consultants.
The Spa at Stanley House reflects the elegance of natural rural beauty, with peaceful views over undulating hills from every aspect within the spa.
