A destination for rest and relaxation, Armathwaite Hall is a luxurious 4-Star spa retreat boasting beautiful accommodation, set within equally beautiful surroundings. The historical 11 th-century manor house is positioned on the shores of the idyllic Bassenthwaite Lake, one of the many impressive scenic landmarks nestled within the Lake District National Park.
For those guests taking advantage of the hotel’s spa facilities, a timeless yet contemporary space will greet them, featuring natural surfaces, calming textures and the beauty of our Vulcan wood grain decking. The recently renovated project includes a new lounge area and outdoor relaxation terrace to allow guests to take full advantage of the adjacent garden views. When considering an exterior flooring surface, the designer specified a decking material that would be low maintenance, practical and complement the overall calming scheme. When it comes to wood surfaces and the outdoors, the two don’t mix well. Wood’s naturally hydroscopic composition means that the structure can warp when exposed to water and heat.
Our composite decking boards look, feel and are installed in the same way as natural wood, but they will not rot, splinter, warp or host algae growth, the latter of which means they are also highly anti-slip, even when wet. The Vulcan design brings the natural appeal of wood to the spa’s terrace with the resilience of a composite surface, finished with a UV coating to protect against colour fade resistance, making it ideal for this sunny outdoor setting.
