We look forward to welcoming you!

Located in Thorpe-le-Soken, Essex, an hour and twenty minutes by train from London and a ten minute drive from the pretty beach town of Frinton-on-sea. Lifehouse is a new contemporary health spa, offering a unique, life-enriching experience, tailor-made for every guest.

Dedicated experts, specialising in key areas such as fitness, life coaching, nutrition, weight loss, medical, alternative and holistic therapy and horticulture have been recruited to ensure highly personalised, specialised and tailormade programmes to suit every guest's needs.

Building on this extensive project began in May 2009 and following a £30 million investment over 20 months, Lifehouse opened its doors to guests for the very first time in December 2010. Award winning architects and interior designers, The Manser Practice, renowned for innovative and stylish projects, have been responsible for the build and the interiors of this exciting new development.

When asked about the development, Jonathan Manser commented "The chance to design a brand new spa in beautiful listed gardens has been a once in a life time experience. The new buildings are modern, simple and restrained and form a series of courtyards creating outside ‘rooms’ linking the interior to the less formal existing gardens. Views out of the buildings across the gardens occur in almost every direction and once the planting is established the new spa will sit calmly in its setting; a haven of peace and quiet."

Lifehouse has 89 guestrooms - all with wonderful views of the gardens or courtyard - 35 treatment rooms, plus gym, outdoor fitness circuit, yoga / Pilates studio, swimming pool, thermal spa area, relaxation areas, 15 manicure and pedicure stations, make up bays, a hairdressing salon and a spa boutique.

This day and stay spa is set within 130 acres of beautiful grounds which include 12 acres of historic, listed gardens. The gardens were much improved in the 1920s and '30s by Lady Byng, the one time mistress of Thorpe Hall and wife of Lord Byng, a personal envoy to George V.
