Yorkshire spa welcomes new manager

Wednesday 26 July, 2017


Richard Macklin has been appointed Spa Manager for the new Country Club & Spa at Swinton Estate in North Yorkshire, which opened this month.

Macklin joins the new destination spa on the family-owned and run estate from Hoar Cross Hall in Staffordshire, where he was Spa Director. He brings with him 25 years' experience in the fitness, leisure and spa industry, as well as wide-ranging commercial acumen and a proven, strategic track record.

The new destination spa will be committed to overall wellness, with treatments and products by Elemis and Bamford. It is the vision of Felicity and Mark Cunliffe-Lister, whose family have had ownership of the estate since the 1880s. "We are thrilled Richard is joining us," Felicity comments. 

"His wealth of experience will ensure the spa has a flying start, and his impressive track record will help the spa and the team to grow, so we can deliver a very special experience to all our guests."
