Description

Wandering into Henlow Grange is like stepping back in time.

Henlow Grange has over 40 years history as a health farm and has been a centre of peace for centuries and recently completed a major renovation and the new facilities include a Laconium, herbal steam chamber, two fitness studios.

A state of the art Rasul mud chamber and thalassotherapy pool are also available. All bedrooms have been refurbished and even the modern standard rooms are equipped with a flat screen TV and DVD player.

Henlow Grange is decorated in the finest Georgian style, with opulent upholstered furniture, hand painted walls and Venetian style mirrors. Henlow Grange’s charm lies in its reverence to the past whilst providing the latest spa facilities. Soak up the atmosphere of another time and way of life and bathe in the beauty that is Henlow Grange.

History

In 1896, George Gribble, a descendent of Sir Francis Cook, purchased the Grange. It was also to become home to his son, Major Philip Gribble, a famous military correspondent in WW2. The Lennox-Boyd family then took over residency at Henlow Grange until the mid-fifties.

During 1961, Leida Costigan bought the Grange for conversion into a health and beauty farm. It had been unoccupied for seven years and the ravages of time and vandalism had made the Grange almost inhabitable.

A large elder tree blocked the main gates and over 1000 window planes were smashed.

After extensive refurbishment, Henlow Grange became a health farm, with an average of six guests at a time.

In 1981, the Purdew family purchased Henlow Grange from Mrs Costigan. Henlow Grange became the first resort in the Champneys family. Since then Champneys has continued to improve the magnificent Grange.

In August 1985, Sir Jimmy Saville opened the new Saville Wing extension and on September 27th 1990, the newly restored Cupola Tower was unveiled by Sir Nicholas Lyell, MP for Mid Bedfordshire, and dedicated to the memory of Mr Robert Purdew who died in May 1990.

In 2003, Henlow Grange completed a major refurbishment. The new facilities include a Laconium, additional treatments rooms and a Rasul Mud Chamber and Thalassotherapy pool.
