Michael Bannister, Chairman of The Coniston Hotel, says: “I’m absolutely delighted to be able to make this announcement right at the beginning of the New Year. It’s going to be an exciting 2015 for all involved in the development of the spa, and we’re expecting that before the end of the year we will have created a fantastic new facility for thousands of hotel guests and local residents, and one which will not only create 30 new jobs but will bring more visitors to this part of the Dales for years to come”.
