Lifehouse Spa & Hotel

A contemporary award-winning spa nestled in the surroundings of English Heritage Listed Gardens.


Lifehouse Spa & Hotel is set in a beautiful location in Thorpe-le-Soken, Essex, surrounded by 12 acres of English Heritage gardens.  Only 90 minutes by train from London and ten minutes away from the picturesque beach town of Frinton-on-Sea, Lifehouse is an exciting destination offering unique, life-enhancing experiences, bespoke for each guest. This is a unique haven of peace and serenity – be prepared to get relaxed, centered and pampered!
The design at Lifehouse Spa & Hotel is modern and restrained. The buildings form a series of courtyards creating outside “rooms”, linking the interior to the gardens outside. The result is a light, contemporary and relaxing setting.
