A huge gym and fitness space is opening at Calcot hotel and spa in Tetbury this February 2024.

The new £5 million development, named the Grain Store, brings a gym and fitness sanctuary for guests and members to make the most of the latest technology to improve wellbeing and self-care.

Built within an old agricultural building that used to store grain within the hotel’s grounds, the space has been transformed into a state-of-the-art gym, exercise studio, spin shed and cafe.

CEO of Calcot Collection, Richard Ball, said: 'This significant £5 million investment has been in the planning for some years.

'The spa at Calcot has had a wait list for membership since it first opened nearly 20 years ago, and the Grain Store allows us to extend this membership group at a time when well-being and fitness are an increasingly important part of everyday life. We are so excited to open.'

The Grain Store has been designed by specialists within the sector, Sparcstudio.

Sparcstudio Design Consultants designed the original Calcot Manor in 2004 and the team is particularly proud to have repurposed the agricultural building into a new wellbeing space using upcycled and sustainable materials.

The investment includes the UK’s first stretch pod, following a launch in Dubai at the end of 2023.

The Grain Store personal trainers will perform all assisted stretching to help improve manoeuvrability, flexibility and give a deeper result from work outs.

The gym includes Technogym equipment, bikes, treadmills, cross trainers, rowing machines, free weights, Olympic squat racks, resistance kit as well as an outdoor six piece Kompan outdoor gym.

New studios will offer holistic sound healing, yoga, pilates, barre and ballet sessions.

Prices for Grain Store membership is £200 per month with a joining fee of £300.
