England’s Champneys Henlow Grange Reopens

Following a serious fire last November and a å£4 million renovation project, Champneys Henlow Grange Health Farm in Bedfordshire, owned by the Purdew Group, has been re-launched and restored to its former glory.

The renovation at one of the UK’s favourite health farm is impressive, and although the spa is still currently completing its major transformation, a company spokesperson for Champneys stated, “The Henlow experience now reveals a level of luxury unrivalled in any health farm. All that has been retained is the friendliness and charm, which has made Henlow famous for over forty years.”
