About The Gainsborough Health Club & Spa

Our health club offers members state-of-the-art health, fitness and leisure facilities along with a highly personalised service in a gorgeous setting.

Our pool and gym are housed in a series of magnificently restored 15th Century timber-framed barns, as beautiful inside as the rolling countryside that surrounds us.

Our spa, as well as benefiting from the health club facilities, includes beautifully appointed treatment rooms, mud serial chamber, luxurious relaxation room, wall panelled coffee and dining area and idyllic courtyard. We offer a wide variety of exceptional Spa and Beauty Treatments and our expert dedicated therapists will ensure that your day will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed and completely rejuvenated.

Simon Thadani - Regional Manager

As a regional manager, I really enjoy my role with the Mosaic Group.

I'm now in my second spell working for the company after spending 12 eventful years in between as first team fitness coach at Ipswich Town Football Club - experiencing life in the Premier League and the Championship, plus two seasons in the UEFA Cup.

Mosaic create an environment which makes it a very good company to work for, as they look after their staff, care for them, always aim to develop them and they give us the freedom to do our jobs.

That's why I really enjoy my role, and spending time at a number of the group's different spa and health clubs.

Cheryl Farmer - Operations Manager

My journey in fitness started just 4 years ago. After working out at home to DVDs my sister asked me to help her and I discovered I was ‘a natural' at correcting her techniques and positioning. So, at the ripe age of 30 I decided to change my career and go into fitness. After 18 months of studying and working at a local gym I wanted to progress my career further and found a position at the Gainsborough Heath Club And Spa as Duty Manager.

Since being at the Gainsborough Health Club & Spa I have been encouraged to continue working towards and gaining more qualifications and have been promoted to my current role, Operations Manager.

The best bit about my job? Working with a great team and simply being a part of the process that helps our members improve their fitness and well being.

Amanda Coppock - Spa Manager

I have worked within the spa industry for the past 11 years and have been Spa Manager of The Gainsborough Health Club & Spa since 2014.

I love the variety my role brings; No day is ever the same and having a background in training, it is most rewarding to watch the spa team grow and develop.

The spa industry is forever changing and with the support of the team at Mosaic, I love to generate new ideas, partnerships and offers. The best part of my job undoubtedly though is when our guests go out of their way to thank us all for an amazing and relaxing spa experience.

We look forward to pampering you soon at The Gainsborough Health Club & Spa
