Eco-friendly wellness Glass House Retreat opens in Essex

The Glass House Retreat, a new eco-friendly health and wellness retreat, has opened in Bulphan, Essex.

Located on several acres of countryside, the retreat offers an all-inclusive approach to health and wellness, working with guests to create tailor-made wellness programmes based on the guests needs and goals.

It was developed by Jarvis Development Group, a family-run construction firm based in Essex, and is the brainchild of co-founder and director Joy Jarvis.

The eco-friendly retreat was purpose-built with the end-user in mind and features solar panels, a ground source heat pump and rain water recycling technology.

It boasts a range of facilities including a spa with eight treatment rooms, a salt block sauna, pool, cryotherapy chamber and a communal lounge and dining area, while a fitness studio and gym, outfitted with Matrix fitness equipment, completes the offering.

An extensive treatment menu, featuring facials, massages and full-body rituals from Elemis, as well as treatments from Dermalux and Lipofirm is also on offer.

Russell Jarvis, financial director and co-founder of The Glass House, said: "The Glass House began as the passion project of my mother Joy, who has been visiting wellness retreats for years. While her experiences were always inspiring, she felt there was room for improvement.

"Being able to plan The Glass House from scratch has allowed us to create an impressive building not only of architectural significance, but also purpose-built to deliver a premium and bespoke retreat experience."
