Greenspan Projects has announced that construction has started on a new leisure and adventure area within the grounds of Holiday Inn Corby/Kettering. The woodland area, called Iron Pitt Woods, is set to open in early July and will be home to an 18-hole adventure golf course and aerial high ropes assault course and zip wire. The site will be managed by Jamie Jackson, woodland manager for Holiday Inn Corby/Kettering. Greenspan designed the project and is currently at work on the build.
Holiday Inn Corby/Kettering is a full-service 110-bedroom IHG hotel with various dining options. It features five luxury spa treatment rooms, a fully equipped gym and an indoor swimming pool, as well as a sauna, a steam room, a jacuzzi and six spacious meeting rooms. There is also free car parking and high-speed Wi-Fi. With the addition of the new outdoor facilities, the operator will have the ability to offer leisure and corporate team-building packages.
The new adventure golf course, which will be a first for Corby, will also be open to the public and will be available for functions, such as corporate events and birthday parties. The development is part of the hotel’s commitment to enhance the nature surrounding it.
Enhancing the visitor experience
Thanks to the new adventure facility, the hotel will be able to offer an improved experience to guests. It will also act as a great addition to the town.
“We felt that there was a gap for this in the local area and we could benefit both the business and the wider community,” says Jackson. “Greenspan came across as by far the sharpest during the research and tender process. We would love to continue and add more development in time, it will depend on the success of this. Greenspan is key in that.”
Rod Morton, CEO of Greenspan Projects, adds:
“Hotels and resorts are really upping their game when it comes to enhancing their venues, with the visitor’s experience at the forefront. We were delighted to be approached by IHG Hotels and Resorts for Holiday Inn Corby/Kettering to help them develop their dream to do just this. Their vision is to utilise their stunning natural surroundings to bring forward an adventure attraction that will ultimately bring even more joy to visitors – and although their current offering is already extensive, this will be the jewel in the crown.”
“Aerial adventures are a great deal of fun to work on – and engaging with Holiday Inn Corby/Kettering has been a genuine pleasure,” says John Whitehead, sales consultant for Greenspan Projects. “They have put their clientele at the forefront from the get-go and they are onto something truly unique and exciting here. I, for one, am looking forward to the end result. Prepare for a new adventure… with a twist!”
