Rothgen Capital UK are proud to announce the launch of the latest funding round for The Tyram Lakes Hotel, Spa and Resort in Hatfield, near Doncaster in Yorkshire UK. As a truly groundbreaking project, Tyram Lakes is utilising the latest cutting edge ecological and eco-friendly innovations as inherent parts of its designs and is the first of its kind, thus of particular interest to energy focussed investors.
The Tyram Lakes Hotel, Spa and Resort is set in the heart of the Humberside Peatlands, Hatfield Moor and the National Nature Reserve in South Yorkshire. Plans are already approved for 325 luxury eco-lodges set on and around 65 acres of lakes adjacent to 100 acres of natural woodlands, plus the hotel and spa.
Some of the lodges (125) will be floating structures, and the remaining 200 will be set amid the vast woodlands. Ranging from two and three bedrooms, as well as a number of larger four bedroom accommodations, all lodges will blend into the landscape providing a private gateway with natural spaces all around. Their attractions include rooftop gardens fitted with solar panels, decking areas with sunken spa bath and a choice of classic or contemporary interiors.
Sitting at the heart of the resort is a planned boutique hotel designed by Den Architecture in association with Baca Architects, specialists in eco-friendly and amphibious projects. This ambitious hotel will feature 104 rooms, conference and meeting facilities, a fine dining restaurant with lakeside views, and indoor pool, leisure club, spa, gymnasium, and a picturesque wedding and party venue.
The application to build the green resort was approved by Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council in December 2016, commencing with the first phase of 50 eco-lodges constructed from timber and incorporating the latest environmentally-friendly technologies providing a tranquil escape in a beautiful natural habitat.
Speaking at the time, Daulton Byfield, managing director of Rothgen, the company behind the project, said: “The Tyram Lakes Hotel, Spa&Resort will be the first of its type in the UK. We are planning to invest £25m to create a first class eco holiday village where visitors can relax amongst nature and enjoy a quiet break from hectic modern life.”
The scheme comprises four phases of development:
- Phase1 – 50 Lakeside and floating lodges
- Phase2 – 104 Bedroom Hotel, Spa, and Leisure Centre
- Phase3 – 75 Lakeside and floating lodges
- Phase4 – 200 Woodland retreat lodges
…. and embraces the very latest science and technology to create a resort which is designed to function through environmentally accredited solutions that are energy efficient, all of which engage and sustain the local ecosystems.
“The scale and ambitious nature of the plans will ensure the resort is one the most luxurious, fun and relaxing holiday destinations in Europe. This green development will be as sustainable as it’s currently possible to build, and be exemplary case study for other developers,” says Baca Associate, Andrew Scrace.
Efficient and ecological solutions
Geyser Thermal Energy (GTE) was tasked with the design for the heating and hot water system for The Tyram Lakes Resort which focuses on energy efficiency and sustainability. At inception, the site had very limited electrical and water supplies (with no gas supply) and it was crucial that the system would not have a negative impact on the local ecology.
GTE devised an innovative approach of using the main lake as a heat source for the lodges, coupled with various (nonchemical) water filtration processes that further reduced energy consumption and the need for chemicals.
Such an innovative renewable heating system coupled with highly efficient and ecologically sound water solutions will mean minimal running costs and environmental impact for the development.
It may then come as no surprise that the interest attracted by Tyram Lakes is not just from the Green and Eco sectors. Its existing design and sustainability has led to the world famous ARMANI brand becoming involved with the design of a selection of exclusive lodges on the site. This will make The Tyram Lakes Resort & Spa the first ever Armani development inside the UK.
Now partnering too with Natural England who have a sizeable park neighbouring Tyram Lakes, and who have agreed to complimentary access for Tyram Lakes guests, providing countless more acres for hiking, trails, exploration and more. And as though these factors aren’t enough to persuade investors, Hoseasons, the UK’s largest park operator, has recently agreed to guarantee the rental on the lodges at the resort, providing evidential balance sheet background for those wishing to invest.
Oh, and just down the road the Yorkshire Wildlife Park has recently announced its £50M expansion which will potentially make it a top UK destination.
So, it’s all happening in Doncaster, Yorkshire, and The Tyram Lakes Resort & Hotel is inviting investors to play along……
