It’s been a long and fruitful journey for Ramside Estates in the six years since planning was approved to invest in the spa and hotel facilities, and UNW have been with them at every step along the way.

With £16m invested into the state-of-the-art spa facility, which delivers the very best in health and wellbeing, Ramside Estates can relax safe in the knowledge that their financial affairs are well in order as they look to implement further expansion over the coming years. Current plans in the pipeline include the building of luxury lodges and treehouses, new rooms within the hotel and a new multi-purpose function room capable of seating over 2000 people.

Talking about the impact of the new spa, Ramside Estate owner John Adamson said: “It has been a huge success for us, allowing us to access new revenue markets and catch up with international competitors. Times, and expectations, are changing, and it’s brought a completely new dimension to the hotel to ensure we meet those expectations. UNW have been a vital part in enabling us to do that.”

“The advice, support and professionalism we’ve received from them over the past 10 years has ensured I can sleep easy at night. Having a close relationship with your accountant is vital and has been a major factor in allowing me to grow my business. Long may it continue!”

Andrew Wilson, Managing Partner at UNW, said: “The continued investment by Ramside Estates encapsulates the entrepreneurism of the Adamson family and their desire to deliver the very best offering in their sector. We are delighted to have been able to support this with a broad range of services over the years, and really enjoy working with John and the team.”
