With a concept that is committed to providing amazing treatments in a luxurious rustic location THE BEAUTY EMPORIUM RETREAT is located within the grounds of Moorside house, an exceptional grade 2 listed period house steeped in history involving the women's suffrage movement. Lydia Becker, who spent her childhood at Moorside House, was a leading figure of the early suffragette movement. She was born in Chadderton in 1827, the daughter of a leading industrialist. During her lifetime she founded the Ladies' Literary Society in Manchester and she was in regular contact with Charles Darwin, encouraging him to publish his theories on various aspects of plant development.
After hearing arguments for the enfranchisement of women she founded the Women's Suffrage Journal and the committee she formed to press the case was the first of its kind in Britain. She was often lampooned in the national press hostile to women's rights but she continued to campaign peacefully for many decades, dying in the spa town of Aix-en-Bains in 1890 without having seen her ambitions realised.
THE BEAUTY EMPORIUM RETREAT team provide spa treatments, rituals and packages with their chosen spa partner [comfort zone] within these beautiful grounds, creating the a perfect synergy for the ultimate retreat.
