Have you ever wanted to go to a beautiful spa hotel, but not wanted the big massive lobbies and loads of people? Three Horseshoes in Leek ticks all the boxes. The hotel has a spa, that you do pay extra for – but its worth it! Check out their website for current promotions. When we stayed there, we paid around £300 for an overnight spa break. It included a hot tub room (more on that later!), and then the morning in the spa. That included a beach hut treatment. This isn’t a treatment in the true sense of the word. You basically go into this beach hut with your partner and have a truly relaxing half an hour, listening to music and watching lights. It sounds rubbish – its really not. It was so relaxing.

The spa itself has an amazing hydrotherapy pool, and the best sauna I have ever been in, It goes completely pitch black. You do get used to it and I don’t want to ruin the surprise but its so so worth it.

Food in the hotel is excellent too. The package we bought included a three course dinner and breakfast. The food is just delicious. Well cooked and tasty, big portions. They have a carvery too, pandemic dependent – this is just excellent.

On to the hot tub room! This is called a garden room, as the wooden hot tub is in your own private garden. The room is a great size, with comfortable beds and plush dressing gowns. You are given a big glass lantern with a candle in, so that in the evening when you are enjoying your hot tub, you can enjoy yourself in gorgeous candlelight. The gardens are completely private, not overlooked, and with high fences around. There are also other rooms – our friends stayed in a superior room and it was lovely.

The local area too has lots of lovely walks, with bigger shopping towns not far away. Enjoy!! This would be a perfect end hotel for one of our hotel hopping trips!
