Spa-goers will enjoy a spot of spa indulgence at this boutique bolthole known as Moddershall Oaks – a country retreat near Stone in Staffordshire when you can spa, wine and dine, and of course, sleep
First of all, the spa menu is not short on its list of treatments to try. Facials, scrubs, wraps and various types of massages and more – you name it, they’ve most probably got it. We experienced the relaxing Elemis full body massage with softening scented oils but were more so invited to discover the latest limited edition twenty-five minute treats created for the colder season that will stay on the menu until the new year.
To give you a closer look at these winter warming treats, leaping with an invigorating zing, sweet pumpkin is blended with fiery spices to create a refreshing salted body scrub. After a dry body brush, the scrub down itself begins, followed by a quick shower off and a cocooning body moisturise.
For those who want to body beam with radiance, the ginger, sweet orange and cocoa bean wrap is a spicy, stimulating and energising herbal clay stuffed with anti-oxidants and fragrant star anise. It’s layered over your skin and left on for a while to work its magic.
We also love the sound of the gold honey back massage to help de-stress with its decadent caviar extract and amber scent, and the shimmering gold back treat – another scrub, this time infused with gold sugar cane to give you a fresh buff and shine. There’s even a winter warming sweet neroli and mandarin pregnancy massage to support circulation and most of all, allow you to relax.
Secondly, the trend of soaking in the spa hotel’s outdoor hot tubs in the winter sun, or underneath the moonlit stars with a chilled glass of fizz, is not to be missed. Try to steal a moment in the shared hot tub by Moddershall Oaks’ 10 bedrooms for the chance of more privacy and to be closer to your suite. With the provided super-soft bathrobe, you’ll be fully cocooned from the cold.
For those who want to spend some more time in Staffordshire, it’s well worth the trip to Stoke-On-Trent to the home of renowned earthenware pottery brand Emma Bridgewater. Here, you can visit the factory in the heart of the historic Stoke Potteries, check out the cheery tea shop filled with the famous crockery and pick up some pieces from the shop (or back at Moddershall Oaks, who are also big fans). The World of Wedgewood teashop is also nearby, offering its very own afternoon tea service, dining half for lunch, plus a factory tour and shop too.
