I must start by saying Thank You to the team at Red Letter Days for inviting us along to a Pamper Treat and Afternoon Tea at the Three Horse Shoes Country Inn and Spa. It was such a treat and just what we both needed after a very long week at the office. Set in a peaceful location on the edge of the Staffordshire Peak Park – I don’t think there is a better way to spend a blustery Saturday. Than at a Spa with only a magazine, coffee and croissants on the agenda.
We spent a truly relaxing 6 hours in the Spa, moving between the sauna rooms, plunge pool (oh my goodness that was cold), Jacuzzi, relaxation room and beyond. I’m not sure I could pin point my favourite spot, although I did manage to read a magazine from start to finish in the relaxation room. Something I haven’t done in such a long time.
As Spa’s go I loved the look and feel of The Mill Wheel Spa, petite and perfectly positioned with the most stunning views. Disappointingly no pool for Mr H but that didn’t spoil our day. I can imagine it being so beautiful in the warmer months – sat outside with only the sound of the Jacuzzi bubbles around you. Or even when there is snow on the hill tops. Can you imagine?
And to top it all off we ended our relaxing few hours with a scrumptious afternoon tea served in The Country Inn. Recently refurbished – such a gorgeous setting. We both loved the traditional yet modern look and could see ourselves returning for a Sunday Roast with George.
We sipped tea whilst eating finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam and lets not forget some rather scrumptious homemade cakes. Delicious! We even took a goody bag home for our gorgeous boy as there was so much.
The perfect way to spend the day, a Valentines day treat or special occasion.
