Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? In the lane, snow is glistening. A beautiful sight. We're happy tonight. Walking in a winter wonderland. Except in reality so called ‘Winter Wonderlands’ don’t quite live up to their magical name. Sick of the frantic, festive crowds? Get away from it all at a real woodland wonderland, the picturesque Moddershall Oaks. Our spa of the week…
Situated within 72 acres of Staffordshire countryside, over the past 12 years Moddershall Oaks has been transformed from country property to luxury spa resort. A family run business, this spa prides itself on its exceptional standards of service (waiting on you hand and foot so you really get an opportunity to relax) and dedication to giving each of its individual guests a totally unique visit. To help with this they have assembled an expert team and an environment designed to help you make real ‘personal gains’ during your time there.
In this environment you will find the latest in hydrotherapy technology, a multitude of indulgent treatments inspired by years of experience and knowledge from around the world, 5 star guest accommodation (with accreditation from Visit Britain, and a stunning Oriental inspired décor) and a Lakeside restaurant, serving up delicious offerings for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
One thing that sets Moddershall Oaks apart from other spas are it’s breath-taking outdoor facilities. While some alfresco activities aren’t ideal this time of year, borrow a pair of the spa’s wellies and a snowy stroll through the spa’s 70 acres of woodland and parkland is about as festive as it comes. If you’re feeling brave guests can also enjoy the spa’s wood-side tennis courts, an outdoor hot tub and complimentary bicycles and cycling equipment.
Once you’ve enjoyed the winter wonderland make your way inside where you can warm up and enjoy facilities including a swimming pool, sauna, steam room, hydrotherapy pool, experience showers, reflexology footbaths and a relaxation lounge complete with books, magazines and portable DVD players. For the more active Wahanderer there is also a state of the art gym with Technogym Wellness System.
The treatments on offer come from some of the best names in the business including Bumble and Bumble hair-care products, Aveda hair colour, Shellac nails and, being an exclusive Elemis spa, an abundance of indulgent Elemis therapies. The treatment menu at Moddershall Oaks’ is heaving with options to suit all. Choose between a quick mini mani or full on Shellac mani-pedi, a host of different massages (including Bamboo, Lava Shells and a Chocolate Back Massage) or indulgent Elemis rituals like the Elemis Coconut Rub & Milk Ritual Wrap or Float.
If you’re stuck shopping for that friend who has everything – we all have one – then why not take a look at Moddershall Oaks' page and treat her (or possibly him) to a treatment, spa day or overnight escape. A relaxing break and crossing something off your Christmas list? That’s our kind of multi-tasking. where you can book treatments, days and overnight escapes now.
