Last weekend I visited the beautiful Moddershall Oaks country spa retreat in Staffordshire which offers spa days, spa breaks and treatments. This place is a little hidden gem located in the countryside about one hour drive from Manchester. The retreat has recently opened an outdoor spa courtyard including a heated vitality spa pool, relaxation lounge, sauna and spa deli serving delicious snacks, cakes & coffee. This place is perfect to visit all year round, in the height of summer you can sunbathe on the loungers and enjoy the facilities and in the winter you can relax by the wood burning fire which is in the outdoor area. I found the place to be very relaxing and the perfect location to wind down after a long week at work. We began our day in the indoor pool area where you could relax on the heated tiled loungers, enjoy the jacuzzi and steam room and forget about everything else going on around you!
