I decided to book a weekend away somewhere near Cheshire Oaks but in a rural setting. Both me & my husband have been so busy with work so a weekend in a rural hotel was just what we needed.

My partner and I stayed here as part of the £74 pp spa use, 30min treatment, nights stay and breakfast deal. All in all this was a fantastic value for money deal and I would really recommend as a brief getaway. The spa facilities & treatments were fantastic- steam/ sauna/ herbal sauna/ rasul mud/ refreshments in garden room/ snooze room/...
