The Three Horseshoes Inn lowdown
The Three Horseshoes Inn is a family run hotel that has gained a wonderful reputation for being one of the best places to stay in Staffordshire – it offers cheaper rooms above the pub and boutique style rooms with their own hot tub in a quieter part of the grounds. The hotel prides itself on using local produce in its elegant restaurant. And the spa? It’s wonderful – a whole lot of thought has gone into it, resulting in a fine and indulgent spa experience for guests.
There’s a beach hut experience in a cossetting hut in which you lie on hot sand, listen to relaxing music and take in relaxing essential oil sets whilst watching film of the sunrise and set (and all in 25 mins). There’s a steam bath experience in a Peak District stone bath set in a typical Peak District stone barn. The Mill Wheel Shower from which the spa takes its name has alternatively warm and cold spouting out of it and is the perfect spray experience after the sauna or stone bath. There’s also a stylish plunge pool and a beautiful relaxation suite.
What else is there to do round there?
Walk and enjoy the historic surroundings – this is a prime tourist spot. Situated on the stunning Blackshaw Moor in the picturesque market town of Leek in Staffordshire, the Three Horseshoes is the perfect place to stay if you want to explore the southwestern edge of the Peak District. Leek itself has stone crosses in the churchyard dating back to the 1Oth and 11th century. There is a lively market here on Wednesdays and Leek is considered the main town in the area. In the 18th and 19th centuries it became a centre for silk weaving (hence the mill references in the area, including the Mill Wheel Spa) – you can visit Cheddleton Flint Mill which is 3 miles south of Leek and which is a listed building and two wonderful water mills. And as for that walking that we mentioned… You can explore the whole of the Peak District from here but one place that a lot of walkers and rock climbers head to is The Roaches, which is part of the Peak District National Park and is stunning.
