Manor House Hotel and Spa in Cheshire – an independent, family-run hotel
Nestled in the heart of the East Cheshire countryside, be prepared for a warm welcome when you arrive at The Manor House. The Manor House and Spa is a 4-star hotel, with 53 elegant bedrooms, modern conference and dining facilities, an indoor pool, luxury spa facilities and the locally renowned restaurant Stables Bar & Grill.
The Manor House is just a few miles from Stoke-on-Trent and Crewe, and has been run by the same family since 2013. The stunning area of Staffordshire and Cheshire has many local attractions, such as the Emma Bridgewater Factory, Burleigh pottery, and Monkey Forest, or indulge in some retail therapy at Trentham Shopping Village.
If the outdoors is more for you than hitting the shops, you’ll be pleased to know this hotel is only a 30-minute drive from the beautiful Peak District National park.
The Manor House holds a luxurious brand-new outdoor, English Spa Garden. It features a Pool House, Vitality Pool, Hydrotherapy Tub, Pavilion, Summer House, Salt Steam Inhalation Chamber, Potting Sauna Shed, Plunge Bath and stunning outdoor seating areas to relax and escape rain or shine.
The Pool Swim Up Bar is an amazing concept. Who doesn’t want to sit in a lovely relaxing pool whilst sipping on cocktails?! It’s the perfect hideout to enjoy a selection of delectable beverages & sweet treats.
The Vitality pool is heated to a lovely 38c, which makes it perfect for all seasons. The Pavilion is heated to 30-35c and the Laconium raises the body temperature so this tricks your body into thinking you are starting to get a fever, this in turn helps strengthen your immune system. With the cold weather we have experienced lately, it’s now more important than ever to look after your body and immune system to keep any flu at bay!
The room temperature inside the Pavilion is achieved by heating the floor and loungers allowing you to get a deep penetration of warmth throughout your body while you relax. Enhancing the experience further is the tranquil view of the gardens and fields beyond which instantly calms the mind.
Are you a fan of cold water swims? You will love the plunge bath! Plunge into the fresh-water bath or drench yourself under the bucket shower to invigorate all of your senses and help reduce anxiety & deep-set muscle tightness. This is only for the brave-hearted!
The Manor House also offers a great treatment menu. What’s a spa day without indulging yourself in a luxury treatment? With lavish balms and dazzling scents, warm blankets and cushions, you can be sure Manor House will put wellness back into your lifestyle with a wonderful selection of all-natural therapies.
Treatment choice: Temple Spa Champagne & Truffles Deluxe Treatment – The Creme de la creme!
This facial was incredible! The Manor House used their award-winning truffle skincare with their specialist lifting massage techniques that together iron out deep lines and wrinkles, which help to strengthen muscle tone and reduce puffiness.
Dining at The Stables Bar & Grill was a lovely experience. This is a AA Rosette restaurant set in a 17th Century Farmhouse where locally sourced quality prime ingredients are the heart of the dining experience. The chicken caesar salad was the perfect choice to pair with my spa day. This was made with lardons, parmesan, Caesar dressing, anchovies and croutons. At The Stables Bar & Grill, you also have the option to dine in private which is perfect for special occasions, celebrations and family gatherings. This is a much more intimate experience to treasure.
Overall, the hotel is situated in the most idyllic location. If you are looking to spoil your loved one with a new spa day adventure, this is one to add to your list!
