Win a £600 spa stay with breakfast, lunch and dinner at Hoar Cross Hall

Reader Treats

If you’re in desperate need of a bit of R&R, then we have just the thing to make 2020 a little (lot!) better – an overnight stay with dinner, breakfast, lunch and a spa treatment for two at the dreamy Hoar Cross Hall in Staffordshire, worth a whopping £600.
Interested? Of course you are! Step right this way…

This elegant retreat is squirrelled away in Needwood Forest, in 50 acres of lush grounds – perfect for getting away from it all, but still within easy reach of the Muddy counties.

Once a glamorous private home for the Meynell Ingram family, Hoar Cross Hall is now a Grade II listed hotel with 96 sumptuous bedrooms to choose from.

Of course, no visit to Hoar Cross Hall would be complete without an hour or two (or six) spent in the award-winning subterranean spa which features two swimming pools, a salt water vitality pool (with wizzy volcano and jet massage) and hydrotherapy pool, designed to melt the stresses of the working week away.

Once you’re suitably soaked, enjoy a sauna, steam, sensory shower, or even a sleep in the Snooze Room (try saying that ten times fast). To round off your spa experience, enjoy a treatment from the Elemis Rituals Menu: a Frangipani Indulgence, Superfood Retreat or Heavenly Hands and Sole Treatment.

The lucky winner will get their mitts on an overnight stay in a Country Double or Twin Room, with breakfast, a lip-smacking  dinner in The Ballroom, Hoar Cross Hall’s AA Rosette restaurant AND three course lunch the following day. They’ll also win a 55 minute treatment in the spa to leave them fully rested and relaxed – so if this sounds up your street, get entering below!
