Stapleford Park is a quintessentially English getaway into the Leicestershire countryside.

A Grad I listed country hotel, golf course and spa which was originally occupied by the Earl of Harborough is the perfect place to escape and enjoy a relaxing weekend.

The house itself is breathtaking, from the moment you drive into the grounds of the house, to the beautiful grand dining halls and individually designed bedrooms which are sure to take you back to the 19th century.

We were lucky to receive a package weekend as a gift from my parents; which included a nights stay, 2 spa treatments of your choice, x2 dinner and breakfast in bed – what could be better?

Upon arrival at Stapleford park, a lovely receptionist greets you at your car where you are helped with you luggage and has a great little chat to you about your journey.  The receptionist quickly checks you into your room, no funny business – I hate when it seems to take hours to just check in what takes them so long, anyway a really lovely young guy checked us into our room, no. 10, Wedgwood.

As you can see from the photos below, the room was awesome and our absolute favourite part was after you returned from dinner in the evening, the duvet was turned down ready for you to go to bed, alongside some tasty little chocolates and a hot water bottle to keep you warm at night.

Previous to dinner, we both enjoyed an hour full body massage in the spa area of the house.  The spa area is located in a separate building to the house, and upon request, the staff will drive you across to the spa, but I would advise to take the short walk to enjoy the gardens.

Slightly later on in the evening, we ventured downstairs to the dining room for dinner.. which I have to say was great but a bit too up tight for my liking, but great nonetheless.

However, the best part is still to come, you have to have a look into the bar area which is manned by two funny european men, the room is surrounded with book shelves and if you look carefully there are a few hidden doors in the book cases…. who knows what you might find.

Anyway, Stapleford Park is an amazing country getaway which you are sure to enjoy whether you go with friends, family, your partner or your kids, there is something for everyone.  Make sure you check out their website for further information:
