Arrive and settle into your luxury Spa Hotel and explore the facilities in this 18th century manor house set in its own landscaped grounds. The contemporary rooms beautifully combine the past and present and are all furnished to exceptional standards. If time permits we can organise a ride for you this afternoon, if not riding will start tomorrow morning. This evening you may like to dine in the hotel’s Marco Pierre White restaurant or indulge in some tlc at the luxury club and spa. Your package includes a 2 hour session to enjoy the incredible sensory journey through a variety of thermal rooms, and finish up with a dip in the outdoor thermal pool.
After breakfast make the short drive into the Cheshire countryside to our riding stables (10 miles away), after a short assessment you will be allocated a horse suitable for your size and experience and your journey of discovery will begin. Lunch can be a bar snack at the adjacent hotel or a local pub just minutes away. If you are hacking out you will be enjoying a picturesque ride along bridleways and quiet country lanes. Later this afternoon why not enjoy a trip into Chester to explore the famous shopping 'rows' and the roman walls.
After breakfast in the hotel it's off to the stables to complete your riding itinerary with your final lesson or hack. If you rode on your first day then you are free this afternoon to explore the area before heading home, otherwise you can choose between a lesson or hack for your final ride.
Spa treatments are available to pre-book at the hotel. There are a range of treatments to choose from including facials, full body massage and hot stone therapy.
