More country than Country Life, historic Stapleford Park is one of the finest stately houses around. Many hotels can lay claim to an air of aristocratic grandeur or creaking olde-worlde charm, but few could match the character of this sprawling Leicestershire pile. With maze-like gardens, a resident falconer, croquet, pentanque and even a few woolly sheep grazing in the grounds, this landmark property is the perfect English escape.
In addition to its high-ceilinged rooms, open fires and antique furnishings, Stapleford Park boasts a championship 18-hole golf course and an award-winning spa located in the old Victorian stable block, just a short stroll from the hotel’s heated indoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. A destination for dining too, the hotel features a genteel restaurant awarded two AA Rosettes, where guests might dine on aged beef and British cheeses.
How to Get There
My husband and I have just returned from a one night spa break here and we had a really wonderful time. We booked through Spa Breaks for use of the facilities, spa treatment, 3 course dinner, bed and breakfast. The hotel is in a beautiful, picturesque location surrounded by beautiful scenery. The hotel is very stately and old-fashioned; in a good way! We were very warmly welcomed & shown to our room which was delightful and spacious. Once we had unpacked we headed to the pool area and enjoyed using the warm pool, sauna, stream room and jacuzzi. We then walked to the leisure building for our full body massages; wow! Amazing treatment, I would like to give Emma a special mention as she was great. We both felt well and truly relaxed as we wandered back through the grounds to the hotel. Pre-dinner drinks by the fire in the drawing room were enjoyed before a delicious three course dinner. Our room (Lyttle) was close to a staircase so was a little noisy but didn’t disturb us too much. And breakfast was wonderful- very relaxed and not at all rushed. If we could we would go back tomorrow...would highly recommend!
Fantastic! Beautiful house, warm and courteous staff. Lovely elegant but warm feeling! The food is gorgeous and well presented! The rooms are a of a high standard in a traditional style in keeping with the overall historic feel of the house. We had a minor issue, which the hotel dealt with within minutes with no hesitation. Fantastic service. Loved it!
Had a fantastic weekend with friends for
a special birthday treat for my wife.
Following a visit several years ago, it was always a birthday treat I’ve wanted to arrange with our friends.
From the moment I contacted Stapleford Park, they have been very accommodating to help assure that my wife was made to feel very special from the moment we arrived in the impressive open fire reception area.
We were fortunate to be given an upgrade from a house room to a Manor room, having the ‘Max’ Pike room. Just wow.
My wife also received a birthday card and present from the hotel staff, which was a very nice touch.
We ordered a hotel made birthday cake which was brought to the table after our evening meal and looked and tasted amazing.
The spa pool area was very clean and attractive, with a dark blue colour to the pool. Whilst the steam room is not the largest, the whole spa area is very nice.
We settled down in the main middle hall area for afternoon drinks and they lit the fire whilst we were served drinks and lunch.
As we were in a party of 8 for the birthday, the main evening meal was in a unique small dining room of three tables, making it very unique and intimate. The quality of the food was amazing, specially the beef dish.
Breakfast was also a very enjoyable experience with lots of fruit, pastries, cold meats, salmon, kippers and of course all the usual cooked breakfast items, that again of very high quality. The plates could of been a little warmer, though perhaps had just been replenished in the plate warmer.
Thank you Emma and the team at Stapleford Park for all the unique touches to make my wife’s birthday very special for her and our friends. We look forward to returning sometime in the future.
