Mill Wheel Spa

The Mill Wheel Spa at The Three Horseshoes Country Inn is nestled in the picturesque Staffordshire Peak District. The Spa opened in March 2015 and offers interesting and unusal spa features including The Beach Hut experience and Farmer's Sauna. Central to the spa is the UK's first water-powered mill wheel shower. In the summer, you can also enjoy an outdoor spa garden with hydrotherapy pool and views of the countryside. Try a range of natural beauty and wellbeing treatments from Heaven by Deborah Mitchell and alpine pioneer, Kurland.

Public Opinion

This spa is...

What others are saying

"Lovely atmosphere but a bit lacklustre. Marketing have been a bit too 'creative' with descriptions. The 'brechel-inspired farmer's sauna' is literally just a sauna, nothing more...and quite a mild sauna at that. The 'mineral Stonebath' is just a warm room...not hot enough to be a sauna, not steamy at all; a bit confusing really. Nor does the 'hydrotherapy pool' (a warm-ish jacuzzi) have views of the countryside...it's in an interior courtyard, albeit a nicely decorated one, overlooked by hotel rooms. Although my favourite part, the 'beach hut experience' was a bit of a let down too: the 'warm sand' was less sandy and more gravelly, so with nothing but thin raffia mats to lay on, it was pretty uncomfortable. That said, the changing rooms were lovely, and everywhere was sparkling clean. Staff were attentive and the ambience was pleasant. But a few little details, especially the lack of relaxing music or any aromatherapy in any of the areas, or the lukewarm drinking water, kept it from feeling truly relaxing or luxurious. "
