LOOKING for a getaway fit for a king?
Then Staffordshire’s Moddershall Oaks has the answer.
Whether you want to prep your look before stepping out as Queen of your own Coronation party – or pamper yourself like a princess and hide away from the celebrations – the award-winning resort’s Royally Spoilt spa break is sure to fit the bill.
Set in 72 private acres of rolling countryside, the ten-bedroom boutique hotel and spa is nothing short of palatial.
My companion for the weekend was my teenage son and while not quite a Prince Charming, even he was bowled over by the service, style and luxury on offer.
From freshly smoothed bedding to crisp linen napkins and attentive staff who anticipate your every need, this may be how it feels to be royalty.

The stately experience begins before you even set foot in the spa.
Driving in through the palace-style wrought iron gates, you’re treated to a stunning view of an ornamental lake and sweeping drive leading up to the resort.
As you check in at the delicately scented reception, you are handed a glass of fizzing elderflower – one of the new King’s favourite tipples.
The resort itself is a small country house combined with a tastefully designed barn conversion, with facilities such as a hydrotherapy spa, outdoor heated vitality pool, Kelo sauna, state-of-the-art gym and first-rate restaurant.

The five-star accommodation offers discreet twin and double rooms overlooking open parkland.
There’s even an outdoor spa bath that can be booked privately for free by guests, where you can soak and drink champagne under the stars.
For stressed guests, I’d recommend the 25-minute calming Crown Chakra Massage.
The relaxing treatment aims to improve your energy flow and rejuvenate your skin – and it’s included in the price.
As well as the usual steam room and pool, the spa also offers a unique reflexology foot bath.
Other thoughtful regal touches include the afternoon tea.
We took ours at 3pm, just as Queen Elizabeth was famed for doing.
Served overlooking the lake, the spread includes Her Majesty’s favourite scones, mini cakes, Earl Grey tea and cucumber sandwiches.
And to round it all off, a Kir Royale.
Also included in the package is a two-course dinner in the Oak House restaurant, plus an award-winning breakfast.
Both focus on locally sourced in-season produce.
Our new King is renowned for working late and barely taking a break, so he may benefit from the resort’s Sleeping Lounge.
It offers comfy daybeds, opulent blankets and an indoor firepit to send you gently to sleep.
A 15-minute snooze here is enough to revive even the most overworked Royal.
When you’ve finally finished indulging, enjoy the resort’s Woodland Trail.
We spotted woodpeckers among the oak trees and herons in the lake.
