Retreat guests will start their day here with vinyasa flow yoga and a pilates class, before tucking into a hearty-plant based lunch.

For the rest of the day guests can unwind at the spa which features a massive outdoor jacuzzi, sauna, indoor pool, reflexology bath, steam room, sleep room and warm stone beds.

A retreat day ends with a two-course dinner and sleep meditation, followed by a woodland walk and enlightening massage the next morning.

If massages aren't your thing, the spa’s vast menu offers glowing facials, sleep-themed treatments and revitalising body scrubs.

What is there to eat and drink at Moddershall Oaks?

You'll have plenty of choice when it comes to dining.

The MADE cafe in the wellness centre is purely plant-based – expect superfood salads loaded with seeds and veggies, acai berry smoothie bowls and a great selection of herbal teas.

The main Oak House restaurant, where retreat guests dine in the evening, offers a varied menu featuring dishes like tempura asparagus, beef roast with all the trimmings and a classic fish and chips.

Inside the spa reception, you'll find a deli that serves homemade cakes, coffee and sandwiches.



What are the rooms like at Moddershall Oaks?

There are just 10 modern bedrooms, each of which comes with a smart TV, fluffy spa robes and sliding doors that open onto a private terrace with views of the garden.

They're named "suites" because each has a small living area with table and sofa.

Unlike day guests, overnight visitors and those booked onto the wellness retreat have the luxury of a 30-minute slot in the private garden jacuzzi – we booked ours at night so we could watch the stars flicker against the dark sky.

How much is Moddershall Oaks?

An overnight wellness retreat starts from £275pp, based on three people sharing a room and including exercise classes, meals, full use of the spa and a 50-minute massage.

Ambience spa breaks cost from £175pp for one night's B&B, full use of the spa and gym, plus a two-course dinner.
