The Three Horseshoes Inn & Country Hotel in Blackshaw Moor, Leek, on the edge of the Staffordshire Peak District, is opening a new spa, The Mill Wheel Spa, in spring 2015.
The Three Horseshoes was granted planning permission in October to build a substantial extension to the premises which would provide a 222 square metre spa facilities, an entrance canopy and five hot tubs outside bedrooms making The Mill Wheel Spa a true destination spa.
Director Steve Kirk says: “The new building is being constructed adjacent to our present building. We have been working on the project since February 2014 and work will be complete March 2015.
“It will be a unique spa with lots of equipment and innovations. These are exciting times for the business and this will also bring in more leisure guests and attract more weddings.
“This will also help with tourism in the Staffordshire Moorlands. We will also be helping local businesses as local contractors have been employed in the construction scheme."
The project has received help from Staffordshire Moorlands MP Karen Bradley, leader of the district council Sybil Ralphs and Stoke-on-Trent City Council.
The MP says: "One of the best things about being an MP is being able to use my connections to benefit constituents and local businesses, and I’m really pleased that I’ve been able to help in this way.
"It’s great news that The Three Horseshoes has been awarded money from the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Growth Fund as it will create jobs and bring tourism to Blackshaw Moor.
“I know that the new spa will be a huge success and I hope to be among the first visitors when it’s complete!"
