// LUX­URY RE­SORT Sta­ple­ford Park, Le­ices­ter­shire

Golf World (UK) - - PLAY - www.sta­ple­ford­park.com

On the list of plea­sures await­ing guests at Sta­ple­ford Park, one key thing is not men­tioned. The spa and leisure op­tions are clearly listed, along­side archery, fal­conry, fine din­ing, lux­u­ri­ous suites and, of course, Don­ald Steel’s cham­pi­onship golf course. But what Sta­ple­ford Park fails to men­tion is the one thing you’re guar­an­teed when you turn off the coun­try lanes and drive through a small for­est of trees to the grand old coun­try house – soli­tude. The type of peace and quiet you’d think money can’t buy in this day and age. Only it turns out you can. A few hours here will recharge even the low­est bat­tery, par­tic­u­larly if you fac­tor in 18 holes. Other peo­ple will be play­ing the same course at the same time, but it’s so spa­cious and clev­erly routed, you may never see an­other soul. It’s the an­ti­dote to mod­ern life. Just don’t go shout­ing about it.
