Travel Tips: The Dorchester Collection’s Coworth Park

The Dorchester Collection’s Coworth Park is a luxurious English country house you won’t want to leave.

This is the striking  English luxury country house you won’t want to leave.

This luxurious, sprawling British country estate is the perfect place to escape the pace of London for a few days and relax.

Located in Ascot, just 40 minutes from London, the whole place has a luxe country, horsey vibe, but make no mistake, this is designer lodging at its best.

The accommodation wing we stayed in is in former stables luxuriously renovated with huge bathrooms, gorgeous windows allowing in plenty of light, and luxe fittings.

Rooms are also spacious with beautiful furnishings in fresh white tones and the designs  include gorgeous windows overlooking the gardens which open for fresh air,  well designed cupboards where excess horse gear can be stored away, and huge comfortable beds.

To my daughter’s delight, we indulged in room service one night, and the food arrived on gorgeous temporary picnic style tables, and was beautifully presented. The rooms have an amazing room service menu which features the most popular menu items from Dorchester properties all over the world, which is a real treat for regular Dorchester guests.

Buggies ferry guests around the property, and the manor house where guests check in has a beautiful dining room for breakfast, and open fires where a pre or post-dinner drink or even a casual lunch or dunner can be enjoyed. I loved this communal area, where a pianist entertained guests one night of our stay.

The whole venue is full of modern, creative artworks with a horse theme which is impressive. There is even a light fitting made of the word LOVE. How can anyone not love this beautiful, sumptuous, indulgent piece of England?

There is an expansive stand alone spa with exceptional therapists, with every treatment imaginable from manicures to massages.

There is an 18m long pool where music is played under water! A large steam room is very welcome in winter, and the gym is small but sufficient,  has huge windows, and the latest equipment. Personal trainers are also available on site at an extra cost.

As if all of that isn’t enough, there is a full equestrian centre including polo club and polo fields where you can hire horses to ride, groom horses and explore the magnificent property on horse back. There’s something about riding horses in England that feels so regal. Everyone at every level and ability is catered for.

There are also mountain bikes, another glorious way to squeeze in some fitness whilst having a ball exploring in your own time. My 10 year old daughter loved these.

There are two restaurants, both serving exceptional cuisine and in sumptuous settings. It’s difficult to choose.

The Barn is more casual and has a range of British fare from venison to steaks and seafood, all served in a story book setting – an old barn framed with trees, paths and a bridge. It’s so very romantic and pretty.

Chef Adam Smith from Restaurant Coworth Park has just been awarded a Michelin Star for his delicate but delicious offerings which guests rave about. Im not surprised.

This is the kind of place to sleep in, indulge in style and relax. You need at least 2 nights, and take someone you love. It’s very special.

 Renae  Says:

Who should Stay here: Couples, girls on a girls weekend, mothers and daughters.

Who shouldn’t Stay here: Anyone wanting to party. It’s not that kind of place.

Location: Ascot, 40 minutes from London, easily accessible by train.

Best culinary delight: Dinner at The Barn.

The Highlight: Champagne or tea in the Manor House of an afternoon.

The lowlight: Checking out. I wanted to stay a lot longer than two nights.
