Why we choose Coworth Park, Ascot

Coworth Park’s classic-contemporary style and unusual activities have turned country living into an art form

  • The Dower House, is a Grade II listed house with its own garden and swan-filled lake
  • Indulge in haute English fare at the Michelin-starred Restaurant Coworth Park
  • Coworth Park is the only UK hotel to feature 2 professional Polo fields.
  • Indulge in haute English fare at Restaurant Coworth Park

Old, stuffy and boring—three words associated with a country manor that you should get out of your head immediately. Coworth Park is none of those things. Also better than anticipated is the service, which you might expect to be fussy but is actually personalized without being overly formal.

What you need to know about the hotel

This unique Georgian hotel sits in 240 acres of wildflower-filled parkland

  • Whether you’re new to the saddle or an old hand, Coworth Park Equestrian Centre sets a new standard in equestrian recreation
  • A former English national team manager trains you in the sport of kings at Guards Polo Academy at Coworth Park
  • A fine pedigree: Her Majesty the Queen and other members of the Royal Family have visited Coworth Park

Spend some time enjoying the natural beauty of…England? True, “outdoors” and “England” usually lead to thoughts of rain, but the English countryside is a gorgeous destination, and Coworth Park showcases it to best advantage. The hotel has tons of traditional warmth, a slightly irreverent English vibe and thoroughly modern amenities.

We love that no two of the 70 rooms are alike and that you could find yourself in a contemporary space or one with an ornate four-poster bed in the shape of a tree. And then there’s the ultra-private Dower House, outfitted for a visiting royal. Added to the mix is the two-story eco-luxury spa that’s partially submerged in the landscape and the five restaurants and bars, including a top-notch venue that will make you a believer in English cuisine.

We suggest

The relaxed atmosphere is a welcome antidote to the hectic life in London. Stop off here after a few days in the capital and recharge your batteries before you head home.

Where is it and what's nearby

Coworth Park is a tranquil world unto itself, though bustling London is only about 45 minutes away

  • The hotel can arrange for a personal, guided tour of Windsor Castle, which is only 15 minutes away
  • Choose from three golf courses at neighboring Wentworth Club, including the famous West Course, home to the BMW PGA Championship
  • Windsor Great Park is a 5,000-acre space whose highlights include The Valley Gardens—220 acres of botanical gardens

When most people think of England, London is the first thing that comes to mind. But the English countryside is a whole different animal (literally). There’s no better reason to visit southeast England than Coworth Park, a country house hotel set within 240 acres of picturesque parkland that borders Windsor Great Park.

Depending on your mood (and travel companions), you can spend a day at Legoland Windsor or pop over to historic Eton, which is surrounded by antiques shops and galleries. City lovers can head into London as often as they wish with the knowledge that at the end of the day, they can return to a serene hideaway well removed from the urban noise.

How to enjoy Rest of England

The English may not thank you for pointing this out, but their country is pretty small. Take three of their more quaint cities: Winchester, Ascot and Chester. All are within four hours’ drive of each other, with the two southern cities under one hour apart

  • While staying in Ascot, visit nearby Windsor to see if the Queen is home (her standard flies over Windsor Castle if she’s in)
  • Windsor is also home to two of England’s finest restaurants; Michel Roux’s Waterside Inn and Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck – both with three Michelin Stars
  • Explore Chester’s Rows. Medieval walkways dating back to the 13th century, the Rows today are pedestrian lanes of stores and street performers

If there is one thing the Brits do well, it is history. Take Winchester. On the surface it is just another charming cathedral city in the southern county of Hampshire. Pop through a pub door just off the high street, and suddenly you’ll find yourself in one of the oldest bars in England (predating the founding of the USA by several centuries). Check out another doorway and find King Arthur’s Roundtable. It’s a fake, sure, but one made in the late 13th or early 14th century.

Chester in the North West demonstrates a great example of an even older history. It has some of England’s best preserved examples of Roman walls, complete with towers and gates dating back to about 100AD. Ascot, in the southern county of Berkshire is most famous for its elegant horse racecourse. It also enjoys an impressive pedigree with a history dating back to 1711. While there are meets throughout the year, Royal Ascot is the event to see and be seen at.

    When to visit Rest of England

    Visit Winchester in early July to catch the Hat Fair. It is Britain’s longest running festival of street theatre and outdoor arts. Royal Ascot takes place every June. Hats are de rigueur for ladies and gentlemen on Ladies Day.

    Ultimate escape—quintessentially British style.

  • A word from the hotel

    I have been incredibly proud to see the spa win several awards for the quality of the treatments and the beauty of the spa interiors. We have a strong following of regular guests, and it is deeply rewarding to see them benefit from our therapies.
    Ann Costelloe, Spa Manager

  • A word from the hotel

    Despite being so close to the airport and London, it is staggering how relaxing the surroundings are. Our beautiful parkland makes you feel as if you are a million miles from anywhere; you can see guests visibly relax the moment they arrive.
    Brian Hughson, Executive Chef

  • A word from the hotel

    Equestrian at Coworth Park is fantastic for horse-lovers. I remember the day our first thoroughbred arrived, it really encapsulated the high standard we have here. Why not book in an hour’s hack around the estate and see the grounds from another perspective?
    Bonnie Savin, Equestrian at Coworth Park

     

  • A word from the hotel

    I’m always excited to see what kind of flowers appear in our wildflower meadow. The changing weather encourages different flowers, it’s truly captivating.
    Terri Crow, Head of Gardens
