Located in Ascot, Coworth Park has a perfect rural setting – acres of parkland drifting off into the distance from a classical Georgian country house – yet it is amazing how close it is to central London, being 45-minutes or so away and only 20-minutes from Heathrow. You really don’t realise your proximity to civilization, yet you feel totally away from it all and can sit back; don your Wellington boots and hop-off exploring.
There are only 70 rooms, with 30 in the main building (Mansion House) and the rest a collection of 40 cottages set within the grounds, offering a great deal of privacy. The interior of Coworth Park was totally redesigned when the hotel was opened in 2011, and as such the rooms offer a contemporary twist, perfectly complimenting its classical Georgian roots. The rooms are all light and airy, using lots of neutral colors, with a dash of wheat and dusky tones. Little details come to the fore, with the use of smoky English oak floorboards, and four-poster beds that reflect the wooded parkland all around. There are many playful nods to the Coworth Park's historical love affair everything horsey (it has polo fields and an equestrian school). Some rooms feature free-standing copper roll-top baths, so after a walk through the countryside there is a perfect welcome waiting for you - throw off your wellies and dive in. There are a range of rooms and suites to suit families, or couples who want a little privacy, and the top suite is a spell-binding private three-bedroom cottage in the grounds.
As you are in the country, it is absolutely worth exploring. Coworth’s equestrian center is second to none, and whether your preference is a lazy horse-ride through the grounds or a one-on-one lesson learning the art of dressage or jumps – Coworth Park will provide it. Coworth has also been known for its polo – and a range of fixtures are on offer from April to September. If you want to do more than watch, you can of course learn from one of the best, Andrew Hine, who has captained and managed the English Polo Team and runs the Polo Academy at Coworth.
If you prefer to stay on two-legs, Windsor Great Park and Virginia Water are around the corner and you can explore either on foot or by bicycle. A walk around this little patch of rural Berkshire will reward you with the chance to see that picture-perfect, quintessential English countryside – maybe stop off for lunch at the local pub, the Belvedere Arms for instance. Windsor Castle is nearby, and you can even visit London for the day and return to the peace and quiet of Coworth Park at night. Other activities can include archery, laser clays, falconry and tennis. If you like your golf, then Wentworth and Sunningdale are both only 5 minutes away - both considered some of England's best courses.
Hopefully delighted from your day in the country, why not retreat to Coworth Park’s eco-spa, with eight treatment rooms and a massive swimming pool which even offers underwater music. There is also a gym, salon, relaxation room and the Spattisserie offering light meals, tea and champagne.
The food at Coworth is second to none. The Restaurant Coworth Park showcases a modern outlook on classic British fare, whilst the Barn has a relaxed atmosphere and features plain wooden tables and stone flooring (so you can even walk in with muddy boots from your walk). We love the outdoor terrace where you can sip the odd cocktail or two before tucking into your evening meal. Naturally Afternoon Tea is available (do try the Eccles Cake) and they offer superb country breakfasts.
The staff are wonderful at Coworth Park, with a great ‘can do’ attitude and seem to pre-empt your every wish and desire. Kitted out in country tweed – they seem helplessly English, but we really rather like that in many ways.
If you are traveling as a family, then your children are in for a treat. With the equestrian center – young, budding riders will simply thank you forever. With the great range of other activities on offer, there can never be a dull moment from mountain biking, treasure hunts, basketball, tennis and croquet. There is a kids club for children aged 2-8 and also a teen den filled with the latest Wii or Xbox games. There are a whole range of activities on offer from air-hockey competitions to face-painting.
Coworth Park has 70 rooms all coming with Mitchell and Peach bath amenities, tea and Nespresso coffee making machines, Bang and Olufsen television with Blu Ray DVD player, a connectivity panel with USB, laptop, iPod, UK, US & EU plug sockets & powered safes.
Coworth Park's ample grounds make it an ideal retreat for children. There is a kids' club for the children aged 2-8, and a teen den exclusively for children 8 years old and above, complete films, computer games and it also offers outdoor activities like treasure hunts, mountain biking, horse riding, football, basketball, tennis and croquet, while supervised children can also enjoy the indoor pool. There are specific child-friendly menu options like pizza or burgers.

When to go
It is very difficult to predict the weather in the United Kingdom - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but the UK does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.
