Coworth Park Gains an Addition


Set on a 240-acre estate, 8 miles from Windsor and 9 miles from Heathrow Airport, Coworth Park is both a country retreat within easy reach of central London and a convenient place to spend a relaxing night or two between long-haul flights. The 70-room property, part of the Dorchester Collection, is centered on an 18th-century Georgian country house, and its amenities include a Michelin-starred restaurant, an exceptional spa and extensive equestrian facilities and polo fields. Aside from accommodations in the mansion itself, Coworth offers rooms and suites in converted stables and cottages.

The latest addition to the property is North Lodge, a restored, half-timbered, three-bedroom gatehouse cottage, with its own idyllic garden and a state-of-the-art kitchen. A private chef and a butler are available on request, and cooking master classes can be arranged. Spa therapists can also be summoned to give private treatments. North Lodge would be an ideal base for a family who wanted to enjoy the English countryside or visit nearby attractions such as Windsor Great Park and the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew.
