An English Town and Country Getaway at The Dorchester and Coworth Park

July 15, 2011
By: Mary Winston Nicklin

The Dorchester, LondonOn your next voyage to England, why not combine the best of the town and country? Stay in style with The Dorchester Collection at both Coworth Park, the new country house hotel in Ascot, and London's legendary icon, The Dorchester. The luxury hotel group has just launched a package that combines the best of both worlds. While reveling in the country life at Coworth Park, play croquet on the lawn; bask in eco-luxury at the Spa at Coworth Park (where herbs for the treatments grow on the Living Roof!); set off on horseback from the Equestrian Center to explore the 240 acres of Berkshire parkland. You could paint the town red in London, or sequester yourself inside The Dorchester's basion of luxury- supping on Michelin-starred cuisine and relaxing in the glamorous Art Deco-style spa.

The "Town & Country" experience includes one night bed and breakfast at both The Dorchester and Coworth Park, as well as the transfer in between and the opportunity to take advantage of the Concierge at each hotel to recommend a customized itinerary. Rates start from £890 (approximately $1,400 USD) exclusive of VAT for a superior room based on double occupancy and for two consecutive nights including full English breakfast. Offer is valid July 24 until September 4, 2011.


Polo Fields and Spa Treatments by Dr. Alkaitis: Coworth Park Debuts Today in the UK

Coworth ParkWe've been waiting with bated breath and now the moment's arrived: Coworth Park opened its doors today on the border of Windsor Great Park in the English countryside. Just 45 minutes from central London, the 70-room estate is the first luxury country house hotel from the Dorchester Collection. We can barely contain our excitement about the luxe offerings: three restaurants overseen by Michelin-starred Chef John Campbell; a contemporary design that enhances the Georgian charm of the original Coworth Park's manor house; an equestrian center; sunken gardens and polo fields; a carbon neutral spa that's the first in the world to offer treatments by Dr. Alkaitis, renowned for his 100% organic, paraben free ingredients. This is the year to celebrate the yuletide season in Merry Ole England!


Hot Hotel Openings of the Year: Coworth Park from the Dorchester Collection

Coworth Park, EnglandHow's this for a teaser? Sure got us excited for the launch of The Dorchester Collection's luxurious country retreat. "You'll know your 'peg out' from your 'double tap.' You'll be comfortable dining under (and alongside) the stars. You'll know which single malt to sip, which New World white to quaff. You'll be ready to leave the past behind and make your mark on the future. You'll be ready for a country house hotel quite unlike any other. Welcome to Coworth Park."

 

 

Coworth Park-- "the country house hotel that rewrites the rules"-- will be opening this summer in the English countryside, just 40 minutes from central London. The setting? 237 acres of parkland bordering Great Windsor Park-- near Ascot and the golf clubs at Wentworth and Sunningdale. What's in store? A carbon-neutral spa, for starters. One of the first of its kind in the UK, the eco-spa was built unobtrusively into the landscape with a roof covered in herbs, later plucked for use in spa treatments. Outdoor pursuits run the gamut from archery to tennis. There's even an equestrian center and pro polo fields.

Buzz: New Luxury Hotels from the Dorchester Collection in England

Surrey farmlandWe can hardly wait for two new hotel openings from the Dorchester Collection in England next year. Slated for the summer, Coworth Park will be a country house hotel and equestrian center on 200 acres of Surrey parkland near Ascot-- just 40 minutes from central London. Polo fields, archery, pitch-and-put golf, an eco-luxury spa... But most exciting of all: Coworth Park will be one of the most environmentally-friendly properties in the UK, utilizing zero-carbon technologies. Rainwater and surface water will be recycled, and a kitchen garden will provide organic veggies for the table. The goal is to embrace all the latest, cutting-edge technology to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by at least 50 percent. The other addition to the Dorchester portfolio will be in London. Long vacant, 45 Park Lane will be getting a makeover from its er- unseemly former life as the London Playboy Club. The construction project requires major modifications incorporating eco-friendly technology.
