Prepare for an elegant and cosy Christmas staycation escape to Coworth Park, with an English country Christmas like no other. Less than an hour from London, this country house hotel and spa is nestled next to Windsor Great Park and will be celebrating the holidays with a three-night stay, dining events, games, and festivities to get the whole family into the spirit of the season.
The Christmas Staycation plan
Arrive for your Christmas staycation on Christmas Eve and prepare to unwind, welcomed with Festive Champagne Afternoon Tea in the Drawing Room accompanied by a choir singing carols, followed by children’s story time in the Oak Room and Christmas card-making or family board games in the Garden Room. After a three-course dinner overseen by executive chef Adam Smith at Restaurant Coworth Park or The Barn, you can then attend Holy Trinity Sunningdale for those wishing to enjoy midnight service.
On Christmas Day, Father Christmas will visit right after breakfast and just before Champagne leading to a four-course lunch at The Barn or a five-course lunch at Restaurant Coworth. This is followed by Her Majesty the Queen’s speech in the Garden Room and then to the Manson House for a buffet style dinner and live entertainment.
The festive fun continues on Boxing Day with a leisurely brunch and activities including assorted country pursuits, with cream tea served in the Drawing Room accompanied by a harpist. A three-course dinner will be served at Restaurant Coworth Park or in The Barn.
New Year’s Eve 2021
Champagne afternoon tea begins a two night celebration at Coworth Park on New Year’s Eve. The party starts with a four-course dinner at The Barn or five-course dinner at Restaurant Coworth Park ahead of live entertainment until the early hours. At midnight a fireworks display will light up the Coworth Park grounds as you raise a Champagne toast to 2022.
North Lodge is Coworth Park’s gatehouse located a short buggy ride away on the outskirts of the grounds and with full access to the rest of the estate. This is your very own three spacious bedroom house with dreamy driveway, lobby, dining room and kitchen where you can or have a dedicated chef to cater for you. This is a real home from home with a manicured garden (with winter firepit) and not forgetting the Coworth Park signature roll-top copper bath.
The design inspiration of the 2226 sq ft North Lodge was taken from modern day family run private English country estate properties. The design approach is one of incredible comfort, simple beauty but attention to detail, creating a relaxed and informal environment that encourages relaxation. Furnishings, furniture and art are British-made, acknowledging a British tradition of craftsmanship with a nod to the hotel’s world renowned links to equestrian and polo.
The highlight of North Lodge is the open plan kitchen and dining room with space for up to 10 to enjoy a Christmas staycation dinner together. The kitchen is fully equipped with top of the range appliances from premium brand, Miele. Everything is thought of from a full surface induction hob with Teppan Yaki plate to a steam oven and Sous Vide unit to enable you to conjure up a delicious festive feast. Other state of the art appliances include a Miele fridge freezer with ice maker, a wine conditioner and a built-in coffee machine. North Lodge at Coworth Park is available to book for up to six people.
