Stoke Park Country Club Hotel & Spa

Stoke Park is a magnificent Country Club retreat in Buckinghamshire only 35 minutes from London by car. Set within 300 acres of immaculate parkland, historic gardens, lakes and monuments, this Grade 1 listed palladian mansion was founded in 1908 as the first Country Club in Britain although the estate has over 1,000 years of history. Stoke Park prides itself on family heritage and is currently only one of a few independently family owned and operated UK resorts.

Stepping into the mansion, the interiors exude history, from the grand décor, majestic paintings, stately mirrors, stained glass windows to traditional fireplaces. The luxurious rooms create a rich, opulent look whilst imparting a cosy, warm feeling.

Stoke Park is the perfect place to come to appreciate life’s luxuries of serenity and gratification. The finest facilities for tennis, golf, fitness and spa are all available at this resort. The welcoming staff are knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the estate, which makes a stay here even more inviting.

Celebrating 100 years of the Club’s history a book was published chronicling the whole estate's history - Stoke Park - The First 1,000 Years - written by Peter Pugh.

Rooms

 

The Mansion has 21 luxurious bedrooms including 5 suites. Each room is distinct and is furnished with fine art, antiques, rich soft furnishings, large beds and open fire places. Modern luxuries such as Ipod docks and HD TVs are also provided.  All the rooms have spectacular views of the estate, with some having terraces and a view of Windsor Castle. A unique quirk within the Mansion is that every room is named after a historical connection to the estate as opposed to having mundane numbers, this gives a personal touch and association to the estate. Anomalous London stayed in the ‘William and Mary’ junior suite which overlooks the first tee and practice putting green.

Dining

 

Humphry’s, is the fine dining restaurant, headed by the talented Chef Chris Wheeler. It has been awarded 3 AA Rosettes and is renowned in the Buckinghamshire area as one of the finest. Fresh, local ingredients are used to create a seasonal menu, with options for A La carte, set or a gastronomic tasting menu.  The pan-fried seabass, one of Chris’s signature dishes is amazingly crisp and flavoursome a must try.

 

Afternoon Tea

A time honoured tradition, afternoon tea is served in the impressive Orangery with views overlooking the golf course and iconic Repton Bridge. In the summer time there is plenty of seating on the lawn outside.

 

Golf

A 27-hole Championship golf course designed by the famous golf course architect, Harry Colt, in 1909, is still recognised world -wide as the finest in the country. The course is also notorious for the epic golfing duel in the James Bond 1964 classic 007 Goldfinger.  

 

Tennis

Stoke Park has 13 multi surface courts so tennis fans are spoilt for choice. 6 Wimbeldon specification grass courts, 3 indoor and 4 all weather. The Club is renowned for The Boodles tournament which has been held for the past 12 years, prior to Wimbeldon and attended by the top players. An intimate setting due to limited seating, it is a great opportunity to see the elite close up in action. 

 

Spa

Amazing sunlight beams through the floor-to-ceiling windows into the indoor pool which has a built in Jacuzzi! The award winning spa also has Italian marble steam rooms and showers. An impressive place to unwind and relax. Read the full review here.
