London, England – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Guests can now combine a stay at both Dorchester Collection ‘s iconic London hotel, The Dorchester, and its new country house hotel and spa in Ascot, Coworth Park, for the ultimate English city and country experience with the new “Town & Country” offering. This includes one night bed and breakfast at both The Dorchester and Coworth Park, set in 240 acres of Berkshire parkland, as well as the transfer in between and the opportunity to take advantage of the Concierge at each hotel to recommend a customized itinerary. Whether visitors seek the chance to enjoy London’s vibrant cultural scene, an exclusive culinary experience or simply indulge in a relaxing spa treatment or opt for a more active visit with horse riding, golf and polo, there is a wealth of diverse opportunities at the sister hotels.

Culinary Suggestions The Dorchester offers the UK’s only three Michelin-star hotel restaurant with Alain Ducasse, the Krug room with Executive Chef Henry Brosi as London’s original chef’s table, traditional British menus at The Grill, cocktail master classes with legendary Bar Manager Guiliano Morandin and celeb-favorite authentic Cantonese fare at China Tang. Gourmands can also enjoy The Promenade’s award-winning Afternoon Tea, alongside a calendar of fashion teas, children’s teas and social calendar teas such as the December’s Festive Afternoon Tea with Christmas carols and mince pies. In the countryside, Coworth Park offers fine dining in John Campbell at Coworth Park in the Mansion House and a separate more informal restaurant called The Barn with an outdoor terrace. Bespoke culinary experiences are available and children can enjoy activities such as teddy bear picnics or wild life tea parties as part of the “Coworth Park Kids” program.

Spa Suggestions Setting the benchmark as London’s most luxurious destination spa, The Dorchester Spa exudes 1930’s inspired art deco glamour. There are nine treatment rooms, including two double suites, a vibrant mani/pedi suite, serene relaxation room and the uniquely named “Spatisserie” where guests can dine during their pamper experience. Renowned for its signature facials, spa enthusiasts can enjoy a special collection of treatments grouped with specific needs in mind, such as first time mothers, high flying execs and parties of friends. Coworth Park boasts an exclusive eco-luxury Spa at Coworth Park, built over two floors with eight treatment rooms, its own Spatisserie promoting eating for healthy living, indoor pool, gym and Living Roof of plants and herbs such as chamomile, lavender and thyme. The 240 acre grounds provide the perfect setting for relaxing meditation walks and renewal programs.

Equestrian Suggestions Horse-riding can be enjoyed in both town and country locations. The Dorchester overlooks London’s glorious Hyde Park where horse-riding is offered all year round. Coworth Park is home to its own equestrian center stabling up to 40 horses.

Local activities London enjoys a reputation as an international center of culture, boasting one of the world’s greatest theater, music and dance scenes. Visitors can enjoy concerts in The Royal Albert Hall, ballet and opera at The Royal Opera House and a diverse theater program in the West End. A constant calendar of sporting events features the Boat Race and The Ashes, and established events such as the Chelsea Flower Show, Open House London and Regent Park’s Taste Festival are held throughout the year. Art lovers can head to renowned galleries such as the Tate and the National Portrait Gallery. Just 45 minutes away in rural Berkshire, the local attractions are just as rich and varied around Coworth Park. Half a mile down the road, there is the Wentworth Club, while there is the River Thames for kayaking, and to the world’s most famous racecourse at Ascot, just a short distance away. Less strenuous outdoor activities include croquet on the lawn at Coworth Park or a stroll through Windsor Great Park. Children are easily entertained at local attractions such as Legoland.
