The 70-room hotel, set in over 240 acres of stunning Royal Berkshire parkland is just 45 minutes by car from Mayfair and will be closer to London than other five-star country house hotels. Coworth Park is also a short 20 minutes taxi ride from Heathrow, making it ideal for international one-day business meetings.
Coworth Park will comprise of a beautiful Georgian Manor House where 30 of the bedrooms and suites are located as well as its gastronomic restaurant and bar. A further 40 rooms and suites will be in the adjacent converted stables and cottages along with an informal brasserie-style restaurant with outdoor terrace. Highly acclaimed, Michelin-starred chef, John Campbell has recently been appointed as Director of Cuisine and Food and Beverage at Coworth Park and in his role will oversee catering for conference and banqueting facilities.
Zoe Jenkins, Operations Director for Coworth Park said: “Coworth Park is going to set a new benchmark in the UK for corporate retreats, conferences, weddings and events. The fact that we are so close to London and Heathrow yet hidden away in 240 acres of the most stunning Berkshire countryside is a real draw and we are already seeing tremendous interest in the property for when it opens next Summer.”
