Danesfield House is the epitome of countryside hotel chic: 65 acres of stunning gardens, an award-winning spa, modern Brit cuisine and four-poster beds to wallow in, yet it’s less than an hour from London.

Based in a Grade II-listed, Tudor-style mansion (originally completed in 1901 as a family home), the luxe hotel stands between Marlow and Henley and enjoys stunning views over the River Thames and the Chiltern Hills. Step inside and it’s a box of delights, including The Grand Hall, with a vaulted ceiling resembling an upturned ship, billiards room and 60 individually-designed bedrooms, some with traditional country house fittings (four poster bed, Madam?), others with a more contemporary vibe – all share the same sense of luxe, attention to detail, and sprawling rural outlook.

When it comes to dining, the restaurant consists of three areas: the grandly-designed Oak Room, a glass Orangery, and the sunny terrace. Food is modern British using local, seasonal produce, with vegetarian, vegan and kids’ options, and the lavish Afternoon Tea is a massive hit for special occasions.

The award-winning spa, accessed via a glass walkway from the main building, is a hotel highlight and offers a range of luxurious treatments, from Caudalie and Comfort Zone facials to CBD massages and newly launched, Alchemy by Effect Doctors IV Drips and Dr Sheetal Kaur’s Facial Aesthetics. Guests have full access to all the facilities, including the Matrix gym, heated pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna, plus a wide range of fitness classes, nutritional advice, Osteopathy clinic, and personal trainer.

Events are big here with nine function spaces suitable for a small meeting to a grand affair, from 4 to 110 guests in various layouts and with chefs and events organiser on hand to wave their magic wands. And if you’re looking to get hitched somewhere sensational, the hotel’s available as an exclusive wedding venue – George and Amal Clooney held their UK wedding reception here, and if it’s good enough for the Clooneys, then hey!
