Danesfield House, Marlow
Muddy says: This exquisite five-star country house hotel is the last word in luxury. Afternoon tea, a luxury overnighter, wedding venue or superlative spa? Please don’t make us go home. Ever.
If it’s good enough for George and Amal Clooney’s wedding party, it’s certainly good enough for us. This exquisite Grade II-listed, late Victorian five star country house hotel is handily located midway between Henley and Marlow, and just a 30 minute whizz from London.
The spa is stunning, the 65 acres of land take in Italian gardens, a croquet lawn and views of the Thames, while the 79 deluxe rooms major on chandeliers, four-poster beds and marble fireplaces. Whether you’re after a luxurious stay; lunch, afternoon tea or dinner in the renowned restaurant; a wedding venue or the chance to loll about in a top spa, Danesfield House has got it all.
