The Retreat is a newly re-imagined 18th-century country house hotel & spa set in magnificent grounds, and located between historic Hungerford and Newbury in the heart of the beautiful West Berkshire countryside. 

Join us for a long weekend of celebrations to mark our official opening and The Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Click for details.

Step into one of our colourful, warm and inviting bedrooms or suites. Antiques mixed with playful textures and art lend soulfulness and unique character to every bedroom.
