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

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. 

Bedrooms & Suites

The Retreat experience is all about enjoying exceptional food and drink. We have two stunning restaurants, 1772 our relaxed brasserie and Yu, our Pan-Asian fine dining restaurant. Afternoon tea and brunch is served in our Orangery and we also have a number of fabulous spaces for private parties and social celebrations.

Both restaurants welcome locals as well as hotel guests.
