The Retreat at Elcot Park is the perfect blend of quirky British sensibility and elegant authentic luxury; old and new; the refined and the comfortable, the local and the worldly. 

 

The Retreat at Elcot Park is a beautifully re-imagined Georgian Country House Hotel & Spa, located between Newbury and Hungerford, at the heart of the North Wessex Downs – a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. With sixteen acres of stunning grounds, rolling countryside and endless local attractions, it’s the perfect base for an idyllic escape to the English countryside.

 

Since opening in June 2022, The Retreat has become a vibrant local hub and destination of choice for tourists and businesses from all over the world, and was recently named as Britain's Best Hotel by The Times and the Sunday Times, topping their list of the Top 100 Places to Stay in the UK.
