The Hotel

A new chapter for a country classic

The Retreat is a newly re-imaged 18th-century country house hotel and community beacon, set in 16 acres of magnificent grounds, and located between Hungerford and Newbury in the heart of the beautiful West Berkshire countryside.

Joining its riverside cousin, The Mitre at Hampton Court, The Retreat is the second hotel by the acclaimed Signet Collection, and is home to 55 individually-styled bedrooms and suites, two fantastic eating & drinking experiences, Yu; our pan-Asian restaurant and 1772, our relaxed Brasserie.

The Signet Spa is an expansive health club with hydrotherapy pool, heated outdoor pool, treatment rooms, steam & sauna, salt flotation chamber, gym, spin studio, treatments and wellness area.

Within the hotel grounds there is a walled garden, tennis court,  croquet lawns and a children’s zone. ‘The Courtyard’, is a mixed-use retail space consisting of a coffee shop, hair and nail salon, wine cellar, a monthly farmers market and weekly live music.

The Retreat is a place to relax by the log fire, enjoy great food & drink, stay over in stylish and comfortable bedrooms, go for a dip and sink into a comfortable sofa with a glass of something. Careful use of antiques and playful use of textures and art lend soulfulness to give The Retreat its unique country casual character.
