The Retreat Elcot Park

Elegant countryside sanctuary.

Tucked away on 16 acres of land in a renovated 18th-century brick home that once belonged to the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Retreat Elcot Park is a boutique property located between the historic English towns of Hungerford and Newbury in the heart of the rolling West Berkshire countryside.

Insider Tip

The Percy Shelley Suite features a separate living room, as well as a roll-top bath and stunning views of the surrounding parkland.

Where You’re Staying

The hotel is meant to feel like a friend’s country retreat, from the rack of Wellington boots by the door to the elegant clawfoot tubs. The design combines the old and new in a sophisticated and relaxed way. 55 rooms are decorated in colorful shades of turquoise, rust, and green and feature antiques and bold patterns. Bathrooms have classic silhouettes and bright tiles.

Where to Dine

The 1772 Brasserie, named for the year the house was built, is an all-day restaurant focusing on elevated classics. Yu is a Pan-Asian restaurant serving sushi as well as grilled meats and fish.

Where to Relax

Squeeze in a workout at the gym, or relax by the outdoor swimming pool. Head to the Signet Spa for a pampering massage, facial, or couples’ treatment. The spa is also home to a hydrotherapy pool, sauna, and steam room.

What To Do

The hotel offers a wide variety of activities, from family events to wine tastings and live music. Beyond the hotel, it’s a short drive to Highclere Castle and Blenheim Palace. North Wessex Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is also nearby.
