Every property in the Iconic Luxury Hotels collection has its own story, its own traditions and its own character.
As well as all being quintessentially British, each has something special that marks it out as unique and it’s this individuality that is the hallmark of the collection. Staying at an Iconic Luxury Hotel is an experience you’ll never forget: service as personal as it’s discreet; food that strives for culinary perfection, served in a welcoming, comfortable environment; and rooms which, though undoubtedly grand, make you feel like you’re staying with friends.
Cliveden House, just 40 minutes from London, is a sublime escape from the city.
Voted ‘Favourite UK Holiday Hotel’ in the Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards 2017, this five-star National Trust property sits in 376 acres of magnificent Grade I-listed formal gardens and woodlands. Cliveden recently unveiled a glorious new spa, but for those looking to explore, there’s the option of a leisurely boat trip along the Thames, followed by afternoon tea in the main house. For a special dinner, the award-winning André Garrett Restaurant offers a menu of divine dishes, while The Astor Grill is perfect for a relaxed lunch with friends and family.
Chewton Glen, 90 minutes from London and a stone’s throw from the south coast, on the edge of the glorious New Forest National Park, is a true English original, offering all things to all people. From the 72 bedrooms, including 13 romantic treehouses, to the award-winning spa, leisure facilities and state-of-the-art James Martin cookery school, you’ll find a huge variety of ways to revive the senses. The 130 acres of woodland, gardens and parkland meanwhile are home to a tennis centre, nine-hole golf course, heritage orchard, 70 working bee hives, walled
kitchen garden and croquet lawn.
The Lygon Arms is a charming old coaching inn that sits in the heart of Broadway village – often called ‘the jewel of the Cotswolds’ – and boasts a rich history, coloured by the many characters who have stayed there, from Oliver Cromwell to Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
This Cotswolds bolthole offers a range of dining experiences, from Eggs Benedict brunches and late-night drinks at the Lygon Wine Bar to a seasonal British menu in the Lygon Bar & Grill. There’s a new spa tucked away in a tranquil corner of the hotel, but to unwind in the fresh air, pull on your wellies and explore those beautiful rolling hills. 11 Cadogan Gardens is a boutique hotel that is the city cousin within the iconic collection and a British heritage property. Overlooking a quiet street behind Sloane Square in Chelsea, it’s the perfect London base for a shopping trip, romantic weekend away or a city break. Comprised of four townhouses, the hotel is an intriguing maze of corridors and staircases, with interiors that are as dramatic as they are elegant. Enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea in the lounge or treat yourself
to a delicious cocktail in the bar or on the outdoor terrace.
