Sopwell House – St Albans, Hertfordshire
The Home Counties

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Sopwell House is a retreat that feels like a country home from home. Just one mile from the M25/M1 junction and within half an hour of leaving London by train, you could be sipping a carefully crafted cocktail on the terrace, perfectly pampered with ELEMIS or ESPA oils in the fabulous spa, savouring a buffet lunch in the Brasserie or dining on a seasonal dish from the fine dining Restaurant. Sopwell House has a bright and contemporary style, its rooms filled with eclectic artwork, including animal giclée prints by artist Dan Hillier. There’s a tempting choice of rooms and suites to suit all budgets; most spoiling are the gated Mews Suites, set apart from the rest of the hotel in an oasis of beautifully landscaped gardens and with a shared hydropool.
