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 Hertfordshire

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.

Doubles from £154



The stunning St Albans Cathedral or take a stroll around Verulamium Park.


One of their wonderful homemade Afternoon Teas complete with a glass of Champagne.


Some luxurious spa products from ESPA, ELEMIS or Aromatherapy Associates from the spa.


Sopwell House was leased to Prince Louis of Battenberg in 1900, whose daughter married Prince Andrew of Greece; their son is Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
