Danesfield House Hotel and Spa gardens

About

As you approach the tree-lined drive that winds beneath the striking Clock Tower, you’ll be in awe of this immense setting. The gleaming, whitewashed exterior of Danesfield House sits overlooking the River Thames between Henley and Marlow and the Chiltern Hills beyond, amongst 65 acres of the most impressive landscaped gardens. Purple wisteria climbs the walls of the building while the wonderful scent of lavender wafts among the grounds. Pretty fountains and waterfalls make Danesfield Gardens so quintessentially English while the Italian Garden adds a touch of the Mediterranean.

Book here for Danesfield House Hotel and Spa's best available rates.

Brimming with history, Danesfield House was once home to the Intelligence Section of the RAF. In 1901 the house was re-built as a family home for Robert William Hudson, and in 1991, it first opened its doors as a hotel.

There are 49 stunning rooms and suites to choose from, some with four poster beds or freestanding baths, and some with their own balcony and views across the Thames. There’s a welcome mix of both traditional country house style rooms and more contemporary design to choose from. Huge windows capture the mesmerising scenery and luxurious furnishings dress the rooms beautifully.

Before taking dinner in The Restaurant, soak up your surroundings and suppress pre-dinner hunger pains with a drink in the chandelier-clad Grand Hall with minstrels’ gallery, the sun-lit atrium or comfortable cocktail bar. Sublime modern British cuisine can be enjoyed in either The Restaurant, or in the warmer months, The Terrace with its stunning views of the Thames and surrounding countryside.

Step into a wonderful world of relaxation at Spa Illuminata Danesfield House, where you’ll find all the facilities you need and a full list of treatments to keep you occupied for several hours. If the gym, indoor pool, Jacuzzi, poolside steam room and sauna aren’t enough, the VIP Double Treatment Suite, Nail Bar and Pedicure Suite are sure to tempt you into some indulgent pampering.
