Four centuries of history meet contemporary British luxury
Great Fosters is a little like stepping into a period film set. Surrounded by 50 acres of stunningly landscaped gardens, England’s green and pleasant scenery greets you from the moment you arrive. And with a guest list that includes Orson Welles and Charlie Chaplin, the hotel’s 400-year history is as rich as its delicately tended grounds.
The main house carries all the hallmarks of contemporary comfort, while retaining its unique heritage. Choose from individually styled bedrooms, each designed with indulgence in mind. If you’ve got your sights set on a four-poster bed, Great Fosters fits the bill. Or, for a truly romantic escape, check into The Italian Room, complete with damask-draped walls and gilt trimmings – plus an oversized bathtub for dive-right-in pampering.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
From picturesque summer picnics and tennis to crisp winter walks around the Great Fosters estate, you can fill your stay with as much – or as little – activity as you like. Take a dip in the heated outdoor pool or enjoy one of the year-round events and experiences put on by the hotel. Dine in the Michelin-starred restaurant or take afternoon tea on the terrace overlooking the gardens. Be sure to try the hotel's very own Great Fosters' Gin, excellent in a Martini, or their honey which you will find served at breakfast and featuring in the menu. And if you fancy, you can up the period drama with traditional sports – croquet perhaps?
Enjoy your stay!
