Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire – Dogmersfield, Hampshire
It’s hard to believe you are only an hour from London at the Four Seasons’ only UK country hotel. Set amid 500 acres of luscious green fields, you can watch the hotel’s horses frolicking in paddocks from the gorgeous, coolly sophisticated bedrooms (including a beautiful new Martin Brudnizki-designed Royal Suite). It’s easy to lose yourself in the grounds, playing croquet, clay-pigeon shooting, fishing or canal boating, while children can be kept busy at the Kids’ Club, or even with an ‘own a pony’ experience. A large, light-filled spa occupies the original stable block, from which a glass-encased 20-metre pool extends. They recently expanded their wellness offering too, adding spiritual yoga sessions, healthy menus and new massage therapies into the mix. Service is exemplary, and the cuisine is everything you would expect from Four Seasons. Wild Carrot, the new restaurant and bar launched in 2019, makes the perfect setting for memorable meals and has been an instant hit. For tea made with honey from the hotel’s own bees, head for the library. Sunday lunch is a highlight, an interactive Farmers’ Market feast featuring entirely local produce. Go on, treat yourself.
Explore the beautiful English countryside with a walk, cycle or ride through the grounds of the Dogmersfield Park Estate.
Enjoy lunch at the new Wild Carrot Restaurant, named after the dainty white wildflower that grows plentifully in the fields of Dogmersfield Park, and enjoy delicious British classics with a contemporary twist, made with the finest seasonal produce found in Hampshire markets and further afield.
Treat yourself or a loved one to a luxurious Hampshire Spa day; with a choice of therapies, a two-course lunch and full use of the Spa facilities, including the conservatory-style swimming pool and outdoor vitality pool.
