The Vineyard – Newbury, Berkshire

By CTH Editors

1 year ago

One man’s passion created this hotel. The man? Sir Peter Michael. His passion – wine. Celebrating the historic landmark of 25 years this year, The Vineyard in Stockcross is a spectacular wine destination, and a foodie one too. The Vineyard is not what you would expect from a luxury five-star hotel – it’s relaxed, informal and contemporary, with a team that have individual personalities that shine through. Drawing on its incredible cellar of more than 30,000 bottles, the restaurant’s outstanding wine list is guaranteed to keep you busy, while the incredible creations from executive chef Tom Scade and his new five-course tasting menu will literally blow you away. Ever evolving, The Vineyard’s spa has recently collaborated with Irene Forte Skincare, a brand that prides itself on its sustainable ethos and zero waste products. An avid art collector, Sir Peter has filled the hotel with paintings and sculpture, both in the plush public rooms and 49 bedrooms, each named after an iconic wine. The Grand Suites are the epitome of luxury and there are rooms in the house for furry friends, too. It’s only an hour from London… but a million miles from ordinary.
