Dorchester Collection’s Michelin starred country house hotel and spa, Coworth Park has introduced a new three-bedroom private stand-alone gatehouse cottage.
North Lodge at Coworth Park has a private driveway, three spacious bedrooms, lobby, dining room and kitchen where guests can cook for themselves or have a dedicated chef to cater for them.
The latest addition to Coworth Park’s 22 suites, North Lodge is Coworth Park’s gatehouse located on the outskirts of the grounds, with full access to the rest of the estate. Guests can make use of their own private garden with an outdoor dining area, to enjoy a summer barbeque or alfresco evenings. North Lodge has been carefully restored and designed to capture the hotel’s charm and residential origins while introducing artwork by local artists to create a stylish but cosy English country escape. The interiors echo the changing seasons of Coworth Park, with charming antiques sourced from the local villages and neighbouring Windsor.
The design of the 206.8 square-metre North Lodge is in keeping with Dorchester Collection’s vision for Coworth Park to create the finest country house hotel and spa in the UK, yet avoids the predictable country house clichés. Inspiration was taken from modern-day family-run private English country estate properties.
Furnishings, furniture and art are British-made, acknowledging a British tradition of craftsmanship with a nod to the hotel’s world renowned links to equestrian and polo.
The master bedroom is a large airy suite with a super king-sized bed, high ceilings and dual aspect views of the meadow and the private garden. An en-suite bathroom features a signature Coworth Park copper bathtub, double vanity, and a large walk-in shower. The Turret room features a king-sized bed, a walk-in dressing area and en-suite bathroom with signature copper bathtub. A further double room, known as the Snug, has views across the wildflower meadow and a family bathroom adjacent to it.
The highlight of North Lodge is the open plan kitchen and dining room with space for up to 10 guests to enjoy dining together. The kitchen is fully equipped with top of the range appliances from premium brand, Miele.
Everything is thought of from a full surface induction hob with Teppan Yaki plate to a steam oven and Sous Vide unit to enable guests, who are keen cooks, to conjure up a delicious feast. Alternatively, guests can take advantage of the dedicated chef who, on request, can prepare the same Coworth Park restaurant-quality food within North Lodge. The chef can also host an impromptu private masterclass for the whole family around the dining table or kitchen island.
The French doors open out from the kitchen dining room onto the private garden, featuring a deck for al fresco dining on sunny days. There is also a tranquil sitting room with an original open wood-burning stove, the ideal place in which to while away wintry afternoons.
North Lodge at Coworth Park is available to book for up to six guests, with rates starting at £3,500 inc VAT per night, based on a minimum five night stay. Guests staying at North Lodge have full access to The Spa at Coworth Park, Equestrian Centre and a choice of various dining facilities on the estate.
