Escape to the Berkshire countryside for a decadent weekend break perfect for food lovers. Wasing Park's newly opened boutique hotel is set in the heart of a 4,000-acre estate featuring parkland, woodlands and lakes. Guests can enjoy the 'estate to plate' specials from the à la carte menu, a six-course tasting menu and the chance to join the chef and cook lunch outdoors in Wasing's majestic woodlands.
But food is not the only thing on the menu at Wasing. Guests are invited to get out into the fresh air to enjoy walking trails through the woods, across the parkland and around the lakes on foot, or by bike before relaxing by the fireside in the Stables Bar. Stay for the weekend in one of Wasing's 26 rooms, including the stunning grade II listed Old Estate Rooms – The Granary sat atop staddle stones, The Smithy, a former blacksmith's shop now a large beautiful boutique bedroom, or The Dovecote, a very unique, cylindrical two-story building featuring a free-standing copper bath.
As well as endless wonderous walks across the estate, wellness is high on the agenda at Wasing and the estate is the perfect location to really unwind both your mind and body. There is a yoga studio onsite and the estate's own wellness coach also offers Forest Bathing and other mindful activities. Wasing's brigade of chefs are highly trained and experienced in creating delicious fine food – look out for the 'estate to plate' specials available alongside the al a carte menu. Guests can also experience the six-course tasting menu (served alongside optional pairing wines) on Saturday nights.
If you have room between the hearty breakfast and dinner, why not try your hand at cooking your own woodfired pizza or firepit-flamed venison burger under the guidance of Wasing's chef, at the very special Woodlands venue at lunchtime? Plus, complimentary tea and homemade cake will be served at 4pm.
