The Luxury Collection has just opened The Langley, its first hotel in the English countryside. Located just outside of London in the heart of Buckinghamshire’s Langley Park, the hotel offers 41 sumptuous bedrooms throughout two buildings - the historic former hunting lodge of the third Duke of Marlborough and the adjacent Grade II-listed 18th century Brew House.
Built between 1756 and 1760, the main Langley Park House is a grand Palladian mansion situated within iconic Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown-designed gardens. The refurbishment has maintained the historic, original features of the building, reflecting the spectacular natural setting of Langley Park. The mansion house is home to The Langley’s most opulent accommodations, including the vast and exclusive Duke of Marlborough Suite, a three-bedroom suite set around a unique octagonal central room, with unparalleled views of the park and its lake. The second floor of the main house offers quirky and cosy rooms with beautiful views through historic round windows.
The Brew House provides refined and comfortable residential rooms and suites, reflecting the building’s storied history. Located adjacent to the Main House, the Brew House has acted as a stable, clock tower and brewery over the centuries. Guests today can see the historic spaces where previous owners concocted their local beers, sensitively restored and showcased as part of the building design.
The hotel spa includes a private VIP suite, vitality pools, hammams, juniper-wood sauna with pink Himalayan salt walls, amethyst steam room and 16-metre marble-lined indoor swimming pool. There are also a number of relaxation spaces – including one designated for women– plus a dedicated manicure and pedicure studio, hair salon, and Spa Lounge, as well as an outdoor swimming pool beside the banks of Langley Lake.
If you're looking to indulge yourself, The Cedar restaurant offers seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients in a relaxed, bright and informal dining atmosphere, while the neighbouring Drawing Room offers afternoon teas and light bites, whilst the Churchill Bar serves cocktails plus a vast collection of cigars and cognacs, and an extensive wrap-around terrace allows for al fresco dining with panoramic lake views.
And when it comes to the big day, the Winter Garden, added to the main house in 1894, has been restored to offer a spectacular space for weddings and events, with a private terrace area and views of the estate and lake beyond. Six further venues offer capacities ranging from six to 120.
There's also a wide array of further facilities and activities for guests to enjoy. Outdoor enthusiasts can borrow wellington boots and set out to explore the wider estate. Clay pigeon shooting, horseback riding, croquet and more are just a few of the country pursuits available. For those who prefer the great indoors, the main house offers a private film screening room for up to six guests, a guest kitchen for cooking classes and a vast array of spa journeys to while away the hours.
