Awarded the maximum 'Five Bubbles' by the Good Spa Guide, The Vineyard is one of the UK's most elegant retreats. This former hunting lodge woos its guests with boutique-style relaxation facilities that include a luxurious heated pool, a twinkly sauna and steam room, plus a long list of expert therapies.

Located just outside Newbury, an hour from central London, the perfect mix of award-winning food and sumptuous rooms keeps guests coming back for more.

Great food is a real passion at the The Vineyard, with guests returning for the incredible food as much as for a pampering in the spa. It's fitting then that the dining room is at the heart of the building, with a contemporary feel, beautiful design and meticulous attention to detail throughout. Daniel Galmiche, the executive chef, has been recognised for his cuisine with numerous awards, one being the Relais & Chateaux Rising Chef Award.
To make the most of the food, The Vineyard also has a sharp eye (and taste buds) for the perfect wine, with over 30,000 unique wines in the cellar. There is an extensive list of over 50 bottles under £25, proving that fine wine need not always be expensive wine, and a by-the-glass selection that frequently changes to match the seasonal cuisine.
Awarded 'Five Bubbles' by the Good Spa Guide (the ultimate accolade for any retreat), the exclusive facilities at The Vineyard need to be experienced to be fully appreciated. Chic, classy and blissfully free of crowds, they boast a boutique style that's more intimate that some larger health clubs. The main feature is the circular indoor pool that's heated to a soothing temperature and surrounded by sleek glass windows. Around 12 metres in diameter, it's not for swimming lengths in, but just right for gently paddling around in warm comfort.
Other facilities include a sauna (with a twinkly ceiling), a steam room, a small fitness suite here, plus a relaxation area. Indulge in one of the many expert treatments, and should you get the bug for spa therapy, we'd also suggest trying the spa's signature 'grapetherapy', which is inspired by The Vineyard's heritage and impressive wine cellar.
When you're not quaffing The Vineyard's fine food, drinking their velvety wines and sighing blissfully in the spa, you have the excitement of Newbury race course a ten-minute drive down the road and the staggering, Victorian Downton Abbey setting of Highclere Castle the same distance away. If you urge for some hearty country rambling, make a beeline for the beautiful Berkshire Downs - chalk downland hills encompassed by the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a 20-minute drive from the hotel.
Travel is NOT included in this offer.
