Where? Penny Hill Park Spa and Hotel

Exactly? Ascot, only one hour from London

Why? I was very lucky to be invited on a luxury weekend break to the newly refurbished Penny Hill Park Spa and Hotel. Known for its celebrity clientele and being the training grounds for the England Rugby squad, all that plus a day of pampering and dinner at The Latymer Restaurant and my bags were packed already!

From being the residence of Queen Victoria’s favourite son, Prince Arthur, to its present day use as a luxury hotel and spa, 9 hole golf course and England Rugby training facility, this hotel’s hallowed doors have seen some of the countries most eminent aristocrats to sporting royalty come through it.

It features an indoor pool, outdoor pool, several hot tubs and jacuzzis, full spa circuit with steam rooms and saunas, a flood lit tennis court, 2 award winning restaurants, a 9 hole golf course and a rugby pitch. Perfect for the players to nip into the treatment rooms post training and get some sports massages. And no I didn’t bump into any of them on this trip!

Matt Worswick at The Latymer Restaurant

“Taking the best ingredients through complicated processes” is how celebrity TV chef Matt Worswick describes the delectable menu at his award winning restaurant The Latymer. Safe in the knowledge that each plate would be expertly prepared by his team of chefs, we settled in for an 8 course tasting menu with wine pairings, of course! Keep scrolling to see what we ate!
