From the original Soho House, which opened in London in 1995, founder Nick Jones has taken the concept global-- with private clubs and hotels and restaurants in Berlin, Miami, New York, Chicago and Istanbul. The latest development is Soho Farmhouse, which is slated to open this summer on an 100-acre estate in Oxfordshire, 90 minutes from London.
There will be 40 cabins of varying sizes, including a four-bedroom cottage and a seven-bedroom farmhouse—spaced around two lakes. The restaurants and the Cowshed spa will be a huge draw, and recreational activities are limitless: two flood-lit astro tennis courts, crazy golf, horseback riding, a gym and fitness studio, a “five-a-side” football field, and an ice rink for the winter months. There will also be a kids club, and an “Electric Barn cinema”. Rumor has it that gourmands will be able to pick up some culinary tricks at an on-site cooking school. Note that photos have not yet been released.
