Dorchester Collection’s Coworth Park Opens Standalone Cottage

Dorchester Collection’s country house hotel and spa Coworth Park (just outside of London) has unveiled a new three-bedroom standalone gatehouse cottage. North Lodge at Coworth Park has a private driveway, lobby, dining room and kitchen, where guests can cook for themselves or have a dedicated chef to cater for them.  

The latest addition to Coworth Park’s 22 suites, North Lodge is Coworth Park’s gatehouse, located on the outskirts of the grounds with full access to the rest of the estate. Guests can make use of their own private garden with an outdoor dining area. The 2,200-square-foot North Lodge, which has been recently restored, showcases artwork by local artists, as well as antiques sourced from the local villages and neighboring Windsor. Furnishings are British-made and design features nod to the hotel’s links to equestrian and polo. 

The master bedroom has a super king-sized bed, high ceilings and views of the meadow and the private garden. An en-suite bathroom includes a signature Coworth Park copper bathtub, double vanity and a large walk-in shower. The Turret room has a king-sized bed, a walk-in dressing area and en-suite bathroom with its own signature copper bathtub. A further double room, known as the Snug, has views across the meadow and a family bathroom adjacent to it.  

The highlight of North Lodge is the open-plan kitchen and dining room with space for up to 10 guests. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances from premium brand Miele. Guests can expect a full-surface induction hob with a Teppan Yaki plate, a steam oven and Sous Vide unit. Alternatively, guests can take advantage of the dedicated chef who, on request, can prepare the same Coworth Park restaurant food within North Lodge. The chef can also host a private masterclass for the whole family around the dining table or kitchen island. There’s also a wine conditioner and a built-in coffee machine.   

From the dining room, French doors open out onto the private garden and deck. There is also a sitting room with an original wood-burning stove.

North Lodge is the nearest accommodation to The Spa at Coworth Park, providing three leading product ranges (Aromatherapy Associates, Carol Joy London and ishga). The spa has eight treatment rooms, including two doubles, a manicure and pedicure suite, relaxation room, The Spatisserie, gym, indoor pool and outdoor sun terrace.  

Coworth Park’s Mansion House is just a short walk for guests to enjoy the Michelin-starred Restaurant Coworth Park under the guidance of executive chef Adam Smith, as well as seasonal cocktails in The Bar and the Drawing Room, where afternoon tea is served. Alternatively, guest can choose to dine on rustic fare in The Barn. There are also buggies on hand to make the journey around the grounds even easier. 

North Lodge is the second private standalone cottage at Coworth Park, joining the Grade 2-listed Dower House, first built in 1775. The Dower House has a private driveway, spacious galleried entrance hall, three en-suite bedrooms, snug/study, living room, dining room and kitchen. 

North Lodge at Coworth Park is available to book for up to six guests, with a minimum stay of five-night stay. Guests staying at North Lodge have full access to The Spa at Coworth Park, Equestrian Centre and a choice of various dining facilities on the estate.
