Coworth Park, Ascot $$$$
From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:The Dorchester Collection's first countryside hotel sits on 240 acres of polo fields and wooded parkland at the edge of Windsor Great Park, a mere 20 minutes from Heathrow. The 70-room hotel's main Georgian building is undistinguished architecturally, and contains incongruous design touches: A leafless metal tree arbitrarily dominates the lobby, the dining room ceiling is wreathed with shiny leaves, and upstairs hallways sport perplexing cabinets of whitewashed flower pots. However, there is still much to appreciate here. Guests are completely cosseted by the highly individual, high-spirited staff. Room furnishings in the main house are classical, with four-poster beds, but are updated with light, subtle fabrics and have hypnotic views of woods and parterres. Rustically furnished suitessituated in a small cluster of cottages, a stable, and an eighteenth-century dower houseare all suitable for families due to their generous size. At the casual, stone-floor restaurant The Barn, expect delicious renderings of wholesome English country fare, while the swank formal dining room presents delectable small plates, ingenious foams, and a crack sommelier. Befitting the setting, there's on-site riding, tennis, golf, and a wonderful spa with its own spa restaurant, but nothing tops the opportunity to indulge in that most cherished of rural English pastimes: long country walks. 2011 Hot List
