Travelling moves closer to home in 2008 as explorers become more concerned with reducing air miles and eco issues. For the British, as with many countries, an awakening of it’s onshore treasures is long overdue. One of our British gems nestling in Hertfordshire is Sopwell House, less than an hour from London, it was Formerly the Georgian country home of Lord Mountbatten.
A four star offering, Sopwell House, set in twelve acres, is a hotel hideaway that exudes comfortable British charm, coupled with modern touches that include a gym equipped to high standards, to receive it’s regular football sporting stars and a spa featuring ESPA products for super-luxe blissful moments.
One of the stars of the venue is “The Restaurant”, which is a chic modern space delivering five star food. Ideal for local business men and women or for a fine dining treat.
Bustling with excited guests, Sopwell House has an energy and family feel that saw christenings and weddings come and go during our stay. Guests were trussed up in their finery, sporting red faces that spoke of one too many champagne adventures and would warm even the hardest heart and elicit a smile from onlookers.
With eighteen function rooms for private meetings and grander rooms available for sit down gatherings of up to four hundred, Sopwell House easily serves the business world and those looking for a country retreat. There are also a series of private cottages and apartments to the front of the hotel to allow V,VIP guests to visit without notice. With private garden areas surrounding each, these afford international guests a home away from home and more space than the usual hotel room. Guests include England and Arsenal football stars. Arsenal have their home-ground nearby and many footy stars regard Sopwell House as a favourite. For die hard footy fans, the hall of fame with football shirts signed by international stars and teams, offers a glimpse at sporting history.
Sopwell House is owned by AB Hotels which is a family run business and this personal touch is evident. Service is key and guests are the star of the Sopwell House show. The one wish they have for your stay is; that guests leave happy. A stay including their luxury spa, will undoubtedly achieve this aim.
