Put aside a little time to wander the stunning gardens.
When pulling into the round gravel drive of the Great Fosters manor house in Egham, take note of the unique pinnacled chimneys and the windows, featuring stone mullions and transoms with leaded lights. These two dominant features, along with the impressive oak-beamed interior of the Tithe Barn, speak volumes about the rich history of this 16th-century hotel.
Dining is handled in the Oak Room, where modern English cuisine amplifies the finest seafood, game, and produce to radiant new levels.
Some would argue that Great Fosters intricate and extensive gardens are in some ways just as impressive as the luxury hotel itself. A place of pilgrimage for horticultural lovers, the moated knot garden, arbors, and Drake sundial (named after Sir. France Drake) are really just the begining. The grounds continue for 50 acres over a grand lawn, tennis court, croquet pitch, a grassed amphitheater, and onwards to an achingly romantic Japanese bridge and sunken rose garden.
