The Retreat, Elcot Park

Elcot, Newbury, West Berkshire, RG20 8NJ

The Retreat is a newly re-imagined 18th-century country house hotel & spa set in magnificent grounds, located between Hungerford and Newbury in the heart of the beautiful West Berkshire countryside, with a wine shop, coffee shop, hair and nail salon and two gorgeous restaurants which are open to everyone.

We are a laid-back luxury kind of place, with fun, colourful design, great food and drink, plenty of cosy corners and a fabulous spa, not to mention spectacular views of the North Wessex Downs.

The Retreat experience is all about enjoying exceptional food and drink. We have two stunning restaurants: 1772, our all-day brasserie; and Yu, our Pan-Asian fine dining restaurant. Afternoon tea is served in our Atlas Room and we also have a number of fabulous spaces for private parties and social celebrations.

The Retreat is the perfect party venue too – the countryside setting, the décor, the food and drink and your friendly and experienced hosts make for a winning combination. Whether it is a birthday, a company retreat or your special day, we have it covered.

There’s always something going on at The Retreat, including monthly farmers markets, cookery demonstrations and more.

“We live locally and decided to give the brasserie a try with friends. We were not disappointed! The food was superb, and everyone could not have been more helpful. We highly recommend it as the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.” – TripAdvisor, May 2022
