Danesfield House Hotel and Spa


Looking out towards the River Thames and the Chiltern Hills, Danesfield House Hotel arguably enjoys the most spectacular country house setting in the UK. Set among 65 acres of wonderful landscaped gardens, between the quintessential market towns of Marlow and Henley, it is approached by an impressive tree-lined drive. 

The hotel offers 55 individually designed luxury rooms and suites, some with their own balcony and views across the Thames. Huge windows frame the captivating scenery. Choose from traditional country house or contemporary style. 

There are three dining options where you can sample the finest modern British dishes created from fresh, seasonal produce all given a magical twist by the talented hands of Executive Head Chef Massimo Principe. The Restaurant is open daily for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner and consists of three areas used at different times of the day and according to the seasons. 

And to complement your stay, step into a wonderful world of relaxation at Spa Illuminata Danesfield House for the perfect spa break. With an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, poolside steam room and sauna and a wide range of treatments, you’ll be tempted into some indulgent pampering. 

The history and the gardens… 

The house is built on a site that has been a settlement through the ages and the name “Danesfield” originated from the Danish adventurers who made an encampment here. Brimming with history, Danesfield House was once home to the Intelligence Section of the RAF. In 1901 the house was re-built as a family home for Sunlight Soap magnate, Robert William Hudson, and in 1991, it first opened its doors as a hotel. 

Pretty fountains and waterfalls make Danesfield Gardens so quintessentially English while the Italian Garden adds a touch of the Mediterranean. Formal gardens consist of towering Yew topiary and box hedging filled with varieties of English and French Lavender. Walk past two original waterfalls to viewpoints overlooking the River Thames. 


The elegant architecture and stunning landscaped gardens at Danesfield House provide the perfect ingredients for a wedding whether an intimate affair or something grander. 


Located just 30 minutes from London Heathrow Airport and less than one hour’s drive from Central London, Danesfield House is the perfect venue for business meetings, conferences and other events.
