Holiday In The London Countryside?

Experience a touch of country relaxation just a few miles from the capital

The idea of experiencing some rural relaxation a mere stone’s throw from one of the country’s busiest motorways and barely a dozen miles from central London seems almost fanciful – but a Hertfordshire hotel set in 35 acres of parkland with its own arboretum offers guests just that.

For business stays requiring an oasis of calm and relaxation amidst a hectic schedule, or for leisure breaks taking in the attractions of London and the surrounding area, the West Lodge Park hotel in Hadley Wood is ideal.

This country retreat in Hertfordshire offers a full range of luxury hotel facilities in a setting combining the benefits of the peace and tranquillity of the countryside with close proximity to not only a capital city but excellent road, rail and air links.

Your home from home

The West Lodge Park is a family run hotel providing comprehensive facilities including various types of room accommodation, several dining options, conferencing, packages such as golf stays, dinner and concert deals and even a bee keeping day.

Amongst the arboretum’s 4500 trees are over 800 species that can be sampled any time by guests whether just wandering through it or taking a guided tour, and this coupled with the picturesque landscape will make it hard to believe you’re so close to major transport links and London itself.

Holiday time?

Sometimes finding time for a relaxing break can be difficult, but being able to get to somewhere like the West Lodge Park quickly by road, rail or air means a few spare days can soon be turned into a relaxing break.

The type of break can be tailored very easily; maybe something simple is called for with the flexibility to do what you like?

If so a day or two relaxing and wondering the grounds may be enough. If you fancy something more organised then choose from the hotel’s activities as mentioned above including guided arboretum tours, bee keeping days, shopping packages and more.

Your time

You may fancy formal dining or the option to eat in a more informal setting or even in a private dining room; the West Lodge Park offers all this and more including champagne breakfasts and afternoon tea.

The highest standards

The West Lodge Park backs up its comprehensive hotel facilities with high levels of service; many of its staff have worked for the family run concern for several years, and it’s an AA and RAC four star establishment so you know you’re in the hands of hospitality specialists.


A key attribute of a stay at the West Lodge Park is convenience combined with a rural-like experience, and to this end its location near Hadley Wood puts it a few miles from the M25 motorway and close to other major road links such as the A1 and M11.

Three international airports are within easy reach just off the above major motorways in Luton, Stansted and Heathrow and there’s plenty of parking including charging points for electric vehicles.

Coming by helicopter? No problem as there’s a free to use helipad.
