The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts has announced that The Langley will open in summer 2018 in the heart of the Buckinghamshire countryside.
The Langley will join a growing ensemble of over 100 Luxury Collection hotels and resorts around the world. Owned and managed by City & Country Hotels, The Langley is the sister hotel to The Wellesley Knightsbridge, a Luxury Collection Hotel, London which overlooks Hyde Park.
Located in the Langley Park estate, the hotel is an exquisite 41-room boutique hotel and 25,000 square-foot spa set within 500 acres of idyllic Buckinghamshire countryside. The hotel is comprised of two buildings, a historic mansion that was once the former estate of the Duke of Marlborough and a Grade II-listed 18th century building that was formerly used as a stables and brew house. In partnership with the award-winning interior design company Dennis Irvine Studio, who also created the design concept for The Wellesley and the two Wellesley yachts, the buildings have been undergoing an extensive multi-million-pound renovation over the last four years.
Before entering the hotel, guests will take in impeccably landscaped gardens and a beautiful, imposing Lebanon Cedar Tree which is centuries old, both of which are listed by English Heritage. The Grade II-listed gardens were re-designed in the 18th century by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, the renowned landscape architect responsible for changing the face of Britain’s gardens forever.
The ornate entrance transports visitors back in time as many of the building’s original features have been re-established, and in keeping with its heritage, imposing doorways and Baroque fireplaces are found throughout the property. The hotel’s interior design carefully balances the history of the building with contemporary luxury while creating a number of distinct and bespoke design features. Guestrooms and suites feature elegant roll-top baths in the centre of the bedrooms with expansive windows framing views of greenery and the open lake.
Opposite the entrance of the main hotel, guests will find The Brewhouse – a Grade ll-listed out-building that will house a number of characterful bedrooms where the former owners concocted their own local brew using old-fashioned methods.
Hotel developer, Khalid Affara, said, “The restoration of The Langley has been an incredible process involving large teams of experts painstakingly regenerating this magnificent historic building to its former glory. The whole estate is steeped in such rich history and heritage we are excited to soon launch a product that successfully celebrates The Langley’s past whilst offering contemporary luxury and design alongside outstanding dining. The sheer size and specification of The Langley Spa help to make the estate an outstanding destination.”
Upon opening, The Langley will be the fourth Luxury Collection property in England, joining its sister hotel The Wellesley Knightsbridge, The Park Tower Knightsbridge and The Westbury in London.
