Great Fosters is a charmingly imposing Grade One listed mansion set amongst 50 acres of stunning parkland and gardens, with lawns that lead to the Saxon moat! This immaculately preserved stately historic monument, which became a hotel in 1931, has 2 lovely restaurants, with the Tudor Room attaining a Michelin Star in October 2016. It boasts a most desirable location close to Heathrow, the M25 and M4 and near Windsor, Wentworth, Staines and Virginia Water.
The 19th century house was originally the home for the brother-in-law of the Duke of Wellington and subsequently a Spanish Count. In 1922 W G Tarrant acquired the development rights and the famous golf course architect, Harry S Colt, was engaged to create the East and West golf course, with Tarrant building exclusive properties for the wealthy, as he did with nearby St Georges Hill. Wentworth Golf Club is now one of the world’s finest golf and country clubs; home to three championship courses, a nine-hole course, tennis & health club, and an active social calendar and elegant contemporary dining in The Grill.
Virginia Water Lake is a beautifully scenic area that lies on the southern edge of Windsor Great Park. There are an abundance of stunning vistas as you make your way around the lake including striking woodland shores. The surrounding area is steeped in a rich history that spans centuries from ancient roman monuments, to cascading waterfalls. Valley Gardens and Savill Gardens bring in visitors from near and far and locals enjoy the beautiful walks.
The Village Green is a stone’s throw from where the last fatal duel in England took place in 1852; however it is better known and loved for its cricket, well attended village fair and the Barley Mow gastro pub. Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller honeymooned here in 1956, staying in Parkside House, for the duration of Monroe's work on the film The Prince and the Showgirl with Laurence Olivier. Englefield Green is also home to superb state and private schools, a big driver in bringing people to the area.
Our wildlife-rich countryside of Runnymede hasn’t changed much since 1215, King John’s day, when he signed the Magna Carta, which was the first formal document stating that a King had to follow the laws of the land and it guaranteed the rights of individuals against the wishes of the King. Whether you take in the history or just enjoy the scenery as you walk amongst the trees, wildflowers, or the banks of the River Thames, you will be seeing a landscape that helped change history; Runnymede is an enchanting place to be!
