A Day in the Country
Escape from the City
for a Day in the Country
No need to get on a plane this Summer - hop on a train (or car) for A Day in the Country instead... it's much nearer than you might think.
Our gorgeous Tudor estate near Egham steeped in royal history & only 30 minutes by train from Clapham or 40 minutes from Reading is the perfect escape from the city this Summer. Pack your bag (hand luggage only required), hop on a SWR train and join us for a relaxing day on our estate.
When the sun is shining there's surely no better place to be than our glorious estate - outdoor (heated) pool, tennis court, terraces, gardens and more are all waiting for you just a hop, skip & a jump away.
Your Escape begins here
on The Great Fosters Estate
Arrive by car or if you're travelling by train we'll even include a taxi to meet you at Egham train station to whisk you straight to us (it's only a 5 minute journey). Collect your robe & towel and prepare for a day of luxury! You'll start your day as you mean to go on with a Champagne welcome on the Terrace where you can sit back & soak in the atmosphere.
Then it's a few hours in Utopia Retreat, which includes our dreamy outdoor pool & hot tub. Soak up the sunshine on your reserved sun lounger, interspersed with perhaps a few sips of rosé & a few dips in our pool. Sipping, snoozing and swimming is definitely the theme of the day.
Anyone for Tennis?
or go straight to the Pampering
If you fancy something a little more energetic an hour on our pretty outdoor tennis court is also included in your day. We have rackets and balls for you to borrow but do feel free to bring your own if you prefer.
After all that exertion it's time for some proper relaxation. A 55 minute Best of Both treatment is also included in your day. A divine creation from our Utopia team, our ‘Best of Both’ signature treatment brings together a back, neck & shoulder massage with a seamless transition to an essential facial routine. Choose to enjoy your treatment in peaceful solitude or as a couple in our medieval teepee which opens to the moat so you can feel the breeze as you're being pampered.
We think this is shaping up nicely...
Feasting Like Royalty
on your Royal Riviera
Food & drink are very important to us here at Great Fosters.
When you're feeling peckish you can choose to enjoy a light lunch on your lounger by the pool or why not opt for a scrumptious picnic, packed in a traditional wicker hamper, to enjoy at one of our secluded picnic spots in the grounds.
What could be more delightful?
All Good Things
Must Come to an End
As your Day in the Country draws to a close we couldn't wave you off without a few more treats. Finish your day at 5pm with a cream tea on the Terrace or Drawing Room, or if you prefer we can pack your tea to go to perhaps enjoy on your journey home. We'll then call you a taxi to drop you back at the station.
All that remains is for you share your day with the #alexandermoments.
Available Monday to Friday throughout the Summer.
