Wheatleigh is an exceptional Berkshire hotel, the winner of multiple awards for its rooms, service standards and fine dining cuisine.
Surrounded by mountains and acres of private landscaped gardens, forests and lawns, the scene is truly set for a regal stay in this stunning 19th-century mansion complete with Romanesque pillars, stone balconies and just 19 exclusive guestrooms.
While here you can’t help but be enamoured by Wheatleigh’s infinitely elegant interior design, which compliments the building’s grand exterior and grounds perfectly as high-ceilinged rooms are lined with European style ornaments, artworks and glass cabinets full of antiques. Large and original Tiffany windows also let in plenty of light and although Wheatleigh is unashamedly attached to its history and heritage, the rest of the furnishings and fixtures throughout are actually very modern, meaning the best of both worlds.
As a Leading Hotel of the World, it should also be no surprise that internationally recognised fine dining is another part of the Wheatleigh package, with some food critics claiming the onsite Portico by Jeffrey Thompson Restaurant to be one of the best in New England; maybe in the entire country. This is the first of two restaurants, plus an award-winning wine lounge, outdoor tennis courts, a gym, massage room and quaint oval swimming pool surrounded by trees and flowerbeds. Then, with easy access to the highlights of Berkshire, Tanglewood Music Festival, ski slopes, hiking and biking routes plus the hotel’s own golf course just a few miles away, Wheatleigh really does stand out as something special indeed.
