A leafy drive leads you to the tranquillity of Foxhills where a beautiful ivy clad manor house is the centre piece for this 400 acre golf club and spa resort that is just minutes from the busy M25.
This Surrey hotel manages to combine family friendly, business and spa with ease, with impressive modern health club facilities which contrast with the 19th century hub where breakfast and dinner is served.
It is a stunning setting that manages to remain down to earth with an atmosphere that is friendly and relaxed.
There’s two championship golf courses, putting green and driving range where beginners are welcomed alongside seasoned experts, with lessons on offer for those who want to brush up or start from scratch.
For water lovers there is an indoor 20 metre swimming pool, three outdoor pools and a natural pond swim and dip area, set within a secluded spa garden, complete with outdoor hot tub and sauna.
For the ultimate quirky touch there is a traditional red telephone box within the zen garden where guests can call through to the bar to have drinks delivered as they relax.
Add to this a range of spa treatments, tennis courts, a well equipped gym and children’s clubs and it is clear to see why this is a popular destination.

The 70 bedrooms have super comfy beds and a fridge with real milk, instead of the usual mini cartons of UHT, which was a much appreciated extra touch.

Breakfast is a tempting buffet of fresh fruit, cooked meats and cheeses, cereals, nuts and seeds, followed by a range of cooked options.
