Dennis Irvine Studio restores Palladian Mansion to create The Langley hotel with subterranean spa

by Jane Kitchen | 06 Jun 2019

The Langley, A Luxury Collection Hotel in Buckinghamshire, England has opened its doors, following an extensive six-year renovation project.

The hotel has been restored and designed in partnership with Dennis Irvine Studio.

Built between 1756 and 1760, the main Langley Park House is a grand Palladian mansion situated within iconic Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown-designed gardens. The building has been refurbished to allow historic original features to shine, reflecting the natural setting with refined elegance, and referencing the grandeur of its distinctive British heritage.

The mansion house is home to The Langley’s most opulent accommodation, including the three-bedroom Duke of Marlborough suite which is set around an octagonal central room, with views of the lake and park beyond. The second floor of the main house offers quirky, cosy rooms with views through historic round windows, whilst the Brew House is home to chic and rustic rooms and suites, reflecting the building’s storied history.

Located in the heart of Buckinghamshire’s Langley Park, The Langley offers 41 bedrooms, spread between the former hunting lodge of the third Duke of Marlborough, and adjacent Grade II-listed 18th century Brew House.

A 1,600sq m (17,222sq ft) wellness hub includes a subterranean spa combining striking design elements with facilities, including a private VIP suite, vitality pools, hammams, juniper-wood sauna with pink Himalayan salt walls, amethyst steamroom and a 16-metre marble-lined indoor swimming pool.

The wellness experience continues in nature, with an outdoor swimming pool by the banks of Langley Lake.

Boasting world-class training systems and equipment, the gym has been developed in partnership with fitness guru Matt Roberts, offering personal training using custom-made equipment and utilising the estate’s extensive grounds.

Further specialist offerings include comprehensive health diagnostics offering 3D-printed figurines to illustrate bodily progression in detail.
