Near the city but a world apart, The Great House hotel is situated in the picturesque, historical village of Sonning overlooking the river Thames. It’s hard to believe it’s only an hour from the bustle of London! Offering a peaceful escape from the stresses of everyday life, the hotel provides 49 light, restful bedrooms and suites, where every detail has been considered – including accessible, family, and dog friendly options. The bedrooms are located in the main house, as well as in separate buildings across the property, including the original 16th century Palace Yard and the 17th century Coach House.
The hotel also features the renowned Coppa Club, with an all-day menu, relaxed bar, and an expansive outdoor terrace. Inside the property there are also thoughtfully designed rooms for weddings, meetings and events, which feature exclusive access to a riverside lawn – an ideal destination for a countryside wedding. Guests can also enjoy regular riverside yoga and paddle boarding classes, alongside peaceful walks along The Thames Towpath.
