A VERY

WARM WELCOME As much as I dislike the days starting to noticeably draw in, I always look forward to the changes in the seasons and all that comes with them. Although the summer holidays are good for business, I have to admit that I do love the more tranquil autumnal months when there is still some warmth in the sun and the English countryside is considerably quieter. The New Forest, Cotswolds and Berkshire landscape is beautiful throughout the year but as the leaves start to turn you will often find yourself out for a walk, run or cycle with barely a soul around. Our chefs have been busy dreaming up stunning, yet simple new dishes based around the very best local ingredients for our autumn menus. However, our most popular dishes won’t be disappearing, actually, we have gone one step further than this as our chefs have been collaborating to share some of your favourites across the Iconic family, so that you can enjoy them wherever you stay. Taking our foot off the gas is not an option as we continue to plan further improvements which, small or large and whenever possible, are planned to coincide with the quieter months. Our main focus this winter will be the indoor pool at Chewton Glen, which will benefit from a complete facelift, ready in plenty of time for the return of all our regular Christmas House Party guests. Chewton Glen has never stopped reinventing itself and setting the standard for others to follow, possibly this is why the AA have literally just crowned us ‘AA Hotel of the Year’ again. Considering all of the new and very credible competition, this is wonderful recognition for the team and our owners who continue to reinvest. As you will read, we have other even bigger projects on the horizon however more of this in due course! In the meantime, thank you for your continued support and we hope to welcome you back soon… Best wishes

C

alling all little explorers with big imaginations! We introduce you to The Beehive, our NEW kids’ club at Chewton Glen. Working collaboratively with Blue Forest, the aim was to build a woodland hideaway that inspires children to reconnect with the great outdoors. This fantasy-like den sits within the majestic grounds of the hotel and is fully equipped with all the necessities to ensure your children create everlasting childhood memories during their stay. LITTLE DETAILS FOR LITTLE VISITORS If you had a treehouse as a child you’ll remember many days spent outside and all the adventures you shared with friends. Your imagination painted a picture of architectural splendour although the reality was probably less impressive. These memories helped us to create a hideaway for our kids’ club where all the finer details have been covered. From a comfy reading nook and plenty of toys, to bi-folding doors out onto the balcony, a rope bridge to run across and a metal slide to glide down from the treehouse in style. CREATE AND LEARN

PERFECTLY PAIRED

It will be no surprise to those of you who have already visited Chewton Glen that nature and nurture are part of the makeup of this hotel. With 130 acres of beautiful grounds, 70 thriving beehives and enchanting wildlife across the location, from deer to squirrels and songbirds, we wanted to create a timetable of activities that is not only fun, but educational.

Allow us to tell you how The Beehive and relaxation are perfectly paired during your stay. Whilst your little explorers are getting creative and making friends, you could be walking to the beach, indulging in a treatment for two or learning a new recipe at the Cookery School. A visit to Chewton Glen is as much about you as it is about your family.

“One of the activities is called ‘All About the Birds’ and during this session we help the children to create their own bird feeders to have in their garden at home, plus a bird spotting book to keep them engaged and aware of the many types of birds that visit our gardens every day. Activities such as this are so important to help protect wildlife yet also are great fun!”

MAKING AN ENTRANCE The Beehive Treehouse took centre stage at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year with our collaborators, Blue Forest. Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell officially opened the treehouse on Press Day and we were delighted to have their support. The new arrival received a lot of attention during the show, welcoming thousands of visitors to view our new kids’ club including some famous faces you may recognise…

Laura Gadd, The Beehive Manager It’s all going on at The Beehive with plenty of scavenger hunts, arts and crafts and even sports days to enjoy. Bring your family to Chewton Glen very soon for a family getaway you won’t forget... Photography by Prospect Arts Photography & Adam Lynk Photography

WOOFS &

WELLIES As we enter wellies season it’s time to celebrate the special bond between man and dog, and show that come rain or shine a walk with your pooch is as beneficial to them as it is to you...

T

he family dog – happiest when filled with food, snoozing on their bed or running their nose along the ground, picking up important scents along the way. They have everything they need and they love everything they have. Maybe we could learn a thing or two from our furry friends? National Walk Your Dog Week (1st – 7th October) celebrates the inherent benefits of walking with a four-legged companion. Whether it’s for confidence, for fitness, for company or simply for your mental health, that simple walk around the block could be doing more good to your mind and body than you even realised… A leisurely stroll with the dog enables us to observe the world around us from a different perspective; the pace is slower, the time is important, it’s calm and it’s a valuable bonding exercise with your wetnosed companion. Aside from the obvious medical benefits of lowering blood pressure, increasing energy, weight loss and an improved sense of well-being, walking with your furry family member can strengthen your bond. Dog walks provide much-needed quality time, which in turn helps to provide the foundation

6

for a loving relationship. So in celebration of National Walk Your Dog Week we invite you to champion this very special member of the family for keeping you as happy and healthy as you do them. There is plenty of scenery to take in around you when you’re a guest at one of our hotels. From sweeping hills to sandy paths, wondrous woodland and glorious gardens – you’ll be spoilt for adventure, we guarantee you that! The Lygon Arms is set amongst an Area of Outstanding Beauty making it an ideal location for your break away with your pooch. The hotel offers bundles of colourful wellies for guests to borrow, making that walk through the countryside

DOUBLE-BAKED EMMENTAL SOUFFLÉ

B

orn at Chewton Glen the Doublebaked Emmental Soufflé has been on the menu for over thirty years, with people travelling far and wide to enjoy it. First created by Pierre Chevillard and perfected by current Executive Head Chef Luke Matthews, this contemporary twist on a staple classic is perfectly paired with Kitterlé Pinot Gris from Schlumberger, or just with friends on a autumnal evening in The Dining Room. Delight your taste buds with this bestselling starter at any of our Iconic hotels this autumn and winter.

We’d love to share the secrets of our Soufflé with you. Book onto one of the ‘Recreate Chewton Glen Classics’ cookery classes this season at The Kitchen Cookery School. During this class, Chef Tutor Steve will not only teach you this iconic recipe, plus together with much-loved recipes from Chewton Glen’s repertoire of culinary triumphs. To find out more visit: www.chewtonglen.com/the-kitchen

BLACK TRUFFLE RISOTTO

I

t was from a foraging experience back in his Commis Chef days, that Executive Head Chef of the Cliveden Dining Room, Paul O’Neill, fell for the earthy truffle. This nostalgic memory links the beginning of his career with the present, which is why he will always include truffle on his menus. Fragrant and delicious, the black truffle is an incredible ingredient, bringing dishes to life with its exquisite taste and indulgent reputation. From gentle notes of hazelnut in the early summer to the intense earthy aromas by mid-season, truffles bring so much flavour. The Black Truffle Risotto is a must-try dish across the Iconic family.

THE ICONIC BURGER

A

good burger is one of life’s pleasures. From the best meat to the perfect accompaniments, nothing quite beats a succulent burger filled with flavour. The Iconic Burger sits proudly on the Hans’ Bar & Grill menu, celebrating the very best of British produce from near and far. The tender Wagyu meat used within this dish sets the scene for a truly mouth-watering experience, paired with gherkins to create that contrast of piquancy, not to mention that crunch with the first bite. The mild, sweet flavours of Monterery Jack cheese finish this burger off perfectly, especially as it melts into the meat! Sandwiched in a brioche bun, no burger would be complete without the accompaniment of chips. When it comes to the Iconic Burger it felt only right to maintain its granduer by adding triple cooked chips. There is a lot of method in the delicious madness as the chips go through a three-stage process - all good things come to those who wait!

Served with parmesan and chives, Paul uses Vialone Nano rice instead of Arborio as it can absorb twice as much liquid, creating that mouth-watering, creamy consistency you’d expect from the finest of risotto dishes.

STICKY TOFFEE PUDDING

V

ery few can resist the British sticky toffee pudding. With a light sponge, sticky texture and the smoothest toffee sauce, it’s no wonder this is a favourite. We’re championing the recipe of Ales Mauer, Head Chef of The Lygon Bar & Grill who maintains the secret to his delicious dessert is to crush the dates, not to blitz them in a blender to keep it sticky. Placed on a smooth blanket of toffee sauce and topped with melting clotted cream ice cream, this dish is truly indulgent and a fabulous winter warmer.

SPA’ RKLE

THIS SEASON When we envision the colder months it looks like cosy nights by an open fire, long, hot baths in peace and quiet and delicious feasts among family and friends. We tend to forget the central heating dries out our skin, the dark nights zap our energy and all we want to do is hibernate, therefore we asked Kerry Hudson, our Spa Director, for her best wellness tips to help you look and feel your best this season:

EXERCISE REGULARLY

COMBAT UNHEALTHY HABITS

Regular exercise can ease symptoms of fatigue and low mood. This will help you relax yet boost your energy levels. If you have a gym membership make sure you utilise the personal trainer appointments, as PTs can help motivate and inspire you to keep you on track. At The Lygon Arms we ensure every client is monitored through their workout regime and diet programme, both of which are specifically tailored to their needs.

The changing seasons make it easy to slip into bad eating habits. Try to remain strong, plan meals in advance and ensure you’re still taking in your five fruits and vegetables a day. Fill your diet with plenty of nutrients to give you the best chance of fighting off those common colds and fluey viruses. All our Iconic spas have a great selection of smoothies, juices and healthy filling meals to choose from - remember salads and juices aren’t just for summer!

STAY SOCIAL

MEDITATION

It’s important to remain connected to your loved ones and friends. Each spa across the Iconic family has created an active members’ social calendar which is a great way to meet new people and enjoy company throughout the winter.

Mediation can boost serotonin levels in your brain. Through meditation, you can calm your mind and move your attention away from anxious or negative thoughts. Serotonin is such an important chemical. It regulates our mood, sleep patterns, digestion and even memory so be kind to yourself, make time to just sit and be, clear your mind and take a breath!

GET ENOUGH VITAMIN D It’s all too tempting to hibernate when the days feel shorter but try to resist. Embrace sunlight, this can be as easy as opening your blinds during the day or going for the early morning walk or run to get those endorphins flowing.

IN WITH THE NEW Chewton Glen was the first country house hotel to have a luxurious spa in the UK, and come winter time this tranquil oasis will undergo an exciting refurbishment. Nestled in the 130 acre grounds of the estate, The Spa offers a place to relax and unwind. This impending project has been designed by Interior Designer Anita Rosato, and is inspired by the hotel’s coastal location, and luxurious surroundings.

We always encourage our spa guests to venture into our relaxation area after their spa treatments to just enjoy the quiet space and unwind.

From soothing spa days to half day experiences, each of our Iconic spas have all you need to relax, recharge and glow this season.

HOTTEST

HAPPENINGS From extraordinary parties to corporate celebrations, world-class performances and fantastic festivals, here we showcase some of the hottest happenings in 2019…

DINE & DISCO AT CHEWTON GLEN

W

e very much enjoyed living in our little ‘Bublé’ of entertainment at the end of May as the highly anticipated ‘Dine & Disco’ event returned to Chewton Glen. This annual celebration raised significant funds for Children in Need and was hosted by Virgin Radio Presenter Chris Evans, the Frothy Coffee Man and their team.

After a fantastic feast, Q&A with the Chefs and an interesting insight into the wonderful work Children in Need do, our guests were treated to a captivating introduction from Blue Fish Entertainment, followed by surprise performances from Billington & Quinn, Beverley Knight, Sophie Ellis-Bexter and KT Tunstall.

Much like every other Dine & Disco event there was the promise of an unforgettable experience and indeed this was delivered. The Walled Garden was transformed into a thriving, delicious food market with each stand hosted by some of the industry’s top Chefs from Atul Kochhar, Tom Kerridge, José Pizzaro, Luke Phillips and James Martin. This incredible offering was perfectly paired with an array of beverage options from Aperol, Belvedere vodka, Mary Rose Gin and Taittinger Champagne.

These incredible performances certainly kept the crowd in the party spirit, ready for the headliner Michael Bublé to put on a memorable show that we’re still talking about today. Considering he was in the midst of a busy world tour, Bublé did not disappoint.

14

The event raised an amazing £3 million for Children in Need, a charity that provides grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged.

THE ICONIC PARTY AT CLIVEDEN HOUSE

O

ur first Iconic Party brought together our key partners, corporate and leisure guests to enjoy a fantastic evening in the warmth of British spring. The weather was everything we hoped it wouldn’t be; wet, cold and windy yet this didn’t ‘dampen’ spirits at all. In fact, it simply made our most important guests feel even more welcome (pictured right). Set in the walled garden of The Cliveden Spa, guests enjoyed a red carpet arrival and Champagne reception followed by stellar entertainment courtesy of acoustic trio Wandering Hands and Radio 1 DJ Chris Stark.

Alongside the Veuve Clicquot champagne bar, there were also a selection of Iconic cocktails on offer representing each of the properties. The Cliveden ‘66, Chewton Glen’s Captain Marryat Mint Julep, The Lygon Arms’ The Taylor Burton Affair, and 11 Cadogan Gardens’ Eighteen 97. It was a wonderful event and an absolute pleasure to welcome special guests to Cliveden House to celebrate all things Iconic Luxury Hotels. A delicious and entertaining evening was had by all.

The garden looked spectacular, with food stalls, a pic ‘n’ mix station, #IconicParty social media wall, and Champagne bar, all set against a backdrop of twinkly lights and Cliveden’s famous clock tower. A mini food festival ensued as tents serving delicious fare from all four Iconic properties showcased each hotel’s unique dining style.

OUR AQUATIC PLAYGROUND

N

o visit to Chewton Glen would be complete without a visit to The Solent, our very own aquatic playground. The Solent is a unique stretch of water (the busiest for boating in the UK) and an area steeped in history and natural beauty, offering a wealth of activities in its many harbours and estuaries. Sheltered by the Isle of Wight, it is a perfect stage for a myriad of water-based activities and events. With a variety of different water sports on offer this is the perfect addition to your team away day. From races to get your adrenaline going, to sailing experiences filled with sophistication. RIB TREASURE HUNT A treasure hunt with a twist: it’s fast and it’s wet! Groups travel on high-speed RIBS, using Nexus 7 Tablets, teamwork and lateral thinking, to solve cryptic clues to complete a scavenger hunt and photo mission finding secret locations on the beautiful Solent. SAILING REGATTA An exciting and aspirational event, sailing days are designed to give guests the thrill of taking part in a regatta and are suitable for all abilities and levels of experience. It requires communication and cooperation to achieve a common goal: If the team doesn’t work together and communicate effectively, the boat simply won’t sail. Racing with a fullyqualified skipper and mate on identically matched yachts will ensure that participants get the maximum enjoyment from the experience. LUXURY YACHT CHARTER Chewton Glen is only 15 minutes door to shore, and what better way to entertain your colleagues or clients than on board a fantastic Sunseeker powerboat or luxury yacht.
