It has been three months since my birthday weekend at Langdon Hall (Twitter: @Langdon_Hall, Facebook: Langdon Hall Country House Hotel & Spa). I've already posted about my fabulous meals there (chef's tasting menu and Sunday brunch) so under normal circumstances that would be it from me. However, I felt it would be wrong to not share these photos with you. Even though this post is not food-related I guarantee it is worth your time. I also believe that everybody deserves to know how beautiful Langdon Hall is.
For three years in a row, Langdon Hall - a Relais & Châteaux (Twitter: @RelaisChateaux, Facebook: Relais & Chateaux) property - has been voted best hotel in Canada 3rd year in a row by the Condé Nast Traveller Readers Choice Awards for 2013. The property was also placed 63rd on its World Top 100 List in a 7-way tie with luxury properties from St. Lucia, Mexico, Costa Rica, Turkey, and Georgia.
There are four walking trails throughout the Hotel's property. Trail maps can be found in each of the guest rooms or at the reception desk.
Open from May until late September, the pool is great for swimming and lounging. The property also has a tennis court and croquet lawn.
The spa at Langdon Hall offers a wide variety of aesthetic and therapeutic services. There is a whirlpool, sauna and steam room within the spa.
From the greenhouse, chefs kitchen garden, the lily pond, to the woods and fields, Langdon Hall is full of plants and wildlife.
We stopped at the cozy Wilks' Bar for a light afternoon snack.
I guess it's impossible for me to not include food in a blog post after all :)
DILLON'S GIN SMOOTHIE
Dillon's Gin combined with Elderflower St. Germain, yogurt, honey and a hint of sage
Cured Ham, Olives, Almonds, Marinated Cheese
After our snack we headed over to the games room for a game of snooker.
Our hotel room was located on the third floor of the Main House. Langdon Hall has 52 guestrooms and suites.
All rooms feature feather beds with down duvets.
It’s always nice to get a little something when checking in. Yum.
TV and wood burning fireplace.
The fireplace is not just for show.
Storage nook before the bathroom.
Walkway to the bathroom.
I know it's weird to say this for a bathroom and it might not be evident in this photo, but this was really a breathtaking view. The natural light coming in from the window makes the space so surreal.
I wish my shower at home looked like this.
Yep I'm obsessed with this bathroom.
We went back to the room after dinner and found this on our bed. Cute and thoughtful.
The next day before brunch, we walked around the property to soak in as much flora and fauna as we could before heading back to the city.
So peaceful and serene.
It's worth the drive to Langdon Hall. Trust me!
