For some, a break in Berkshire means the chance to see some sights and maybe get in a little shopping. For others, however, it's the chance to indulge their passion for golf and test themselves against some of the best courses in the country. Bearwood Lakes Golf Club has an acclaimed course set within ancient royal hunting grounds; so this really is a golf course fit for a king! If golf runs in your blood, there's plenty of accommodation nearby, ranging from elegant guesthouses and budget stopovers, to luxurious, timber-beamed inns and modern, sophisticated hotels.
Stunning Scenery and Challenging Holes: Hotels near Bearwood Lakes Golf Club
The house at the Bearwood Lakes Golf Club was originally built for the founder of The Times newspaper, John Walter. However, the course itself didn't open until 1996. Designed by Martin Hawtree, it is a cunning blend of stunning scenery and challenging holes - particularly the 14th, which was created to be conquered with one, carefully-judged shot. Staying near the Bearwood Golf Club doesn't require quite so much concentration, as there is a good choice of excellent hotels in the area, from the family-run comfort of Lyndricks House bed and breakfast, to the unapologetic luxury of Oakley Court, set on the periphery of Windsor.
Self-Catering or Dining In?
If you're travelling as part of a golfing group or prefer to work under your own steam, the Beneficial House - House of Fisher provides a brilliant alternative to the traditional hotel. A set of serviced rooms and self-catering apartments, the Beneficial House - House of Fisher is for those who want to stick to their own timetable without having to adhere to the meal times and maid services offered up by conventional hotels. However, if you'd rather return from a day on the green and not have to cook for yourself, hotels such as The Winning Post and the Grange Bracknell both boast superb surroundings and exceptional restaurants.
The Bearwood Lakes Golf Club offers challenges to complete novices and seasoned professionals alike, throughout the year. Whether you're visiting for a corporate event, a peaceful weekend or want to brush up your game as part of an extended stay, booking the right hotel can make your stay everything that you want it to be.
