With a delay of over six years, Heckfield Place has been one of the most long-antipated openings in the industry – but the multi-million pound transformation project was well worth the wait.

Billionaire owner Gerald Chan enlisted the talents of designer Ben Thompson (a protégé of Ilse Crawford) to imagine the interiors of the listed Georgian home. Thompson has created a unique sense of hushed luxury, layering handcrafted elements and natural materials with antiques and fine art from the owner's own collection.

At the helm is Olivia Richli as General Manager, previously of Aman hotels in Asia and Venice, and Soneva Jani in the Maldives. Heading up the food and drink facilities is Skye Gyngell of Spring restaurant in London's Somerset House, who has developed strong concepts for both of Heckfield's dining spaces. Marle is a restaurant with a menu focussed on ingredients that are locally grown and bio-dynamic, and Hearth is an atmopsheric dining room with an open fire, and a menu that celebrates classic British cooking. The wine cellar boasts 1,200 bins.

The Bothy Spa offers treatments from Wildsmith Skin across five treatment rooms, three studios and a steam and relaxation room, while the hotel's cultural programme, The Assembly, features workshops, speakers’ events and screenings (there's a 67-seater cinema in the main buidling).
