England may not be able to offer bikini boot camps in a tropical paradise, but it does the next best thing: a huge, sprawling, totally gorgeous stately home converted to a luxury hotel and leisure complex set in 350 acres of stunning English countryside. Everything at Stoke Park is absolutely top notch, with a state of the art gym and health/spa suite, indoor pool, championship standard golf course and tennis courts and award winning restaurant. Tennis fans should note that the hotel hosts “The Boodles” charity event every year and it’s no small thing. At 2013’s event Novak Djokovic – the world number one – is booked to play.
Famous fans of Stoke Park include Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Claudia Schiffer.
