Coworth Park: Luxurious surroundings for a luxury DS car launch

IMG_6675.jpg
I recently went to the very lovely Coworth Park near Ascot, on the borders of Berkshire and Surrey. It’s a strange part of the world in some ways, a beautiful bit of countryside nestled between some not so beautiful parts of the world – I’m looking at you Bracknell and Slough!

Like a lot of country houses that have been converted into hotels, Coworth Park is predictably stunning. But what I thought was amazing was the attention to detail, from the sweeping wooden staircase to the interior control lighting in each of the bedrooms and a free standing copper bath in the bathroom.

Then of course there’s the spa which is quite simply out of this world – especially the large and beautifully lit pool which you can see pictured above.

I was there with a company called DS Automobiles who I must admit I knew very little about before going on the trip. But basically it’s a luxury car brand from France named after the iconic Citroen DS, first launched in the 1950s.

Quite simply it’s stuffed to the gills with tech including 14 Focal loudspeakers and a load of semi-autonomous driving and safety features including Night Vision mode (handy if you don’t want to run over deer on the country roads).

What I particularly liked though were the car’s massage seats which were very comfortable indeed – perhaps a little too comfortable for driving – and the detailing of the interior upholstery.

Like Coworth Park itself, there’s certainly no shortage of luxury with this latest DS car – a lot more Ascot than Slough.
