Social distancing has been a way of life for over 300 years at Lucknam Park. The glorious 500 acres of private parkland cocoon guests in the luxury of personal space.
As the country gradually opens up to social interaction, guests can gently reconnect with the great outdoors, reconnect with themselves, family and friends.
The scene is set from the moment you turn into the driveway of Lucknam Park. The magnificent mile long lime and beech avenue stands like a guard of honour gently guiding guests to the graciously restored Palladian mansion. Enveloped within its own classical gardens, extensive parkland and paddocks, the relaxed elegance of the quintessential English mansion is perfect for unwinding; and escaping from the pressure of life….to once again, find balance and reconnection.
The History of Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa
It is not known exactly when Lucknam began, but the –ham ending to its name, ‘Luckenham’ suggests that it was a Saxon settlement dating from before the Norman invasion in 1066.
From as far back as 1199 to 1688 there was a farmhouse on the current site of the main house. For over 5 centuries the land was farmed until 1688 when the last of that family died leaving all the estate to nine cousins who decided to sell. Lucknam Park was bought in 1987 by a joint venture trading as Lucknam Park Hotels Limited. In 1994 the hotel was bought by a European shipping family who operate Lucknam Park as a single private hotel property.
