Rewild your body and soul in Selsdon
Birch (Selsdon), set within 200 acres of rolling hills and green space and just 30 minutes from the centre of London, is an escape from the everyday. A sister hotel to the award-winning Birch (Cheshunt), it's a welcome respite from the noise and intensity of London's concrete jungle where members and guests can find headspace, try new things, and have some fun along the way!
More than just a hotel, there's nature to restore calm, menus designed to nourish, wellness to re-align body and mind, workshops to feed creativity, and music curated to soothe and re-energise.
At the heart of the estate sits a 19th-century Gothic-style mansion which has been added to over the centuries after it was first developed into a hotel in the 1920s. Birch has peeled back the property's layers to reveal its true nature and bring out its best features, then added the usual Birch touch of craft and fun — this time with an extra splash of glamour.
Along with 181 bedrooms of all shapes and sizes, the hotel boasts a pottery studio and screen-printing workshop to make and create; a reading room and arcade provide space to switch off; active visitors can enjoy the lido (opening summer 2023), tennis courts, running and cycling tracks (outside). It also boasts a wellness space with gym, studios, and treatment rooms; while two restaurants and three bars will keep guests refreshed and full up. There are also communal areas for working hard... or hardly working!
