Birch (Handle.Silk.Comet) named using the What3Words location system in anticipation of further Birch sites, is a newly launched hotel set in the 55 acre Georgian-style Theobalds Estate in Hertfordshire.
A total refurbishment during 2019/20 saw the hotel, now under the leadership of Chris Penn and Chris King, become one of the UK’s coolest country retreats offering guests a place to truly relax and to experience a huge range of activities ranging from baking to beekeeing! Beyond this there are 20 event spaces and, of course, fabulous food.
With Robin Gill (Darby’s, The Dairy, Sorella and Counter Culture) at the helm, the focus is on quality, provenance and sustainability. Several acres of the estate’s land are now devoted to creating an in-house farm for raising home-reared livestock and growing vegetables and herbs.
