find out more about The Springs

Surrounded by the beautiful English countryside, our hotel and spa in Wallingford offers luxurious facilities and fabulous accommodation

The Springs has a rich history, from a stunning Tudor-style house to the 133 acre golf course and spa retreat it is today. Having undergone a fabulous development and renovation of the country house and clubhouse, our beautiful resort is waiting for you to discover.

Joining the Darwin Escapes family in 2017, we’ve lovingly developed and restored the picturesque buildings, which now houses a fabulous new spa and relaxation pool, as well as a beautifully decorated restaurant and clubhouse.

the Ridgeway’s journey

Our iconic Tudor-style clubhouse has a fascinating history, it was built in 1893 and has had various transitions from resort to golf clubhouse over the years. It was once owned by legendary rocker Ian Gillan, from band Deep Purple, who created a spa offering with a twist, including a unique guitar shaped swimming pool!

We have renovated the old Springs golf clubhouse into the stunning Ridgeway Restaurant, named after the famous Ridgeway Trail nearby. The restaurant offers delicious dishes, visitors can enjoy a meal and a drink from our fully stocked bar. With a nod to the golf course in all areas, including golf ball inspired lamps and vintage pictures around, you’ll love spotting all the hidden hints around you.

Members have access to The Spike bar, where you can relax after a game and enjoy the beautiful decorations and historic information about the course on the walls.
