Teddington hotel and spa – The Lensbury has tranformed its Rose Garden into the perfect summer sipping location. The Secret Garden is hosting Sipsmith’s new Strawberry Smash Gin 2022 Championships Edition and much more. The pop-up bar has a beautiful floral archway and deckchairs.. perfect for enjoying the beautiful English sunshine. I was very relaxed in the unexpected pocket of the hotel – a place that is quite familiar to me.

If you feel the need to be transported to a tranquil place, but are not leaving London this summer, then this is for you! It’s tucked away in the hotel’s expansive grounds and the pond is teaming with wildlife including enormous carp, dragonflies, lilypads, frogs and suchlike. An idyllic spot to enjoy a refreshing summer cocktail with loved ones.

On the menu is London Dry Gin in a classic G&T, or enjoy a citrus G&T with Sipsmith Zesty Orange Gin. I tried a spritz served with the Sipsmith Strawberry Smash Gin 2022 Championships Edition.

Guests can also discover the hotel’s first-class sport facilities, including 22 tennis courts (three of which are Wimbledon-style grass courts), a watersports centre that offers kayaking, sailing, and motorboat hire, as well as a state-of-the-art gym and an extensive high energy and holistic classes. (I hear the yoga classes there are excellent!)

To celebrate the launch, The Lensbury has also announced an exclusive overnight stay package,
perfect for gin lovers: ‘Gin, Bed and Breakfast’ includes a one night stay with breakfast, a Sipsmith gin
cocktail in the new Sipsmith Secret Garden at The Lensbury, and full access to the hotel’s leisure
facilities, including the gym, indoor swimming pool and thermal suite. Prices start from £170 per
room/ per night.
