Grand historical houses and unique estates in outstanding locations in the UK and eventually around the world, are being made available for completely private use.
Guests will be looked after by an impeccable team and charming host who is there from the moment of your arrival, ready and equipped to handle every need. Masterpiece Estate hosts will perfectly characterise the heritage of each estate, and will be an expert in country life. The host will be the guests’ personal guide throughout a stay, arranging and accompanying activities and ensuring an utterly bespoke experience. Every day can be different, depending on whether individuals wish to embark on, adventurous activities or just completely switch off and get away from it all. The Masterpiece Estate experience will offer sumptuous tailor-made dining options, a vast range of activities, and the faultless service and surroundings you would expect from an Oetker Collection property.
Each Masterpiece Estate has been carefully selected by Oetker Collection for its privacy, enviable location and individual history. Each will offer the ultimate setting for a group of family and friends to gather, whether for a special celebration or simply to relax and enjoy the myriad of activities available to experience. Oetker Collection has unveiled the first three properties to join the new Masterpiece Estates collection, all in stunning destinations across the UK.
