While private clubs will always call P.G. Wodehouse to mind, they’ve changed a huge deal since they were the smokey and exclusive hangouts of well off members of the British upper class. Just as exclusive as they used to be (maybe more so), Soho House’s clubs are as much architectural treasures as they are retreats for the wealthy. Just take a look at the Soho Farmhouse for example.
Located on a 100 acre farmhouse in the county of Oxfordshire, far from urban bustle, this retreat doesn’t cut any corners. Boasting 40 separate and individually designed cabins and a main area that includes dinning areas, a gym, boathouse, bar, movie theater, yoga studio, and sauna – guests are not left wanting more. The retreat’s boathouse is a real stand out on the property – with cobblestone floors, terrace roof, and reclaimed wood it has a modern feel that still manages to translate a sense of heritage. Unfortunately (for us at least), if you want to visit the Soho Farmhouse designed by Michaelis Boyd, you’ll have to manage to become a member first.
