Winner of The Gourmet Britain Best Hotel Award for 2011Set in 500 acres of parkland laid out by Capability Brown, this beautiful country house hotel is approached via the gatehouses and protected from grazing sheep by a splendid ha-ha.
The core of the house was built by the Sherard family in the 17th century and their family portraits dominate the public rooms. Victorian additions blend in perfectly. Drawing rooms have comfortable sofas, splendid carved and moulded ceilings and roaring winter fires.
Upstairs, luxuriously-appointed bedrooms have been designed by more than 25 famous names - such as Nina Campbell, David Hicks & Coca Cola). Marble bathrooms are equally sumptious, with heavt bathrobes, luxury toiletries and tubs practically deep enough for a swim.
For more privacy, they also offer two cottages within the grounds.
There are excellent meeting rooms for business users, while children have a great list of exciting activities.
Golf (including separate putting), archery, billiards, croquet, falconry, fishing, pétanque, shooting - should be enough to entertain grown-ups.
A dining room, with Grinling Gibbons carvings, provides excellent on-site dining.
