This graciously restored 17th-century manor estate is tucked behind stone walls in one of England’s prettiest villages. Divided between the main house and a separate courtyard annex, 19 rooms (many with fireplaces) blend contemporary furnishings with antiques and fine art. Though all lodgings lack A/C, most offer comfortable seating areas and views of the idyllic countryside and five acres of landscaped gardens. The hotel’s inviting parlors complement the stylish crystal-and-chandeliers dining room, which incorporates the estate’s original chapel and faces chestnut-shaded lawns. Amenities include a billiards room, a cocktail bar with leather furnishings and brass accents, and a hard tennis court.
Good to Know
There is an afternoon tea option specifically designed for men that includes a cheese and charcuterie board, savory scones, beer onions, Welsh rarebit, gala pie and local beer or cider.
