It’s hard to believe you’re only an hour from London at the Four Seasons’ only UK country hotel. Set amid 500 acres of the Dogmersfield Park Estate, you can watch the hotel’s horses frolicking in paddocks from the coolly sophisticated bedrooms (including a beautiful Martin Brudnizki-designed Royal Suite with its own private terrace). It’s easy to lose yourself in the grounds, playing croquet, fishing or cycling, while children can be kept busy at the Kids’ Playground or the hotel’s family adventure pool, Sharkie’s Reef, complete with a four-metre slide. Located in the Manor House’s original 18th-century stable block, the large, light-filled spa, 20m adult pool and outdoor vitality pool all feel far removed from the modern-day stresses of everyday life. Service is exemplary, and the food is everything you would expect from Four Seasons. Wild Carrot, the hotel’s restaurant and bar, makes the perfect setting for memorable meals. For a quintessentially British afternoon tea, head for the library. Sunday lunch is a highlight, featuring entirely local produce from the heart of Hampshire. Go on, treat yourself.
