It’s hard to believe you are only an hour from London at the Four Seasons’ only UK country hotel. Set amid 500 acres, you can watch the hotel’s horses frolicking in paddocks from the coolly sophisticated bedrooms (including a beautiful new Martin Brudnizki-designed Royal Suite). It’s easy to lose yourself in the grounds, playing croquet, clay pigeon shooting, fishing or canal boating, while children can be kept busy at the Kids’ Club, or even with an ‘own a pony’ experience. A large, light-filled spa occupies the original stable block, along with a 20m pool. Service is exemplary, and the food is everything you would expect from Four Seasons. Wild Carrot, the new restaurant and bar launched this year, makes the perfect setting for memorable meals and has been an instant hit. For tea made with honey from the hotel’s own bees, head for the library. Sunday lunch is a highlight, an interactive Farmers’ Market feast featuring entirely local produce. Go on, treat yourself.
