Give yourselves a treat and spend a night or two at this brilliant address. Run by a creative, hard-working and determined young couple, with an equally motivated team behind them, Hampton Manor is refreshingly full of life and imagination. In the vein of The Pig hotels, James and Fjona Hill have created a place that’s laid back, fun and full of stylish, thoughtful touches, including spoiling bedrooms. There’s spacious and glamorous The Parlour, where you can indulge in a memorable afternoon tea or sip an inventive cocktail, while Michelin-starred Peel’s restaurant is set in a gem of a panelled dining room, decorated with beautiful hand-painted Fromental wallpaper, with food to match. Staff are dressed casually in chinos and tweed waistcoats… indeed it’s the little touches that count: firepits on the terrace; a Lalani & Co tea bar; handsome waiters who are funny too; spirited room information; spa treatments. All in all, Hampton Manor is the business.
Doubles from £190.
