At the head of a double avenue of 400 lime and beech trees, Lucknam Park is a country-house hotel in a league of its own. It occupies a mellow 17th-century mansion, with gracious reception rooms and stylish bedrooms in the house and former stables. It’s impeccably run, with attentive yet discreet service. You’ll find Hywel Jones’ exceptional Michelin-starred cooking in his eponymous formal restaurant and the cool, contemporary brasserie with open kitchen. Then there’s the spa, with sleek indoor/outdoor pool, sauna, salt room, social lounge with mixology bar, and eight treatment rooms offering an oasis of relaxation. The impressive equestrian centre caters to all standards, and the innovative Cookery School runs numerous courses, such as ‘Michelin-starred cooking at home’. For your own slice of the estate, there’s a three-bedroom, self-catered cottage. With excellent amenities for children, including a family play facility, ‘The Hideaway’, and an outdoor play area, Lucknam is as great a choice for families as for romantic couples, groups of friends and celebrations.
