This beautiful Cotswold country manor hotel, set in 12 acres of gorgeous English gardens, makes a popular choice for Londoners who crave a sybaritic weekend away (and a haven for grown-ups – no children under 12). Close to the quaint market town of Malmesbury, it offers 23 individually designed, luxuriously furnished rooms, in warm colours, with a mix of antique and contemporary furniture and sound and vision by Bang & Olufsen. Unwind in the Aquarias Spa, where features include an indoor/outdoor hydrotherapy pool, a series of heated relaxation experiences and spoiling treatments. Relax in the 26 stunning garden areas or watch a film in the 40-seat cinema. There’s a refreshing lack of pomp in The Dining Room, where new executive chef Niall Keating’s innovative, seasonal cooking draws inspiration from many different cuisines including Korean, Japanese and classic French. His outstanding creativity is on display with every dish. Doubles from £350.
