The Manor House in Castle Combe is a quintessentially English, luxury castle hotel next to what is undoubtedly Wiltshire’s, and the Cotswold’s, loveliest village. The Manor dates all the way back to the 14th century but the present building and the general ambience lie firmly in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The hotel has extremely high levels of service and comfort, and an elegant sophisticated ambience throughout. It also has superb facilities including a Michelin starred restaurant, The Bybrook, a full 18 hole championship golf course, tennis courts, a croquet lawn and some gorgeously well manicured Classic, Gothic & Italianate gardens THE ACCOMMODATION: There are 48 indulgent bedrooms & suites, to sleep up to three, in both the main manor house and in the Mews Cottages which lie along the lane between the main building and the village. Some rooms are relatively modern but most display lots of old Victorian character; think wooden beams, lead framed windows and some wonderful old antiques and classic art pieces. They have some very plush bathrooms here, with some roll top, claw foot baths, ambient lighting and a pleasing amount of space. TVs. DVD players (They have a DVD library at the hotel) & READ MORE
Most Famous Guests: King Henry VIII & Anne Boleyn. Thornbury Castle Hotel is a true luxury B&B retreat at the edge of the South Gloucestershire Cotswolds, and one of the finest examples in England of a genuine, immaculately preserved, Tudor castle. You can soak up history with a stroll through the castle itself and its beautifully tended grounds which include, surprisingly enough, a 500-year-old vineyard, or treat yourself to a massage in the privacy of your own bedchamber and also enjoy some of the Cotswold’s very best food at the castle restaurant. THE ACCOMMODATION: The castle has 27 rooms in total ranging from classic baronial style bedchambers to some quite lovely superior and deluxe rooms and suites, as well as a cute two-bedroom annex cottage in the castle yard. Check your options on the booking page here. Most of the beds are four poster or coronet in style and you’ll find period features throughout, including, in some rooms, an old-style fireplace. Their bathrooms are suitably luxurious too and all in all no modern comforts are spared. FACILITIES & THINGS TO DO: The castle has plenty of common areas; opulent old-style sitting rooms and of course a very fine restaurant. All READ MORE
The very grand, 5-star Bovey Castle is a Dartmoor and South Devon institution. It has served as a luxury hotel for nearly 90 years now and still has oodles of old-fashioned British elegance and class. It has a gorgeous setting too, by the River Bovey and Dartmoor National Park, and a vast country estate surrounding it that includes one of England’s finest golf courses. ACCOMMODATION: They have 60 rooms at the castle, singles and doubles, and family rooms that can sleep up to four. Out on the estate grounds there are also several three-bedroom, three-bathroom, self-catering lodges. All the rooms are spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed, with the style being modest, understated luxury. The colour schemes are demure and soothing, fabrics are soft and inviting, and everything has a whiff of early 20th-century class, despite the large flat-screen satellite TVs and Nespresso coffee makers. Little touches include thick bathrobes, slippers, luxury ESPA toiletries, complimentary bottled water, and decanters of estate-produced sloe gin. The estate lodges are a relatively new addition and therefore more modern in style, though not glaringly so. They are well-equipped and spacious and will probably suit families whose children might appreciate having acres of green grass and trees READ MORE
The 5-star Lympstone Manor Hotel in South Devon is a Georgian-era manor house turned exclusive contemporary hotel that has realistic ambitions to become one of South West England’s very finest. It describes itself as a ”new generation’ country house hotel and oozes style and class; the superb interior design blending old and new with great panache. The setting is tremendous too with gardens running all the way down to the Exe estuary and the Jurassic Coast, and to top it all it has a restaurant that achieved its first Michelin star within six months of opening. THE ACCOMMODATION: They have a range of individually styled, soundproofed rooms and suites all with hand-crafted beds, temperature-regulating duvets, plush fabrics, and stylish furniture. Many come with balconies with estuary views and some of the suites have an outdoor hot tub on the private terrace. The bathrooms are particularly fantastic at Lympstone with enormous rainfall showers, romantic roll-top baths, and luxury L’Occitane toiletries. The hotel in general has an immaculate sense of style and there is much to learn here about interior design and attention to detail.
