- From a charming country house to a characterful city retreat, LYDIA BELL picks the best quintessentially British stays with a touch of bohemian luxury
This exclusive-use, four-winged idyll is the little sister to the nearby recently refurbished Cotswolds stalwart Dormy House, and so it benefits from good genes and proximity to Dormy’s spa. The 1909 property has also had its own revamp, with classic-quirky rooms featuring Scandinavian simplicity, eclectic antiques and luxury textiles. Dining options are limitless, from a romantic tête-à-tête to a lavish ballroom bash for 80.
Insider tip: There are a range of country pursuits to choose from, including archery classes on the estate. From £3,500 exclusive hire per night; foxhillmanor.com
L-R: Foxhill’s sweeping drive; the plush interiors; a bathroom with a view
