Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Great Milton
For when you're feeling really fancy, Raymond's Blanc's pitch-perfect Oxfordshire institution needs no introduction. Two Michelin stars, luxurious rooms, beautiful kitchen gardens, and top-tier gastronomy.
If you like farm-to-table, low-food-mile eating, this is the place for you: Belmond Le Manoir’s two-acre kitchen gardens produce 90 types of vegetable and a whopping 70 varieties of herb. Its mushroom garden sprouts roughly 20 edible species, and its orchard brings in apples, pears and quinces. Puts the weedy tomato plant on our windowsill to shame, eh?
For wine lovers, the hotel’s cellar is home to around 1,000 different wines from around the world, with around 60% of French provenance. The restaurant is open daily to residents and non-residents for dinner from 6pm, and offers lunch Thurs-Sun. Guests not staying at the hotel can book a table up to three months in advance, and given that the restaurant is currently fully booked for lunch until the end of December, thinking ahead is a must! Dress code is smart casual. (Oh, and reinforce your credit card — not all the best things in life are free…)
As well as staying and dining at the hotel, you can attend a top-quality cooking school here, and it’s also available to hire for parties and gorgeous weddings.
