    Crazy Bear, Beaconsfield

    Muddy says: Understated, elegant, demure - The Crazy Bear in Beaconsfield is none of these things! An antithesis to the blandness of many hotels, this destination promises sexy OTT interiors, glam events and when it all gets too hot and steamy, a cooling outdoor pool surrounded by a terrace. Respect!

  • Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons
