Combining the romance of a grand Cotswolds country estate with easy access to Stonehenge and Regency Bath, Lucknam Park is a delightful base for explorations of the English countryside. This Grade II listed manor house dates back to the early 18th century, and is set in 500 acres of magnificent rolling parkland and formal gardens. The grand, tree-lined approach hints at just some of the rural splendour which awaits at the estate, from superb riding at the on-site equestrian centre, croquet on the lawn, tennis, falconry and clay pigeon shooting.
The interiors of Lucknam Park are equally enticing, with a Michelin-starred restaurant overseen by Hywel Jones, opulent afternoon tea served daily in the drawing room and an extensive spa which boasts a heated swimming pool, indoor-outdoor hydrotherapy pool and a clutch of thermal treatment cabins. At the end of a day of Cotswolds pursuits or indoor indulgence, retire to one of the estate’s supremely comfortable guest rooms. All are furnished in a traditional, English country house style, with a collection of suites on offer for those seeking enhanced space and comfort. A portfolio of self-contained luxury cottages is also available, the perfect option for guests seeking additional privacy and independence but with all the attractions of the estate on the doorstep.
