Roger Saul, the founder of Mulberry, understands English country lifestyle well. The translation of his tweedy, hunting style into this luxury hotel works beautifully. He wanted 'comfortable, informal splendour' and thats what you get in the 25 bedrooms which have each been individually decorated. Adding to this is an award-winning restaurant that derives much of its food from the organic farm on the estate, as well as a spa. Activities like golf, horseriding and even clay pidgeon shooting can be arranged but perhaps the best pastime of all here is simply watching the acres of hyper-green grass grow.
