England, United Kingdom

Unbeatable rural retreat steeped in contemporary elegance with 20 acres of peaceful gardens. Price includes a fabulous 5-course dinner

Gilpin delivers at every turn, its staff delightful, its food divine. Cool country-house elegance flows throughout: Zoffany wallpaper, gilded mirrors, flowers everywhere. Bedrooms have exquisite fabrics, delicious art; some with French windows that open onto the garden, others with hot tubs on private terraces. Afternoon tea is served every day; a car will whisk you to the restaurant for delicious suppers. At the main house you’re in 20 acres of silence, so throw open doors and sit on the south-facing (and candlelit) terrace surrounded by pots of colour. The South Garden was planted by Great Grandmother Cunliffe in 1917: sweeping lawns are laid with borders and hedgerows with mature trees. The East Garden has a water feature, and a rockery of Japanese heathers. Just a mile away is the Lake House with stunning all-round views: once simple grazing land it is now idyllic woodland that blends seamlessly into the landscape. A rockery winds up to a Druid circle and the kitchen garden has pristine beds of raised slate. A clearing reveals dramatic glimpses down the valley to Morecambe Bay. Laze on the jetty and listen to nought but birds.
