Once the dower house to Lynsted Park, Dadmans sits on the edge of parkland surrounded by orchards, grazing cattle and sheep. Happy hens provide your breakfast eggs and Amanda sources fantastic local produce for dinner, served in the dining room on gleaming mahogany. There’s an elegant drawing room with roaring winter fires and a place to catch the evening summer sun; bedrooms have indulgent beds, views and good bathrooms. Large gardens are pretty too with ancient trees, walled areas, a nuttery, herb gardens – and a swing seat for sitting and admiring. Nearby, find plenty of gardens, castles and cathedrals.
