Owned by Lord Manners of Haddon Hall, this hotel combines stylish contemporary design by India Mahdavi with original period and antique features. Bedrooms are individually designed and boast DVD players, complimentary WiFi and smart marble bathrooms. Two rooms are particularly special - one with a four-poster and one with an antique bed originating from Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire. Imaginative cuisine, using local, seasonal produce, is a highlight. Guests are warmly welcomed and service is attentive. Fly fishing is popular in this area and the hotel has its own fishing rights on seven miles of the Rivers Wye and Derwent.
