Lucknam Park is a beautiful, symmetrical Palladian mansion, set in 500 acres of unspoilt parkland. For the last 30 years it has been a splendidly luxurious hotel and spa, offering an indulgent escape from the daily grind into a world of elegant country-house living. From the mile-long drive lined with beech trees to the delightful public spaces, it’s all effortlessly sumptuous. The dining room, with its curved walls, cloud-painted ceiling and pristine double-clothed tables, is the perfect setting for Hywel Jones’ sophisticated, focused cooking. This is not fanciful stuff at the whim of fashion, but mature and well directed, where great produce is treated with respect. To begin, roast duck liver comes with caramelised chicory tart and an intense mandarin purée, with textural interest contributed by cob nuts and pomegranate. A main course of line-caught sea bass with crab bon bon and Trealy Farm chorizo makes for a fine, complex dish of contrasting flavours. Madagascan vanilla crème brûlée with glazed blackberries and ginger doughnuts is a delightful finale, light and fragrant.
