Britain is littered with manor houses and hotels from one end to the other, and the Lake District has the record of having the most when it comes to concentration. Some of the top Manor houses and hotels in the UK include:

  • Lime Wood

Located in the New Forest, Hampshire, this beautiful hotel with oak doors and pale lemon coloured walls is a favourite of many, and for good reason. Their food, which is prepared by celebrity chef Angela Hartnett, who specialises in various European cuisines, is what makes people to keep coming back. Lime Wood charges £245 per night

  • Gravetye Manor

Located in East Grinstead, West Sussex, this Elizabethan style edifice stands tall in a lush green surrounding to give it a scenic look. Redbrick chimneys, mullioned windows, throne style chairs, and gigantic fireplaces, will leave any traveller in awe. They even got awarded a Michelin star. Gravetye Manor charges £208 per night.

  • Lympstone Manor

Located in Exmouth, Devon, this is among the most recent manor houses to pop up in England. It is run by Michael Caine, a double Michelin star winner, who is responsible for whipping up great meals that are the main attraction for visitors who travel from afar just to stay at the hotel. Lympstone charges £290 per night.

  • Cliveden

Found in Taplow, Berkshire, the place is a lovely spot for dining with a beautiful view overlooking spectacular 19th century designs and woodlands which run down to the great Thames. On top of this, it has a very rich history. Cliveden charges £340 per night.

  • Askham Hall

Found in the Cumbria region, Askham Hall is a combination of modern architecture with a family themed setting of furniture and paintings that make it feel part private club, and part a home. Under Richard Swale, a magnificent chef, the place has been able to maintain regular patronage all year long.
