This prestigious AA Inspectors' Choice hotel -- one of the Top 200 hotels in the U.K. -- is a traditional country house hotel with lots of charm. Grade II-listed Corse Lawn House Hotel is set on 12 acres in the Severn Valley, close to the Cotswolds, Malvern Hills and the Forest of Dean.
The property is fronted by a pond and has two cozy drawing rooms, a large bistro bar and a fine-dining restaurant. It has won praise from The Good Hotel Guide for being “outstandingly good” with “well thought out” rooms. On-site facilities include an indoor swimming pool, a tennis court and a croquet lawn.
Food is a real highlight here: the 2-AA-Rosette restaurant, listed in the Michelin Guide, serves dishes such as baked fillet of pollock with herb crust and saffron sauce and warm pecan pie. There is also a bistro for more relaxed dining. Do sample a cognac in the bar after dinner -- the hotel owners descend from the famed Hine Cognac dynasty.
Further afield, the Three Choirs Vineyard is 20 minutes by car and has daily tours and wine tastings, the Eastnor Castle is 20 minutes away and there’s shopping in the market town of Ledbury, also within a 20-minute drive.
The intimate property has only 18 bedrooms -- all are uniquely decorated and filled with family antiques and extra treats such as fresh fruit and homemade biscuits. Wi-Fi is complimentary and there is no extra charge for visiting pets. Upgrade to a suite for a separate sitting room and four-poster bed.
From the press:
"Outstandingly good: the staff, many of them
long-serving, are enormously helpful" -- The Good Hotel Guide
by the Hines for the past generation, it's run with an eye to old-school
formality, but not to the detriment of a palpable sense of enjoyment in both
the principal dining room and the less formal bistro" -- The AA Restaurant
