This country house hotel, which is Grade II listed and is set in 42-acres of landscaped parkland, offers a romantic place to stay on the edge of Flitwick in Bedfordshire. The manor house is steeped in history -- parts of it date back to the 17th century and it is approached by a long avenue of lime trees that were planted in the 18th century. The capacious grounds contain an arboretum, a walled garden and a lake.
Local nature reserves in the area provide further opportunities for getting out and about in the fresh air -- nearby is ancient Flitwick Wood, which is rich in native plant life and is home to wildlife, including woodpeckers and muntjac deer. Flitwick Moor meanwhile is the largest area of wetland in Bedfordshire and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Popular attractions on the Woburn Estate, including the historic house, the landscaped gardens, the safari park and the golf club, are all within approximately 10 miles of the hotel.
The hotel's restaurant has two AA rosettes and uses fresh seasonal ingredients to produce a menu of British and European dishes. The dining room has wood panelling and garden views. Enjoy a drink from the bar on the terrace or find a cosy spot by the log fire in the lounge.
The hotel is a popular venue for weddings, events and corporate functions -- it has three meeting and event rooms, one of which has the capacity for up to 58 guests. The manor house is licensed for civil ceremonies and a marquee is available.
There's free Wi-Fi in the 18 comfortable rooms, which also have complimentary toiletries. Superior rooms are furnished with antiques and some have original features. The honeymoon suite (also known as the master bedroom) has original wood panelling, a four-poster bed and a private sauna.
