Hallmark Hotel Flitwick Manor is a Grade II-listed country-house hotel, set in four acres of landscaped parkland, on the edge of Flitwick in Bedfordshire. The manor house is steeped in history -- parts of it date back to the 17th century and sits at the end of a long avenue of lime trees that were planted in the 18th century.
Flitwick Wood, which is home to wildlife including woodpeckers and muntjac deer, is around is less than 15 minutes' walk away, while Flitwick Moor -- the largest area of wetland in Bedfordshire and a Site of Special Scientific Interest -- is a 5-minute drive from the hotel. Popular attractions on the Woburn Estate, including the historic house, the landscaped gardens, the safari park and the golf club, are all less than 20 minutes' drive from the hotel. ZSL Whipsnade Zoo and the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are around 30 minutes' drive away.
The hotel's 2-AA-Rosette restaurant uses fresh seasonal ingredients in its menu of British and European dishes, which The Daily Telegraph praises for its "inventive and appetising twists". The restaurant has wood panelling and garden views. You can enjoy a drink at the bar, or on the terrace, or find a cosy spot by the log fire in the lounge.
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 4-poster bed and a private sauna. Wi-Fi is free.
