Overview

Featuring stunning escapes selected for their unique views, unrivaled décor, and one-of-a-kind ambiences, this book is the perfect gift for both the sophisticated traveler and interiors aficionados. Travel journalist and hotel expert Meg Nolan van Reesema has explored England from London to the Lake District for its most pampering, exclusive hideaways. Oxfordshire’s Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons is one of England’s most prized destinations, with its 2-Michelin–star cuisine and the manor house’s French-inspired rooms featuring luscious silk fabrics, mullioned windows, and four-poster beds. Just an hour outside London, the stately Hartwell House ensures a peek into the grandeur of England’s former estates: each room offers original details, antique furnishings, and massive Georgian windows overlooking the property’s parkland, complete with grazing cows and a small river filled with swans. With more than 200 original photographs of stunning interiors set against romantic English landscapes from the moors to the seaside (the book includes properties in Cornwall, Devon, York, Wiltshire, the Cotswolds, Oxfordshire, Norfolk, The Peak District, East Sussex, Lancashire, Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland, Middle England, Lake District, and London), the book is an invaluable guide to the finest escapes in England.
