Oxfordshire heritage meets French flair

Tucked away in the picturesque countryside, this 15th-century manor sets the standard for haute cuisine

 As our maître de maison, Raymond Blanc’s passion permeates through our hotel—from the individually-designed suites to the menus in our two Michelin-starred restaurant. Lush gardens are an abundance of colour in summer, while the honey-hued manor is warmed by open fires through winter. It is truly a house for all seasons.

Each exquisite suite serves up beautiful echoes of Raymond’s travels. Tip-toe into Botticelli to find freestanding Victorian tubs and hand-painted ocean murals. Or reserve Chinoiserie to enjoy a silken slumber among gold-leaf furniture. From the Far East to the Mediterranean, enter your own private fairytale.

I like to wander among the dewy orchards first thing in the morning; it often inspires the day’s menu.

Since opening in 1984, the manor has earned itself a global reputation for fine gastronomy. But its prominence is more than just about what’s on the plate. Rooms are imagined by prestigious UK interior designers. Fragrant orchards and a mushroom valley elicit awe. An annual Festival of Music promises a feast for ears and appetite.
