Set in an old manor house amidst extensive gardens, Raymond Blanc’s culinary fuelled hotel oozes traditional English elegance with a nod to contemporary style, boasting 32 luxurious suites and bedrooms each offering a unique theme. The beautifully kept gardens even include a mushroom valley and lavender walks, not to mention the kitchen garden which produces 90 varieties of vegetable.
A stay at this gastronomic haven would of course be incomplete without indulging in one of the hotel’s cookery courses. Led by head tutor Mark Peregrine this expert team of chefs will give you all the skills to create mouth-watering dishes back home – choose from bread making, confectionary, patisserie, nutrition or themed courses, such as fish or vegetarian.
A perfect slice of rural England, Belmond le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons sits amidst the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, just a short drive away from the heart of Oxford.
Each of the 32 suites and bedrooms are beautifully and uniquely decorated. You’re really spoilt for choice. Many of the decorations are inspired by Raymond Blanc’s life and travels. Surround yourself in Botticelli murals or spread out in a Garden Suite, inspired by Provencal France. For the utmost elegance choose the Blanc de Blanc suite, decorated in calming white hues and natural textures. This eco-friendly suite boasts its own private terrace and garden where you can completely unwind and rejuvenate.
