For a revitalising stay just 45 minutes away from central London, and within easy reach of Stansted Airport, Down Hall is an exceptional choice. The spectacular building dates back to 1540 and is surrounded by 110 acres of gardens, woods and rolling countryside. The hotel’s 100 rooms have recently been renovated in a contemporary country-chic style with feature bedrooms offering four-poster beds and breathtaking views. Make time to visit the Eden Spa, with its hydrotherapy pool, steam room and sauna, and book in for a massage using Espa products or a Jessica Nails manicure. Round off your day with dinner at The Grill Room, where you can sample modern British cuisine: leg of guinea fowl stuffed with walnuts and tarragon, say, followed by chocolate fondant with pistachio ice cream.
