This hotel is exactly what we look for in a contemporary character property. Neatly balancing its 17th-century facade and heritage with a recent refurbishment by Sally Conran, it meets the needs and then some of even the most seasoned traveller. It’s a picture-postcard hotel – a former parsonage draped in foliage – and inside retains personality but combines it with a thoroughly modern approach to the latest in-room luxuries, facilities and gourmet food at all hours of the day. Afternoon tea is a must. AM. Doubles from £155. 01865 310 210, oldparsonage-hotel.co.uk
