Further west lies Burley Manor, by the chocolate-box village of Burley (home to a fudge shop and ice-cream parlous). Rooms are either the grand manor itself or in the attached wing, which overlooks a deer park. Fires crackle in the fireplaces in winter, while in the summer the swimming pool comes into its own. The rooms are decorated in restful, nature-inspired hues; there’s a small but excellent spa; and the beds are so comfy it’s like sleeping on clouds.
