Autumn is one of the best times of year for enjoying the finest British produce, and this week we offer five great ideas for the perfect autumn gastronomic getaway.
Among our many country house hotels, we've chosen three with first class restaurants. On the western side of the Malvern Hills sits Colwall Park, where the award winning Seasons Restaurant offers classic British cooking in a lovely oak-panelled dining room. Matfen Hall, in the charming village of Matfen just outside Newcastle, has a great golf course and spa in addition to the excellent Library and Print Room Restaurant. Hintlesham Hall, outside Ipswich, also boasts an onsite spa and golf course in addition to a superb 3 Rosette restaurant.
Among our city hotels, the Hotel du Vin in Glasgow lives up to its name with more than 600 bins of wine available at the Bistro du Vin. And while Parkes doesn't have a restaurant of its own, the perfect Knightsbridge location puts the best of London's dining scene at your disposal, and the resident chef also provides one of the tastiest breakfasts in the city.
