Sudbury House Hotel, Faringdon, Oxfordshire
This is a hotel of two halves: a graceful, Grade II-listed house connected to a large modern extension, with a high reception atrium. The hotel has a first-rate collection of British art, including pieces by LS Lowry and Beryl Cook and there's a broad landscaped garden at the rear of the property, perfect for a pleasant stroll. Sudbury features two restaurants, one of which specialises in afternoon tea. Sat on the edge of a market town, it's well placed for exploring the local countryside.
The Faringdon Folly Tower, erected by Lord Berners and offering sweeping views, is a five-minute walk uphill from the hotel.
Faringdon market town is a five-minute walk away, while Oxford and the North Wessex Downs can be reached swiftly by car.
By car: Near the M4 and M40 motorways, Sudbury is a 30-minute drive from Oxford's centre, 1 hour from Bristol, 2 hours from Leicester. There is free parking at the hotel.
By train: Swindon Railway Station is a 20-minute drive away, with trains from London Paddington (1 hour), Bristol Temple Meads (40 mintues) and Swansea (2 hours). trainline.com

We love the arty touches in the suites: plenty of thought has gone into the choice of sculptures, antiques and elegant furniture. The Deluxe Suite (also known as Suite 57) is a stunner, with its own staircase, a separate lounge, bags of space and a rolltop bath.

Food & Drink
Magnolia serves good food without taking itself too seriously - alongside the main menu it also does a range of wood-fired pizzas. When dessert rolls around, is there anything more indulgent than a strawberry and Pimm's trifle? Just the thing for a summer's evening.
