Relaxed country manor with the heart and soul of one of the world's coolest members clubs? You know you're getting an ideal escape for urbanites when it's the rural outpost of the Soho House group that you're signing up for. It's out with stiff upper lips here, and in with wellies and metropolitan savvy. The walled garden is perfect for a romantic afternoon wander, but if you're feeling too lazy even for that, book a slot in the Cowshed spa for nose-to-tail pampering. Book the adults-only Playroom, with its own bar, walk-in shower and tub for two.
Rooms: including 11 in the main house, three in the spa, five family rooms in the Stable Block and the Lodge, a three-bedroom cottage at the top of the drive. From £260.
