Lucknam Park

Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expert Jane's verdict
This country house hotel just outside Bath rocks. A Relais & Chateaux 1720 Palladian mansion may sound stuffy, yet Lucknam Park is anything but, with a cutting edge spa set in a walled garden, a gorgeous pool where you can swim at night next to an open fire, Michelin-starred food and cookery school, its own stables and magnificent four-poster suites.

Recommended place to stay: Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa
