Must read

It’s a longish, well-manicured, tree-lined winding driveway resulting in the imposing Victorian, Grade II listed Tyney Hall lodge. The former stately house of Lord Windlesham after which Lord Rotherwick as soon as served because the HQ of a delivery line, after which Tylney Hall turned a college.

Eventually, in 1985 it turned a lodge. The inside is as stately as a stately constructing could be, with loads of wooden panelling, marble fireplaces, a sweeping staircase, portrait work, and excessive ceilings, lots of that are artworks in themselves.

The most luxurious ceiling, an authentic function, is the darkish blue and gold hexagonal ceiling within the Italian room. They imported the ceiling from the Grimation Palace in Venice, and it’s a imaginative and prescient price tilting your head again for a second or two to admire.

The Italian lounge with its beautiful ceiling

I bought there one sunny day for a 3.30pm check-in, however a bumper night the evening earlier than. – I feel a marriage social gathering might have been the wrongdoer – meant a 30-minute delay for me.

Reflecting on what a romantic atmosphere Tylney Hall is, I  took tea on the terrace and loved the views over attractive lawns and gardens whereas I waited.

And there’s loads to admire inside its 66 acres of grounds, together with an Italianate backyard, a walled backyard and a few lovely lakes. I misplaced myself for fairly some time simply ambling round these grounds.

Mine was Lord Rotherwick (room 6) in the primary home, an especially spacious bed room.

Meals are served within the opulent Oak Room Restaurant, although room service is offered. Breakfast is a buffet with fruit, cereals and pastries with two cooked choices: a Full English (I had the veggie model) and porridge. The dinner menu gives 5 starters and 7 mains. I selected the slow-cooked cod fillet with batter scraps, tartare butter sauce and minted peas. The foremost meal was a really flavoursome, juicy corn fed rooster breast, tarragon and motel mousse “faggot”, peas, broad beans, a herb emulsion and crushed jersey royals.

I noticed a Chateaubriand that got here with hand-cut chips, bearnaise sauce and stuffed mushrooms at £85 per couple. Unfortunately, I used to be alone that day.
