A scenic stay at a historic and completely revamped country mansion near The Chilterns, with breakfast and either afternoon tea or dinner allowance

Discover the historic De Vere Latimer Estate after an impressive £7 million refurbishment that honours the original features of this Victorian abode, whilst filling it with modern design elements and contemporary charm. The walls here hold plenty of secrets, as the estate's intriguing history includes a role in military intelligence during World War II. Immerse yourself in country delights and historic sights, with a rural retreat to remember.

Set in the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire, there’s plenty more greenery to enjoy once you’ve wandered through every inch of the 30-acre gardens. Head into The Chilterns’ Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for knock-your-socks-off scenery, or amble along a riverside trail in Chess Valley. However you spend your days, you’ll want to work up an appetite for dinner in the inspiring 1838 Restaurant, with its Instagram-worthy design that brings the outdoors in.
