Leave the modern world behind while you dance foxtrots after dinner in the party room and sleep in sumptuous tranquillity at this eccentric lodging just south of Chester. Lavishly furnished with antiques, drapes, and ornaments (frogs in particular), this hotel makes its individualist statement that has won plenty of devotees. Lady Guinevere is the only tree-house suite in the country, and the conservatory restaurant has set-price menus (£38; booking essential). The hotel
is a 15-minute drive from the city.
