This elegant country-house hotel 6 miles southeast of Warwick makes a quiet, luxurious getaway; it has 30 rooms but still manages to feel as if you're just visiting wealthy friends. The style in the comfortably designed bedrooms (some are in the Knights Suite, a separate building) is country chic, with clever touches of pattern and texture. One of the biggest attractions is the oak-paneled dining room, acclaimed for its exquisite French cuisine; the more casual art deco
brasserie is also good. You can use a nearby health club and also book spa treatments in your room. There's even a helipad.
