Fodor's Review

A blend of stone, wood, and glass, the Farnham Estate—one of the top spots in the Midlands to detox and purify—exudes the promise of contentment, styling itself as a "playground for the senses" as well as offering a superb choice of dining options. Extended from the original big house (dating from 1664), the hotel comes with 1,300 acres that includes a golf course and mature grounds. Guest rooms and corridors are in relaxing neutral themes of beige, silvery greens,

and sky blue, echoing the tones in the gardens and grounds. What steals the show however, is the spa, and in particular the Laconium, which re-creates the atmosphere of a Roman sauna. The snail shower, salt grottos, and reflexology footbath are also recommended. Ask at reception for a booklet outlining five nature trails through woods and around lakes, and make sure you see the magnificent Monterey pine in the center of the parkland.
