Thanks to Kevin and Catherine Dundon, this sprawling, two-story, 1830s Georgian manor house has plenty of allurements: the gardens are soul-restoring, the public salons are a soigné symphony of mix-and-match tangerine-hue fabrics and stuffed armchairs, the views over the Barrow estuary are grand, and the guest rooms charm with a judiciously luxe combination of period antiques and fine reproductions. A delightful three-bedroom lodge house is also for rent. No need to rush
the next morn: the famous breakfasts are served until 11:30. There's even a small but luxurious spa area.
