Canterbury, Cambridge, Coventry ... not English cities, but stylish suites at this hill-top manor house in New Hampshire. Built in 1904 by a wealthy Englishman, it was later owned by an American photographer, before being converted into an inn during the Fifties. Today, it pays homage to its heritage, with the Three Cocks Pub, traditional "chambers", daily afternoon tea and an elegant wood-panelled dining room. In front, the shimmering Lake Squam is the spot for boat tours, kayaking and fishing.
