In Colerne, The Six Bells is a friendly pub while the pretty Cotswolds village of Castle Combe is nearby.

By train: trains to Bath Spa run from London Paddington (1 hour 20 minutes) and Bristol Temple Meads (11 minutes). From the station the hotel is a 25-minute taxi ride away. Book trains to Bath Spa.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Cosseted by five acres of gardens and 500 acres of listed parkland, the main house at Lucknam Park is fronted by a portico and columns. Inside is a string of elegant public rooms, dressed with chandeliers and draped silk curtains. A courtyard behind the house leads to a modern spa building.

THE FACILITIES

There is plenty to see and do. The gardens include a walled garden and an arboretum, while activities include everything from croquet to falconry. The riding school offers equine therapy, and the spa has indoor and outdoor pools. Service varies; overall it is at the level of a five-star hotel, but standards can slip.
