Askham Hall , Askham, Penrith CA10 2PF

Run by: Charles Lowther

Now open with a restaurant spread through three rooms, 15 bedrooms (15 from 2016) with a spa and outdoor heated pool, gardens and café open to the public and a converted party barn.  Its style? A luxurious, intimate, unpretentious home from home which is up-to-date, full of charm and somewhere you can relax after a hard day's cycling. This is a foodlover's haven: chef Richard Swale worked for Michelin 3-star Marc Veyrat in Annecy, France and John Burton Race in London. He also did a stint at NOMA, the world's top-rated restaurant. Beef and pork are home raised and herbs and veg are grown in the gardens. Staying here is like being a house guest at a country home. Flawless. Now in the Good Hotel Guide and the Michelin guide.  

Rooms: 18. B&B: from £75 per person (sharing). Eve meal: 3-courses plus nibbles £50. Tasting menu £65. Exemplary wine list. Secure lock-up and drying facilities.
