NES­TLED in lush es­tate grounds, in the quiet Northants coun­try­side, yet only around hour out­side of London, is the sev­enth cen­tury Fawsley Hall. The house has ex­isted through Tu­dor, Georgian and Vic­to­rian times and re­flects all pe­ri­ods har­mo­niously. Even the Spa com­plex blends in.

Its 58 bed­rooms of­fer quaint, com­fort­able coun­try stylebed­rooms, mod­ern rooms and Gothic-style but my favourite touch was the rub­ber duck, perched on the rim of our bath.

Queen El­iz­a­beth 1 stayed at Fawsley, and if you book well in ad­vance, you can sleep in her room – the 1575 suite — with its plush scar­let and white dé­cor over stone walling, a re­gal four-poster, huge open fire­place and brass chan­de­liers.
