Eight hand-picked her­itage get­aways with glo­ri­ous gar­dens a ached

Es­tab­lished by chef Ray­mond Blanc, Le Manoir is as renowned for its breath­tak­ing gar­dens as its coun­try house am­bi­ence and Miche­lin-starred cui­sine. You’ll have the chance to ap­pre­ci­ate all 11 gar­dens, from the cal­min­duc­ing Ja­panese tea gar­den (right) to the English wa­ter gar­den, orig­i­nally dug by 16th-cen­tury monks. The kitchen gar­den, the first of the plots cre­ated by Ray­mond, sup­plies around 90 types of veg­etable and 70 herb va­ri­eties to Le Manoir’s restau­rant and cook­ery school. If you feel in­spired to cre­ate your own mini manoir, book a course at The Ray­mond Blanc Gar­den­ing School.
