Standing proudly within extensive gardens, Stoke Place in Buckinghamshire is a restored 17th-century mansion just 30 minutes from London. Fusing period features with contemporary design to create
eclectic interiors, the house and its 26-acre grounds are particularly popular with weary city dwellers looking for a luxurious boutique-style retreat. The high-end but homely accommodation was
bolstered by the addition of 10 glass-walled Garden bedrooms in 2011. For private celebrations and meetings, the seven stylish spaces range from comfortable lounges to contemporary function rooms,
while the entire venue is available on an exclusive-hire basis. The Garden Bar is a tranquil, airy space, while the similarly unstuffy Garden Room delivers season-led fine dining. Teambuilding is
well catered for and those with angling ambitions can try their luck in the lake. Clay pigeon shooting is another of the country pursuits on offer.
