This striking property was built in 1852, and has been a popular retreat since 1935. Set in eight acres of ancient forest, Burley Manor underwent a £1.8m restoration in 2016 and now positions itself as a restaurant with rooms. Within the kitchen, which serves modern Mediterranean cuisine, groups can dine at the Butler’s Pantry chef’s table. Larger dinners and meetings can take place in the beautifully converted Barn. Exclusive use of the entire property is also an option.
