On the outside, Le Manoir is a quintessentially English estate, with a tree-lined path leading to a honey-stone Oxfordshire manor house - the perfect spot for a tranquil winter break.

This hotel is the vision of two Michelin-starred French chef, Raymond Blanc, so inside you'll find French influences, especially in the exquisite food.

You'll be welcomed to the estate with a glass of Champagne, and settle into your room. The 32 individually-designed bedrooms here are a marriage of the finest influences from around the world, each one drawing inspiration from Raymond's travels.

Tutors will teach you the skills needed to create the imaginative dishes from Raymond Blanc's extensive repertoire.

Style & Character

Gastronomes and gardeners, couples and families, or anyone wanting a relaxing hotel break where everything is just so will love it here. It's not cheap, but it's not all Mercs in the car park - Blanc's philosophy is that it should be accessible to everyone for a special occasion.
