Langshott Manor, Horley, Surrey
Step into a quiet oasis at this timber-framed Tudor gem, set in three acres of beautiful gardens with box hedges and ornamental urns. Leaded windows, decorative fireplaces and beamed ceilings are a nod to its 16th-century origins; bold, contemporary furnishings, innovative brasserie dining and modern artworks are bang on trend. Moat Mews rooms come with pond views, a couple with wonderful over-water balconies. You won't need to set a morning alarm either - resident quacking ducks will do the job for you. Attractive gardens overlooking the moat and pretty duck pond provide the perfect backdrop for afternoon tea with scones hot from the oven. Croquet on the lawn is a wonderful fit for this classic Elizabethan Manor House.

We love the peace and quiet of the landscaped gardens and pretty duck ponds which were once part of the moat.

We love the gorgeous water and wildlife views from our Moat Mews bedroom; go for one with a balcony over the water. The Arundel suite, the former nursery in the eves, is accessed via a narrow staircase and has a huge oval bath with shower over the centre - neat.
