Re: Fabulous Hotel within 2 hours London

Hambleton Hall on Rutland Water - fabulous, near Oakham- part of Relais and Châteaux:

Rutland is as pretty as the Cotswolds - mellow stone buildings and stony slate roofs- gorgeous landscape and lovely towns like Oakham, Uppingham, Oundle, And Stamford- but without the tourists. Lovely pubs too, including nearby Michelin * The Olive Branch (which has its own B&B too). Could stay at cheaper Barnsdale Lodge, or Barndale Hall which also has fabulous views of the water, great gardens and some easily accessible rooms and studios (make sure you ask for such)- and go for lunch or dinner at the Hall.
