Situated in picturesque Oxfordshire, it is one of the country's most cherished manor house hotels.
Surrounded by lawns, flower borders and orchards, the luxury hotel enjoys an idyllic, typically English setting. But beyond the eye-catching displays are vegetable and herb gardens that provide the kitchen—and the acclaimed Raymond Blanc Cookery School.
The Lowdown Venue Setting

1984 saw the opening of the hotel, combining breathtaking surroundings with gastronomic excellence.
"I had in mind a small house in the country, but I fell in love with Great Milton Manor, set in 30 acres. With the help of a few friends it was transformed into a magnificent country house hotel."
Raymond aimed to create a place where guests could relax and savour the surroundings. Working with some of the best interior designers in the UK, he transformed the rooms into stylish and unique palaces.
The restaurant swiftly earned two Michelin stars the year of its opening, and, remarkably, has held them ever since. Stunning gardens are the envy of botanists worldwide. The Raymond Blanc Cookery School, opened in 1991, attracts a constant stream of budding chefs.
Standout Venue Features:
Raymond is known globally for his passion for seasonal, organic produce. When sourcing food for his restaurant, he makes sure to know everything about its provenance. Rarely can a chef tell you exactly where the milk in your breakfast came from.
With his dedicated gardeners, he has cultivated herb beds in which 70 traditional and exotic varieties thrive. A two-acre vegetable garden produces over 90 types of vegetable. A mushroom garden sprouts around 20 edible species, and an orchard brings in beautiful apples, pears and quinces.
He champions an ethical approach to cooking and is devoted to energy efficiency and recycling. Belmond Le Manoir is viewed by many in the hotel and restaurant industry as the model to aspire to.
Extra Perks: Each of the 32 bedrooms are individually designed. Expect striking marble bathrooms, hand-painted wallpaper, discover a unique sanctuary designed by Raymond Blanc. Hotel comforts combine with imaginative decor to stunning effects. Luxurious terraces provide extra space to unwind in. Each is a haven of fantasy, created using the most indulgent materials.
