TITCHWELL MANOR, Brancaster, Norfolk is this month’s prizegiver. The former Victorian farmhouse has views across fields and glistening marshes to the sea. Inside, there is a spirit of exuberance and some bold design, which you’ll get a taste of if you have tea by the fire in the jazzy sitting room. Some bedrooms have vintage furniture, perhaps a statement headboard, while others in annexes have a cool, pale coastal palette. The Potting Shed has a remote-controlled log-burner, and an in-room roll-top bath. Two signature rooms have a hot tub. In the conservatory, owner Eric Snaith and head chef Chris Mann use local and foraged ingredients in such dishes as brill, oyster and horseradish sauce, quail egg and baked potato mash. The lagoons of Titchwell Marsh RSPB nature reserve are nearby.
All you need to do to win this handsome prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at Titchwell Manor is to SEND A REVIEW of your favourite hotel or B&B in Great Britain or Ireland. We welcome reports on places that have never been in the Guide or have been omitted, as well as those that have a current entry.
Ian Dewey from Bath is the winner of last month’s prize of dinner, bed, and breakfast for two at THE GREEN PARK, Pitlochry, Scotland. In lawned gardens lapped by Loch Faskally, the McMenemie family’s Victorian country house hotel caters to evergreen guests who enjoy a gentler pace of life. Wildlife spotters are encouraged to pick up binoculars, and to jot down sightings in a nature diary that lives on the piano in the main lounge. There is a nine-hole putting green and, indoors, a jigsaw puzzle always on the go. Activity breaks of the gentler kind include cryptic crossword puzzles, Scrabble and creative writing. Before dinner, guests mingle over complimentary sherry. Trusted readers enjoyed a ‘delicious, succulent fillet of Orkney salmon with a sweet pepper salad and new potatoes’. Most bedrooms – in the main house and purpose-built wings – overlook the loch. Some have a balcony; 16 are on the ground floor.
