GRAVETYE MANOR, East Grinstead, Sussex, is this month’s prizegiver. An Elizabethan manor house surrounded by woodland, it has one of the most beautiful gardens in the country. A former César winner, its luxurious bedrooms, some with a four-poster, have many thoughtful touches including home-made biscuits. The chef, George Blog, has a Michelin star for his creative cuisine with dishes such as partridge and veal sweetbreads.
All you need to do to win this handsome prize of a night’s dinner, bed and breakfast for two at Gravetye 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.
Steven Hur from Winchester is the winner of last month’s prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at GLIFFAES, Crickhowell, Wales. Winner of an Editor’s Choice fishing award, this Victorian vicar’s house above the River Usk, run by three generations of the same family, has a timeless quality. The chef uses seasonal, local and home-grown produce for his imaginative, modern Welsh menu. Bedrooms have a period country house style; a Delft-tiled fireplace, an antique desk or a balcony.
