A wedding breakfast designed by Raymond Blanc? Yes, please! Even better, to celebrate its anniversary, Le Manoir has just opened its new La Belle Epoque Conservatory at the heart of this country home and two-Michelin-starred restaurant.
The bright, open and cheerfully contemporary space overlooks the 15th-century manor house's original garden and has its own secluded entrance for utter privacy. Marry in the lavender-scented gardens, tuck into a fabulous menu and then retire to a plush suite.
