The grand, ivory Regency frontage of this Cheltenham manor belies the super-slick decor and all mod-cons behind the scenes, which brings it closer in concept  to the owner's swishy Upper House Hotel in Hong Kong.

There are 60 bedrooms, as well as a soothing REN spa for prepping and pampering, and vows can be exchanged in the Drawing Room.

For your first night, it's a no-brainer: book the über-cool Penthouse, with its very own staircase and entrance for total privacy, and a terrace with views over the rooftops towards the Cotswold hills.

Ceremony capacity: 16; Packages per person: £32
