Stay in a castle
Langley Castle is a 14th-century luxury fortified castle, set in its own 10-acre woodland estate; its 7-foot-thick walls and individually designed bedrooms provide a peaceful refuge in which to escape from today's hustle and bustle. Want to know what it feels like to be a queen or a king? You have found your place. The first time I walked inside Langley I was completely blown away by the richness of the inner stonewalls of that castle. The staff is top-class.Book here
