Lucknam Park was, by far, one of the most exceptional places I have ever stayed in terms of atmosphere and service. It was like stepping back into time, when travel included world-class service in the comfort of an extremely well appointed home. The entire staff, from managers to equestrian staff, made us feel welcome and well cared for every moment of our stay. Everyone went out of his or her way to cater to our every need. The 500 acres of Lucknam Park are MAGNIFICENT! The property is lush and green and ready to be explored and enjoyed by foot, horse, bike, cart, and/or just as a feast for the eyes. The approach to the manner house is blanketed by two double rows of mature trees, which form a mile long natural umbrella. (The underside of which is well over one hundred feet high and was once used to camouflage airplanes for the Royal British Air Force.) And, yes it does protect you; so don’t worry if you get caught out in the rain! The Park has a wonderful English garden that is surrounded by a very tall old brick wall. Once inside, you can enjoy traditional plantings beds and sculptures in tranquility. Inside the manner, traditional and antique furnishing make guests feel as if they are returning to a country home that has “been in the family” for generations. Afternoon tea as well as pre and post dinner drinks are served by wonderful staff members dressed in formal attire. The food in both the Brasserie and Formal Dinning Room is second to none. Just delicious! However, perhaps even more impressive is the impeccable service. Before you even ask, there is someone ready to meet your every need, with a welcoming smile! (I can only imagine how great the cooking school is.) While at Lucknam be sure to take advantage of the wonderful spa and equestrian center. You can also enjoy archery, skeet shooting, and falconry on the beautiful grounds as well. Riding through the countryside is truly breathtaking! Be sure to visit, the city of Bath (home to ancient the Romans and Jane Austin) and Castle Combe (village where they filmed Dr. Doolittle.) They are well worth the short car rides away from the property. This was one of my most favorite vacation spots ever! I loved Lucknam Park as well as every member of its outstanding service team! Our vacation was PERFECT and I would return annually, if I could!
