Country Break: Fairytale Escapism at Lucknam Park

Country Break: Fairytale Escapism at Lucknam Park

Thea Lewis-Yates takes a break from London to recharge at Lucknam Park

Imagine stepping through the frame of an idyllic Constable landscape, and there you have it: Lucknam Park. We’re guided to the property by an elegant, mile-long double avenue of 400 beech and lime trees, impossibly verdant after the summer heatwave – an entrance worthy of the opening scene of a Merchant Ivory film. In creamy Cotswold limestone, the handsome late-Georgian mansion sits proudly within 500 acres of countryside. However, the warm and relaxed welcome we receive, alongside the attentive but never intrusive service, seems designed specifically to counter the grandeur of the estate.
