Our favourite rooms
Each Rosé Suite has a little private terrace with uninterrupted views of the vineyards. But splash out on a Sparkling Suite to for a choice of two private hot tubs: an alfresco number on the terrace and a sunken tub in the ensuite bathroom.
The large, outdoor pool is unheated and framed by a sunlounger-lined terrace and shade-providing trees. There’s also a heated freshwater pool in the spa.
Open from August 2018, Gillham's Wine Spa is at the edge of the vineyards and offers a range of grape-infused holistic treatments. Book a classic massage in one of the three treatments rooms, sip on a freshly pressed juice from the bar and take a soak in the vino-therapy wine bath, which looks out over the estate.
Bring your swimsuits, and sensible shoes fit for tromping around the vine-crossed grounds. (Pack your riding boots if you’re a horsey type, too.)
Although the common areas are all on the ground floor, the hotel does not have accessible guest rooms.
Leave the littles at home: this wine-soaked stay is for adults only.
