What do you buy the person who has everything? The person that’s hard to buy for. And the person you’d most like to spoil, surprise and celebrate, from birthdays and anniversaries to a spontaneous treat. Your search for something special ends here.
With our special offers, you could escape the city for countryside extravagance that won’t break the bank. In fact, it could cost you nothing – enter our competition and you could enjoy a one-night stay, A la Carte dinner for two and breakfast with our compliments. Just 90 minutes north of London via the A1 from Swiss Cottage to Stamford – your weekend retreat awaits you in rural Rutland. Intimate and intriguing, Hambleton Hall has the style and sophistication of a five-star venue, without the scale. We know our guests by name, and our experienced team guarantee the highest level of personal service. From the moment you arrive you will feel like you have come home.
Follow in the footsteps of the glitterati: authors, actors, artists, composers and socialites who all chose Hambleton as their home-from-home. Enchanted by the atmosphere and stunning views over Rutland Water and the rolling hills. Enjoy Aaron’s creative menu in the dining room which overlooks the lake, where the landscape’s changing view feels as though it was painted for your eyes only.
“Little has changed since this former private home became a hotel. You’ll find roaring fires, huge armchairs and wood panelling but no stuffy atmosphere.” Writes Josephine Price in National Geographic.
Choose from 17 unique rooms ranging from intermediate and superior to master suites and our spacious croquet pavilion: a two bedroomed suite adjacent to the main manor house. Complete with its own sitting room and breakfast room, dine in private and open the French doors onto the glorious grounds.
Whatever the season, you are guaranteed a warm welcome. Stand at the front door, look up and read the words ‘Fay Ce Que Voudras’ carved in stone above your head. They mean ‘Do as you please’, a mantra observed by all who enjoy Hambleton and an open invitation for the duration of your stay. Hambleton’s charms are hard to resist. The warm fires in winter, as you sip aperitifs by crackling flames in the bar, to the sunlit walks of a summer’s evening seeking Ospreys, kingfishers and sand martins. From calming country walks around the Hambleton Peninsula to groves of ancient oaks, leisurely games of croquet or tennis to the more thrill-seeking sports of cycling, free-water swimming, rock climbing and the UK’s largest inflatable water park, adventures await you.
Please note that a two-night stay is the minimum required over a weekend.
