Hambleton Hall

The Timeless Escape

Ketton Road, Oakham LE15 8TH

In a time when there is a growing expectation for new British country houses to find a kind of novelty or niche to justify their conception, Hambleton Hall presents a deeply comforting respite. Devoid of shabby chic embellishments or Scandinavian flourishes, this Victorian stately home, overlooking Rutland Water, is a national treasure that has been run by the same family for decades.

Guests craving a futuristic spa or holistic workshops programme should look elsewhere. Hambleton Hall is a place for impeccable service and lavishly long lunches. A six-course tasting menu sees Red Mullet paired with a sumptuous Bouillabaisse Sauce, while the more seasonally driven ‘Gourmet corner’ features Venison with Black Garlic Risotto and decadent 100% Valrhona Chocolate. Simply put, the restaurant is exquisite – it has deservedly held a Michelin star for almost 40 years, which is longer than any other restaurant in the UK.

The flower-filled gardens, with their winding hedge paths and intimate natural alcoves, make for an optimum position to enjoy spectacular views of the lake. Inside the house itself, timeless interiors featuring wooden panels and vibrant upholstery are brought to life by a roaring fire. A place where time stands still.
