Beautiful Brocket Hall

The Brocket Estate in Hertfordshire is home to the imposing Brocket Hall, one of the country’s loveliest stately homes.


In the beautiful grounds you will find the Melbourne Lodge, where guests can stay in one of 16 luxurious country house style rooms.  From the window of my spacious room I had views of the lodge itself, the lovely lake with swans and geese and the lush parkland. The bedrooms are elegantly decorated with cool ivory drapes and some original period pieces from the Estate itself. There are huge comfortable beds, a stylish bathroom and lots of special touches, such as tiny bottles of fresh milk to have with my morning cuppa.

I risked dodging golf balls to explore the grounds and took a scenic stroll down to the stylish Auberge du Lac, the recently refurbished restaurant set in the estate’s former hunting lodge.

I kicked off my evening with a Negroni in the relaxing Lounge Bar. There is a lovely alfresco terrace next to the lake which would have been idyllic had the weather permitted.
