South Lodge hotel and spa: A divine oasis in one of England's most stunning national parks


The Food

As expected in a hotel of this calibre, there are a few options for food. We returned to the spa area for dinner, home to Botanica restaurant. 

Robes are welcome in the day, but the mediterranean restaurant steps it up a gear at night. 

There was plenty of choice for me, a vegetarian, but my meat-eating partner was also well catered for. In keeping with holistic surroundings, the food leaned towards healthy – although indulgence was on offer in the form of dessert. Chocolate and cheesecake and sundae, oh my! 

For breakfast the next morning, we opted for the opulence of a full English in the room. Eating at our dining table looking out onto the green lawns, Radio 3 playing in the background, was heaven. For those feeling more sociable, breakfast is usually served in Camellia restaurant, which is also open for formal dining in the evenings.
