With three very distinct buildings, this refined property offers something for everyone: the main house, fresh from a renovation, offers tastefully appointed rooms with a traditional decor; rooms in the Carriage House have a country house flair, and Stafford Mews houses modern suites that sprawl over seemingly endless square feet. There’s also plenty of choice at the newly launched Lyttelton which focuses on rustic, British cuisine: summer truffle pappardelle, and wild sea bass with heirloom tomatoes.
