About Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, a Belmond Hotel, Oxfordshire
Savour world-class indulgence in the Oxfordshire countryside. Created by celebrated chef Raymond Blanc OBE, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons is one of the country’s most cherished manor house hotels. We received two Michelin stars in 1984, the first year of our opening, and, remarkably, have held them ever since. Surrounded by lawns, flower borders and orchards, our setting is postcard-perfect. But beyond the eye-catching displays are vegetable and herb gardens that provide the kitchen—and the acclaimed Raymond Blanc Cookery School—with ultra-fresh, organic produce. They guarantee our restaurant remains at the cutting edge of culinary excellence.
Each exquisite suite serves up beautiful echoes of Raymond’s travels. Tip-toe into Botticelli to find freestanding Victorian tubs and hand-painted ocean murals. Or reserve Chinoiserie to enjoy a silken slumber among gold-leaf furniture. From the Far East to the Mediterranean, enter your own private fairytale.
Budding chefs are invited to elevate their culinary passions in a fun, informal setting at the Raymond Blanc Cookery School. Besides a personable, hands-on learning experience, students will enjoy a luxurious daily break and lunch in the hotel’s enchanting surrounds. From half-day introductions to residential programmes, dinner party masterclasses to children’s courses, there’s something for every level of foodie.
Join us at one of Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons’s 11 enchanting gardens to receive the expert insights needed for a garden of abundance.
