The best places to eat, stay, shop and visit in the South West

A marriage of British grandeur and Middle Eastern-inspired lux, the boutique hotel near Bristol is the ultimate destination for a luxurious retreat

Sarah and Fevzi Arikan bought the 19th century former hospital in 2003 and, after five years of renovation and extravagant interior design, Berwick Lodge has been transformed into a luxury hotel and fine dining restaurant.

VISIT FOR roaring fires and opulent boudoirs – a slice of country house glamour just minutes away from the bustling streets of Bristol. The food offering from head chef Paul O’Neill is just as stylish (and delicious) at the hotel’s two AA-rosette restaurant, Hattusa.

DON’T VISIT for a quick and informal meal. Throw on a posh frock and luxuriate in the theatre of fine dining.

WE LIKED the sumptuous, free-standing bath in the lavish Middle Eastern inspired bathroom.

Insider's tip

Browse the individually styled bedrooms online before your visit and choose the room which best communicates your very fabulous personality. Our room, Troya, was the stuff of Anatolian dreams. That's us.
