luxury escape to Rushton Hall

{luxury weekend getaway} via chevrons & éclairs

see a new land…

We got on a train from St. Pancras International, a little secluded area of the station that wasn’t bustling like the other parts-just perched in one corner with a sweet cafe by its side. We grabbed a baguette and green juice for the ride over and by the time lunch was consumed, we were in Kettering. Whenever I get off at any station in the UK, I get worried that I’ve entered a horror film as everything is so… dare I say creepy?

Alas, we got a taxi and made our way to the Rushton Hall-a mere 15 minute drive away from the concrete and city exhaust. On the drive over highway paved roads, building scenes were replaced with lush greens, the noise of horses galloping and a small village that seemed misplaced in time. The gates opened and we drove up to a magnificent building and it was as if it was waiting there just for us.

Greeted by the bellman and subsequently helped to the Duke’s room, we had a little corner of the mansion to ourselves. Solely ours with a 4-poster bed and clawfoot bathtub. There was light coming from every window that entertained scenes of greenery and nothing else. It was like we were all alone, no one else, and that’s just what we needed.

engaged with luxury

Through hallways with red carpets and corners adorned with paintings, we made our way to the spa. My toes were excited to hit the bottom of a pool and then relax in the outdoor jacuzzi that was encased with gardens and birds’ singing. It was a sanctuary.

After an afternoon spent reading in a nook of our room, I got ready with the afternoon sun and right with the sun had set the golden drape unleashed a whole new feeling and atmosphere that surrounded Rushton Hall and its gardens. With a champagne in hand we decided it was time to make our way to the great hall that inspired many Charles Dickens’ stories. Who knew the dining experience in Kettering offered such an innovative flavor combinations, we were completely spoilt. Course-after-course then some petit fours accompanied with a glass of cheeky port, it was all too good to be true.

In reality…

The best was yet to come. We headed back to the Duke’s room. I kicked off my heels and transitioned into my robe quite easily and made way to the bath. The room was perfumed with roses and a slight musk as the hot bath was close to ready. I felt as if, for once, there was nothing in the world that I needed to think or worry about. Closed eyes, fingers flirting with the water, steam strolling up my nose, it’s what bliss felt like…

Special thanks to Rushton Hall for the stay and Chef Adrian Coulthard for the dinner. As always, all views and narratives are my own. To book your luxury countryside escape in Kettering, be sure to visit Rushton Hall.

    I feel like all of England is a little (or a lot) bit haunted/creepy! Which is exactly why I need to spend more time there. This estate looks stunning and that tub makes me wish I had a historic home so that I could have put a claw foot tub in my bath instead of a modern soaker!

    • IT’S EXACTLY WHY YOU NEED TO VISIT! I literally get super scared when I get off a train station and there is nothing but pasture and sheep… #WheresTheConcrete

  • Sarah

    Supal, these photos are absolutely beautiful! I want to go to the countryside!

  • Ok… so how much would I have to pay to just LIVE in Rushton Hall? The photos are so dreamy… even if they could be creepy. 😉

    • HAHAHA. I’ll call reservation management and let you know, yeah? So pleased to hear you like the photos, such a sweet compliment coming especially from you!

    This is exactly what I picture when I think of the English countryside. Like exactly this. What a quiet place to stay.

  • L.G.

    Can you suggest how long to stay at one of these manors?

    • I don’t think a 1 night stay is too short, which is what I end up taking. Go during the week as these manors are less crowded. But if you’re looking for a proper detox then go for 2 nights. Rushton Hall has an assortment of activities you can participate in if you want to stay longer 🙂 Email me if you have any other questions!
