Escape the humdrum and enter a different world. This is English country-house living where candles once sealed letters, gamekeepers reared pheasants for society shoots, and chauffeurs moved the aristocracy around castles in the Home Counties, London and the Highlands according to the social and sporting season.
Mount Offham in Kent sleeps 14 in seven opulent bedrooms. So you can get all the folks together (plus dogs) and live a grander life where the curtains swag, the chandeliers glint and the beds come with a post in each corner. Outside, the lawns are set for croquet, and dinner is served on the terrace by the heated pool.
