In 1980 Tim and Stefa Hart established Hambleton Hall, one of Britain’s finest country house hotels. The lakeside setting is spectacular and only some two and a half hours north of central London. Michelin, The Good Food Guide, The AA, The Good Hotel Guide, Andrew Harper and others have consistently rated both the hotel and restaurant as amongst the Nation’s very best.
