The feeling that you’ve stepped into a 19th-century novel is no accident. Beyond the fact that the hotel is Thomas Hardy designed, the 24 rooms are decorated in florals, fabrics, and wallpapers to provide a homey English setting like no other. A stroll through the adjacent deer park will complete the literary fantasy, as will expert, unobtrusive service.
