Crazy Bear Stadhampton is the original of the group and has been delighting guests since 1993. Just 10 miles from Oxford, this decadent adult hideaway is surrounded by lush gardens in an 80-acre estate of working farmland.
There's the choice of an English and a Thai restaurant at Crazy Bear Stadhampton, while breakfast options include the Full English, kippers and roasted tomatoes, and Continental.
Welsh badger face lamb and Gloucestershire old spot pork are raised on the estate, butchered at the on-site shop and delivered daily to the kitchens, and the same goes for free-range eggs. And products are smoked in-house using oak.
At the heart of the hotel is the 16th-century pub, sympathetically restored with the addition of quirky extras, and open daily.
During the summer months, all menus are available outside on the terrace.
23 bedrooms – individually and lavishly designed – make up this opulent property, including a cottage housing up to 10 guests. Expect gold, silver, crushed velvet, marble, and freestanding, in-room bathtubs.
Available to hotel guests and non-residents, a variation of traditional Thai massage is offered, using a massage bed, rather than the floor, and heated aromatherapy oils.
Meeting rooms can be hired for private dinner parties, celebrations, and cocktail parties. If you're having a gathering for 20 people or more activities can be organised including clay pigeon shooting, falconry, archery, and duck herding.
The bar has more than 30 bottles of champagne on the menu, and they're all half price on Wednesdays; the farm shop has an award-winning deli, butchery, and smokehouse, and was the first in the world to be awarded TSG status (Traditional Specialities Guaranteed).
