Even if you've stayed at a thousand luxury hotels, you'll be stunned at the magnificent spectacle of this lovingly restored 14th-century manor on the Channel Island of Jersey. Set in 15 acres at the foot of its own private wooded valley, Longueville Manor makes you feel as if you've come home to your own English country estate.
Each spacious room is uniquely furnished with carefully selected antiques, and is freshened daily with flower arrangements from the manor's private gardens.
Enjoy a game of tennis on the manor's year-round courts, or spend the day simply lounging around the pool or strolling the perimeter of the estate's private lake, home to majestic black swans.
Wandering the leafy country lanes of this enchanted island, you'll happen upon stone cottages that have stood up to the elements for centuries, and fishing villages with townspeople cleaning their catch or mending nets as they have for generations.
