Our Inspector's view

Not every hotel within striking distance of Gatwick bears the marks of corporate anonymity. A Tudor mansion faced in exquisitely laid red brickwork with original beams and mullioned windows is a sight for travel-weary eyes if ever there was, not least for its garden tables under the trees, and Langshott's Elizabethan interiors – all low ceilings and blazing fireplaces – have been discreetly augmented with the accoutrements of the modern hotel. In the Mulberry Restaurant, views over the grounds are a welcome complement to Phil Dixon's assured and stylish country-house cooking. A gentle richness characterises many of his dishes, meats are out of the top drawer and desserts aim to seduce with lashings of chocolate, caramel and coffee in the enveloping forms of mousses and soufflés, or there might be roasted peanut parfait, with ‘textures of banana’ – that’s caramelised, dried and in the form of banana cake.

About the area

Discover Surrey

Surrey may be better known for its suburbia than its scenery, but the image is unjust. Over a quarter of the county’s landscapes are official Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and along the downs and the greensand ridge you can gaze to distant horizons with hardly a building in sight. This is one of England’s most wooded counties, and has more village greens than any other shire. You’ll find sandy tracks and cottage gardens, folded hillsides and welcoming village inns. There’s variety, too, as the fields and meadows of the east give way to the wooded downs and valleys west of the River Mole.

Of course there are also large built-up areas, mainly within and around the M25; but even here you can still find appealing visits and days out. On the fringe of Greater London you can picnic in Chaldon’s hay meadows, explore the wide open downs at Epsom, or drift idly beside the broad reaches of the stately River Thames. Deep in the Surrey countryside you’ll discover the Romans at Farley Heath, and mingle with the monks at England’s first Cistercian monastery. You’ll see buildings by great architects like Edwin Lutyens and Sir George Gilbert Scott, and meet authors too, from John Donne to Agatha Christie.
