Le Manoir

We say
If you love cooking and fine dining, a visit to Raymond Blanc's Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons is something approaching a pilgrimage. You can dine at this 15th-Century manor house in Oxfordshire, but it's so much lovelier to stay a night or two, walk around the orchards and famous herb garden and perhaps take a course at the cookery school or gardening school. The food, of course, is sensational and Monsieur Blanc is often on site, chatting with diners.

Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons says

It’s the passion of our maitre de maison, Raymond Blanc, that permeates every corner of this special little corner of Oxfordshire.

  • Impeccable food
  • Cookery school
  • Beautiful rooms

Since opening in 1984, we have been awarded 2 Michelin Stars each and every year. It is Raymond’s distinctive and delicious cuisine which draws guests from around the world and it is the warmth, gentle buzz and unstuffy but impeccable service which makes the entire dining experience such a delight.

The manor house dates back to the 15th century and boasts glorious flower beds, vegetable and herb gardens, orchards and a mushroom valley which, each day, inspire Raymond’s creative, seasonal menus.

The hotel has 32 rooms and suites, each individually designed. Their evocative names reflect a hint of what to expect such as Mimosa, Botticelli, Chinoiserie and Anais. They have garden or courtyard views and some have a private terrace.

The Raymond Blanc Cookery School offers a range of courses from half-days to longer residential options – patisserie, gluten-free menus and Maman Blanc’s traditional recipes for example.

Learn all manner of tips with a course at the Raymond Blanc Gardening School, from growing micro-herbs and edible flowers to Japanese garden traditions.
