Set on a farm, this elegant country house offers gracious living and a relaxed environment. The very large bedrooms (most set around a courtyard) are strikingly individual in style, with great attention to detail and comfort. The billiard room has a comprehensive honesty bar, and the panelled dining room, with magnificent 15-seater table, is the setting for excellent meals. Sporting access to 25,000 acres makes this a great place for fishing and outdoor breaks. Click to read The Guardian's full review of Craigadam.
