The Master Suite 1575 is named after Queen Elizabeth I's historic visit and features a grand four-poster bed and stunning views.

Fawsley Hall is also available to host weddings, private dining events and meetings in one of its 7 meeting rooms or Exclusive Knightley Court venue.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Daventry area?

Nestled in the Northamptonshire countryside, Fawsley Hall is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding countryside and attractions. The county is known for boasting more historic houses than any other, including Althorp House, Canons Ashby, Sulgrave Manor and Deene Park, to name a few. For a spot of retail therapy, there is Bicester shopping village and the Heart of the Shires shopping village. For an experience Silverstone racetrack is within a half-hour drive. Being close to the border of Shakespeare’s Warwickshire, there is the lively town Stratford-Upon-Avon to visit. Warwick Castle is also close by and there are many charming Northamptonshire villages and gardens to explore.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

For fine dining, the Cedar Restaurant is situated within the Tudor wing. The inglenook fireplace and flagstone floors sweep down from where the old kitchens once were, offering a relaxed and cosy ambiance to enjoy a 2AA rosette dining experience. A sumptuous breakfast is also served here, with both continental and traditional full English available. For less formal options, the hotel has the Tudor Bar and Lounge and also offers room service. The Tudor Great Hall offers the perfect space to enjoy afternoon teas or a hot drink next to open fire on an autumn day. During warmer months the terraces and courtyard are the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail or snack 'al fresco'!

Top 10 Hotels for Spring Watching by Dinah Hatch

"Sheep, sheep and more sheep. And 2000 acres of rolling Northamponshire greenery. That’s the setting for stunning Tudor Fawsley Hall so expect more than a few lambs gambolling about during your stay. Capability’s Brown’s divine setting, with its manicured beds and sparkling lakes, means a spring break will leave you desperate to move in forever. They’ll even lend you wellies to go yomping through the grounds. Even if you couldn’t drag yourself from the arched beams and extravagant windows of the deeply impressive Great Hall, you’d still take in more than enough spring loveliness from the view. Oh – when you’re done with all that walking – the 29-seater in-house cinema is pretty lovely for a snoozy film session too."

Top 10 Hotels for Country Walks by Adrian Mourby

"Fawsley Hall sits in its own grounds. Indeed these grounds are so huge that the receptionist will provide you with a map for walking round them. The hotel will also provide you with wellington boots, should the going be too muddy outside. You’ll find them lined up in the porch.

The route takes you out across the lawn over the ha-ha (a ditch for keeping grazing sheep visible but not intrusive) and down to the Church of St Mary the Virgin then back through the estate’s extensive woodland.

It’s not a long walk, but it prepares you for afternoon tea in the Tudor Hall which is Fawsley’s USP. It’s two storeys high and full of portraits of British monarchs. There are also plenty of sofas to lounge on and in the autumn and winter there is a fireplace burning logs culled from the 2,000 acres of Fawsley’s grounds.

Dinner is held in the Cedar Restaurant, which is less imposing than the Tudor Hall, being located in the former medieval kitchens. The hotel also offers a spa and swimming pool in the old stable block.

Given the turbulence of British politics – then as now – it’s remarkable that the estate of Fawsley was given to the Knightley family, lawyers working for the English crown, in 1416 and that they never fell out of favour. From Henry V and Henry VI, the last Plantagenets through the time of the Tudors, the Stuarts, Hanoverians and Queen Victoria’s dynasty, the Knightleys were lords of Fawsley up until 1938, a span of 500 years. The last baronet died just before World War II."

Britain's Best Autumn Getaways by Adrian Mourby

"There’s a lot to love about Fawlsey Hall but the feature that will stay in your memory, long after the rest has faded, is its “Tudor” Hall.

This four-star Northamptonshire country house hotel is a mishmash of architectural styles from the medieval to Georgian - and it has all been attractively cobbled together - but the two-storey hall, used during the day for coffee and afternoon tea, has that special wow factor.It is just so big, so tall, so littered with sofas and portraits of British monarchs. And in the autumn there is a real fireplace burning logs culled from the 2,000 acres of Fawsley’s grounds.

The hotel also offers a bar and a conservatory where you can make yourself comfortable and sit down with whatever book has been provided in your room. (Last autumn Fawlsey published exclusive editions of Wuthering Heights for guests to read and take away with them as a souvenir.)

The Knightleys, lawyers working for the English crown, held Fawsley from 1416 in the time of King Henry V until 1938. Richard Knightley, who was knighted by Henry VII, built the first wing of the current house. Despite all the upheavals of English history, the family held Fawsley for over 500 years until the last baronet died just before World War II.

If you can manage it, stay in the Elizabeth I Suite. There’s every reason to believe Good Qeen Bess slept a night or two at Fawlsey though whether this first floor suite existed that time is anybody’s guess. Beyond its gardens the hotel is surrounded by grazing sheep who are kept at bay by that most simple and nifty French invention, the Ha Ha.

There is also a church nearby, St Mary the Virgin and the receptionist will provide you with a map that describes a circular walk out to the church and back through the woods. In the evening dine in the Cedar Restaurant, which is less imposing than the Tudor Hall being located in the former medieval kitchens. The hotel also offers a spa and swimming pool in the old stable block, a 29-seat private cinema and many different sizes of wellington boots for those who want to splash through the English countryside and come back for a hearty and well-deserved meal."

The Best British Festivals this October by Adrian Mourby

"Banbury Folk & Hobby Horse Festival

The Banbury Folk & Hobby Horse Festival started in 2000 as a one-day event but has grown into a full weekend event now, attracting major artists and folk enthusiasts from all over the country. This year it runs 6-8 October with the pedestrianised town centre of Banbury providing a great venue for the “Dance Sides” (Morris teams) and the Hobby Horses to perform on Saturday 7 October.

Major concerts take place at Banbury Town Hall with acoustic Concerts at the Banbury Cross Pub and “Meet the Artists” sessions planned to take place at the Methodist Hall. There are also Song Sessions at the Banbury Cricket Club This year the festival is headlined by Dunblane singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dougie MacLean whose most famous composition is "The Gael" which became the pervasive undercurrent theme to the 1992 film The Last of the Mohicans.

Other performers include The Mighty Doonans, Paula Ryan and the Kevin O’Regan Band with Irish Dancers Katie Smith and Jessica Hutton. There are also song-writing workshops with Dave and Ann Reader and a “Spoons” workshop with Pat Smith & Ned Clamp. We are reliably informed that spoons will be provided.

Fawsley Hall sits 12 miles north of Banbury in a landscaped park created by the Knightley family whose forebear, lawyer Richard Knightley, bought the manor of Fawsley in 1416. His grandson Richard, knighted by Henry VII, built the first wing of the present house.

Despite turbulent times the Knightley family held Fawsley for over 500 years until the last Baronet died in 1938. The hall is now a grand historic hotel owned by Hand Picked Hotels and, of course it is claimed that Elizabeth I stayed here. Even if she didn’t she really should have."

Detox With Less Suffering by Adrian Mourby

"Fawsley Hall in Northamptonshire was occupied by the Knightley family from 1416 until 1913, a remarkable achievement when you consider that Sir Richard Knightley’s family survived the Wars of the Roses, the English Civil War and several bloody regime-changes over almost 500 years. The main house was added to in Georgian and Victorian times but still retains a magnificent Tudor Great Hall at its centre where afternoon tea is very popular. However a new name has now been added to the Fawsley escutcheon, that of Grayshott, the Surrey-based spa company that delivering ?? the treatments in a light and airy new spa. Other brand names that will thrill those seriously addicted to health and well-being include Guinot facial products, Jane Iredale make up, Jessica Full Body Spa and Aromatherapy Associates. There’s also a delightful oak-framed indoor swimming pool that looks out over the spa’s secret garden, an outdoor heated hydrotherapy pool, relaxation room, steam room, and sauna.

This New Year, spa breaks at Fawsley Hall combine lunches for two in the spa and a table d’hote dinner for two in the restaurant as well as two treatments apiece such as shaping and polishing fingernails, tired-eye treatment and full body scrubs.

What would Sir Richard think?"

Great hotels near sporting fixtures by Dinah Hatch

"Just ten miles away from the Silverstone circuit, home to the 2015 British Formula One Grand Prix (July 3-5), Fawsley Hall was bought not long ago by classy operation Handpicked Hotels. The property is jaw-droppingly beautiful – a stately home in every sense, from wonderful family portraits starring down at you in the Great Hall to super-sexy four poster beds in the guest rooms – and you will seriously struggle to leave it behind when you head off to the circuit. Still, nice to know you can return after a day’s cacophony of cars screeching around a track to the warm embrace of a five-star hotel and the glorious Cedar Restaurant. Reason indeed to shake up that jeroboam of champagne…"

Ten luxury Hotels visited by royals by Adrian Mourby

"Elizabeth I saved on the upkeep of the court by lengthy progresses round the country that required her nobles to foot the bill for feeding her household. The queen stayed at the fifteenth-century manor house of Fawsley in 1575 as a guest of the MP, Sir Richard Knightley. Sir Richard later fell from royal favour for secretly printing Puritan tracts at Fawsley Hall. The bedroom Elizabeth is thought to have used – overlooking the Great Hall - is now very popular with brides who book their weddings there."

Top Ten Historic Hotels in the Midlands by Adrian Mourby

"The original 15th-century manor house of Fawsley is at the centre of this hotel with its vaulted great hall and bedroom in which Queen Elizabeth I probably slept. Interestingly the hall was developed in both the Georgian and Victorian periods so today it’s a treasure trove of architectural styles. The oldest part is the kitchen fireplace, removed from a medieval monastery."
