It’s the age-old question when it comes to a weekend break. Live it up in the city? Or retreat to the country? At Langton Park, set in beautiful Wiltshire greenery, we managed to do both. This 18th Century Grade II listed mansion (pictured) has received the love and care of Tarquin Gorst and his family and their part-time home is now available through Loyd & Townsend-Rose, whose directors Jonathan Townsend-Rose and Andrew Loyd greet us at the house with an afternoon tea around the outdoor pool.
Gorst himself knows a thing or two about hospitality – having partnered with Guy Ritchie in The Punchbowl pub and Marco Pierre White’s new Rainbow Inn in West Sussex. Andrew and Jonathan leave the chefs (an extra cost to the £30,000 per week you pay to hire the house) to do the cooking while we explore the beautiful house, which sleeps 14. Later we discover the little club the Gorsts have set up in their basement and Gorst’s son DJ’s for us as the drinks flow from the cellar bar. The next day, a brisk walk with local forager Chris Park of Acorn Education clears the head. All part of the LTR service.This entry was posted in Press & Media .
