Why do I love Queens House? There is a pretty long list, right a the top however has to be the indoor pool in the converted barn, with the huge doors opening up onto the courtyard terrace. If you're lucky enough to be a guest here, 'The Coach House' is beautiful enough to put most boutique hotels to shame!
