Since Imogen Skirving (who, upon her father’s death, turned their family home into a hotel to prevent its loss) died in 2016, Langar Hall has been taken on by her granddaughter Lila, who has managed to preserve the unique experience created by Imogen.
People who stay here feel more like guests in a beautiful Georgian stuccoed country house than customers in a hotel. The library appears to be totally unchanged, with hundreds of books available to leaf through with a drink or two before dinner. The food is superb and the wine list well judged.
The best bedrooms are airy, with furniture appropriate to the house that Imogen wanted to save, and enjoy glorious views of the Vale of Belvoir. For exercise, you can play croquet or stroll round the village church.
Best of all is the friendly atmosphere of this place, surely inherited from Imogen herself. Her’s is a very hard act to follow, but we’ve heard that Lila is stepping up brilliantly.
