From snug cabin by the sea to place of enchantment...

Living just around the corner from Mount Stewart Estate KIRSTY JOHNSTON and her husband are frequent visitors and were some of the first visitors through the doors of the newly restored mansion…

AFTER a three year £8 million restoration project, the magnificent neo-classical Mount Stewart House now reflects the 1920 to 1950 era, when Charles, the 7th Marquess of Londonderry, and his wife Edith, Lady Londonderry, made it their much-loved Irish home.

CITY OF ARTISTIC AND CULTURAL MAGNIFICENCE

BY ROBIN NOWACKI

ANTWERP, with 500,000 people, is Belgium’s second largest city after Brussels, and decidedly Flemish in character, though different to Flanders’ other fine historic cities - as for centuries it has also been a major port with a large docklands area, linked to the North Sea by canal.

A luxury hotel and a good wine!

After a ‘wine-themed’ hotel break in Berkshire ANDREA McVEIGH and her husband were left with only one question - which wine would go best with toast?

WHEN two of my favourite things in life - a luxury hotel and a good wine - come together in one package, I was sold. They had me at just the mention of wine, to be honest, but The Vineyard Hotel near Newbury, Berkshire, has so much more to offer. A spa, rated by the Good Spa Guide as one of the very best in the UK; a destination restaurant presided over by award-winning chef Daniel Galmiche; an impressive art collection and a beautiful location, to name but a few.
