The great charm of The Peacock is that it has been a hotel since 1832 and is a happy combination of chic boutique hotel, with an interior design by India Madhavi, and a traditional sporting inn. It was built in 1652 and for many years was the dower house for the Manners family (and Lord and Lady Edward Manners of Haddon Hall still own the hotel).
