Located in Sonoma County, this intimate family-run property started out as a humble B&B, and retains that personal feel. Though there's nothing humble about the accommodation, which in true Ralph Lauren fashion has taken an English look and done it better than the original.

Will, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

There are just 25 supremely comfortable and romantic suites at Farmhouse Inn. The country cottages are surprisingly spacious inside, some with fireplaces and private decks on which to relax with a chilled glass of the valleys finest vino. The owners have recently added a barn house, in which the rooms are even more gorgeous. Think four-poster beds, tasteful art, light grey walls, outside private space, slanted ceilings - it feels almost like being in a treehouse.

There is a heated pool, jacuzzi and also a full spa with excellent spa products in the lobby that guests can sample, but the piece de resistance is the Michelin-starred restaurant that many people know far more about than the hotel. The service is as good as anywhere in the wine region, and the wine list also suitably excellent.

Excellent service is key at Farmhouse Inn, and the knowledgable concierge team can arrange a host of activities including wine tastings, trips to the beach, golf, riding, hikes and bicycle hire among other things, as well as make restaurant recommendations and reservations, should you tear yourselves away from the delights of the Farmhouse Inn Restaurant.

Why we love it
