Four Red Stars were given to the stunning Fischer’s Baslow Hall in Derbyshire, which sits at end of a chestnut tree-lined drive on the edge of the Chatsworth Estate. The Blakeney Hotel in Norfolk, which affords superb views across the estuary and salt marshes to Blakeney Point, also received four Red Stars.
