Luxury Hotels in England
Country House Hotels

Country houses are something quintessentially English. With their impressive lawns and gardens and acres of indoors space, many have been rescued from an ignominious death and turned into hotels.

And country house hotels in England really are amazing if you like to be pampered.

Whether you're after a traditional break - think slap-up meals in a restaurant overlooking a croquet lawn - or you want to get re-energised with an expert spa treatment, these stately rural retreats are the way to go.

Escape the noise and bustle of the city to while away days surrounded by fresh country air and verdant scenery - there really is no better way to unwind with a loved one or the family.

Stoke Park Club

Scenes for Bridget Jones's Diary were filmed at this vast country pile, and it's not hard to see why - it has it all, including golf courses, a boating lake and spa.

Babington House

Country playground for the London media crowd en famille - kids love the acres of parkland surrounding the handsome house. The Cowshed Spa is so good it's practically an institution.

The Samling

Overlooking Lake Windermere, this private, intimate hotel offers romantic rooms with huge deep bathtubs and breath-taking views.

Swinton Park

Fine dining, the stunning Yorkshire Dales right on your doorstep and bedrooms with super-cosy four posters make this country house wonderfully sumptuous and evocative.

Charlton House

A seasonal, local and organic menu makes Modern British dining at this Shepton Mallet country house a real buzz. Check in for fab spa services and rooms with private gardens and four-posters.

Thornbury Castle

One of the best luxury hotels in England! A Tudor castle with oak and antique interiors, full of butlers and suits of armour: the perfect escape from humdrum city life.

Country House Hotels are the cream of luxury hotels in England. If you'd like to be treated as if you were lord or lady of all you survey, spend a long weekend in one. You won't be disappointed.
