Country Houses

Your home from home in the heart of the British countryside

Our UK country houses tailored to walkers

Our 18 Country Houses are nestled within the picturesque Great British countryside and provide you with unique opportunities to make yourself at home, even as you experience life in the great outdoors. Each one has its own individual character - from elegant Georgian mansions to charming seaside houses - and are set within National Parks or Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Each house is perfect for walkers, with inspiration points, maps, route guides and our local expert advice available to tap into. At the end of a day on your walking holiday you can take advantage of our boot room and drying facilities too before enjoying amenities like swimming pools, elegant gardens, free WiFi and more.

We pride ourselves on our outstanding accommodation, and that's reflected in the numerous awards we've won from independent quality assessors, who rate the welcome, hospitality, food and hygiene. And our dedication to sustainability  means that the majority of our houses have already been given a Green Tourism award.

Our team are on hand to look after you like one of the family, so come on in and make yourself at home.
