Why stay with us

We’re extremely proud of the 18 country houses that we own and manage across the UK. Each has its own individual character, from elegant Georgian mansions to charming seaside houses and hikers’ hotels set in National Parks or Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Each is perfect for walkers, with inspiration points, maps and route guides available along with outstanding accommodation and amenities like swimming pools, elegant gardens, free Wi-Fi and more.

A wide range of accommodation

We believe that choice is the key to the perfect holiday, and the option to treat yourself and relax after a hard day’s walk. Our country houses all have a range of accommodation so you can tailor your stay to the level of comfort you enjoy. You might want a bit more space, a superlative view or a greater degree of privacy, so you can choose from ‘Good’, ‘Better’ or ‘Best Rooms’ in most houses. There’s even an accommodation ‘pod’ you can book in the Lake District for a different sort of experience. We’re sure that we’ll have somewhere that suits you perfectly.

Delicious food and drink

Much like our room types, our food and drink offering is varied and allows you to choose something that you like. With renowned breakfasts to set up the day, a hearty packed lunch that you can pick yourself and a variety of evening meals to suit all tastes and dietary requirements, HF’s kitchens can cater for everybody. Each week our houses also offer a Local Food Evening so you can get a real flavour of the area. All of the country houses include a licensed bar too, so you can enjoy a cracking local ale or sip on a speciality gin.
