Accommodation at our UK country houses
All holidays at our country houses are full board with breakfast, picnic lunch and an evening meal included.
- Start your day with our extensive breakfast. Choose from a wide selection on the cold buffet and/or a full cooked breakfast. Maybe enjoy a lighter option of fruit and yoghurt followed by scrambled egg, go for porridge followed by a full English breakfast, or select something in between
- Choose from our famous self-select picnic lunches - everything you need to keep you going on a day outdoors. Your own choice of sandwiches is prepared to order, and you can add crisps and snacks, fruit, nuts, chocolate bars, sweets and biscuits as you wish. Our house-based Leisure Activities include an in-house lunch (generally soup, sandwiches etc)
- The relaxed dinner is a highlight of any stay at our country houses. With tables seating up to 10 and no seating plan, it offers a great opportunity to get to know your fellow guests. There is always a choice of dishes for every course, featuring good British cooking and often local specialities
Our UK houses also offer upgraded bedrooms. Our Better and Best rooms come with extra room or better views to enjoy during your holiday. You can also check into your room earlier (from 1 p.m.)
Upgrade to a Better room from £15 per night
Upgrade to a Best room from £20 per night

Accommodation in our Overseas Partner Hotels
Dining in Europe:
Our holidays in Europe are all half board with breakfast and evening meals included. Most hotels offer a breakfast buffet, which sometimes will include hot dishes or regional specialities. In the evenings, our partner hotels offer either served or buffet meals (please see specific holiday pages to see what’s on offer at each location). There’ll generally be a choice of dishes; with some offering a set menu and where possible there will be regional dishes to ensure you can enjoy the local flavours.
Dining on a Worldwide holiday
We don't always follow a set half-board meal plan on our Worldwide holidays. This is to ensure we can offer flexibility and gain maximum cultural emmersion for our guests, allowing them to go and sample local cuisine of their choice.
Lunch on an overseas holiday
Most guests buy ingredients for a picnic lunch at a local shop or supermarket, allowing you to further sample the local flavours. For instance, you may wish to enjoy a morning visit to a local bakery, sample cured meats or add a sweet pastry to your lunch box for a mid-walk treat – however there’s sometimes an opportunity to eat at a local cafe, tavern or mountain hut whilst on your walks and excursions.
