10 Best Luxury Getaways In The English Countryside


Everyone has a different version of their perfect day in the English countryside. Cream teas on the lawns, basking in the English sunshine. Watching a polo match and then popping on Hunter wellies for a walk to your nearest country pub for a pint of local ale. Nosing around chocolate box villages, picking up antiques and local produce before retiring to an immaculate country house retreat. Here is our pick of the 10 best luxury getaways in the English countryside.

Our first choice is the beautifully refurbished Oakhouse 1 boutique hotel in the pretty village of Tetbury. Described by TATLER as “The Notting Hill of Gloucestershire .. a little rock ‘n’ roll…a little country classic .. the vibe is fizzy French house party” and equally popular with THE GUARDIAN “We are spirited into a fantasy world, a collision of colour, modern design and trad sumptuousness”, this gorgeous boutique hotel has it all. Enjoy Nicola’s homemade scones and cakes served with tea in their garden – you will feel like you are staying with dear friends at their country home.

Our second choice is The Four Seasons Hampshire, which is a superbly refurbished country manor on top of a hill. It offers so much to do; shooting, riding, biking, walking swimming, spa.. and has reliable Four Seasons quality decor and rooms with the classic Four Seasons bathrooms.

Sitting in position three is the Mount in Somerset. This historic country house sits on a hill overlooking fields of sheep.
