Europe, United Kingdom

Dust off your hiking boots: blessed with undisturbed coastlines and postcard-perfect views, England is a playground for rural enthusiasts. Crackling fireplaces, indulgent country pubs and top-notch spas beckon after long days of rambling and rock-pooling. If you’re more world cuisine than wellies, London’s well-heeled haunts, on-trend bars and cultural temples await, but the country’s under-the-radar cities can be just as charming.

A stay in the Cotswolds offers a taste of bucolic life: ramble across rolling hills and well-kept forests, while afternoons away in pretty market towns and sample the region’s seasonal fare in gourmet pubs and seriously good restaurants.
South East of England Hotels
There’s no denying windswept beaches and hillside trails are the perfect antidote to urban stresses: cosy up in a stylish country inn or elegant seaside bolthole for a restorative break away.
