At Chic Retreats all our hotels have stories behind them, however many also have a fascinating history to boot. Charming Cornish castles, the former estate of the Machiavelli family, 15th-century dove towers and Oscar Wilde’s final resting place all feature in our rare and remarkable collection of historical hotels. Soak up the atmospheric surroundings and wonder at the secrets those ancient walls must have witnessed.
