Five UK Bank Holiday Getaways

With the four day bank holiday on the horizon, we thought it was the perfect excuse to share with you some of the best getaway hotspots. Sampling some of the UK’s best hotels and houses, we have curated a list of to-die-for places so you can make the most of a much needed long weekend and really switch off. Here are our top five UK bank holiday getaways… 

While we are on the subject of British holidays, with weather always being a hot topic, we have also provided a wardrobe road map that will work for you wherever you visit.

#1 The Newt – Somerset

A working country estate is a home to a luxury hotel The Newt, surrounded by gardens, woodland, farmland and a cyder orchard. Transporting you to idyllic rural living, the Georgian limestone building has kept its original beauty.

Enjoy garden tours, cyder tasting, deer park walks, spa retreatments and more for the perfect few days away.

#2 Killiehuntly Farmhouse – Scotland 

In a cosy restored farmhouse and surrounding cottages, you can enjoy time away in the heart of Scotland’s Cairngorm National park. With simplistic, timeless interior spaces and breathtaking landscapes,  Killiehuntly Farmhouse is a great destination if you want to have some peace and quiet.

If you want to really submerge yourself and embrace this spring/summer, why not book something to remember such as a pony picnic, 4×4 tour or wild swimming if you’re feeling brave! 

Outdoor essentials: 

#3 Bibury Farm Barns – Cotswolds 

Looking for something a little bigger?

The Bibury Farm Barns are the ultimate UK getaway, whether it’s you and all of the family or a big group of friends. Located in the heart of the Cotswolds with five converted barns you are surrounded by rolling countryside and plenty of outdoor seating areas to take in the view. Newly renovated with stunning interiors, the latest gadgets and exposed brick and beams running throughout this is the type of place you won’t need to leave. 

Spa & Swimming: 

#4 Guest House Hotel – Bath 

The Guest House Hotel is a Georgian townhouse located on one of baths grandest streets in Bath city centre. There are 37 bedrooms in the main townhouse, with no room the same.

There’s a restaurant and bar for you to enjoy in the evenings and spa facilities, so why not enjoy an organic facial or copper bath for two so you can really relax during the day.

#5 The Rectory Hotel – Cotswolds

Located on the edge of the Cotswolds this beautiful old rectory hotel with 18 luxury bedrooms is the perfect getaway.

There is a highly recommended restaurant in the hotel serving your favourite cocktails and you can wander down to the pub The Potting Shed. There are also well-kept gardens you can peacefully explore and a swimming pool to enjoy.
