With hotels from Jersey to Surrey, Kent and Edinburgh – there is guaranteed to be a Hand Picked Hotel near you. Below is a selection of hotels to choose from:

Hendon Hall Hotel in Hendon, North London, is ideal for those wishing to enjoy a relaxing stay in a mansion with terraced gardens, yet have easy access to central London and the surrounding areas. The hotel offers 57 bedrooms - a mixture of classic, executive and four-poster bedrooms as well as junior suites – and the award-winning Garrick Restaurant serves excellent food and drink and has been awarded two rosettes by the AA.

Tucked away behind beautiful woodland and surrounded by seven acres of grounds, Audleys Wood Hotel, Basingstoke, Hampshire is the perfect countryside retreat. For those seeking culinary heaven, for a small supplement guests can dine in the old dining hall of the hotel, now the award-winning Simonds Restaurant.

Alternatively, visit the 800 year old New Hall Hotel & Spa, Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, reputed to be one of the oldest inhabited, moated manor houses in England, and enjoy a glass of Champagne overlooking 26 acres of elegant grounds. After sympathetic restoration, the historic hotel boasts modern facilities and comforts, including a spa, but retains its medieval charm.
