Hand Picked for You

When Julia and Guy Hands established Hand Picked Hotels, their vision was clear: to provide a luxurious and magical guest experience with warmth, passion and creativity.

Two decades later, our stunning collection of 21 family-owned luxury country houses and coastal resorts continues to bring that vision to life.

Architecturally exquisite and boasting a noble British heritage, every hotel is committed to delivering exceptional hospitality. Whether hosting a business event, joining us for an indulgent spa treatment or celebrating a special family milestone in one of our award-winning restaurants, you are always in safe hands.

From stunning Channel Island seascapes and expansive countryside views of rural England to enchanting woodlands and breathtaking Scottish hills, an unrivalled atmosphere of relaxed indulgence and first-class service is assured with every stay.

Each hotel shares an unwavering commitment to supporting the local communities they call ‘home’ – and that will never change. Our talented chefs are passionate about curating exquisite dishes showcasing the finest locally sourced produce, and we are unique in offering our own Villa Saletta wines produced at Hand Picked’s boutique Tuscan winery.

Whether you are visiting us for the first time or we are welcoming you back, we look forward to seeing you.
