We love seeing our guests' experience when they stay at a Hand Picked Hotel. Here are some of the lovely things our friends have said on Instagram about their time in a Hand Picked Hotel.

Stacy & family - What Stacy Did

Stacy visited Stanbrook Abbey in Worcester with her family including her daughter Heidi. They stayed in The Manor House, Stanbrook's own private residence - ideal for groups of family and friends. 

"I don’t often share many family moments on here, but our long weekend away together was something very special to us. Making precious memories and spending time with the people who matter most.

The Manor House is one of the most spectacular locations you could dream up in your mind. If you’re looking for a getaway for the whole family, siblings, parents, the whole lot, then this stunner will provide the perfect backdrop. You just focus on making the wonderful memories together."

Andrea & Sara - Pretty Little London

Andrea and Sara visited Rhinefield House in The New Forest for a getaway from the city of London. 

"There is nothing like a little escape from the city, right? We spent two wonderful days at the @rhinefieldhousehotel, a beautiful country house part of @handpickedhotels located right in The New Forest. It was so nice to switch off and explore the hotel’s grounds, have long walks in the forest and enjoy dinner and afternoon tea in the beautiful Armada restaurant."

Steph & Moose, the Cockapoo - Life's too short to say no

There's nothing better than making memories with your nearest and dearest. And quite often that special someone in your life is a four-legged pooch, always by your side. Steph and Moose spent some time exploring the East Sussex countryside at Buxted Park Hotel.

Here are a few snaps from their stay and you can see more on Life's too short to say no Instagram.


Elaine & family - Wordy Elaine

Elaine and her daughters stayed at Ettington Park Hotel in Stratford-Upon-Avon. 

"After our soggy day in the Cotswolds we retreated to @ettingtonparkhotel for the night and it could not have been a more cosy and welcoming venue.  My girls are more used to self-catering cottages and were completely blown away by all the little details and gifts - lavender pillow spray, waffle slippers, hot chocolate!

Happily, the sun came out not long after we arrived and I was able to capture the exterior at golden hour - it’s so pretty! If you’re looking to stay in the north Cotswolds or Stratford-upon-Avon area, Ettington Park is super convenient and will definitely make your stay even more gorgeous." Wordyelaine Instagram
