Autumn means long countryside walks, crunching through leaves, changing colours and cosy evenings by an open fire. Ensuring their guests can roam in style this autumn, Hand Picked Hotels has partnered with fellow British, family-owned lifestyle brand Joules

The partnership will see Joules’ bright and characterful wares, ranging from wellies and brollies to enjoy the hotels’ grounds, whatever the weather, as well as dog beds available for guests to use during their stay. Hand Picked Hotels is a collection of country house hotels with 22 properties in beautiful - and largely undiscovered – parts of the UK and Channel Islands. From Worcestershire to the New Forest, many of the hotels are in historic buildings, rich in stories and full of character. These extraordinary properties have beautiful large gardens and grounds with plenty of space to explore and savour the changing of the seasons. 

Joules is a contemporary, country-loving brand that celebrates its rural roots by designing clothes, accessories, footwear, and homeware for today’s family lifestyle. Much-loved for their bright colours and hand-painted prints inspired by nature, the Joules product range has something for the entire family, bringing timeless British style with contemporary twists. 

The spectacular surrounding country and coastal landscapes of the various Hand Picked Hotels, combined with Joules’ characterful yet practical clothing, creates the perfect partnership for stylish staycations. From brightly coloured wellies for adults and kids to patterned umbrellas to brighten even the rainiest of days, Joules’ designs bring fun, colour and comfort to the great British break. With something for all the family, even four-legged guests will be supplied with a cosy Joules dog bed to snuggle up in. 

Julia Hands, CEO of Hand Picked Hotels, explains:  

Much like us, Joules is British family-run business whose brand values of family, outdoors and community reflect our own ethos. We are so proud of our beautiful locations and we want this partnership to be a celebration of the great British outdoors, encouraging couples, families and friends to get together and enjoy the UK countryside, whatever the weather.

Claire Tait, Marketing Director for Joules, says: 

As a British brand that loves exploration and relaxation, we are delighted to partner with Hand Picked Hotels. The brands complement one another so well and our wellies, colourful umbrellas and dog beds will add even more colour and charm to these wonderful destinations. I can’t wait to book a family weekend away.

A collection of specially selected Joules products will initially be available for guests to use at Hand Picked Hotels’ properties in the South East, and rolled out across the portfolio over the months to come.
