Tailor-made group travel

With much to see, do and explore on the doorstep, and time to make up for, discover Britain at its best with an authentic group staycation in the UK that is hand-picked for you. 

Groups of friends

Whether you are celebrating a milestone birthday, a baby shower, a stag do, a graduation, or a milestone or you just fancy a break with your best friends, escape with your whole group for a sensational experience. Each of our hotels is brimming with character and offers plenty of activities (no matter what your interests). 

Indulge with a winter spa break, walk the golden sands in front of L’Horizon, explore the New Forest surrounding Rhinefield House, discover the cellars of Stanbrook Abbey – the possibilities really are endless.

Family-orientated breaks

At Hand Picked Hotels, children are just as important as their parents. We provide big comfort for little legs, from mini VIP dressing gowns to complimentary milk and cookies before bed. 

Our interactive children’s menus will keep them entertained during dinner, and for tiny ones, we have all the equipment you would expect to find in your home away from home, including cots, high chairs, changing mats and bottle warmers. You can relax knowing that everything you need from your UK staycation has been taken care of.

Choose your rooms 

Each of our luxury country hotels have feature rooms and suites ideal for two, along with those that are catered specifically for groups, including family rooms, rooms that interconnect, and even entire wings that we can dedicate to you and your party.

Choose your dining and leisure experiences

You may prefer to dine outside on our sunny terraces, inside in our unique restaurants or in a historic private dining room with a tasting menu from our Chefs. Our menus are adaptable, with half portions for those with smaller appetites and any allergens easily catered for.

You will find selected hotels with swimming pools and tennis courts, and all have classic indoor and outdoor games for you and your loved ones to enjoy, including backgammon, giant chess, croquet, Frisbee, badminton and boules. These, and all of our other facilities, can also be incorporated into your itinerary to make your UK staycation as relaxing or as active as you like.

Personalised booking service

Our group holiday planning experts create bespoke holidays, whether that is an action-packed family staycation in the UK or a relaxing weekend getaway with your closest friends.
