Visit the UK’s most picturesque areas and save up to 50% off summer getaways

Print Friendly

A good country walk, fresh air and the freedom of the open countryside is good for the heart and soul. Escape the day-to-day and discover Britain’s most beautiful National Parks or Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty with HF Holidays.

Stay at 3 or 4-star Country Houses located in the heart of the countryside with superb walks often straight from the doorstep. Drink in stunning views from a lakeside mansion, feast on delicious home-cooked meals made from local produce, relax in a heated swimming pool overlooking the sea, catch up on the day’s events over a local beer in a cosy bar − each of HF Holidays’ 19 Country Houses has its own individual character, whether it’s an elegant Georgian mansion, a historic National Trust property, or a charming seaside Country House.

It’s excellent value for money − all breaks are Full Board and the houses are geared to the needs of walkers with boot and drying rooms, comfortable bedrooms, and sociable lounges and bars. What’s more, there’s an extensive evening social calendar and HF Holidays’ sociable atmosphere makes the Country Houses friendly places to stay.

Enjoy full day walks and leave all the planning and navigation to HF Holidays on a Guided Walking break. Their friendly leaders offer a choice of up to three walks each day, so you’ll easily find something to suit your own energy levels and aspirations. You can even opt for an easier walk early on, working up to harder walks by the end of the week. Relax and leave all the planning and navigating to HF Holidays’ experienced leaders – and all transport to the walks is also included.

Self-Guided Walking

Self-Guided Walking

If you want to delve into the local area independently HF Holidays also offers self-guided Country House Escapes so that you can explore your chosen area at your own pace – you can use the free Ordnance Survey map provided when you book and there are always detailed walking route notes to borrow at the house.

You can book with confidence – HF Holidays has been recognised by Which? the consumer champion as one of their recommenced holiday providers for the fourth year in a row. They have also been voted Best Large Tour Operator in the Guardian & Observer Travel Awards five years running, and in 2014 readers voted them Favourite Specialist Tour Operator in the Telegraph Travel Awards.

For a limited period only you can enjoy the HF Holidays’ experience for up to HALF PRICE as part of their 2015 summer sale.

You’re sure of a warm welcome, so why not try the award winning experts this summer?
