Built for pleasure

Hand Picked Hotels is a collection of 21 country house heritage properties located throughout the UK and Channel Islands. The Collection is privately owned and prides itself on offering a quality four star product differentiated by bespoke service from Hand Picked people. 

Our Country Houses

Each of the hotels are former private residences and all have a Grade I, Grade II or Grade II* listing. These country houses, once local economic, political and social powerhouses, were built for pleasure and now offer the opportunity for our guests to experience the grandeur and indulgence of a country house visit. Each property has been sympathetically restored to ensure their architectural splendour and authenticity has been maintained while at the same time updating the facilities to ensure modern comfort and stylish interiors.

Our Grounds

All hotels are located in private grounds and offer free off street parking. Most hotels are set in over 20 acres, with highlights including Buxted Park in East Sussex set in 312 acres of parkland, Norton House on the fringe of Edinburgh in 55 acres and L’Horizon being situated on the picturesque sandy beach of St. Brelade’s Bay.

Our Health Clubs & Spas
Ten of our properties offer spas and health clubs. Our spas offer a variety of treatments and make the perfect venue for a pamper weekend or day spa visit.  Facilities available include single and double treatment rooms, indoor pools, sauna and steam rooms, rasul mud chambers and fully equipped gyms. For a full breakdown of spa and health club facilities by location please visit the Spa and Health section.

Our Hand Picked Service 

Our Hand Picked teams offer attentive, charming and natural service to allow our guests to feel indulged, at home, captivated and inspired during and after their stay.

Our Rosette Dining 

Each of our hotel’s fine dining restaurants holds 2 AA Rosettes, apart from Norton House which holds three. Our dining can be described as Modern British, with local produce and dishes typical to the area in question. To accompany the food offering, our wine list consists of over 200 wines to suite a wide variety of tastes and budget. We also offer afternoon tea and elevenses which are a great indulgent option whatever the occasion.

Our Function and Meeting Rooms
Each property offers a selection of function rooms, providing a choice of room types and characteristics suitable for weddings, meetings, events or special occasions.  Many rooms are located within the main house and offer original features such as fireplaces, chandeliers and large windows to ensure a memorable setting. All hotels offer free WiFi.

Our Awards

Hand Picked Hotels strives to be the leading UK collection of 4-star country house hotels and has successfully been awarded the prestigious title of AA Hotel Group of The Year 2012-13. In addition to this accolade, eight of our properties have red stars, meaning they are located within the top 200 hotels in the UK and Ireland within their star category.
