The Historic Accommodation Guide

Discover some very special places to stay. Unique, unusual, emotive of times past, yet with all modern conveniences – experience the history and heritage of Britain first hand.

Stay in a castle – or a romantic cottage for two – or tour a region of Britain by boat. Re-discover an age of romance and elegance with a short break, day trip or Grand Tour around the UK with Orient-Express. Or hire a property exclusively for you, your friends and family!

Spend the night in the love-nest of a king, or in a Norman fortress, or on Hadrian’s Wall. There are apartments and cottages to rent, historic castles, country house hotels, baronial bed and breakfasts and cosy country inns. Not to mention Victorian railway stations, narrowboats and many more unusual and unique heritage accommodations!

And new for 2019, we’re proud to announce the launch of our handpicked selection of historic cottages which are wheelchair accessible!

Use the side bar (left) or select by Region and click on the area you would like to visit. Then choose between Castles, Hotels, Country Inns, Bed and Breakfasts, Cosy Cottages or Boats!
