Though cities might now be filled with modern glass-fronted office blocks and with cookie-cutter big name shops, we at Coast & Country hotels can’t resist history and charm. That’s why our hotels have so much character. From Grade II listed buildings to ivy-clad stone-built country manors, Coast & Country hotels have their own histories and many exciting stories to tell.
Many of our hotels make perfect bases for history breaks, in amongst some of the UK’s most popular historic attractions along with one or two hidden gems. Walk in the footsteps of famous authors, poets and playwrights, or admire the beautiful architecture of a historic house or National Trust property.
If you’re planning a history break then why not consider a stay at the Windermere Hotel, the George Hotel, the Charlecote Pheasant Hotel, the St George Hotel or the wonderful Lansdown Grove?
Harrogate’s St George Hotel stands in close proximity to attractions that include Fountains Abbey, The Royal Pump Museum and Harewood House. The hotel is a prime example of Edwardian architecture, in a historic spa town.
The Lansdown Grove Hotel is a Grade II listed building in Bath, complete with a Jane Austen Reading Room with a traditional writing desk. Nearby attractions include Pulteney Bridge, the Roman Baths and the awe-inspiring Bath Abbey.
The George Hotel is a wonderful Northumberland country house in Chollerford, on the banks of the River Tyne. This stone-built hotel dates back to the 1700s and occupies an idyllic spot within easy reach of Hadrian’s Wall and the Beamish Museum.
Set in Shakespeare Country, the Charlecote Pheasant Hotel stands opposite Charlecote Park with its beautiful Tudor house. Walk in the footsteps of one of the world’s most famous playwrights visiting Shakespeare’s Birthplace and Anne Hathaway’s Cottage during your stay in this country manor.
The Windermere Hotel is a Lake District gem, open since 1847, near Hill Top Farm and a selection of historic halls, houses and castles dotted throughout the Lakeland landscape.
For discerning guests with a love of history, there’s no better choice than a Coast & Country hotel break.
