Here, Vogue rounds up the best weekend breaks perfect for a short-haul getaway. Related reading: Explore the best city breaks in Europe to escape to now. Best for: Chocolate-box villages and countryside ambles. Where to stay: For those who like their great outdoors somewhat chicer, a cabin at Soho Farmhouse promises city-to-country luxury and the Hunter wellies provided for guests make sure you look the part too. Barnsley House in the impossibly-pretty village of Barnsley also provides the setting for a dreamy escape nab one of the luxurious garden suites if you can and stroll across the street for an evening at the quaint village pub.
But, really, the only difficulty in the Cotswolds is making your choice of countryside retreats. From the boutiquey charm of Thyme to the cool glamour of Foxhill Manor , you ll never tire of trying them all. Where to eat: The Lords of the Manor hotel, located in the quaint Slaughters an oxymoron if ever there was one , serves Michelin-star food in postcard-perfect surroundings. If a cosy pub is more up your street, the Swan Inn at Swinbrook and the Falkland Arms in Great Tew are both well worth a visit for a hearty meal beside a roaring fire, while The Five Alls is a favourite amongst locals and the A-list alike.
If you only do one thing: Weather-willing, take the picturesque ramble from Upper to Lower Slaughter or vice versa along the banks of the River Eye. Glorious scenery and vintage interiors shopping. Spend a night at Hodgkinson s Hotel in the pretty town of Matlock to feel like you ve stepped back in time to the Victorian era. Better yet, it s just a stone s throw from the town s numerous antique and vintage furniture shops.
For a getaway basking in the region s greatest splendour, try the Cavendish Hotel - owned by and in walking distance of the Chatsworth Estate. Dining in this cosy, 18th-Century inn kept in its original wood-beamed style is a treat and the Sunday roasts are without compare. Visit the chichi farm shop at Chatsworth House and experience the glory of the stately home and its grounds , to take a flavour of the Peaks home. There s a reason it s previously been voted the best farm shop in the country.
For unrivalled, old-school luxury, Claridge s or The Dorchester ; for style and glamour, The Ned ; for a haven in a a prime location, Hotel Cafe Royal ; for something a little out of the ordinary, The Zetter Townhouse ; and for something off the most beaten tracks, The Artist Residence. Where to begin? The gastronomic choice can be overwhelming, but here are a few to narrow it down: For variety and atmosphere, Borough Market hard to pick a favourite but, if we have to, pasta at Padella ; for something special, Galvin at Windows extra points for a glimpse of the Buckingham Palace grounds from its 28th-floor vista ; for a local favourite, Perilla in Stoke Newington.
Chewton Glen — a country house paradise with spectacular views over the forest particularly from its height-of-luxury treehouse bedrooms. The indulgent spa is also an ideal spot to rejuvenate after a day s walking. With an Italian-inspired menu and pretty conservatory setting, it s easy to while away many a lunch or dinner here. Pony hacking is the most interesting way to see the forest. Brockenhurst Riding Stables offer experiences for adults and children of all ability levels.
If you re looking for a rainy-day activity, Ringwood Brewery offers an interesting tour and generous samples. A small-scale city and spa break and beautiful architecture. The exterior may be of the classic honey-stoned Georgian townhouse ilk that Bath is famous for, but the whimsical interiors give it an intriguing edge. The Olive Tree , found in the basement of the Queensberry Hotel, is a favourite with locals and visitors alike, thanks to its seasonal menus of British cuisine and the relaxed, elegant fine-dining atmosphere.
You can t visit the city without stopping by the famous Thermae Bath Spa to experience the hot, mineral-rich spring-waters just as the Celts and Romans did years ago. Dreaming spires and riverside walks. The Cherwell Boathouse — for seasonal delicacies, riverside views and perhaps some punting if the urge takes you. Alternatively, the buzzing Cowley Road in the east of the city boasts an exotic array of bars and restaurants - from Italian pizzerias to Moroccan tapas bars.
Stroll through the picturesque University Parks into the city centre — taking in famous sites like the Radcliffe Camera, Bodleian Library and Sheldonian Theatre — before a spot of shopping in the historic Covered Market. Drakes Hotel is comprised of two beautiful Georgian townhouses set along the seafront and within easy walking distance of the Royal Pavilion, The Lanes, and Brighton Pier. The unique Art-Deco rooms are a highlight — book one with a sea view and free-standing bathtub.
The Flour Pot Bakery is also on the must-try list, serving specialist teas, great coffee and tantalising artisan baked goods fresh from the oven. Be beside the seaside, of course. A stroll along the pier, ice-cream in hand, makes for an idyllic day. Follow it up with a shopping trip in the Lanes - the town s maze of alleyways in the historic quarter.
It s family run and an ideal place to hire with all your friends for a stylish weekend away. Try one of the suites for real luxury. Book a long lunch well in advance at the Sportsman in Seasalter , a gastro pub with a Michelin star, run by chef Stephen Harris and his wife. Make sure you try the poached oysters with pickled cucumber and Avruga caviar. Go for an evening walk along the beach at Whitstable, stop for a pint in the famous pub, The Neptune , and then have a romantic shellfish dinner at the Whitstable Oyster Fishery Company.
As a popular tourist destination, you need to know how to escape the crowds that flock to Cornwall the second that the sun comes out. The Idle Rocks at St Mawes provides a tranquil hideaway in the midst of the Roseland Peninsula, with beautiful interiors and impressive ocean views from its terraces. The working fishing port of Padstow is a must-visit for foodies - and for good reason. It s the setting of Rick Stein s flagship seafood restaurant - where the fish is the freshest you can find and served up in simple, classic dishes - and also Paul Ainsworth at Number 6 , serving Michelin-starred food with a focus on local produce in a beautiful Georgian townhouse.
Sample the local delicacies that the region is famous for - pasties, fudge, ice cream, and scones with clotted cream and jam. Breathtaking beaches and medieval ruins. Fairyhill is an 18th-Century home converted into an exquisitely furnished hotel, boasting a locally sourced menu that rivals few in the whole of Wales. Stop by the delicatessen to pick up a bottle of their own delicious take on ketchup, Catsup.
Five Victorian townhouses form a warren of beautiful old bedrooms, as well as a bistro, bar, cigar shack and whisky room. Shop at 18 Montrose. The Craigellachie Hotel is a home-from-home, deep in the Highlands. Expect the warmest of welcomes and excellent attention to detail - from its charmingly decorated bedrooms to the array of spa treatments on offer. Canine companions are also allowed, if you want to bring your dog along for those long country walks.
For roaring fires, handpicked wines, and live local music at the weekend, head down to the Copper Dog pub. What s more, the produce is sourced directly from their doorstep - from organic Aberdeen Angus beef and fresh fish from the Moray Firth, to Walkers shortbread. Put on your walking shoes and see up some of the most majestic scenery in Britain - from the region s quintessential lochs to dramatic mountain ranges and stretches of wild coastline.
The Bull, Bridport - an s coaching inn-turned-boutique hotel with its own secret cocktail bar. The interior amalgamates contemporary prints with vintage pieces, with a relaxed, elegant vibe. Go to Hix Oyster and Fish Bar, in Lyme Regis, for the panoramic views opt for the terrace as soon as the temperature is mild enough to allow and the renowned scallops.
Have a drink in a local favourite, like the Bull Hotel s Venner bar. We recommend a Dirty Cow Martini, made with milk vodka the whey from the milk is fermented, distilled, and filtered, to make creamy vodka with a kick. By Roberta Lister. By Vogue. By Julia Hobbs.
