Summary

Travel journalist Meg Nolan van Reesema has explored England's most popular cities and farthest reaches to come up with a list of thirty properties exclusive enough to be called hideaways, those hotels and manor houses that are far enough off the beaten path to lend their guests a welcome sense of discovery and privacy. Tucked just above the bustling main shopping street in Hastings Old Town, Swan House is a charming, 15th-century Bed and Breakfast with lovely, refurbished rooms featuring whimsical hand-painted walls, plump white duvets and enough historic detailing like exposed beams, brick lined fireplace and slanted wood floors to remind you the house is indeed a relic in itself. Refurbished by a young, well-traveled couple, The Rectory is a breath of fresh air in classic rural landscape of the Cotswolds. The 17th-century stone house still stands proudly alongside a Saxon church but its interiors have been updated with Manuel Canovas fabrics, wood-paneled walls and striking, contemporary photography. The restored manor house, Hotel Endsleigh is surrounded by luscious, botanical gardens overlooking the River Tamar in Devon. With more than 200 original photographs of stunning interiors set against romantic English landscapes from the moors To The seaside (the book includes properties in Cornwall, Devon, York, Wiltshire, The Cotswolds, Oxfordshire, Norfolk, The Peak District, East Sussex, Lancashire, Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland, Middle England, Lake District, and London), The book is an invaluable guide To The finest escapes in England.
