Luxury holidays

Luxury and indulgence

For most of us luxury holidays mean someone catering to our every whim. Luckily for us, England has a long history of hospitality and hotels that do just that. Sleep between cotton sheets with a thread count so high you won’t want to leave your bed, enjoy the pleasures of an egg chef who will poach, fry and scramble to exactly your requirements, and relax in surroundings so elegant you take a photo or two to replicate the look at home. For a more private experience, choose a swanky self-catering abode which includes the services of a cordon bleu chef and daily cleaning service. The biggest challenge you will face is leaving.
