Overview

The newest addition to the Hip Hotels travel phenomenon, featuring 31 distinctive, serene, and exquisite locations in Great Britain.

Having traveled the length and breadth of Great Britain in search of the ultimate rural retreat, Herbert Ypma has identified a collection of perfect country hideaways.

Whether you want to immerse yourself in the famously lush and beautiful English countryside, take advantage of the fusion menus and coziness of "gastro pubs" tucked into picturesque locations, or hide away in one of the magnificent historic estates built by the British aristocracy, this book invites you to make the most of your stay. All of these UK hotels represent that unique combination of authenticity and panache that defines a true Hip Hotel in their celebration of contemporary luxury as well as the comforts of traditional British hospitality, quirkiness, and local excellence.

Taking a fresh look beyond the big cities, from deepest Devon to the rugged wilderness of the Scottish Highlands, Hip Hotels UK is the ultimate celebration of British style: distinctly understated and imbued with a deep sense of the past. 335 illustrations, 300 in color.

    As an interior design student and anglophile - this is my current favorite design book! The pictures are great and really make you feel as though you are in the British countryside. Very inspiring and a great read for anyone interested in interior design.
