Five of the Best British Grand Hotels for families

Live in the lap of luxury at these stunning country retreats where your family can relax and recuperate in lavish style

 1 of 5 


Set amid 1,000 acres of lush Bedfordshire countryside, the majestic setting of Luton Hoo (the latter being the Saxon word for “the spur of a hill”) was a honeymoon venue for Her Majesty, as well as the setting for one of the nuptials in Four Weddings And A Funeral. There’s ample space among the spectacular grounds – designed by renowned landscape gardener Lancelot “Capability” Brown – for children to explore, seeking out the pet cemetery and stepping stones of the Secret Garden, while parents can enjoy the history of the Grade I listed building, indulge at the spa or play a round of golf. Fun family activities include a quiz that will teach you about the estate’s heritage and a tour in the L Hoo 2 number-plated taxi. Prices from £230
