An English country house stay with HF Holidays

Harrington House, Burton on the Water

An invitation for a stay in a country house may  not be part of my solo trips to Britain, but          HF Holidays can  make this a reality.

2014 marks 100 years of walking, house stays and holiday events for more than 50,000 visitors. 

My day visit to Harrington House was arranged by HF Holidays so I could investigate if this solo traveler would fit into a country house stay.

London is a solo friendly city:  museums, theater, solo friendly restaurants and activities to fill your days.  Day trips via train, bus or auto take you to towns from Dover, Bath, Land’s end, Leeds, Oxford, Wincester, the list is endless.  

While scanning the HF Holiday catalogue I imagined charming villages, stone houses, friendly locals and the perfect tea house.
My love affair with England goes back many years.

                                         The lounge allows places to chat or read or play a game of cards

Communal dining allows you to meet the other guests.

Taking the train from Paddington Station in London, to Oxford for a quick change to
the local train for Moreton in Marsh.  This is my first look at a Cotswolds village!   The train arrived late so I missed the hourly bus to my destination of Bourton-on-the-Water to visit Harrington HouseHF Holidays
