The Recommendation Collection launches UK Country House Hotels as its newest installment of exclusive properties and introduces the associated weblog. The blog focused on the best country house hotels and spas across England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales has already several interesting articles, videos, special events and packages that are constantly updated.
The new website, which comes soon, will provide consumers with a way to search for the best recommended country house hotels and spas that match their needs — whether that is location, size, accommodations, or activities. While offering a comprehensive search for consumers, the site will also support participating hoteliers by driving traffic to their site. Initial featured properties include Chewton Glen, Cliveden Manor and Summer Lodge as well as a few in town hotels offering the ambiance of the country including the Baglioni and Egerton House in London.
“We are thrilled to be a part of this collection,” said Chris Ward, Sales and Marketing Director for Chewton Glen. “With a resource to categorize the Country House market and engage consumers — we look forward to sharing the charm and hospitality of Chewton Glen to a broader market.”
Historically, the country house is a large house or mansion that was once owned by dukes, lords, earls and other elites of the ruling class. These estates have been beautifully maintained, restored and turned into hotels ranging in size. Many offer luxurious spa facilities and recreational opportunities such as riding, golf, and tennis.
“Country house hotels are under-represented online and we have set out to fill that void. We intend to be the number one reference site for consumers searching for country house hotel recommendations,” said Cal Simmons, Founder and CEO.
